Is it possible to do the reset on a 2018?
I tried, and couldn't get anything to happen after fully warming up the bike and following the procedure.
TIA

Yes I had the same problem, but nothing is different until you have done the DDNDN sequence. If you have done it at the right speed you do get the D and S symbols at the same time in the display.

I couldn't get the MIL light to come on after holding the D switch for 45 seconds.
While holding down the D button I turn on the key....dash lights come on, then some go out 1 second later …...but nothing happens after.

On the NC bikes I am sure that when you start the bike with the D key held down the engine light stayed on after most of the other lights went out. And stayed on for quite a few seconds then when it went out you could release the D-key.
That is not the procedure on the Africa Twin. The engine light goes out just as quickly as it normally would in a normal ignition start up, even if you have your finger on the D-key. But carry on anyway. After you do the DDNDN at the right pace, things start happening.
I don't know why Honda don't alter the instructions. Instead of saying hold the D-button down until the engine light goes off, why not simply say 'Hold the D-key down for 5 seconds'
