    DCT Clutch Maiantenance

    Apologies if I'm being "dull" here.....

    Am I right in thinking that the DCT model still has consumable clutch plates?

    2013 Bike now has 55,000 on the clock and, whilst never giving me any trouble, after a reset, the bike gear changes are now smoother but it almost doesn't seem to want to grip and pull away as sharply as before...almost like some clutch-slip

    Also when using engine braking on steep descends, the compression isn't as punchy as it used to be.

    I'm thinking "time to replace clutch plates" or am I being paranoid?

    As ever, I'd appreciate the mechanical input - as I haven't got much!"

    TIA

    you have 2 clutch packs, worn in 55000km would be strange. is there slip when you pul away in 6 from say 40kmh?

    50k miles not kilometres!

    No slip at all in 6th

    If it wasn't slipping before then it doesn't sound like the clutch plates are any problem, it's probably just feeling different than you are used to and in a few days / weeks will feel like the new 'normal'.

    mine has done 115000km, no problems. if there is no slip then there is no problem with the plates themselves. Seeing dct has perfect clutch operation and 2 plate packs i would be surprised if you had to replace them before 200.000km if at all.
