Rear sprocket wobble #1
My RT2 seems to have excessive side to side wobble ? Is this normal or shall I investigate?

All of mine have some play. Some a little worse than yours.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

They're bad for that & a stupid system from the start. No easy answer but don't try to pack it sideways tightly as could blow the circlip off & cause other damage. Mine is much worse but the chain guide near the sprocket will guide the chain & it won't de-rail. Does need a wipe of grease where it moves next time you have the wheel out. Or just try to get a squirt of chain lube in that area but might not be possible assembled.
