unconvenient gap

may be someone can tell me where this gap comes from? It is from inside engine. All in the outer parts are good: the chain, sprockets, wheel damper set.. In the picture you can see how much the real wheel turns with gear on. It is wery unconvenient while riding motorcycle. May be someone has repaired a problem like that, and can tell something uesefull?

Re: unconvenient gap

...... Are you saying that's how much movement you get when the bike is moved in 1st gear with clutch released???

because I'm sure I get "about" the same on all mine
and perfectly normal

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

Re: unconvenient gap

unless you mean that when you have the clutch in and knock it into first its biting a bit? then its probably something to do with the clutch?...

Re: unconvenient gap

Are you referring to the drivetrain lash? Mine probably moves that much, too.

Took me a bit but I think that's what he's asking about, drivetrain lash. Just make sure your chain is properly adjusted and all looks pretty normal to me.

Actually, it's only a couple of inches at most and nothing to worry about.
Probably just accrued wear in the chain, sprockets, cushdrive and transmission.

Re: unconvenient gap

Thank you for your answers, I am sorry I could’t decribe correctly what I want to ask. I dont know those technical terms in english. But I think most of all
understud my question, and thank you for your answers.
The problem is that, there are some free space somewhere in the engine or in gearbox. Just try tu push motorcycle to front and back couple times with gear swiched on. Ypul see that it has some free space tu ride. About 5 cm.
(of cours if your bike has this problem So , I dont know how to fix it, and where is the problem...

Re: unconvenient gap

The movement (the gap) is just because it is a chain drive. There is always some movement possible if the chain tension is adjusted correctly.

If you make it so that there is no movement, the chain would be very much too tight.

If you are concerned you will have to remove the sprocket cover so you can watch the countershaft sprocket and see if most of the lash is in the transmission or primary drive.
