Gear lash

Anyone else think the GSXS1OOO has excessive gear lash. My chain is adjusted properly and is not worn, putting the bike up on the stand and taking up the slack in the chain, moving the wheel there seems to be a lot of slack in the gears. Annoying when transitioning rolled off to driving through corners, not throttle problem.

Is that what causes the clunk when rolling on & off the throttle at low speeds?

Check this post :

Both of the 2018 GSXS bikes I have had do it, it's the most annoying thing about the bike.
The slack at the rear wheel when you roll it on a rear stand seems comparable to my other bikes, but the other bikes don't make the click/clack under normal riding.
It makes the bike seem mechanically " sloppy ".
