Ever since I bought my bike, it has really clunked when you put it into gear, or just shifting while riding. Is this typical of the 12, or is it something I need to adjust?

First thing to do is check the final drive chain adjustment, it plays havoc with shifting whatever the bike if too slack.

Has it got the right oil in?
Too heavy a grade will not help especially when engine/weather cold.
e.g 20W-50 when it should be 10W-40

Otherwise clutch, check fluid in reservoir, bleed, change fluid, etc.

Check basics before going onto more serious stuff.

Then again someone might come along & say they all do that but I doubt it.
