Cam chain guide loose fit?

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.

Yes i know that much, but its moveable back and forward away from the engine, thats what i was wondering IF theres supposed to be anyplay there?

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.

Can you post a short video clip of the cam chain guide movement you are asking about.?
