stupid spring....

So i started the spline lube i found the normal rust and dry splines
But whatwas most shocking was the missing spring(mabey from the factory)



Anyway soa after calling 6-7 places today.i cant find a spring locally so
My question is are there other springs that may fit or can someone tell me the size
Of the origanal so i can try to match something?


I got one on order from bike bandit but it still says on order so might be a while...

My guess is wait for factory spring authorized.
