2020 DCT top gear
on: March 12, 2020, 09:41:33 PM
Took my new Crosstourer DCT out for its first proper ride today and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant .

I have a question though. In sport 3 setting, I couldn't get the bike to select 6th regardless of speed. (Sport 2 kicks 6th gear in about 70 mph)
So I am wondering, does anyone know what speed the bike will select 6th gear in the sport 3 setting?

Obviously this will be manufacturers info or track data, as just like me, I'm sure nobody here ever breaks the speed limits.  :001:

Any info gratefully received, thanks.

Hi Lifeboat,
My (older) DCT does not use the 6th gear in sports mode.
When I drive in 6 in “ normal” drive setting and switch to  sport,  gear changes to 5.

(BTW: I visited Wales and Llandudno several years ago with my bike: beautiful in all aspects !!)

I guess like me, you weren't going fast enough for it to engage.
Which brings me back to my original question.  :027:
