Hmmm Without looking at the specs i would make an educated guess that you either have a bad production rod or pin??? not too sure without touching it. But I'm thinking you are not supposed to have play.
can you grab the piston and the rod and push it down and pull the piston up or twist the rod and piston in opposite directions is there slop that way?
pulling the back always sucks. sorry to hear that.
well just hobbled out to shop I was just looking at new parts and went to get mic and caliper and old wristpin, old wrist pin is 50 mm long, one they gave me is 69 mm long and there bothe .750inch diam guess its another trip to dealer
by the way though thanks for your thoughts kept me thinking honda kept saying it couldnt be their part had me thinking I was putting in crank kit over valve slop when I knew I was right just second guessing myself as I am getting older and not drinking as much
