Gear change clunk.

Post  mike1949 on Sat May 02, 2015 12:59 pm

Can anybody help please.
I have a Bandit 1250A/SA
When I start off from cold and select 1st it's nice and smooth. Going along changing up and down is also smooth.
But. When I stop at traffic lights, roundabout etc and put the bike in neutral then select 1st it's one hell of a clunk and sometimes it's like the bike surges forward.
Any help would be appreciated.

first thing i would look at is bleeding out all the old clutch fluid , replacing it with new , 15 min job , then possibly an engine oil chance , i found the Castrol Actevo works well on my 1200 Bandit
