Greetings to the new guy!
Mine is a 2011 and the transmission clunks a little in 1st but overdrive is so quiet that I can barely tell the shift was made. Sometime, I have to tap it twice just to be sure it actually change gears. Of course, now that I changed the primary sprocket to a 14 tooth, I use the overdrive all the time. This is a great bike and you're gonna love it every time you ride. Welcome!
