I had the bike on the lift to check belt tension. As I was torquing down the axle nut, I had to loosen it up a touch and I noticed some play in the links for the shock. Roughly about 1/4" or so, I cant locate any spec for play. Would this be normal?
Its the connection where it pivots on the swingarm

Is #9 a bushing ? If it is , It may be smoked ..... #13 looks like a bearing too , may want to disassemble it for a check . Make sure you have proper torque specs for reassembly , that may be crucial to tightness , and your safety !

I found the same play with removing the rear tire. I can lift the the swing arm up and down. I pulled that pin ( shaft ) and see needle bearing in side but i don't think thats the issue.
The pin just slides in and is held in by a set screw that just stops the pin from sliding out, there is nothing to hold that pin tight! Something should keep it tight. ?
sorry mine is different, ( 13 XCT) but still have the play...
