Are these known to be on the "loose" side of things as in it makes a slight rattle sound with the filter off and engine running?

I had an old Wr400 that had the carb slide crack and a couple small pieces when through the engine......wasn't sure if I was heading down the same road.

You can see the kind of wear that results in cracking and breaking the vacuum release plates as it develops if you pull the carb and take a look at the slide from the engine side.
