Default Clutch release mechanism

Hi there,

After putting back in place my primary cover after clutch change. I was doing the cluch adjustement when I heard one ball of the release mechanism fall in the primary. So everything to redo

But when I look closely to the release mechanism there is lot of play in it. So when it is tilted a ball can fall easily. The balls seems ok

See here on youtube

So is it normal or do I need to change the pieces because of to much play?

Thanks

There should be a retaining ring in that groove. When it's there the balls shouldn't fall out.

I'm putting this up just to show a picture of it.

The retaining was installed but it' looks like there is to much play between plates I dont' know if it's to much

Hi there I've changed the release mechanism + balls and everything is good now. The clutch lever is smoother than ever.
