    final drive spindle movement

    hi
    rsv mille 1999 gen 1.
    I have come across this problem to which I am unsure , so seeking your professional help.
    while changing chain and sprockets I have noticed that the final drive spindle - small sprocket spindle - has movement of approx 1mm.
    i.e. if you pull outwards it has this amount of play.
    now then, I always thought that they are not supposed to have any movement, so is it going to be a problem or am I ok
    thnx

    If itís not leaking oil and all gears are changing OK I would say it is fine.

    Ok thanks ppl
    gears ok /no oil leaking
    Was unsure whether movement would damage/wear the chain.
