Does anyone have this issue? Has happened twice to me. This happens when the engine is at normal temp.

It has happened to several people including me. It seemed to be a problem with low mileage that goes away. Try doing the initialization for the DCT Fred has posted at the top of this board. I think it happened to me last time when I had under 1500 miles. I can't say for sure but I believe that many bikes leave the dealership without being done. End result of initialization is quieter and smoother shifting and I believe the stalling hasn't happened to me since.

The DCT clutch initialize learn procedure is done at the factory. It is not done as part of the delivery/setup process unless problems were discovered during the setup/test ride that required the procedure to be performed.

I'd be raising **** if a dealer had my bike for two months and not knowing how to fix it.

Thanks I will do this when I get the bike back, Dealer has had it for 2 + months now.
I had a dealer keep my new at the time 2014 BMW K1600GTL Exclusive for 3 months during riding season. They then screwed me big time the next time I took it in for service. I have never been back to that dealer since. I is NOCO Motorsports in Fort Collins, Colorado.
There is no excuse for poor customer service!!!!!

The OP (Machgun) said: "Thanks I will do this when I get the bike back, Dealer has had it for 2 + months now".

Machgun, what is your location??


If that's idle stop, it should restart as soon as the throttle is turned -- without using the starter.
The should also be an indicator light come on when idle stop is active.

And yes, if it has it, it can easily be disabled/enabled with the front portion of the 'engine stop switch'.

Can also be disabled in the DIC
pg 61 in manual


Idle stop will only function if the engine is warm and bike has been ridden over 6 mph (10 kph)



Since it is so easy to switch, and since it only works when engine warm -- it could easily seem like it only happens sometimes. Certainly wounldn't hurt to check to see if bike has it.

You let them keep the bike for 2 plus months.
What's up with that?


I would never let that happen to my bike for whatever reason.:smile2:

Muff

I still say the factory cannot and does not do the CIP. If the transmissions and clutch is not at operating temp you cannot do the CIP, so how does the factory do?

It’s a can program that is generic and is close enough to operate the transmission.
