    DCT Clutch reset?

    Just completed a search for DCT clutch reset. Came up with this method to reset clutches for African Twin. Looks like you can do similar for the NC. Anyone ever tried this on the CT?

    Method goes like this:

    DCT RESET
    Start the engine.
    Select N
    Stop the engine.
    While pressing D, switch the ignition on, wait until the yellow ‘engine' symbol goes out on the dash, then release D
    Press in fast sequence: DDNDN
    On the dash, the letters D and S should appear together
    Restart engine, allow it to idle.
    After a few seconds, the letters D and S should go out.

    Is there an particular issue where a clutch reset is required?

    Apparently it smooths out transmission especially in traffic/ slow speeds..

    Never had to do it in 13000 miles+ (although I have written the sequence down) but if you do have to then according to our dealer it should then be reset in the workshop. They do this anyway when a DCT comes in for a service or if there is a problem.

    Have you heard of it before? Is it recognised by dealers for the Crosstourer then?

    O.K, so I just found that the correct name for this is "Clutch Initialize Learning". And it is covered in the Service manual. Page 150-30.

    Info above seems correct except the bike needs to be up to operational temp or an L is displayed on the dash and won't work. I think I read somewhere on this forum that the rear wheel needs to be stationary also.

    Hope to give this a try at the weekend when I have time to play with it..

    That's it. Do mine as needed. Needed beeing clutch starting to feel "funny" or indicators AT indicator tells you it's time.  :018:

    You will get the triangle at the D and S indicator all blackened out and that's the AT telling you that MUST do this initialisation.

    The L for "Low Temp" starts out with two horizontal segments then one as you approach operating temperature. No L when you are at the right temp and all is set for the procedure.

    I do mine with the bike on side stand and can imagine that it would be difficult to follow through with the procedure if the bike was moving.

    Smoothes out everything!  :016:

      At my dealer any DCT bike is checked on service etc and yes you can do the reset as stated on the CT but as I say I have never had to do it.
