Spline inspection

I pulled the starter on my ‘04 R1100S to inspect input shaft splines. Nothing looked unusual but I could only see a small section of the shaft. There was some black dust but that’s all. Any suggestion to how to better inspect will be appreciated. Thanks, Pete

Tie the clutch lever to the grip. Look into the slot and rotate the clutch disk back and forth with a thin screwdriver. You are hoping to see the disk and the splines rotate at the same time. You don't want to see the disk rotate back and forth with the splines not moving.

Thanks Jim, looks like I have about 1/4 - 5/16 inch movement in the clutch plate.
Good to go for a 2K trip?
Thanks

Can you post a video? If you're describing it correctly I would not go on a trip on that bike. Sorry. How many miles on the bike?

I would hope so. Not a bike that a teenager would have bought new for $16,000
