Love The DCT
When the TCM is replaced with a new one and you turn on the ignition switch, the “D” indicator will be illuminated and dashes (“-“) will be illuminated in the riding mode indicator window. This indicates the clutch initialize learn procedure is required. (Page 11-64)I am pretty sure that the DCT Initialization Procedure pops up in the window if it actually needs it. (check manual) (all dashes come up across the screen which indicates to do the Procedure. Owners are actually doing it as a preempt, before machine computer thinks it needs it. What does it know!!!lol..
If all the segments in the riding mode indicator window are illuminated, (been there, done that,) the diagnostic procedure is to check for DTC, check the PGM-FI, check the DCT, check the ABS, check the front/rear control unit, and check for a faulty combination meter.
Great technical paper by Honda titled; “Development of Dual Clutch Transmission for VFR1200F describes the DCT.Just a educated guess that the many xtra parts to the transmission increases the ("stacked tolerances") of the machine and with initial wear in, adding up ALL the tolerances, increases the total tolerances which are somewhat controlled by oil psi and the system corrects the oil psi to make functions smoother.
