Clutch Lever No return pressure

I recently took my clutch cable off, and removed the nut bolt assembly from the bevel when i reattached to the bevel nut the bevel nut turns both ways but does not seem to have a return position, just turns back and forth. Once everything was back on the bike the lever had no return pressure just sits where ever you pull it into. Probably something really stupid that im missing, any help would be appreciated. I am probably not using the right terminology so if you have any questions that would help in assisting me please ask.

Let's see if I can help out here. From what I understand is you removed the lever that the clutch cable attaches to at the bevel gear case. If that's the case this is what you can do. Determine the direction the shaft coming out of the gear case would turn if you pulled the clutch in. Then turn the shaft untill it stops. When you put the lever back on the shaft you have to line it up correctly. There is a raised ridge on the bevel gear case. when the lever goes back on the gap in the lever has to line up with that ridge. Install your cable make your cable adjustments. Hope this helps.

or maybe a good question to ask is what makes the clutch lever spring back
or what makes the bevel screw spring back to its normal stop

First off, remove the lever at the engine. The one that works the clutch. Now turn the spline clock wise with right hand. Reinstall the lever at a 90* to the engine. Now re-adjust the cable. Your adjustment is off. There is nothing else wrong.

that with this fixed it i did them together

I has the same happen to me just recently after a tear down of the engine... the fix is easy.
- Remove the cable and the lever on the clucht actuator
- Remove the cover on the external case (the one that looks that you could turn with a quarter)
- Push the clutch pin until stops inside
- Replace the cover
- Replace the lever with the open end aligned with the notch on the case (sorry no photo)
- Attach cluch cable and adjust to correct freeplay

You should be able to operate the clutch normally now.

thank you so much for the help everyone
