Are you pulling the clutch in all the way when you shift? It's somewhat common to hear a little click when you switch gears, but nothing too loud or rough.
thanks for the welcome and yes i do pull the clutch in all the way i sometimes think i make myself think the sound is more than what it really is who knows but thanks for the info i will welcome more if you think of any

Some bikes (even of the same make) are pickier than others about shifting.
I think it (mostly you) will get better with time and practice. The mesh of a bike tranny is so much closer than a car. You have to have the RPM's matched much closer to your shift points.
and thanks too you also jeeps hopefully i will get better with time :cheers:
