Might be best to remove the fuel tank first .....

Let us know the result.

The T1050 box is quite similar to a Burman in clunk mode.

I had to look that one up!  :138:  They made gearboxes for AJS/Matchless and other AMC models - I did ride one or two but too far back even for me to remember ....

My Ariel FH has a Burman box, as did my old Panther M100. Can't beat a good clunk.

Shakes all the excess oil off your chain before you start riding!   :028:   Which means less on your left leg later ....

Don't forget to tie the clutch handle back while doing this to allow the plates to separate and soak up the oil.

I would ask you if you waited a while, say 30 seconds after pulling in clutch to put in first do you get the same clunk.    Wait at least 20 seconds between pulling in clutch, and then putting in first. Do you get a HARD clunk and the bike move forward.
Support the forum.   :031:

When I was adjusting the clutch again trying to find the sweet spot I noticed that the clunk is far less noticeable when as you have said I held the clutch in for a few seconds more than I would do normally do before depressing the selector lever.  I will try this out on the road tomorrow.  Cheers. :062:
