  1. CRF 1000 Engine/Powertrain Technical Discussion
    Have been browsing those of you who have changed either your front or rear sprocket tooth counts, or both, to meet your requirements based on the type of riding you predominantly do. I noticed one post where the poster mentioned you should not change the OEM setup on a DCT AF; but did not state...

    Hi, i bought an Africa Twin DCT 1000 (2018) in December last year. No matter how much i try i cant get used to the low speed handling with DCT. I have tried the different modes and even semi-auto. But i just can’t get the bike to ride smoothly, im even thinking about going back to a manual. Any...

    I absolutely love my 1100 but unfortunately came to the forum in a bad mood looking for info on engine oil leaks for a bike that is only 6 months old with 4500 miles on it. Anyway the bike is going back to the dealer at the weekend with the info I’ve gained from this forum so they won’t be...

    Hello, the chain of my bike was too lose so I adjust it to specs (35-45 mm slack at Center of swing arm). All is in good condition (sprockets and chain). I put WD40 lube for chains with O-X-Z Rings compatibility. Now all works fine and the bikes behaves nicely but the only problem is that when I...

    Hi Justin here, new ATAS '21 ES DCT owner. Love the bike but a little unsure on the DCT for technical off-road. Spent the weekend on another big bike with lots of throttle control in the deep/steep dirt and twisty paths. Not sure I will get used to trying this with DCT, but I have read a lot...

    had to sand the front fork, the shiny park of the cylinder because it broke the seal and leaked oil.

    Hello everyone- This past spring of 2021, I traded my trusty Yamaha Super Tenere 1200 in for an Africa Twin 1100 Adventure Sports. Looking for something new in the ADV and Sport Touring category, I was also considering Triumph's sweet looking new Tigers, Yamaha's T700 and Tracer 900 as well as...

    2020 ATAS DCT - is a jump start safe? Seems like I read you can't bump-start a DCT. So, I bought a "Touring Items Type S" 12v jump starter from Costco, hoping I could I use it to jump my AT in a pinch. The charger is a Li-Ion battery pack with up to 8000mAh capacity, start current is...

    so I was riding home from north yorkshire today on my 2017 AT DCT when I noticed that the ABS light on the dash was flashing. I then noticed that the engine power seemed to be dipping and the bike was jittering. I pulled in turned off and back on again, all was fine for around 5 miles, then it...

    I've been experiencing some strange behavior from my 2019 africa twin dct. I bought the bike new and only started noticing this after about 3000 miles (currently has about 5000). When I reduce throttle at speed (not completely chopping the throttle, just rolling off slightly), the moment I move...

    Hi All, Only bought my Africa Twin a couple days ago, enjoying it so far other than one problem. I saw on here the reset procedure as detailed in this thread: Could someone post the Dct reset procedure please | Honda Africa Twin Forum So naturally I tried it, but mine is always unsuccessful...

    Hello! Confused between a new CB500x and a used 2016 AT with about 20k miles on the clock. Any suggestions on what to look out for in a 2016-17 motorcycle in terms of wear & tear / reliability would be great.
  13. CRF 1000 Engine/Powertrain Technical Discussion
    I own a 2019 crf1000. When riding hard and need to decelerate fast the bike used to downshift helping me slow down just like the way I would do with a manual. I noticed that lately when it downshifts, it revs like it used to do between the gears but when it revs it kicks me forward. I hope I am...
  14. What Did You Do To Your Africa Twin Today?
    Turned up today, currently in the garage trying to work out the best place to install it!
  15. CRF1100 Engine/Powertrain Technical Discussion
    I pored through this forum and many others before I made my purchase and everyone raved about the DCT. I rarely saw anything negative about it. I had the 2018 AFAS non-DCT (before I crashed it) and loved the thing. So after some research I went for the 2020 AFAS DCT, and love everything about...

    Hey guys, I've been having a strange issue with my DCT for a while now. When going over washboards at speed I've noticed the DCT chatters a LOT and the bike acts like it loses power. I can throttle through it, but it almost feels like traction control is intervening (even when its off). Only...

    Hi Everyone, Looking into buying a DCT version of the AT and I’m considering both 2016 and 2018 options. Of course ‘16 models can be found at a 1.5k discount compared to the ‘18 versions. I’m not that interested in riding modes and all the electronics of the ‘18 model, but I’m now wondering...

    After researching, lurking, and asking a ton of questions, I brought home my used 2020 Africa Twin DCT Saturday. I trailered it home 6.5 hours from Jim’s Motorcycle Sales in Johnson City, TN to Washington, DC. If I’d known it would be so warm I would have flown in and ridden it home! I put my...
