Oh yes, those gearboxes are very clunky. Laugh

Not joking: that Rotax engine is not exactly know for being a whisperer and changes gear with a distinctive "clonk". Hot weather (meaning oil in the crankcase becomes even thinner) doesn't help.
Honestly I wouldn't worry, but if you really want to do something check the clutch cable: at 25,000 miles it's most likely still sound but you never know. A worn clutch cable makes for less smooth gear changes and an even clunkier gearbox.
