So I took a screw driver and pushed the pawl inward, and it slid up, enraging the pawl. I bought some a collection at an estate sale from an old stoner. I think I might have found the tool I needed to get the clip in.

Hahaha, it might be a little discolored on the end, but it'll do the job! Hopefully a little bend in that spring will be the end of the story.

I am sure that clip has held many burning things in its day. I am just happy it could hold that clip

You didn't even drain the oil, did you?

Here’s what I did, to all of you future readers

1. Put the bike on the center stand.
2. Grab either fresh oil for an oil change, or, if it is 2 days old as mine was, grab the remaining 12oz left in the oil jug, catch basin, and a funnel.
3. Grab a 17mm socket for the oil plug, an 8mm deep and short socket, a flat head screwdriver, long needle nose pliers (or in my case, a conveniently constructed alligator clip), and a 10mm socket.
4. Drain the oil (leave the filter unless changing it), and put the plug back in. You don’t want to lose it.
5. Take your 8mm sockets and remove the 6 bolts on your transmission cover (it has the sight glass), and the 1 bolt that holds your clutch cable to the block. Excluding the clutch cable bracket bolt (which is small), going from the front of the bike, which would be the first bolt on the left, here are the bolt sizes, going clockwise.

6. Using the 10mm socket, remove your clutch thing, but be sure to mark where it lines up

7. Take your flathead screwdriver and pry the cover off. It will not come completely off, but enough that you can get to the spring.
8. Check to see how your spring is. My pawl had the spring squished, because it had slid back. Thinking that it applied pressure on the pawl, because it was just barely out of line with the “cog”, I popped the spring out. This is not correct. What happened was the spring slid down towards the clutch pedal, coming out of contact with the “cog”. This stopped the clip from pushing up on the pawl. Here is a crude drawing: you will see that the clip goes behind the pawl, and if done right, the pawl will slide up to engage the cog. I also stretched the spring out before reinstalling, to give it more umpf.
9. Install in reverse order
