I've only seen a few that were off (2?), but they were both loose. Both older too. 99-00 or so. What about the ones you saw. Same vintage as mine, or later?
An 02, roughly 0.20 too tight. Took .10 out of the backlash and still had to take from the cover, so it tells me that it simply wasn't assembled with care. Another one, an R1100RT, also tight but I don't have a note as to how much. So I guess they are older ones.

And I'm accumulating a bunch of 0.70 shims. Any time I see the same shim all the time it makes me think the assembly line just has one box and slaps them together. Not necessarily the case, though.

The loose ones, were they failures? Could you tell anything about how they failed?
