    On a similar theme. I've often wondered how a DCT would react to the engine dying when cruising at high speed in 6th gear. I'm thinking lane 3 of a busy motorway :003:

    About a year ago I made a post on this forum about that happening to me.  I made the knucklehead mistake of leaving a rag in the airbox when cleaning the air filter.  :789:
    I took the bike (DCT model) out for a ride and it eventually sucked the rag into one of the air snorkles blocking the butterfly valve from moving, causing a check engine light and the bike to sputter and shut off while in motion. 
    Luckily I was on a 2 lane country road with no traffic and was able to coast onto the shoulder without incident.
    Apparently it defaults to neutral if the engine dies, at least that was my experience.

    That sounds almost reassuring 🤣

    My DCT switched off for no apparent reason a few months back while on a ride with my pals - same thing it defaulted to neutral and just coasted to a safe place to stop. Turned the ignition off, counted to 10 and turned it back on a gain. CT started on the button and has been 100% ever since - bizarre but at least we know what happens if the engine dies without the benefit of a manual clutch.

    That's reassuring. It's always a concern when you can't simply pull in the clutch lever.🤣
