The clank usually happens when engine is hot. It's due to what we have referred too as heat soak. The engine stops up against compression when you stop for gas, then the heat expands the mix in the cylinder that it stopped against, then when you go to start it, it's hard for the starter to push past that initial compression from a dead start. Sometimes it helps to push the bike backwards in gear to get off that dead stop against compression. (That's how we get a speedway bike ready to bump start, roll it backwards until it comes up against compression going back. That gives it a free spin forward before it gets up against compression).
