96 xr200 Kickstarter decompression cam position?

Reassembling my engine, and I'm wondering, which way does hump on the decomp cam on the kickstarter go, strait back?

I did mine a couple of months ago. I think there was a dot on the cam that lines up with the shaft which also has a dot on it. Then you have to hold it in the up position when you slide the cover back on. I think I removed the lever and tightened the bolt that holds the lever back down and then put tension on it when I slid the cover on. Then I removed the bolt and replaced the outside lever and bolt. The manual covers it but it is a bit vague. I think I did a search and looked at some previous post before I figured out how to do it.

thanks tom, I'll give it a try.

That'll do it.

You turn the bolt CCW (off direction) while sliding the cover on.

The cover should close completely by hand, do not use case screws to close the gap!
