They have all got a little bit!
As long as one has about an 1/8th inch of lever gap / cable slack at the hand lever with steering centered & it does not Pull to Less than zero slack at either full lock LH & RH, it does not matter where the slack comes from.

I just rolled over 85,000 miles on my 1987 -A1 yesterday, still using the original clutch arm. I wonder when the rivet will wear thru? And where I will be at?

Don't send it to me, I don't know how to attach pics or vids. I use friends, like Tom Schmitz or klr4evr.

They are moderators of the forum.
