Honda 300EX loose rear caliper bracket?

My 300ex makes a rattling noise when I ride and its coming from the rear caliper bracket which has play in it, I was told it should have some play but I dont believe it should be as much as it makes a rattling noise when I ride, I dont see anything I can tighten to change this nor do I see any kind of worn bushing. Is there something im missing here?

The caliper should slide along the bolts that hold it but the bracket should be secure AFAIK. If you try to move it by hand, what happens?

That video had nothing to do with calipers. Are you trying to sell something? That's why I don't click on random links.

Caliper "bracket" do you know what a caliper bracket is? Its a "bracket" that the caliper mounts to in the video which is an official youtube link you can clearly see a "caliper bracket" which ive said 400 times is loose. So yes the video has everything to do with calipers. Please raise your hand next time you want to speak.

First, we try to help as best we can. Your remarks in post # 5 are a bit too much.

You have brakes on both rear wheels. Is the other bracket solid? It appears that the bracket should be held in place by two bolts. Are they missing or loose?

There is only one set of brakes for the rear axle on a honda 300ex im sorry if you think my response was a bit much but that guy was basically calling me a liar and I dont stand for such things. there are no bolts for the bracket it is held in place by a circlip and a bushing, im guessing just the bushing is to worn and ordered a new one.
