Play in back wheel

Postby VTR250 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:10 pm

Howdy all

I had the bike up on its centre stand, and while in gear (any gear) with the engine off, I noticed there is abit of rotational play in the back wheel. Is this normal? I have 2 other engines laying around and they also have the same amount of play.
