XR250R output shaft play

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2001 XR250R. I noticed tonight that the output shaft has roughly 3mm of thrust play (in and out).The shaft spins freely, and I cannot feel or hear any bearing issues. I am unfamiliar with XR Hondas, but this shaft play seems strange. Is this normal, or a sign of bearing failure?

There are multiple thrust washers on that shaft. When they wear there will be side shaft movement. Or maybe they are missing all together?
