    Erratic Running In Traffic Queues DCT

    Noticed today when stuck in long traffic queue that when slowly moving forward in 1st gear, the revs were going up and down (hunting style) but my throttle operation was smooth. Once I got going it stopped, but then started again when stopped again and edging forward. Did this 5 or 6 times. Otherwise running ok. Anybody else had this on a DCT? I did a reset about 300 miles ago. Plenty of fresh E5 fuel earlier that day.  2020 DCT 2,500 miles.  :084:

    Never had that kind of behavior on the CT.

    Could it be because of the fans kicking in to cool the bike down when stationary or moving slowly? Not an informed diagnosis, just a guess.

    People with the F model have had that happen in the past.  New spark plugs fixed it.

    I'm the same as the other guys, my DCT works well in all circumstances.

    IMHO the stock fly by wire throttle , combined with tge frictionless sleeve is so sensitive . Add thick winter gloves,  potholes, assholes in cars braking suddenly and the potential for snatch is amplified.  Most manufacturers include some sort of throttle friction adjustment.  So I find that the popular aftermarket throttle friction gadget is a must . It also saves your aching hands on motorways etc.

    I found the throttle response on my bike to be over responsive and sensitive in the lower rev range and particularly in lower gears.
    I fitted a BoosterPlug module which calmed things down considerably and smoothed things down.
    Also, with the DCT transmission I find it's much smoother in D mode when trundling through traffic at slower speeds. Modern FI motorcycle engines are often over sensitive in lower gears when manoeuvring at low speeds.
