Unknown Spring

I changed the inner tube from my rear tire on my '03 Kinetic TFR the other day and, after putting the tire back on, realized there was a spring-like piece leftover whose location I could not surmise. Does anyone know what it is or where it goes? The bike runs fine w/o it, but it would be nice to know where it goes anyway. I think it might have something to do with the mechanism that switches the ped from pedal to engine mode, but I still can't seem to figure out where it would fit in.

Unknown Spring

Looks like a spring that keeps tension on the drum brake lever. It should be on there so that it holds the drum brake arm on the rear wheel in a position where is provides tension on the cable but holds the pads away from the drum, if that makes any sense. I've never seen a Kinetic, so I'm just surmising here.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot after classes and see if it fits in there.
