If the shop has any sort of reputation they should take it back & fix it at their own expense, unless you've had some experience with engines find another bike shop you can trust.

if i was to take the side of the head off and check myself,would i be able to see the lock_nut un done,is it hard to fix. or so would that corse the knockin sound if that was the problem. i think the shop that done it dint put it back on propley for them to think i have to take it back to them for them to make more money outer me....yea reeet.the best thing for me is try and fix it myself.

If you had it done at a garage or bike shop, take it back for them to sort out. Sounds like the whole clutch assembly is loose, like the central lock-nut's come undone, i think these are 32mm and you should use locktite 648. Either way, it's gotta be stripped mate.
