G: Gearbox G87/1 Kickstart Return Spring Replacement

The kickstart return spring snapped on my Shadow last weekend, and I've just gone to fit a replacement and note the ends of the spring are different.

My local friendly go-to expert tells me that he thought both ends of the spring were identical, but as you can see from the photographs, these aren't.

Ultimately, what I guess I really want to know is, if this is a modified spring from the Spares Company, and it's the right one, which way up does it fit?
