Got a question for you guys on my new '06 600rr. It only has 500 miles on it right now, but has been doing this since I got it... well since 300 miles when I started riding it a little harder. Whenever I shift hard, or usually when I notice it is if I try to clutch up a wheelie in second gear the bike makes a loud clicking noise like a gear is clanking around or something. I can't tell if this is from the clutch, tranny or what. At first I thought it may of been slack in the chain, but the chain is on properly and everything like that. I can't believe that this is normal, me and my buddies can't figure out what it is. Its just a loud "clank" almost whenever I shift hard or try to clutch it up in second gear. I'm no stunt rider or anything like that, was just goofin around on the bike a little and noticed it and it has been drivin me crazy. Any ideas?

Like everything else, it just needs to be broken it. Put on a couple thousand miles and it'll go away. Mine did the same. Almost everyone else I know made the same noise.

So is it bad for me to be doing stuff like this before the bike is fully broken in, or will it be ok. Don't wanna do something that I didn't know was bad for the bike before it was broke in and have to deal with future problems later.

Change the oil to a synthetic and learn to be smoother on your shifting. Believe it or not it's most likely your timing in the shifting. You just need more time to get used to the bike.

Yeah, I'd take it a little easier on her till it's broken in a couple thousand miles. I won't get in the discussion of RPM's but I'd definitely give the tranny/drivetrain a little more time to wear in before subjecting it to the abuse of wheelies/hard shifts/etc...

Im 300 miles into a new 06 RR aswell. My last bike was a 02 F4i and both had/have the same symptom. It's hands down the "Cush" drive in the back wheel. Theres a rubbery type absorber in there that absorbs shock in the drive train. Takes a while to really break in. Untill it gets a bit more soft, any sudden changes in power will cause a clunking noise. It will disapate in time.

Maybe your shifting up too hard? I got a used 03 w/ 6k on it and after the first 200 miles I couldn't figure out what it was...but it was because I was shifting up too hard...take an easy on the shifter and you only have to pull the clutch in just a little bit not all the way :)
