As topic..

The mainshaft of my honda has a play of about 1 millimeter in and out.

(Hope that mainshaft is where the chain-sprocket is attached?)

Is this normal or will it cost me a fortune to fix?

Thats the countershaft. That is pretty much normal to have a little "thrust" clearance.

Thank you!

I was a bit worried there, haha :bonk:

Now I can buy some performance parts instead :prof:
