I have a little (very little) play in the pedal. I was curious if this normal? It slides slightly back and forth leaving about 1/8" of gap between the pedal arm and the pedal exposing a silver bar that holds the pedal to the pedal arm. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Any tips/advice here to get that sucker tight to the arm will help.

Thanks!

You can pop the end cap off (using a flat head screwdriver) and use a socket to tighten the nut that holds the pedal back on tight. They do have a slight amount of play built in from the factor, but 1/8" seems high... it should be about half of that.
