A different "clunking 1st gear" question....

Hi Everyone,

I just picked up a used '17 FZ09 and have noticed a bit on an issue when shifting into first from neutral... I know that clunks are normal so i am not worried about that, but what does concern me is that sometimes there seem to be several clunks. It will CLUNK into gear and immediately clunk again much much softer and in very rapid succession maybe 2-3 times, any ideas what this is or how to fix it??

The bike is a '17 with about 6500km on it.

I should also add this is the first bike i have ever owned with a slipper clutch, so i don't know if that is part of the deal or if this will mean i have a repair bill to foot...
