My '16 DCT has never stalled,or even felt like it might. I'd agree with above comment that it is likely engine management issue meaning not enough fuel/air/spark etc. Did this happen on very slow acceleration from stopped, very high etc, or in various types of pull aways from a stopped condition., just out of interest. And yes, please post what the service techs find out for you.

I read further down the posts. On mine, the DCT won't shift into gear IF the sidestand is down. I've always presumed that this is a safety feature, since unlike a standard, if you started it and it did go into gear (weil Drive or a Sport mode) it would lurch away of you twisted the throttle when mounting the bike

On my '17 DCT, it happened after the 300 mile break-in period and was the first time I tried to start out with moderately high acceleration. I think I just whacked it open and it stalled before the revs could come up. Up to that point, I had been starting out quite softly and smoothly while I was getting use to the bike.

My working hypothesis is that it's a combination of opening the throttle too quickly and doing it as just the wrong time (maybe the longest time during the 270-degree offset of firing? or maybe it misses a spark once in a while?).

It was similar to when I've stalled with a regular transmission by letting the clutch out too quickly, although the DCT AT didn't lurch forward.

I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become
