Engaging first gear

Hi Guys,

Have looked around but can't find a definitive answer so thought i would ask the question.

Please bear with me as ive only had the bike a few weeks now and am still getting used to it so some things maybe normal to you but initially to me i'm not sure, im probably comparing to my SRAD a lot of the time.

Not sure if its just me but when i engage first gear it feels like the bike moves slightly from the force of engaging the gear, it sounds quite loud too, is this how it should be, am i just imagining things??

I did a full oil change the other day if that has any relevance.

Interested to hear your opinions.

Mine has always done that too, I think it's normal.
