After I tightened the 2 bolts that hold the plate on, the sprocket feels a little loose if shaken from left to right with respect to sitting on the bike. Front to back it's snug but I don't remember the stock one fitting like that.

The sprocket is sitting on the second (intermost) row of teeth with the plate that spins in the middle and the first row of teeth somewhat exposed. It fits pretty well I just wanted to make sure it doesn't need to be super tight.

Yup, I think it's fine after going over it again. Wow what a difference since I put a shim under the needle at the same time. Totally different bike

Hey there

That loose sprocket feeling is completely norma part of XR life.

Make sure those 2 100mmmm bolts are tight (use loctitie) but the sprocket is designed to float (ie move a little)

It put me off a bit but it's designed to float/move

It cant come off as the 2 bolts would have to come loose and the sprocket would need to turn on its "key".

the sprocket is supposed to have a little play. If it didnt you could damage the shaft. It is completely normal, nothing to worry about.:thumbsup:
