The issue of "clunkiness" can be very subjective. If your clutch is
properly adjusted, then you should be able to shift pretty quietly with
My experience is somewhat different. I find that I get a very noisy "clunk"
from BMW Oilheads when I am at a stop and I shift into first. Similarly if I
am coasting in neutral, and then I shift into 1st or 2nd gear. The newest
generation of Oilheads, the Hexheads, have transmissions that are on par
with Asian's, in my experience -- They engage from neutral surely and
quietly, and the shifter lever feel is smooth with a short throw.
