    Help! 650sx Handlepole spring installation?????

    I'm putting the handle pole back on post bushing install. I frukced up and forgot to check the exact placement of the spring. I know the rubber coated piece comes forward towards the engine, but does the other end tuck in behind the fiberglass crosspiece at the front of the pole, or does it simply set against the top closer to the handlebars?? 1993 sx650. This is the stock spring, not the aftermarket piece that bolt's on seperately.

    Adam, thanks for the great pictures. I have an aftermarket spring kind of like yours. Should i just leave that stock one off? I see you don't have one in your picture.

    You could leave it off, although my pole feels heavy compared to an 05 SXR which is the only thing I can compare it to. Mine might just be worn out. Also it looks like the 87 650 SX (which I have) did not have a stock spring. See how it feels, you could always add it later or replace the aftermarket one.

    Does anybody know if you have to remove the hand pole to install an aftermarket spring on a 650sx? I am trying to install one myself right now, used with no instructions, and can't seem to figure out how to do it w/o pulling the pole. The spring still hits it hard enough with the pole all the way up that you can't get the bolts back in because they're at a 45 degree angle and will obviously strip. Any help would be great as I was hoping to try it out tommorow morning.

    No you do not have too. Do you have the little L-shaped tool holding the pole up?

    The pole is held up with the pin and my gf is pulling it forward to take up that extra 1/4" of play. I don't see any way to do it without pulling the pole, installing the spring, pressing the pole back against the spring and then slipping the bolt thru. What am I missing?
    I'm getting frustrated here. I just finsihed rebuilding a 4 stroke dirtbike(thumper) with no problems, but yet can't get this stupid spring installed.
