Could someone post the Dct reset procedure please

It will be in the workshop manual somewhere and involve pressing the D-N rocker switch quickly in sequence something like DDNDN but there are other things needed and they vary from model to model (and in some cases model year)
Many thanks
Mike

DCT RESET
  • Start the engine.
  • Select N
  • Stop the engine.
  • While pressing D, switch the ignition on, wait until the yellow ‘engine' symbol goes out on the dash, then release D
  • Press in fast sequence: DDNDN
  • On the dash, the letters D and S should appear together
  • Restart engine, allow it to idle.
  • After a few seconds, the letters D and S should go out.
Job done!

Was there anything else mentioned in the manual James? On the NC it didn't work unless you had got the engine up to working temperature first and on the pre 2016 model you had to keep the throttle closed whereas on the 2016 bike you had to hold the throttle wide open while you pressed the sequence

What does this accomplish exactly?
Is it helpful to perform occasionally?

On the NC bikes they gradually got a bit unpleasant (as in stop/start) to ride at low speed in traffic. A Dct reset every 1500 miles or so seemed to put it back to a lot smoother operation My AT is at 2350 miles now and seems to have developed the same 'issue' but it might be my imagination. Anyway no harm in trying the reset

Talking about low revs slow moving maybe in traffic maybe slowly on a trail maybe moving round s carvpark (parking lot). The transmission would feel lumpy sort of stop-start a bit of hesitation sometimes feeling like the box didn't know what gear it should be in

Since your question was answered and mine is directly related, you'll forgive my thread-jack

I don't mean to be anal Mike, but I still don't have a clear picture; the problem is in the DCT, the bike is shifting for no reason? "Stop-start a bit of hesitation" makes me think engine and since DCT is just a computerized manual I don't see how it would create the event you describe. Sorry but having recently and reluctantly purchased the DCT, I am very interested in any possible issues.

You'd be best exploring the nc700.co.uk forum. There's plenty of discussion of the symptoms, the procedure and the cure. Embee on there is probably the most engineering type so look for his posts. I know he regularly resets his Integra DCT

Hi Mike,

I picked this up on the web. The guys said he used it and it worked. His English was a bit sketchy, not his first language, so I edited and cleaned up the grammar. Pretty sure I didn't miss a sequence though.

If anyone tries this and notices that the sequence is flawed please let me know as I have stored this away in case I need it for when I actually have my new AT circa August when I get home from a long trip away at work.

regards
