I find it clunky from neutral at a stop sometimes.
Those coming from Harley's need to relearn shifting if that's all you're used to. As you know the clutch pull is way lighter on the K. You only need the slightest tug to disengage the clutch for shifting. It's almost just a thought (I'm thinking about shifting, apply very slight pressure on the clutch lever (1-3 mm pull, yes 1-3 mm, that's it) and shift). Smooth as silk when you get it right- very rewarding. You never need to pull the clutch lever all the way in as you did on your Harley.
I just re-read your post. If you're not coming from a Harley then please disregard all that stuff- don't know why I thought you said that. The slight pull is all you need. There is some noise but not sure what you're hearing.
