I think it's a worn out bearing or rod but don't take my word for it. As for the copper pieces, it's fused with the rod so, you would have to get a new con rod.

If you are replacing the con rod, go with the Ninja rod.

Is it possible that its as simple as the tapered collet for the fly wheel isnt seated proper, or requires a shim between it and the front bearing?

Also on the rod thing, I read that the crank pins wear as well on the basic v-specs, perhaps the crank pin is worn.

Do you have the flywheel on?

If not it is normal to have forward to backwards play but it you have the flywheel on you probably have not pulled the crank all the way forward when you put the collet and flywheel on
