F650 mainshaft lateral play

Postby Oldbloke » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:16 pm

Hi everyone

Whilst doing some maintenance on my 1998 F650 today I noticed that I can move the gearbox mainshaft in and out by about 2 - 3mm. Is this normal? It is the whole of the shaft that is moving and not just the sprocket. I have never noticed this on any other F650 I have owned, or any other bike to be honest and I'm a little concerned.

Any help would be gratefully received.
