I had to turn my idle down as well.  Still get a clunk, but I like it.  There's no mistaking that you put the bike in 1st gear.

Suzuki "clunk" into 1st is worse in my opinion.

No way. By far a Harley Davidson clunking into first gear is by far the hardest clunk you'll ever hear out of a motorcycle transmission. Good thing those Harley trannys are just about bullet proof!

I was just comparing to the Kaw, yes Hardly Ablesons are the worst into first. :)

Yet another feature that I really love on this bike.  But have you ever had your indicator go blank?  I have, and that's when the clunk is a good back up lol.
