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 sequenceDCT 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.
Unpleasant?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 inUnpleasant?
Since your question was answered and mine is directly related, you'll forgive my thread-jackTalking about low revs slow moving maybe in traffic maybe slowly on a trail maybe moving round s carvpark (parking lot).

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 DCTSince 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.

DCT Reset Procedure for CRF1000L DCT
1) Warm the engine up to normal operating temperature (Engine oil temp 50-110C / 112-230F) then STOP it.
Note: If the large “L” (extremely low oil temp indicator) or small “L” (low oil temp indicator) is displayed on the shift indicator then the engine must be warmed up further before proceeding.
With the engine warmed up and STOPPED —->
2) Turn the Ignition Switch ON (with engine stop switch in the run position) (do not start the engine) whilst at the same time holding down D on the N-D Switch. Keep holding the D switch on. The MIL will then come on. Wait until the MIL goes off and release the D switch.
3) Operate the N-D switch in the following sequence:
Push D then release
The PCM is ready to initialise the ‘clutches learning process’ when the “D” and “S” indicators light up AND the “_” is displayed on the shift indicator AND blinks at 2 second intervals.
Note: If at any point you get the Low oil temp indicator (“L”) come on, stop the process. START the engine, warm it back up to operating temperature (so that no low oil temp indicator is displayed), STOP the engine and repeat steps 2 & 3 again.
4) Start the engine and let it idle. The “_” on the shift indicator will start blinking at 2 second intervals.
The Clutch initialising learning process is complete when “_” “D” and “S” indicators all go off.
STOP the engine
Note: The clutch initialisation learning process is unsuccessful if the “_” starts blinking at 0.5 sec intervals, or goes off and the “D” and “S’ symbols stay on. If so, perform the initialisation learning procedure from Step 2 again.
5) STOP the Engine
6) Restart the Engine, Push the D switch, release and check that the “D” indicator comes on. If it does then you’re good to go!
Yep! I'd agree, as using the kill switch doesn't give the DCT time to do what it should do, as opposed to what happens on normal shutdown when using the ignition switch/key.Yeah I think so. Then you have to turn the ignition back on to do the rest of the sequence I think
Yes the procedure works in that everything flashes as it's supposed to - however, I couldn't tell any difference before and after the procedure on my Africa Twin whereas it always made a noticeable difference to smoothness and snatchiness on my various NC'sCan anyone confirm that this works for 2016 bikes? I've tried it a couple of times and can't get the D and S indicators to light up as the procedure says they should. I'm trying it with the bike on the centre stand and the side stand up.
I'm heading off to work shortly, I'll give it another crack when I get there.
