Default Secondary clutch play? 2015 Pro X Switchback Axys

Hey guys, I recently acquired a 15 Switchback Pro X 800ho from my brother. It has a little over 300 miles on it. When I got I noticed it humming or was droning a bit when accelerating and cruising. I took a look around and read a little bit about what could the issues be, perhaps the track needs to be tightened or realigned. Anyway aside from that...

I opened up the clutch side panel and gave each clutch a wiggle and the secondary clutch had a bit of play in it. There was also a gap between the bolt and the secondary clutch, is there supposed to be a shim or washer there to prevent that side to side play?

Any input would be terrific. Would like to play it safe before anything bad happens while riding the Second Winter here in Alaska.

It's in and outward in the shaft, yes. Okay if it's supposed to be that way clears things up a bit!

Yes,your clutch should float on the shaft.I helps your clutches stay in alignment under load.

It's behind me. I believe it's rubbing the left rear side of the tunnel. I bought my sled to the shop today and they should be checking it tomorrow
