thunk sound

I have a 1985 Interstate and it runs great , today I noticed that if I let the cluch out too fast and hard there is a thunk . The bike shifts through the gears fine and runs great but when you dump the clutch that noise appears ...Is there anything to worry about at this time ....Randy in Brentwood ..

Sounds like maybe some play in the rear drive splines. Not at all sure....someone else will most likely chime in with a bit more knowledge :)
