Still no answer re Loose Sprocketgreenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
Anyone else at all concerned about the fit of their rear sprocket ???. Mine has play between the outer shells of the cush drive rubbers and the sprocket which allows lateral float and potential misalignment of the sprocket in use. The guy from Three Cross says some are like it from new but that doesn't mean it is necessarily correct. I tried direct contact with the factory, not very helpful. Get in touch if you have the same concerns.

The play that the sprocket has is apparently normal. Apparently it is just the same with the 916/996. You may just want to give your Ducati dealer a call, to make sure.

I noticed some lateral play (a couple millimeters) in my rear sprocket as well and was told by my dealer that it was normal. Make sure the nuts securing it are tight, just to be sure. Special sockets that fit the nuts are available at one of the sites that sell F4 parts (I can't remember which).

just bought my second hand f4s a month ago and i to have noticed some play in the rear drive sprocket and have been concerned but this looks pretty common . How about your fuel light ; does it work ? or is this a common fault to .
