    Do you have play in the cush drive?

      The dampers on the NT are quite small compared to other Honda street bikes. Plus, they get hard and shrink just from time. I think the hardest part of the job is sourcing the giant socket.

        If the cush drive cushions are damaged/dissolved, it's not a huge job to replace them. Just need a big enough socket, breaker bar, and torque wrench. Just keep tapping until it comes apart in halves, and keep track of all the washers.

            Any play is too much.
            If yours is moving that much then your damper rubbers are missing.
            They may have disintegrated into dust.
            Do not ride the bike until it is fixed.

            Do you have the Factory Service manual?

              The link to a video in Parc's post #2 shows what a slighly worn cush drive rubber is like. If you have 3 inches of rotation and hear a nice clunk at each point of travel, that means that your cush drive rubbers are completely gone. Mine was like that too. With good rubbers, there should be virtually no movement of the sprocket with the wheel held in place.
