Why don't you just leave it in gear at the lights? This way, if necessary, you can get out of the way. Also, this will alleviate the noise (which is normal) that is bothering you.

EDIT: That is why they are asking you if you MSF. It is common safety practice to stay in gear, foot on the rear brake, hand covering the front brake, and bike in gear at all stops.

yeah, its pretty normal, the only times I notice it anymore is when I'm backing out the drive way wince I use neutral. Its really harsh sometimes though on my bike though, like I just dropped a brick on the chain even when I use almost no pressure on the lever.
