2000 VT1100C3 - Gearshift linkage and clutch cable

Im pretty much a novice when it comes to motorcycle work. I got 2 probs that have me stumped. Had to take off the clutch lifter on my 1100 and when i put it back on, the handlebar lever doesnt pull itself back anymore. Im sure i have that spring in the right place. So did i mess up the adjustment somehow?
The gearshift link is a whole different beast tho. I completely need a new one it seems. If ive been looking at stuff right, do i just need to go through the left crank case and the flywheel to replace that and whats the best thing to get the flywheel off. Not gonna lie, ive tried and failed. Thanks in advance. And if anyone has one they wanna sell for cheap, i wouldnt be against it.

Not sure what you mean by the clutch lifter. As far as shift linkage are you speaking about the shift fork? The linkage is an adjustable rod on the outside connected to your shift level. @swifty2014 has posted a number of times about the shift fork.


Your a newb to this so we don't expect you to have all the terminology down so don't be afraid to ask and we will ask back to clarifiy.

Other guys will know your bike better than me, but here is the reinstall of the clutch lifter from the manual.
And if the shifter had been working fine before work done, you probably don't need to replace it, just reset the teeth as mentioned above.

To Ramie. For now, it is just the linkage you attach the shift lever to. Mines kinda....ehhh. Horribly mangled. I wanna say it part 11 on this diagram and if i get my laptop, may be able to upload a pic of it. Ill be sure to look at that post tho to see what i can find.

To Swifty. Yea. I wanna say i had it reinstalled back exactly like that. Tho, that area of my bike looks like it got into a fight with something and lost badly. There was some type of filling around it so maybe removing that messed with it.
