    Also, if you just started and it's in the high idle mode roll the throttle forward and it'll lower the rpms to help shift into first with less clunk.
    I set my cold idle around 1400 rpm.

    Am I the only who likes that neutral to first clunk.
    Maybe I rode 125ccs too long because itís barely noticeable, always had to kick down again just to make sure it was in 1st.

    The positive feedback of neutral to first on 600s and now the Z9 is actually one of my favourite things about riding a bigger bike aside from the other sensations a motorbike has to offer.

    I have to admit loving that visceral clunk  :047: The first time I heard my Z running, after I took delivery, brought me some fond memories as the clutch rattle reminded me of my 71 500 triple.

    Interesting you say this and do correct me if Iím mistaken, didnít the 71 500 triple have a dry clutch? Iíve only ever ridden slippers and Iím Not so fond of dry clutches, especially those on Ducatis which tend to make £20K+ machines sound like a bag of spanners.

    The Z certainly has some distinct sounds but Iíve never heard a rattle from mine.

     The Ducatistas love the sound of their dry clutch rattle. I find it highly annoying.

    Way to spoil the sound of a mighty sounding thunderous V4, throw a dry clutch on it and make it sound broken straight from the factory.


    I love all motorbike engines but the inline 4 cylinder is the one Iíd pick every time.

    It had a wet clutch/transmission unit. Did any of the bikes from that era have dry clutches other than Harley?

    That first gear clunk means that I am beginning a ride!  I love working on making shifts as smooth as possible.  Very satisfying .

    If your bike clunks going from neutral to first, thatís the dogs engaging the next gear. To eliminate this or to reduce this, you can  pedal your bike forward slightly then tap first. The clunk will be gone.
