most bikes have a light jerk or jump when you put it into 1st. as for the clicking afterwards, i'd have to hear it to know what youre talking about.

and if you've got a leak and can do work yourself, investigate. pull thing apart and check.

or take it to a shop

The clicking is the bike trying to find the gear!! instead of having 1 clunk when you pop it into gear it clunks a few times...

Mine has clunked a little into gear since day one. Try changing your oil... it might help.

As for the "sticky" fuid on your rear shock... clean in off... then clean EVERYTHING around it... clean and lubed the chain... go for a ride... and see if you're getting excess chain lube in that area.

Chain lube is sticky... just going from what I know.. haha.

Might want to check your clutch and see if it's out of adjustment while you're tinkering. That'll make it buck a little when going into gear if the clutch isn't fully disengaging.

Make sure your clutch is adjusted correctly.

As PowerGroove said, clean everything spotless first then take it for a ride and see where it leaks.

If you're revving too high or releasing clutch too slow...you'll engage the slipper ...I tink
