Rear shock play

I have noticed there is a lot of play in my rear shock on my '04 blade- like the whole rear shock assembly moving about an inch either way. I thought perhaps it had some kind of ball or rose joint in it, but i reckon its a problem. it has 8000 miles on the clock so i wouldnt of thought it to be worn bushes or such, but perhaps it is. I find it strange as its being ridden every day in all weathers and ive found it to be pretty bulletproof. Any ideas anyone?

Re: Rear shock play

I noticed that one day on my mate's '04 so I guess it's normal but it also struck me as odd :-)
