my 99 yz400 started making a rattling noise coming for the clutch cover i thought cb gear and removed the side cover (the big one)and found zero play in the cb gear no matter witch way i pulled but i did find what to me seemed to be a lot of play in the clutch basket about 1/8" in and out also if you push on one side of the outer basket and pull on the outher side (from the fingers) this also has play slightly less than if you were to pull straight in and out. the inner hub also moves in and out 1/8" but not side to side the basket seemed tight to the gear behind it the bothed moved together is this normal???? the sound really sounds like it is right behind the clutch cover

Did you pull the pressure plate and check the hub nut?
