Cam chain guide loose fit?

Recommended Posts

Hello, i was installing the top end on my bike today and noticied that when the cam chain guide is torqued down i can still viggle it a bit, is this normal and it gets hold in place when the MCCT is installed or should i just go ahead and replace it ?

 

Bike has bout 110hours total.

 

Thanks

The guide is meant to move, the tensioner pushes it against the chain.

its normal, its not supposed to be perfectly tight, and if it moves back and forth a mm or two its not a big deal. mine does it too.
