big CLUNK when shifting from N to 1?

My bike seems to SLAM or almost have s small grind when I go from neutral to first.

How normal is this? It isn't like a you aren't using a clutch just grinding it into gear, but its definitely a CLUNK that sometimes has an almost grindy sound to it.

The clutch adjustment feels fine, engagement is smooth and the pull is linear. Not too much play in the lever.

The bike has 600 miles on it right now.

Sounds normal to me. Mine has done that from day one and it has several thousand miles on it.

That is a different problem than the OP is having.
OP has a smooth release and engagment, but shifting into gear is the issue
My engagement was not smooth...but shifting into gear was fine. It was when I released the clutch lever it would engage, "BANG" and buck and lurch the bike forward.

Change the oil... I noticed the same thing and it got better after changing the oil.

What I noticed more was it got harder to hit neutral. That was never that hard anyways. Just harder.

It's a bit more difficult to hit neutral from a dead stop. You have to give 'er yet finesse it once she starts to go so you don't just blow by it.
I've made it a practice to shift into neutral while rolling. It's butter if you do it that way.

NORMAL especially when cold
Try freeing the 'stickiness' of the clutch by rolling the bike in 1st, clutch lever pulled in, before you start the engine. This should make the shift to 1st less severe. Or you could start in gear but that is harder on the starter and battery because motorcycle multiplate wet clutches always drag a little especially cold when the oil is more viscous.
