Gear movement on Clutch basket? 650r

Recommended Posts

Pulled my clutch basket out today,  There is movement between the gear and the basket, Is that normal?

I think there are rubber bush's in there do they wear out?  could that be the problem?

Yes, it is a cush drive gear but movement should be essentially impossible by hand when cushions are fresh.  They will harden and collapse over time creating some play.  

I'm not sure if anyone makes new cushions.  Honda sells the whole assembly only.  To get to them you have to drill out the stock rivets and remove the back plate.  You'd need new rivets and way to set them as well if you did find cushions.  Aftermarket shells are available but use the old cushions and their back plate bolts into place.
