I have had a 2016 DCT for the past 6 months, it has 23K Km up and I had a first stalling experience while commuting yesterday morning, Filtered to the front at a busy roundabout and it just so happened it was one of those annoying times when some to55er in a cage felt the need to race when the light went green, I smirked opened the throtlle and was left more embarrased then anything else as the bike stalled and multiple cars whizzed by each side of me as I re-started.Another thing to try is to check and drain the crankcase vent tubes. I had the same problems early on and found that solution. Mine had about a tablespoon of oil in the left side.
After you get a few good miles on it the problem will hopefully go away. My '17 AT took about 1500 miles before it felt like it was broke in good. And its never stalled since in the last 2k miles, knock on wood.
Reading this thread I noticed the post above and on checking the rear vent tube I also had a similar amount of oil to drain. Due to COVID restrictions I have not put much Kms up in the 6 months I have had the bike ( maybe about 4K if that) but did cover ~600 Km in past 2 weeks. Annoyingly my 6 month used bike warranty just expired 2 weeks ago.
I have had the occasional stall on first start, but these did not concern me that much. This stall happened 5 miles into a commute in heavy traffic, so more concerning. I also had two startup stalls along with this yesterday.
Hoping against hope the olil drain may help, but reading this thread does not give me great confidence, I'm pretty sure I read elsewhere when researching the bike before buying that the starter button is prone to failing and causing this issue?
UPDATE: 2nd day after first green light stall above, cold start stall again today, but thankfully no stall during ride.
Some Other notes:
- Fuel level was on 1 bar when 1st day green light stall happened.
- Bike was not on trickle charge preceding 1st or 2nd day and I had been leaving on trickle charge fairly consistently prior to this.
