please help

i recently bought a 06 600rr with like 3000 miles on it. The bike was riding great for awhile, but now is starting to cause trouble. When i am shifting from N to first there is a clunking sound. It does this same sound when it goes from 1st to 2nd over N. It seems to shift fine when down shifting, or shifting up between 2nd -5th. just has issues with neutral. Any ideas how i fix this?

your saying that it is normal for it to make a hard shift out of neutral to first and while going from 1st to 2nd? really? i feel like the gear box is going to fall out or something.

i had a 250 cc bike that i learned to ride on. I mean i know u feel the shift, but i feel like its more of a clunk, almost like you can feel this dropping feeling through the whole bike. At first i way thinking that the clutch wasn't disengaging. the gear, but it is shifting fine between other gears. so i figured no..

When was the last time the oil was changed ?
What type of oil is being used 10W40 or what ?



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

change your oil. fresh oil makes a world of difference. also it is normal for a clunk when going from N to 1.

you're going from a zero load to a partial load going anywhere from neutral.

it's completely normal to hear a thud or a chunk or whatever.
