Hey guys just to introduce myself before asking the question lol. My wife and I bought a 08 raptor 250 about a month ago and have had to constantly keep putting money into it just to be able to ride and I'm tired of it lol. The previous owners must not have taken very good care of it because I've had to replace both front calipers, rotors,pads, and wheel bearings, rear pads, grips, front tires, front wheel collar and a whole bunch more stuff. Well just today I noticed when riding t was clunking real bad from the rear. I had a buddy follow me and we come to find that the rear brake caliper is moving up and down freely and I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be like that. So my question is what can I do to fix the problem.
Thanks guys in advance

Sounds like axle bearings, jack it up from center of carrier and remove chain spin by hand and see if there is a growl you can hear or feel. The easiest is if you can just move the axle up and down by hand. there is my 2 cents

Yeah that is not the moving part I thought you were talking about. That caliper mounting bracket looks to be missing bolts and the parking brake cable?

The parking brake cable I knew it was missing because I took that off but as far as a bolt I didn't see any spot for a bolt to go in at

Ok I watched the video again and your right I was just an optical illusion. I pulled the break down on the parts look at the spacer that the caliper mounting bracket sits on. there will be a post on the side of the arm it just slips over. Here is the parts breakdown. axle parts.jpg

So I got the bracket replaced and it seems to be much better. I've been riding it for the past couple weeks and its been pretty nice not hearing it slapping around. The only thing is now when the rotor gets packed full of mud it does it but once it gets cleaned out its good
