Shifting always seems to make loud noises, I can hear guys clicking into gear driving accross an intersection in my car sometimes.

The only time that mine makes much of any noise on a down shift is going into 1st gear. I think it's got something to do with going through neutral and into 1st.

You are using the clutch right? [:p]

You don't have to be faster then the bear, just faster then your friend.

I just got my bike back from its first service and when I downshift I hear a"clank" each time I step on the lever...is this normal or am I doing something wrong.

How about having a hard time shifting to 1st from neutral after a stop light or stop sign?
Clanking is normal because you would have to pull the clutch in or else the bike will stall.
