    Final drive retainer looseness

    My whole front sprocket for the drive is loose.
    And as far as I can see I can't adjust it in any way.
    I just put on the retainer ring and bolt it tightly but it's like the whole retainer is a bit skinny.

    How can I adjust this?
    Maybe I need a new retainer ring?

    I mean, if I put spacers between the retainer ring and the sprocket, I just move the sprocket closer to the engine.

    I'm totally lost.

    Sorry if my English doesn't make sense!

    Here's a video of the problem:

    Its supposed to be loose, the sprocket is a floating setup on the sohc motor.
