Loud clunk when starting - 16 RGS
Im looking for some insight on an issue I discovered this evening. Since the weather was pretty nice for once this spring, I was able to go on about a 50 mile ride after work, and upon returning home, I shut the bike off before pulling it into the garage. Once I tried to restart the bike to park it for the night, it turned over for a second and then abruptly made a very loud "CLUNK" sound and stopped turning over. After the "clunk", all of the gauges reset, and "V INERR" flashed for a very brief second. I tried to start the bike again, and the "CLUNK" happened once more. It finally started normally after the third try.
I naturally shut the bike off and tried to start it again, to see if this was a one off thing, and it was not. I tried starting the bike about 6 more times, with the "CLUNK" happening 3 times out of the 6.
Has anyone else had this issue before? Any information is appreciated.
Thanks for your time
