Hi all,

Just cleaning the new F4 up and doing some basic checks and maintenance and have noticed that there seems to be some play in the rear sprocket. Now, I have compared it to the old brutale which has absolutely no top/bottom/side/side movement which has concerned me a little more. Is there supposed to be play on the F4's rear sprocket at all? I have checked to make sure everything is tight within acceptable torque tolerance and all seems ok on that score. I know from the Brutale that the rear hub can be a focus of financial pain so wanted to ask the question of you guys before I dig any deeper in to it....

Thanks for your help, Gavin.

Please keep in mind that you Brutale and your F4 use completely different rear axles, hubs and sprocket carriers .
Then have a look around through the manuals and various posts, the >10 F4 will have some play in general, it's the amount of play that important.

Thanks Donsy...I have measured and it is not quite 1mm movement so probably just looks/feels more than it really is! Was just concerned as other bikes I have owned have all had virtually no movement but as you point out, they are a completely different design....I will back away from the panic button for now!
