I do recall my 87 K100 clunked into gear. Synth oil helped.

Yeah -- go to synthetics in the gear box and don't forget to have the clutch cable adjusted / lubed and or do it yourself -- if it hasn't been done, it's due.

Lube the ends ofthe clutch cable but do not put anything in it. BMW cables have a Teflon-ish lining which will degrade if you put any lube in there.
