I think the clunk is in your brain from the 'shine.
Either get used to the "clunk" or get a different fork. Seriously, I dumped my Vanilla 125 for a Z1 because of that annoying noise. The fork will work fine with the noise, btw.Hecklerboy said:Whenever I'm climbing over roots and rocks my forks make a strange clunking noise on the upstroke. Everything seems tight and nothing is leaking. It's doesn't seem to hinder the performance at all. The fork came new on my Heckler in June.
