Kickstarter ball bearing

Aug 20, 2010
I've searched for this but found nothing.
Everyone says that their set screw on the kickstarter arm falls out and so does the spring and ball bearing...well my set screw is gone, but the spring and ball remained. Had to use needle nose pliers to pull out the spring, but the ball will not come.
I've got new ball bearing, new spring, and new set screw.
Anyone have a tip to get the ball out?
I've tipped the bike luck.
Was going to just remove the arm itself, leaving the rest attached to the luck.
