My 2000 9r makes a noise when starting off at medium to hard pull offs sounds like it coming out of the gearbox area a kind of clunking to solf popping. Can anyone help.

Does it make the noise at idle in neutral? Lightly revved? Have bike stands? Prop up the wheels and spin the tires to make sure its not a wheel bearing.

Gearbox noise

Nothing in netrual or idle just when driving in low gear kind of like a cracking or tearing noise under a load not when starting off in a light start. Could it be the clutch plates.

I would think if your clutch plates were in bad enough condition to make the noises you're describing you wouldnt be able to shift at all. Just a thought, I could be wrong. If you dont have stands can you roll down an incline with the bike off in N to rule out the chain or wheel bearings? Any way you can post a video?
