Hi

I found today that the clutch basket on my monster has been rubbing slightly against the clutch cover. I also found that the clutch basket has a slight play when I grab it and move it side to side. Is this normal? Could someone maybe try if they also have this play? If it's not normal I think I need to get new bearings for the big primary drive gear.

Space out the cover with a washer or two. Ignore the play unless the noise makes you nuts.

I know play between the clutch plate tabs and basket is nothing to worry about but I actually meant that I can feel some play when moving the basket itself when the plates are out. I think it would be in the two ball bearings between the primary drive bear and the transmission input shaft.

I'm not sure if that's a problem or not. If you're near Asheville, come by and we'll both find out.
