Kick Starter Spindle. Installation? XR650R

Xr650R. I was removing my clutch basket and when I pulled the basket off, the kick starter spindle 'popped out".

I followed the directions in the manual and slid it back in and reinstalled the spring.


Now the kick starter doesn't feel right. I goes down when I push it through but doesn't return or align correctly when I pull the kick starter back up.


I taken it apart 3 times and am obviously missing a step.



Any ideas?

Hi i'm not very god speaking english
but i think your problem is the spring
that has insufficient tension
If the kick back half must rotate the shaft with the spring before putting the spring in place
I hope this will help you solve the problem

That was it. With the spindle installed, the spring rested just a bit off the insert hole. So I wound the spring over a full turn, then inserted it into the hole.

That fixed it.
