What exactly do you mean by excessive play? The 690 is fitted with float front disks. They almost always develop some play in them. Some guys have said to just tap the rivets tight again with a hammer, I can't say if it works but it sounds like a decent idea. I just ride mine like it is. The noise doesn't both me.

The bikes on the factory floor have about 2mm of play mine is closer to 10mm tried tapping the rivets but no real improvement guess I'll just have to ride and hope....
