rear suspention movement

when i was cleaning the bike, I noticed that the rear suspention can be slightly moved.
When you grap with your hand the big red spring, You can turn the whole suspention for 1 or 2 millimeters. And when you put the bike on the centerstand and you pull the backwheel up (by hand,verticaly and a little forwerd), you can move it for a few millimeters. You have the impression that something is lose at the beginning of the rearfork.
Now I am wondering if this is normal. Is it only my bike or has any bike this phenomena. Can you guys test this for me. It only takes 1 minute.

many thanks in advance.

Hi, Yes mine does the same, so I wouldn't worry about it. Although I have noticed the very top of the suspension unit where the sensor sits, the polished metal has signs of surface corrosion.

Cheers
