90' XR200 Gearshift spindle spring

Can anyone tell me where this spring is supposed to go? The manual doesnt have much of a description and I doubt it just hangs out in there. Thanks!


It gets spread apart and put on the pin in the shifter shaft

Can you elaborate?

Can you elaborate?

YOu see the 2 ends of the spring? Now look at the shifter shaft...see where the hitch pin clip is? the bottom side of that is a pin, post, whatever you want to call it. 1 side of the spring goes on one side of it the other side of the spring goes on the other side. That spring returns the shifter to the middle whether you move the shifter upor down.

The pin is behind the shift fork itself, you can see the pin on Part#9 right HERE.

Okay gotchya thanks guys
