Vertical play in rear wheel assembly?

I have recently noticed that when my bike is on the centerstand, the rear wheel has about a quarter inch play up and down. The play seems to come from the two piece strut below the driveshaft. Is this "normal"? I do not remember it in the past, however I do not recall ever checking for this.

There should be no play in the wheel.

Do you mean that the final drive is rotating upward and the slop is in bushing #14 in the attachment?

I believe that is a bearing, not bushing, but there is an aftermarket bushing kit available that is recommended should that need replacing.

Brucecha is right, he's talking about the 2 bushes on the torsion link NOT the rear swingarm bearings which you might be thinking of.

Both items should be checked after the rear shock has been removed. However the bushes if worn, are the easiest and cheapest part to replace.

Found the problem!
The locnut on the front Torque arm attachment point under the driveshaft was obviously a bit loose. This allowed the mounting hole in the torque arm to elongate. The locnut had also elongated. I have ordered a set of torque arms and will find a new locnut.
