Default derby cover adjustment spring broke

took my derby cover off to paint it and noticed the spring was broken, just the very last ring that goes into the derby cover hole. i removed the broken piece and put it back together . clutch feels fine at lever but havent had a chance to ride it do to snow.. is this little piece of spring that broke off gonna effect anything? spring was still long enough where i had to push on derby cover a little to get it to sit up against case

thanks

If it is what I'm thinking... in the Middle of the derby... it is only to hold the "Locking nut" in position... don't take much pressure for that job... or Replace with anything close... My Hardware Store comes to mind... but really... I would Not sweat it...

yes its the adjustment nut spring the little piece of broken spring was stuck in the hole in the derby cover. thats good to know its only there to hold adjustment locking nut in place there still is enough spring to do that.

thanks

You were lucky that piece didn't drop into the primary cavity. I think you made a good decision to replace it.

I've never heard of one breaking? It's not like they get a lot of action. Makes me wonder...???...

F.W.I.W. if you have an issue with one, and it’s after hours or the dealer is a distance away, you can use a storm door latch spring availible at any hardware outlet, may need to be cut down slightly. We did a “McGyver” repair to Ken Dares ?Sporty down in Kentucky. Somehow his spring and stamped steel nut locker had disappeared. One item was availible at a dealer an hour away while the other at a dealer an hour and a half the opposite direction. Went shopping at Home Depot and acquired the aforementioned spring and a package of stamped steel butterfly shaped wooden screen retainers. Then retainer with its ears cut off fitted over and “locked” the nut in place,(and had a rectangle hole nearly approximating the stock piece), and the bike was back on the road. There were pictures of the whole ordeal posted on site.
