That was it. With the spindle installed, the spring rested just a bit off the insert hole. So I wound the spring over a full turn, then inserted it into the hole.

I can't remember why but you just angle the dip stick to the right while inserting. Then you'll be able to screw it in.
No need to trim.

Removing OEM handguards XR650R. Rattling clutch lever?

After removing OEM hand guards, there is a lot of slop in the clutch lever. I've tried to shim it with a washer etc but it never seems quite right.

Creeping when clutch pulled in.xr650r

What causes this? Clutch is adjusted properly but the wheel still turns when the clutch is pulled all the way in.
I was told maybe warped steel clutch plates?
