All Yammy transmissions are clunky, especially between 1st and 2nd. It's nothing to worry about unless it starts coming out of second under hard acceleration.

try changing the oil to help a bit...bike uses same oil for engine as tranny...who knows how good the previous owner kept up with regular maintenance. Also if you are new to riding, you will eventually get used to shifting smooth.
