Yellow engine light will go off very quickly then immediately release the D button.
Last two steps of the clutch initialize learning procedure on page 11-66 in the service manual.I’ve done this procedure twice and it worked really great. The third time I did it after the bike went back to tour the D wouldn’t work. It seemed like it was stuck in neutral. After shutting off and back on it worked fine. I tried it again and the same thing happened. I’m wondering if the procedure worked. Anyone experienced this??
Probably not. You’re getting two manuals for that price; the service manual and the electrical trouble shooting manual that has the colored electrical diagrams and shows the location of all components.Glad it's available, but $166.75? Holy crap! Do they come down in price over time?
My bike had 12K miles on it when I did it. It was starting to shift a bit rough and I had a couple times where it made a clacking sound when starting out from a stop light. After doing the initialization, it shifts MUCH smoother. It made an immediate and very noticeable improvement. Walking speed and reverse also work smoother now. Others who have done it have made similar comments.
Honda does this at the factory when the bikes are new, but I believe it needs to be done again after the clutches are fully bedded in.
Save your self 2 hours at the dealer and it's more than paid for.Glad it's available, but $166.75? Holy crap! Do they come down in price over time?
Do it as often as ya want. It is normal to hear the gear shift changes.How often do folks think this is ok to perform? I did it around 90 miles and it shifted better/quieter but i think now at 1000 miles it is shifting more loudly (clack clack) than before. Do you think this is ok to do frequently or is there risk in performing it too much?
Also I assume i'm just over sensitive too it coming off a CVT bike with no change of gears. Should i be hearing the gears shift - clack clack - abd i should just chill?
Better yet, the bike should sense when it needs this procedure and automatically initiate this on startup or shutdown, with a warning that "clutch initialization in progress". But for now I'm just grateful we can "tune up" our shifting so easily.My point is, Honda should have done this after the assembly was complete. If not by them, then at least by the dealership.
It doesn't seem like it would be all that difficult to add a selection to run this clutch-adjustment procedure as a choice on one of the DCT's Settings menus.Better yet, the bike should sense when it needs this procedure and automatically initiate this on startup or shutdown, with a warning that "clutch initialization in progress".
