1098 gearbox question.

G'day all,
My 08' base 1098 has developed some play in the driveline resulting in an annoying rattle sound while riding.


As you can see in the video clip, there is some movement of the forward sprocket before it is opposed by the input shaft. As I understand there should not be any.

This happens in all gears. Anyone seen this before? I havent had time to pull the stator cover and inspect the shift mechanism. Could this be something more sinister like worn/snapped dogs on gears? Worn shift forks maybe?

All will be revealed one day, but I thought I would get some opinions. In the meantime she will remain in the Ducati's natural habitat. The shed.

I'm not sure where your noise is coming from but that play in the front sprocket is normal, every chain driven motorcyle I've ever owned has done that. I had a GSXR 750 that had a worn chain and would make a clunk noise when pulling off from a stop, it might be worth it to look at the rollers on the chain , rear cush drive bushings , and sprockets. Good luck
