When going over small bumps in the road I have noticed a very light clunk sound coming from the rear of the bike. It is not extremely loud but feels as if the shock or something is bottoming out or similar. Either way, I have tried the search function to no avail. Can anyone help me with where to start on remedying this or if this is a common issue and repair? Thanks

Check the spring on the center stand, if you have one.

If the center stand is sagging, it may thump against the frame as- or just after- you crest the bump.

I literally just logged on to say? Any chance the center stand is flipping up and down? Haha. I'm on my way out to check it. Is this a common issue?

It appears the center stand is the culprit. I wired it up and went for a ride. No more faint clunks. Need to find a new spring as the old one does little to retract the stand back up.

Make sure the rubber baby buggy bumper is still installed.
