Hi guys

My et2 has some play forwards and backwards about 2 or 3 mil only with a clunk clunk when rotated forwards then back, only about 2 mil play side to side

This normal ? Likes there some space before the drive is engaged

This is seen when on stand, no symptoms when riding

Sorry if asked before

And same backwards free a little then clunk and tighter as chain is felt

i have a new lx50 4t, and it just started doing the same thing... i heard the clunky-clunk when putting it up on the centerstand. my scoot only have 130km, so maybe it is something just settling in? i tried to check the wheel tightness on the axle, but everything seems good...

any help out there? thx!

Sounds like normal gear train "lash" to me. The low mileage pretty much eliminates the chance a worn wheel splines.

Mine had side-to-side play, very annoying and a little scary, especially when leaning over in a fast turn.
