I have a kind of dull clunk sometimes as well when I start from a stop in first gear.
For me it sounds like, it is coming from the clutch after I released it fully.

Maybe this helps.

Safe rides,
Jens

Try cleaning out your hydraulic clutch cylinders. If they need a rebuild kit then buy that and install it. That is what got rid of my double clunk that I used to get. This winter I plan on getting braided lines all around so everything works properly. Those old hoses collapse on themselves and makes for sloppy clutch operation. Just my two cents.
