shifting issue. getting a weird noise.
recently purchased a '03 600rr and for the first time i took it into the high rpm's and for me high is like 7 or 8k. so i shifted from 3rd to 4th and before it "caught" the gear i heard (and felt a slight vibration simultaneously) a clanking or ticking noise and THEN the bike "caught" the gear and everything was just fine.
now i cant say im an experienced rider. BUT i really don't think it was an issue with me not having the clutch in all the way. im not an idiot and i know how a manual transmission works.
does anybody know what this problem could be?
EDIT: for the record i inspected my teeth and my chain and they looked just fine. Only 9700 miles on the bike, look like originals to me.
