Help with starter clutch/flywheel assembly

I'm rebuilding a blown up DRZ and most annoyingly the bike arrived here already in pieces. 5 cardboard boxes of engine bits.

What I can't figure out is the starter gear that slides onto the crank seems to have too much side ways movement when the flywheel is put on. The movement is about a 1/4 of an inch.

Its almost like there is supposed to be a spacer between the gear and the flywheel or the gear and the crank bearing but I don't have one, the manual doesn't show one and the parts guy at the dealer is reasonably sure there isn't one.

Is this movement normal and i've nothing to worry about?



Cheers Eddie. :smirk:
