Hoping for some guidance here and thanks in advance! When shifting out of neutral into first gear (say like sitting at a long traffic light), there is a rather harsh (to me anyways) engagement going into first gear. This seems to have gotten progressively more noticeable over time. Bike only has 2,600 miles on it and I'm sure or hoping at least it just needs some adjustment of the clutch cable. All other shifting seems to be in order, just that initial "clunk"! Love tinkering with my bike, just not sure where to begin with this one...any guidance would greatly be appreciated!
Same goes if you misshift to neutral and try to get back into gear.
Its simply the difference between the speed of the transmission and the clutch. The transmission dog gear is stationary (in standstil situations), the cutch dog gear is rotating due to the engine oil making the transmission part of the clutch spin together with the engine part of the clutch although its fully disengaged. The clunk you hear is when the dog teeth engage and suddenly forces the cutch shaft of the transmission to stop spinning.
I dont think there comes any major wear from it, as there is not so much weight, and therefore not so much energy, on the shaft connecting to the clutch.
However, the sound is soulcrushing indeed. Why i try to avoid putting it in neutral.

Perfectly normal. And yes, brutal, but normal. Ha ha. That's why after owning motorcycles with wet clutches, you're not bothered my minor normal engine noises that other owners think their engines might explode. Ha ha. By the way, thicker oil exacerbates that issue. I noticed the opposite since I switched from 10/40 to 5/40. Another thing you can do is depress the clutch all the way to the handlebar, to open the clutch plates a hair more. I don't bother with any of that because I know it's not detrimental to the drivetrain, but you can minimize the noise that way.
