Hello, long time lurker here. I'm really hoping someone can help me.
I have a 2012 zx10r. The other day after a short run I noticed there was sideways movement in the rear wheel. I've not noticed any difference in handling, but when I grab the wheel with both hands I can move it side to side by about 1mm maximum. I got someone who knows what they are doing to have a quick check and they said there was definitely a problem, but it wasn't the chain, wheel bearings or brakes, and the wheel wasn't loose. They said it was coming from the linkage but needs to to be stripped down to find the exact problem. I just ride the bike and TBH I'm a bit of a thicko when it comes to mechanics. I'm starting to panic its something serious which will cost a boat load of money. Could someone offer any further insight on this? Or advice as to what it could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated as "linkage" doesn't really give me much to go on; cost/seriousness/location etc?
