Just bought a refurbished asv clutch lever and perch($15 ebay) anway took old one off, put new one on and now there is no tension on the spring where it hooks into push lever. what Im I doing wrong or not doing. took screw out that holds the seat plate in, if i turn that towards rear of bike it has tension but no way to put screw back in. Cant figure it out. so I put it back in the way it was. I looked at my book but it doesnt show or explain it clear enough(I need pictures) the bike is a 2001 426 :confused:

Compare the two lever/perches. The distance between the pocket in the lever for the cable, and the end of the adjuster where the cable housing goes needs to be close to the same. I'm guessing this is an '06-7? On mine, I used the ASV lever only in the stock perch; no such problem.
