Unhappy 750 Bonnie knocking on downshift

Hello fellow riders, I just had my 750 Triumph bobber re-torqued and noticed a knock or a clunk when I downshift from any gear. The bike runs great, no knocking at speed or at idle, just when I downshift.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? Should I be worried?

Thank you for the suggestion. I tried to sign in to post in Classic and vintage but keep getting sent back to a log in page.

There's generally a 1-hour wait time after a new member signs on. That may have caught you out. Try again, should work now.
