down shifting to 1st at 30mph ? you must be testing to see if the slipper clutch works ;) Is the "clapping" heard as you click into first or after while you are coming to a stop? If you use the back brake and lock it up to do a skid, you will hear a clapping noise in the gear box. Now if you are taking off in 2nd from a stop, you will hear a teeth chattering noise which would be coming from the engine. Unless you are feathering the clutch out of 2nd you are definely going to hear it. Mustgang brought up a good point which was to leave it in 2nd while crusing through slow traffic. Shoot, i leave it in 6th when splitting the lanes during L.A. morning traffic. Our bike has good low/mid range torque
