Yes the three springs where replaced by the guy who did the rebuild in '97 (the bike didn't run much since) with the input shaft (splines worn to death) the thrust spring and of course all the bearings. The bike had 120 000 km then and now has around 170 000.
On the invoice there is a saying about a couple of modifications on the selection system to make it more reliable. Dunno what that means... (the parts looks correct for the year and serial of the bike)....
Pull it out and see of that fixes it. It sounds like you won't even have to ride the bike to find out. If that is it, don't put in back in so deep.

So it was put back together with a worn out input shaft?

The only problem I can think of right now that those cams have is the gear on the one cam separating from the cam. Was that welded or brazed?

I don't like the K bike rollers either. I am too use to the plastic. I have only seen a couple of them split.
