you can pull off the outer cover on the left side real easy & see if the spring is still there. you can't see the lever without a borescope unless you pull the rotor but you can feel it if you know where it is. I would bet money it's broken just based on how many I have seen.

The new doo and spring pulls all the slack from the balancer chain,but the balancer gears have worn,allowing the chain to contact the top of the bolt boss inside the case,so,Now Ive got to replace the balancer sprockets,or grind clearance for the chain,I should of left it alone,but so many kept saying check the doo,they didnt say when I changed it,Id have to rebuild the whole set up.but thats where Im at with it,Ive taken a test ride and it seems ok,but every now and then I can hear the chain making contact,and I just cant ride it with out thinking the problem could cost me a whole engine rebuild.and the sprockets are not cheap,Ones 59$,and the other is 62$,I may just break out the dremel tool,and clearance the chain,and ride it another 40,000 miles.but that means taking the cover back off,draining the new oil I just put in,and so on, Oh well.

I have fixed one where the doo and the chain broke... it can make a mess... and I couldn't fix another because to also broke the case
