I used to own a 98 ZX9R. I bought it used with about 13k on it and had it for a few months. I noticed sometimes when engaging 1st gear the bike would make a little buzzing noise and then always engage.
I sold the bike to a fella who rode it for over a year and never had any clutch or gear issues.
Today I bought a used 99 ZX9R (11k) and notice this bike does the same thing. I have owned many other sportbikes over the years (GSXR, R1, CBR's, etc) and never noticed any of them engaging like this.
I also owned a 96 ZX9R many years ago and do not recall that bike doing this.
Is this typical for the 98-99 version?
Anyone else's bike do this?
Thanks in advance for any help.

LOL ........ mine just goes "clunk" into first, I have 60,000 on the clock, aside from that it's still going great and I give it shit every time I ride.
