Yeah-the bike does make some funny ticking tocking ring-a-linging and some occasional pop poping. However-you mention 'clunking' - in general clunking is not goood. :D
Make sure your chain is correctly tightened, and for gods sake, change the oil on your new bike- with 1000kms you should be ready for your third oil change. Make sure you are not overheating it-a source of clunking sounds for sure....make sure you have changed the filter and both screens.
Adding a skidplate will really turn up the symphony of snarl, and you may start hearing the ghostly voices of XR's past :) coming out when you exit corners or do stoppies, etc.
