Knew it was something simple. Hopefully I can make it look good, being that the hole is on the back side, it should be ok. I have several inquiries out there for a new cover however. Need a new 6902Z bearing... once it gets back together, I know the top bearing just needs setting enough for the circlip, then both gears should spin freely right?

Thanks for the support!
Yeah should spin easy as with barely any effort, seat the pinion enough to still have minimal play but no drag.

top bearing first, then pinion? paranoid that the gears won't catch properly... been a fiasco up til now.

Here, p. 4 and 5 in the thread,

If you want to check to see if that screw did back off you'd have to drill a hole behind the case. There should be a decent gap of a couple mm between screw and case.

It's easy enough to seal up the hole with jb weld when the case is off the bike. Use painters tape around the hole in the shape you want and you can peel while jb is still wet for a clean look. It's also very difficult to see the jb weld when the case is back on.

The grey on black is the jb weld on my case while on the bike.

I will tell you the same thing I used to tell my apprentices... installation is reverse order of removal! But seeing the amount of difficulty you had maybe not!
Put the long shaft with the small bearing and screw (loctited) in first, then tap the pinion with the larger bearing in place carefully checking free play in multiple points until happy. Seat circlip and recheck. Should all spin by finger very easily.

All good mate, glad to help a fellow gasser get the starting system like I know it should work. Knock on wood mine has been faultless hot or cold since new and it has about 2500k and 160 hours.
I would definitely think about sealing the whole system up and running it wet with a breather. Plenty of threads on that. Everything spins up easier and is always well lubricated.
