Does anyone have detailed instructions on how to install the kickstarter assembly in a 87 XL600R? I have a Clymer manual but following it's assembly procedures has gotten me nowhere -either the return spring ends up too loose and it won't return the kick lever all the way - or it's too tight and binds with the ratchet gear spring...... Thanks

Disregard all. I buttoned the cover up about a half hour ago. BTW the Clymer manual is wrong on how to reassemble the kickstarter assembly. Clymer says to turn the assembly clockwise to clear the ratchet pawl - it should say to turn counter-clockwise.....
