"CLUNK" noise.

This is more of a squid question. When ever I stop at a light or stop sign and go from neutral into first gear on my 2010 F4, seems to make a "CLUNK" noise. It is considerably loud. I double make sure the clutch is pulled in completely. Has anyone else experienced this?

My bike does that every time I put it into first gear. I just attributed it to not having syncros.

As a precaution, check your chain adjustment isn't too slack..

In extreme conditions slack chains can cause an excessive clucking from the transmission as first gear is engaged and the loose tension on the chain is taken up.
