You mean movement in the rear sprocket ??
Yes, that' right.
I don't think so nothing overly noticeable ill check tomorrow

I'm assuming that it would move while on the bike with the rear wheel on ??

Yes.
The sprocket should not move at all in relation to the wheel in any direction. Wear gloves and be a bit rough with it. A 1000 cc of big bang in first gear would be. Rear wheel can be on the floor. Best have someone steady the bike.

I'll give it a check tomorrow i'll have my dad or brother sit on the bike and give a good pull on the sprocket in all directions

Quick search shows this to be a common problem with a fix available.

Anti judder rings and 1 friction plate seems to be the fix.

Other simple checks are clutch cable dry/frayed, lever on casing lubricated.

Alright thanks i'll look into that but my main concern would be the crunch noise or scraping noise the clutch makes when moving off sometimes
