95 XR600 Decompressor Mishap???

'95 XR6

Took the head cover off to inspect cam and chain etc due to what i judge to be excess noise.

Looking at the decomp mechanism on the cam it all seemed quite loose...? It did only seem to rotate one way tho.

Put the head cover back on and started up, the decomp pickup(where the cable attaches on the engine) was being moved up and down about 1cm and makes a nasty tapping noise. Does anyone know what ive done wrong?

I took the cover off again to check everything and now the cover doesnt want to sit down square FU£*£ (*%&*(%!!!

Any guidance much appreciated!!

have you got the motor on top dead center so the rockers arent on the lobes of the cam
