I'm a little late on this so excuse me:
The bike is back home after its stint in the shop. $175 bucks. I have no problem with that.
Looks like not only the rinky dink spring was busted, the adjuster arm itself broke. This is a part that applies the force to the cam which swings the chain adjuster gear out to tighten the chain.
My mech says that the chain has half it's life left at 23,000 miles which I count as excellent for how hard I've pushed this bike. The bike sounds great with the whole mess adjusted properly. I've only driven it home so I've got some clean-up service to do on the old girl along with some periodic maintenance like new brake pads and chain degrease and service.
Riding time is here!
