rear rotor and abs ring play

It looks like the rear rotor is attached to the ABS rung with rivets or something like that. I have a small amount of play between the two. I notices it when I was doing my rear brakes. I can grab the rotor and wiggle it left to right and it moves a little.
Is that normal?
thx

Yes - some ring like a cow bell when your riding slow.

Re: rear rotor and abs ring play

Sorry, but is not. Should be on the rim and fixed to it with tree screws and a shrink fit without any play or movement. If this ring is loose or has a vertical play your ABS system can fail.
If loose, is to dangerous, watch it.

Guten tag Manfred,

you understood correctly, but he stated it wrong. The ABS ring is solidly fixed and not attached to the rotor.

Re: rear rotor and abs ring play

It is a floating rotor and should move front to back & side to side a little.

It's the rotor that flexes, not the ABS ring. Got my answer.
thx
