I get that clunck from N to 1st and 1st to 2nd sometimes as well. It is not really bad though, nothing I would worry about, and yes holding the clutch in for a bit longer seems to help with those transitions. The other things I've noticed are... if I just give it a little baby pop up going up from 1st then it will slip into neutral (even in motion). This is not so much an issue, because I know the bike and defenitly do know how much pressure I need to put on the shifter for that to happen. Lastly, Like previous posters had said, If I don't down shift coming into a stop... for example if I stop but am still in 6th gear, then it is tricky downshifting it again. Sometimes I have to let the clutch out a bit to catch... though not always.
