Currently working on my HM 821 SP.

The shift shaft seems to have “excessive”play when wiggled front to back with minimal effort (two fingers).

Very minimal play, if any, when same effort applied up & down.

Is this normal?

Everything is fastened properly; Replaced fork return spring & centering spring.
Will post short demonstration video to YouTube, & post link.

Thanks.

Anyone know if this is normal, & the generator/engine cover with the shift shaft seal is what prevents this movement?

Apparently Chris doesn’t want any one else to know . Why is that , Chris ?

Well actually, I didn’t find a definite answer. I’m going on my own presumptions.

I watched a YouTube video of someone who replaced a fork return spring on an 848;
As he went through the gears to verify that it shifted properly before reassembly, I seen his shift shaft flexing in a similar manner.

So to answer the question, I don’t have an answer, just my presumption. So I’m not going to claim my presumptions as an answer to a question when there is no legitimacy to my answer.

Well, ok, as long as you’re not hiding the truth from the rest of us.
When I saw how it was mounted I assumed the case stabilized it. I have other brands that have a similar situation.
