    I’m a complete novice so I need some advice. When I drop gear into 1st from N (when standing still), it makes a clunky sound. Should the gear change be completely smooth, and little or zero noise, or is a “clunk” sound ok? For my novice ear, it does sound ok but I’m not sure and I would’t want to be doing any damage if avoidable. Thanks. Paul

    Hey Paul, that *clunk* noise is normal. If you are ever at a red light and there’s another motorcycle next to you, pay attention to when they drop into 1st gear. You’ll hear it. And if you look at the chain you’ll see it jiggle as well.

    Glad I found this topic because i just noticed the same situation on mine and beside the huge clunk the bike jump also (almost like it wanna go even when the clutch level is not released)

     

    is it normal ?
