26000 km no issues ... knock on wood
Always replaced DCT filter on oil change
2015 - 23000 miles
Tires/ oil/ oil (and DCT) filters/ chain / and a bunch of farkles but no mechanical issues at all.
Love the bike. Sad to hear what's going on with Telecam.
I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up.
Changed oil and filters (more often than spec.) new chain, checked valves. No problems at all, and 26,200 miles in 25 months, with 1-1/2 months off for a pacemaker. Really like to ride this bike and love the ability to change it's character with the click of a paddle.
Bought a 2013 with only 4K miles on it in May 2017. Rode about 15K miles since (19K in total). Mostly commute to work, 120 miles, and couple LD trips.
DCT works great. A bit "louder" when switching gears, and still nervous when hear lugs while in D.
Last couple months I found myself using MT more often, and I like it.
Instead million dollars, give me million miles!
Now my '16 NC700 has 14.5k miles on it as I only commute <15 miles to work, and with 5 kids my weekend jaunts on a bike are few and far between! DCT has been flawless the whole time. Started riding just using D, then S1 > S2 > S3 then back to S2. After taking the MSF with my eldest daughter I started riding in MT 90%+ of the time. Why MT over the other options? Because I like it!! It will still downshift automatically if I'm coasting up to a light, but most of the time I'm controlling the up/down shifts. 2-6 are butter smooth, 1-2 can be a little jerky if I'm in traffic and hovering around the 15mph point.
Overall, love the DCT. Keep looking at the VFR1200X DCT. When the youngest ones are older I can see one of those being in my future for more long distance touring!! Although that Kawi H2 SX SE with a quick shifter also sounds interesting. Certainly not a DCT, but a fun looking "tourer"!!
