I think the plate has 3 bolts that holds the bearing and the sensor for the speedometer. I think you have to take the driven clutch off to tighten them.

I think rif7 hit the nail on the head. Go to the link below and look under 2004 sabercat drive shafts and brake assemblies and it would be plate #4. Also, make sure the bearing isn't shot, the bearing on the speedo side of the drive shaft is famous for failing.

THAT PLATE LOOKS LIKE IT i wonder if i can tighten them up without taking the clutch off.its only 1 bolt thats loose.how do i check the bearing?should i use loctite on this? can i just unbolt this clutch and pull it.?????? do the bearings just slide off the shaft or is it more involved than that?
thanks nice site good picture

To get the secondary off just take the belt off, and unscrew the bolt (1/2 I think), the clutch will slide right off. You'll see a round metal piece with a wire coming out of it, thats the speedo sensor and you will see three nuts on it. Those nuts hold the bearing retainer, I believe they are nylon nuts so no locktite is necessary.

You'll need a bearing puller to replace the bearing, and you'll need to take the driveshaft out to do that.
