shifter clicking in 1st gear

Not sure what im doing wrong but sometime when im downshifting to first gear while the clutch is still in, it clicks a couple time like it doesnt want to go to first? Is that normal or am I doing something wrong.

just click harder. all that is is the gears "stopping" when u drop in first. when u pull in clutch with engine running the gears in the tranny are still turning, when u click in first it stops those gears. (thats the slight jolt u feel) the click noises/feeling is the "teeth" trying to engage.

experiment to try. start bike with clutch pulled in and then click to first there will be no jolt, "click". (side note wet clutches may still slightly grab and click, especially if its a cold start or been sittin for 10 mins.)

Rock or roll the bike slightly forward or backwards when you click down. Or the slightest bit of gas. You'll hear it click in. Sometimes the gears won't mesh all the way without a slight bit of rotation.

Sometimes when this happens I let out the clutch just a tad until it gets in to the friction zone and pull it back in and the gear pops right in.

your gsxr is a wet clutch. and often the "click" or "clunk" is the sound of the shifter not being engaged all the way in first. just be firm with the shift into first, but definitely dont kick it in gear

Make sure the clutch is adjusted properly. If its making a ratcheting noise when you're trying to downshift you are meshing the gears.

Otherwise you're downshifting at too high of an rpm and only going to damage the tranny further by continuing that habit.

Sounds like you have too much clutch freeplay.
If you swing by we can adjust it for you pretty quickly, no charge.
