Sprocket rattle

03 800A the rear sprocket and the part it is bolted on rattle around in the housing is this normal? If not what's needed to fix it?

There should be no rattling. Troubleshoot before you put your life on the line.

What were you expecting someone to tell you? So we're magically supposed to tell you what's wrong when you didn't post pictures, you didn't elaborate, and simply said it's rattling? You probably shouldn't be anywhere near a wrench so take it to a mechanic.

What first comes to mind is were the hub dampers left out when the wheel was put back on? Also, jack the rear up and turn the wheel to see if you can create the problem. Any cracks in the hub? Check out the link below. Is this forum for helping or insulting?

I agree with Shores above. 92160 are the dampers he mentioned. Also check the nuts that hold the sprocket on for tightness.
