Hi guys,

I own a NC750X 2017 which I've been happily riding so far.

A problem occurred recently with my DCT: it won't at times go into drive when it's in neutral or in neutral when it is in drive (I'm not reving it).
For example, this may occur when I stop at a red light and the bike is still trying to go with the brakes pressed, if I press the N button many times it may go intro neutral but if it does it wont easily go back into Drive.

This occurred after this winter I was caught by surprise by a winter storm and had to deposit my bike with a quarter of a tank filled (I know, bad). It stayed on that tank for about 2 whole months.
When I tried starting it the bike was exhausting short burst of smoke and could not properly start (it would just turn off). I thought ok, needs new fuel.
I refuelled it and after a while the engine started working as usual. I also changed the oil afterwards but the problems appeared before that.

I stumbled upon a DCT reset while trying to fix this, it seems to help but won't last for long.

I would really appreciate any advice here as I'm stuck. Other than that the bike seems to function perfectly well ( gear changes also).

I wouldn't think storing for 2 months would really be long enough even with 1/4 tank of gas to cause problems running. Strange. I've let bikes sit that long at times without cranking, not even on a tender, fire right up and run without issue.

Ditto on the battery, maybe it dropped voltage over the storage period and either needs a good trickle charge or replaced?

Have you checked your battery as a. Low battery can cause DCT problems.
