You've got an interesting setup going on there... Never seen it done like that. But nevertheless it mimics everything else in concept.
What would you say the range of your clutch is. Like, if you're looking down at your motor from sitting on your bike, what position is the clutch arm unable to move counter-clockwise anymore? 6:00? 5:00? 3:00 (that'd be pretty bad)? etc. Does it just rotate all the way around without catching anything?

What? There's no way the spring could "grab" the arm to pull it.
EDIT: Is the metal rod underneath that cover intact?
