Just bought a 1991 TW and love it! While checking the clutch return spring (after reading about it here) I found that my clutch return spring is actually broken. I can find the part but really need someone to advise me how to remove and replace said spring. Is this a big job that should be done by a shop, or something I could do?

Thanks, and really enjoy reading the forum!

This isn't a huge job.

You have to remove the generator cover. Than you will see a srew with a bigger head as the other srews.

Turn this srew out (number 22) and than you can pull the clutch lever out to change the spring.

The screws holding the cover on couldn't be budged!

So, I disconnected the clutch cable, slipped the spring over the arm, then did it like a key ring and slipped it around and got it on. May have bent the spring a little, but I think it will hold.



Now I have to change the oil. This an old machine and not sure how well it has been taken care of. This last weekend I bought another TW. This is a nice 2007 model.



Thanks for all the help. Glad you guys are there with some answers for us newbies.
