Logically, yes, my reckoning is that when you hit a bump its subject to ALOT of G Force so it needs some tolerance because if it was locked in one position it would break real easy, but honestly I dont know!
I think theres about 3mm of inward-outward play on my 125s, i'll check that.
the reason i ask is that i had a prob with my bike not staying in 4th the dogs were worn i undercut them though because new ones were far to expensive im worrying that that play would cause it to pop out as well as 4th gear is on this shaft
