General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Re: Hot dct gearbox
« Last post by Plane Dr on Yesterday at 08:50:08 PM »
Mine is a 2016 and I'm not sure how you define hot.  I have commuted in stop and go traffic at 40C without issues to date.

Did a road trip through the desert loaded like a mule in the mid 30C's.

Crosstourer - General Discussion / Re: DCT software upgrade

Can’t stay away eh Bampy? :038:

I think in 14 there were some changes then as you probably know 16 year model onwards the DCT has the 3 Stage sport mode.

Other than that I don’t know.

Curious as to why you ask that?

Used to own a 2012 DCT and was wondering if the software update and different sport modes are an improvement over the original bike

General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Hot dct gearbox
« Last post by navigator1946 on Yesterday at 01:42:29 PM »
I've noticed that the clutch cover on my 2015 model dct gearbox gets very hot during a run. I ride in Sport mode all the time and the box functions normally. I have a 2k mile trip coming up and I'm just a little concerned. Anyone else noticed it? Should I have it checked out?

Hey guys, this one is real a head scratcher and I know exactly why some people say it is not an issue and others say it is a big issue. This issue does not effect all VFR1200x's, I have ridden multiple bikes and found some to be perfectly fine, while others are a complete nightmare. A friend and I spent several hours setting up everything on two different bikes to be exactly the same and no matter what we did, or who rode which one, one bike was perfect and the other was useless. I suspect it is something to do with the thottle mapping or some kind of sensor issue, however since the dealer won't remap or try to fix it I will be selling this bike soon. Yes mine is the one that rides like sh#t, my friends bike is fine, the demo bike I rode for three hours looking for this issue was fine. I've had four different VFR owners ride my bike and they all agree the throttle is completely different from theirs. I know one other owner who's bike is almost as bad as mine. Manual or auto makes no difference some bikes are good some are not.

Before selling it ( :005:) you should try some sort of friction lock cruise control.  I personally recommend the Kaoko unit.  Just a bit over $100USD, it is relatively inexpensive to try and an easy install.  Many owners are using theirs to lightly engage the throttle tube w/o actually holding it locked in a fixed position.  It really smoothes out the jerky slow-speed throttle response.

Hi there, I'm just in the process of negotiating the purchase of a new CrossTourer. Have been in the market for a new bike for a while and almost bought a Moto Guzzi V85TT but it was more expensive and lower spec than the Honda... so here I am!
Owned a Blackbird for 11years then bought a Triumph Sprint GT SE, great bike but a bit "vanilla". Always admired Honda build quality, and wanted a shaft drive tourer, so the CrossTourer is a natural selection for me.
I live near Thorpe Park and ride for pleasure (and Bloodrunners) only.
Hope to meet some of you sometime until then, have a drink on me

Hello. New member. My current bikes are Honda NC750X, and a Honda 2012 Crossrunner. Mainly found this forum looking for hints on fairing removal. Just started deciding on the best course for GPS mount, so far got to handlebar mount, but have to remove the plastic handle bar cover for this - it just seems to be cosmetic anyway. Migrated from vfr 800, but the sporty position was causing me neck pain.

Cheers

Chris
