Front sprocket

Hi everyone just a quick question my front sprocket that I replaced about 2500 km ago has a slight rattle. If I take the front sprocket cover off and grab the part that the chain doesent cover I can wiggle it the bolt is tight to spec is this normal?

If it's aftermarket then yes it's normal.

Mine made a little noise so I found a shim just the right thickness to hold it snug. I have also used a big heavy o-ring between the sprocket and washer.

Mine too!! I replace the old factory sprocket with Honda original and has a small play, I think this play is normal.

Absolutely normal for an aftermarket sprocket.

Nah. It'll align itself under motion. Just make sure the sprocket bolt is torqued correctly and you'll be good to go.

Lido - The aftermarket sprocket i bought several years ago did not have this problem. It was an AFAM 20603E17N (17 tooth version) and was the same width as factory production. (Although it still didn't have the rubber bumper...) Can you tell us what brand and part number of sprocket you used so others can learn from this?
