In the process of pulling off the chaincase I noticed that the transmission sleeve gear, and therefore the tranny-side sprocket for the rear chain, has about 2 mm of play in it, as in 2mm along the length of the mainshaft. Is this normal? My concern is that it becomes impossible to reliably align the rear chain if the sprocket can just slide out of alignment again. Mind you, it doesn't slide easily - usually takes a good shove to get it to shift, but still...
