Yes, that's it.
Are you sure the clunk isnt from inside fork ?
My Transalp had a similar kinda issue. Couldn't figure out what it was, until I was mocking around with the rear brakes. The brake pad sliding pin and the eyelets in the pads were all sooooo worn that they were rattling and clunking randomly. Cheap fix was to put some heatshrink tube over the pin. I was going to rebuild the brakes anyway in a little while.
My noise is definitely coming from "underneath me", not up front, that's why I say it's not steering head bearings or a fork issue.
I would bet you are probably hearing the same slap noise most CRF1000L owners are hearing. I have not pinpointed the location myself, i just accept the general consensus that it is caused by the chain slapping... something...
The slap could be my issue. Doubtful it's fork or rear spring related.

The more I look and think about it, the more I think it is chain slap. The length of chain on the long swingarm is a lot of contact to contact. The chain is slapping the chain slider on top of the swingarm. I am going to have someone ride beside me and video it sometime soon. Should confirm what I am hearing.
You are correct.
I have the same noise. I was thinking something was wrong so I started watching it while riding (probably not safe). The noise happens when the chain slaps.
I can live with this.........
So turns out it's the Bumot bash plate. I think I forgot to use loctite on a couple spots. The noise has progressed and I can actually kick the bash plate now to replicate the noise. When I fix it I also want to see if I can modify the mounting with some rubber grommets or something.
