Rotational play in trans output shaft

Last night I had the FD of of my 03 k1200LT. I grabbed the drive shaft to spin it back and forth on the trans and noticed that the is quite a bit of rotational play. Is this normal?

Re: Rotational play in trans output shaft

Yup. With the wheel on you should get about 10-20 degrees of rotation and it changes depending on what gear you are in.
