dead dct
« on: August 09, 2012, 07:45:15 AM »
Collected new dct on Tuesday, took yesterday off in great weather for a full days ride. But with 98 miles on the clock slowing down for a pedestrian crossing in 2nd gear (auto) about 10mph, engine cuts out. Will not restart, flashing bar in 'D , S' indicator sector. 5 hours later back at dealer by AA recovery. Will find out today what the problem is.

What a disappointment for you, hope the dealer can sort things quickly.
Keep us posted.

I've got it back, they found the connection to the kill-switch was disturbed or damaged when fitting the heated grips (part of the SE package), relieved a positive fault was found but also rather angry that I could have been on a busy motorway when it failed. By the way, I loved my BMW gs and the 650 Burgman before but this is the dogs danglies.

Not over impressed by that, seems to be pretty poor workmanship by the dealer, but glad it is resolved for you.

 :138:  Well, easily done when it comes to post-factory fit equipment...the positive news it that its not a build or design fault by the sounds of it.

I understand that when the V4 was launched a few years back there were a few "teething" problems shall we say with the V4 block...I'm assured all the lessons learnt from the original V4 have been taken into the design & production of the CT.

Honda have a great build reputation...let's hope it holds for our beloved CT...

Phew! Bet your glad it was caused by a over-worked under-paid mechanic.
I'm glad they sorted out the metal burr in the crankcase issue before they stuck it in the CT.
