Just curious... if I am stopped at a light and in neutral.. sometimes while shifting my bike back into first... it really SLAMS into gear.... does this sound normal... cuz it is a little embarrassing.. I don't want people to think my bike is a pc. of [email protected]#$ or I don't know how to ride.

Mine clunks into 1st as well. BTW Qwik, I ran across a 2001 RC-51 signed edition for $6995 the other day.

Nice. I think the '01s were a little heavier than the 02+ models. Plus a little less HP. Still nice. Is that the Hayden signed one?

Yup, my RC clunks into first hard too. Not as hard as my Kawi though.

my bike also clunks into first but every bike I've owned has done it to some extent.

My 03 RC51 sometimes clunks in second as well... sometimes I notice when shifting up to second if I pause or cost in neutral then go to second I will hear a clunk. Not as loud as the one in first gear but a clunk none-the-less.

I don't think it's anything to worry about, could be normal. I don't get any clunking once I get into 3rd and up etc. probably just happens with lower gears. Maybe it happens because we are shifting past neutral to get to second?

If you rev match while you are going into second it wont make that clunk. But 90% of the time you'll get it in first. Its normal.
