2 stroke bottom end play

I've got the cylinder off my bike and you can rock the conecting rod back and forth slightly. It doesn't move side to side on the pin and there is no movement straight up and down. Just a slight rocking. Is this normal ?

no, doesn't sound normal. Sounds like you have a seized bearing. You should be able to shift it side to side, and rock/rotate it freely without any clicking, or roughness whatsoever. Absolutely no up and down play is acceptable

You have a repair manual right?

Depends on how much per bike but it should have a slight bit of side to side and NO back and forth, sounds like a bad bearing.
