Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I grew tired of the drive chain slinging chain lube and crud up the backside of the engine and my left leg so I made a splatter guard. It fits across the front of the bearing support and covers the drive sprocket on my EZM.
A question for the more knowledgeable EZM folks here: While making the splatter guard I noticed that the bearing in the right side (clutch side) shaft support bracket has drifted inwards towards the clutch by approx. 1/8". I judge this by how far away the bearing snap ring is from the face of the support bracket. It used to be flush against the bracket.
Is this normal? Is this cause for concern that the bearing may loose it's tight press fit in the support hole and start spinning in the support hole? I will keep an eye on it.
