Counter shaft play - in/out - 07 WR450
Posted September 26, 2011 - 09:17 AM
Once I got the bike home I ordered a new seal, I'm in the process of installing the new seal now but I'm wondering about the counter shaft play (in/out), should there be any? Right now there is less than half a mm of movement in and out and I can't remember if that much existed previously. Granted it's not much movement but it doesn't feel good as it clicks back and forth. I'm guessing it's fine but I'm feeling a little paranoid I guess.
Does anyone know the answer to this? I'm concerned that the loose sprocket may have caused some internal damage. If I don't get any replies I'll just put it back together, ride it, and see what happens
Thanks for any help.

Regarding my question on my post above I'm 99.9% sure the play I feel is normal. If anyone has info to the contrary please share

That is normal free play.
What he said..... I checked the bikes in my garage. A little play is normal....
