Often the transmission will clunk when first starting up and shifting into 1st. gear. To help alleviate this, hold the clutch lever in for thirty seconds or so before making that first shift into gear. This should make shifting into first much quieter.
This situation occurs on most of the FJRs, even when new.

This happens when the parts of gear box is not proper due to misalignment. hence service the gear box first.... also change the oil and all the ball bearings of the gear box ... lubricate every parts in gear box.

Wow. Probably the positive and negative connections have gotten reversed in the solinoid and starter motor. Still stuck? I recommend a DIYer's repair manual that shows electrical connections for the starting system.
