Hi all , wondering people's thoughts cleaning the bike today I noticed the spring under the clutch arm was broken Probaly like that awhile , bike drives fine and no issues with gears etc , would this cause any issues if I continue to drive without it , how hard are they to fit does cover need to be removed

Not 100% sure, but I think you may be able to pull the shaft out without removing the clutch cover. If you first disconnect the cable, then rotate the shaft about 90 degrees counter clockwise, or towards the rear of the bike, it may be possible to lift the shaft out. Replacing the spring is then simple. I wouldn't think riding it with a broken spring will do much harm if any, but it is not something I would ignore.
