    Honda ctx700n dct noisy upper gear downshifts

    I have had my 2014 CTX700N DCT for a little over a year now with 10,000 miles on it. Recently it sounds like it is trying to make excessive downshifts in the higher gears, especially 6-5 without actually making the shift. I don't recall it doing this before, but I usually ride with my stereo up and just noticed it the other day when my MP3 went dead and had to ride without. Has anybody else experienced this or is this normal and my senior mind just doesn't remember it? Thanks for any feedback in advance.

    Can you elaborate with more details? What symptoms indicate a transmission is "trying" to make a downshift without actually doing so? This doesn't make any sense (to me).
