yeah it looks like the gear linkage spring. Give me an hour or 2 and I will get a picture up.
The engine in my sisters bike spun a bearing - I suspect anyway. The usual female story, it made a noise then seemed slower, I just full throttled it then it stopped. Changed the engien then last Sunday she was knocked off it by a car who done a hit and run!
