Will do. Hopefully, they are knowledgeable fixing DCT clutches...
What are the 'no-start' symptoms?
A fairly new non-standard battery draws my attention.
I really wish it is a bad battery but I sincerely doubt it is. When the issue first occurred, I had come to a stop light and the bike was in neutral with no gear displayed on the LCD, gear display was blank but everything displayed correctly. I switched the ignition off and back on a couple times, but the started button wouldn't work and the bike LCD showed that a gear was engaged (I think 3 or 4). I also tried to engage the gear by pressing the D and S button repetitively. Then, it eventually went in gear, worked for a miles or so. I stopped at an other traffic light and then, the gear displayed showed the bike was stuck in 3. I let it cool off for 30 minutes, tried to restart a couple times (after ignition was turned ON, I could hear some weird noise inside the engine, some elector mechanical clicking sounds. I tried to calibrate the clutch a couple times, bike started again, rode it for a mile and it got stuck again in third gear while ridding. I cam to a stop, and then bike got stuck in neutral (also N not display on the LCD), engine running fine, all electrical system fine (headlights, horn, etc...) but D/S mode button and UP and DOWN shifter buttons not responding. Then, I turn of off the engine, ignition off and back on. Gear display shows 3 is engage but started button doesn't respond. The lithium battery is 6 months hold, has been working flawlessly and as I can tell, still has plenty of juice. Pressing the horn with all lights on doesn't dim the light and the horn sounds clear and loud. I'll go to the dealership tomorrow and try to start it on a fresh battery but I am pessimistic. I feel something is wrong the DCT.
DCT Fault. Argh!. If the dealer turns up totally clueless, at least let them know about this potential issue.
I did read through that thread but in my case, not error message comes up on the LCD. The starter won't just work and the bike shows it's stuck in gear 3...
And so I beg to ask... Is there any chance that a weak or faulty battery would make the DCT misbehave while riding? Isn't enough power provided by the alternator?
An intermittent battery connection fault will cause intermittent shift failures as well as no-start failures. A low state of charge could do the same thing. I mentioned the recent introduction of a non-standard battery. If the bike is not ridden long enough at high enough rpms the battery has been in a state of discharge and the battery, while perhaps new and "good" has steadily lost ground.
How long does the bike run each day or week and is there a battery tender or maintainer in use when the bike is not ridden?
