    DCT stalling engine at low RPMs

    I saw several reports about 2021 Africa Twin DCT stalling the engines at low RPMs.

    Are there any such experiences here with Crosstourers DCT ?

    Not sure how it would be able to.  Never an indication on mine that it possibly could.  Maybe in manual?  But even then I would be surprised.

    Not in manual form either. this was never a problem on CT.
    Must be the poor bhp output of the AT :156: How could they tell it was the DCT that was causing the problem?

    The issue is quite real for the 2021 Africa Twin model year ...

    They cannot reproduce the issue at will; otherwise, it would have been easier to escalate it.
    But, seems like the symptoms looked similar to you releasing the clutch too fast in the 1st gear on a Manual version. The engine stalls and the DCT owner has to restart the engine. Some dropped their bikes because they were in the middle of a turn from the traffic lights.
