04 GSX grind/clunk noise when start moving

Hello,
Here is the first question with my new ride/used ride for the season. I picked up an 04 GSX 600 with 2500 miles this past fall. I've managed to get out a couple times this year and have put on about 200 miles. Any way just a quick question since I'm used to dealing with arctic cat in the past. This sled overall runs great. No real compaints although I do notice a slight clunk or grind noise when I move from a complete stop. The machine does not make any other noise other than for that split second of take off which I think might be coming from the chain case area?? Not sure exactley. Wondering if anyone who is familiar with the doo's if what this might be.. Also I notice it after I have switched to reverse and back again. Is it just normal component
noises??
thanks.

on rer sleds the secondary clutch works in both directions.the clunk noise is the secondary clutch when it goes back to the forward cam.when you have the belt off next time move the two halves of the secondary in opposite directions you'll see what i mean.also make sure the chain is tight.

my friends 03 rev is the same way... but check the chain and make sure its tight.. his had alot of slack in it and it made it less noticable when he had the correct tension.

I have a o4 GSX, 1+1. The only thing I don,t like about it is engine repairs. I bought it new and a piston was replaced at 1100 kms., and to-day I just blew another one, at 15,800 kms.

2004 Gsx 600 Sdi Blows Pistons

Anyone had engine failures with the above ? I'm wondering if this is a common fact or just my bad luck. I would welcome any response.
