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.

The dct reset procedure quoted above and in various other places does not seem to work for my 2018 bike. No matter what I do I cannot get the MIL light to come on. Does anyone know if the procedure is different for the new model 2018 bike?

my light doesn't stay on. it just comes on and goes off. once it's come on and went off, i let go of the button and start the rest of the procedure and it works for me

Derrrrrr ... Yes I got the reset to work this morning and it's seemed to cure the DCT problem I had - which wasn't the same as the OP. Mine was DCT creep at idle which seems to have been almost eliminated by the reset.
