If you have an EM doohickey kit I'd get that installed. That OEM spring is toast. As far as the lever it could be one of the newer generation pieces. If it looks 'machined' when you remove it then it could be that some PO installed an EM lever without changing the spring(not a great idea). It needs both the EM lever and the torsion spring to operate properly without failure.

The case material that's removed under the chain is from too much slack in the system due to the spring being out of travel.

The rubber coating material that's coming off of the guides is pretty normal.

Pull the oil filter and check for aluminum shavings. If so, it would also be advisable to pull the clutch cover and clean the oil pickup screen.

Best wishes

I recall there being some imitation doohickey levers out in circulation. If you in fact have a 'new' EM kit, install it.
