Problem with AT 18 DCT

Feb 2, 2019
Hello , i have a problem with my new africa dct 18, and i want to know if someone else has the same problem. Sometimes when im on D mode and S mode, and the dct is ready to change gear from 1st to 2nd , i hear the click of the new gear(2nd) but i see that the clutch does not change the gear, and i still have 1st. This happens also when i manually change gears(still on d-s mode), so i need to change manually 2 gears to have 2nd gear. The guys from 2 different Honda workshops , check with the pc the moto and said to me that the dct has no problem and the diagnostic machine didnt found any damage or something.Please help me!

Never heard of or come across this before, but

Sounds like the clutch shortshifts and you end up with a false neutral. There is a clutch initiation you can try to reset it and see if it works.
