    General Question

    I changed my engine oil, filters, and final drive oil today.  As I moved it to the larger portion of my garage, I kicked the kickstand down while in drive, front brake applied.  The engine thought about what it wanted to do and then shut down after a few rough seconds.  The shut down was expected.  Thinking about what it wanted to do was not.  The bike then would not start.  No display.  No lights.  Nothing.  I let it sit for about five minutes without doing a thing to it.  The bike restarted without a hitch.  After doing the maintenance I took it for a slow and brief ride around the subdivision.  Just curious if there is anything I should do to the bike in light of what happened.  I am not too concerned but curious if I should be!    2016 DCT.

    Not my expertise area Florida but I do know sometimes the DCT needs resetting. My dealer always resets the DCT after a service.

    Thanks Yasko.  Are you referring to that initialization procedure that is pretty well documented here in the forum?
