The front left caliper is supposed to wiggle as it pushes in the TRAC system under braking. By hand I can moved it by a few millimetres and make it "rattle"

Furthermore all calipers on the VF can move laterally over sliding pins. They can/will corrode/clog up with crud over time (if not inspected and cleaned( making thing solid.
