This method is only a stopgap until one replaces the clutch and is actually really bad for the TOB and the clutch fingers. The TOB is designed to always be spinning, never still. Think about it, if the TOB is not touching the clutch what do you think happens when you push the clutch in at a higher RPM shift? The TOB goes from 0-5000+ RPM in a split second which is hell on it, hell on the clutch fingers and creates a lot of heat . Freeplay kits are a bad idea, period.
As far as the T-45, its a non-adjustable pivot ball. Whole thing needs to come out and have a thorough inspection of wtf is causing it to jump around like that. Could be the TOB is not on the fork right, fork might not be snapped into the ball properly or his friend didn't get the clutch properly seated on the flywheel and torqued evenly.
Also OP, I hope you had him change the flywheel too, if not, pick one up and have it ready to go beforehand. Putting a new clutch in with an old flywheel will lead to hotspots and future issues since it'll never break in properly.
