So I bought a new curado k and noticed it would have a clicking sound twice every 1 rotation.  I pulled it apart and noticed the top drag washer plate has a tiny bit of play around the reel shaft so as it turns it slides down and hits the shaft causing the click.  I have like 4 or 5 other shimanos and never had this issue.  Anyway to remedy this? Or should I just send it back.  I’m assuming the hole in the plate was just cut too big by mistake. 

 

Thanks

Like the others have said, send it back if you can. I have 3 200K's and they all work flawlessly.

The drag washer having too big a hole wouldn't make it click, it's not free floating in there. But if it's new , yeah send it back.

Hard to tell how the key washer on top of the drag in the drive gear would make that noise, but my first Curado K did have a badly deformed hole in it.  The opening, which fits on the drive shaft,  are stamped out by machine and I guess it got caddy wampass in the machine when its turn came.  I sent it to Shimano and they quickly returned a new one at no charge.
