Loose sidestand and/or switch perhaps?

Pretty Much any bike clunks when you go from Neutral to 1st. That is normal, sounds like the bike cuts off cause the stand is either down or the switch connected to it is malfunctioning

The bike will still start if the kick stand is down, assuming the bike is in gear and the clutch is disengaged, obviously if you let the clutch out the bike will hop forward on you, But if you start it in neutral without depressing the clutch and leave the kick stand down when you kick it into first the engine will cut off so you dont drive away with your stand down and dump the bike.

From your description I was assuming you meant shifting down from second while riding.
If it's particularly clunky put it into gear before you start the engine, pull the clutch lever in and rock the bike back and forth to free up the clutch. Then put it in neutral and start the engine.
