play in rear sprocket?

hello 👋, I recently purchased a 2005 sv1000 and I've noticed that when I'm riding it that it seems to happy surge of power and lunges kind of never is it just smooth riding. upon investigation I discovered that the Sprocket in the rear has play in it between the sprocket and the rim how bad is this how much do you think it's going to cost me to fix. thank you guys in advance.

Welcome to the forum! You might just need a new cush drive. It's black rubber pieces that go behind the sprocket. You'll have to remove the rear wheel to take it out to inspect. Good luck!

Search for "SV1000 cush drive" to see pics of it.

While you are at it, replace the bearing in the sprocket carrier...... it will have been pulled out of shape if there is an "wobble" you can detect
in the sprocket, side to side movement that is.....

One owner..... 300,000kms and counting... yes, that much..........

I had the same issue with the '04 SV1000S I picked up recently. Mileage was at ~29k for reference. A new set of OEM cush drive rubbers are in the neighborhood of $40 and are easy to swap when you pull the rear wheel. It would also be worth checking the bearing like Missing Link mentioned
