If you have actually taken the two pieces of the release mechanism apart, it can be put together two ways. This will result in the problem you describe. Take the two halves apart, (again, be careful of the tiny ball bearings), and turn the worm gear 180 degrees before screwing the two halves together. The mechanism has a thin steel sleeve in there, with a small tab sticking out near the adjuster screw, barely visible. If I remember correctly from my sv, that tab pointed towards the front when installed. If you search through the sv website there may be a photo.
