  • DCT Glitch/Grind pulling off line

    I have just over 3K in miles on my 2018 DCT (had it serviced at 1K) and I experienced a DCT Glitch or Grind when pulling off the line. This didn't happen when the engine or tranny was cold, but well into my rides. As I hit the throttle to accelerate, from a stand still at a light, in "D" The bike grinded it's gears quickly then set and stopped grinding with no noticeable power loss, drag, hesitation or lurch. The grind was loud and strong enough that I felt it through the throttle and left grip. Almost as if I didn't pull in a manual clutch. Remember, I have a DCT. This happened once in the middle of a 100+ mile ride, then again on the next day in the middle of my ride. Before I bring it in for service, I thought I'd ask my DCT brethren if this has happened to them.

    Sounds like you need 2018 Honda Gold Wing DCT Clutch Initialization

          YESSSSS!!!!! I did the clutch initialization just as the video link showed and I think that was it. Now, I only rode for about an hour and a half, but I did a lot of stop and go and it didn't grind at all. Plus, the down shifting had been getting pretty jerky, but that's over. It is definitely shifting nicer than it was before I reset it! Thank you very much!!!!!

                I just did my second initialization and it went over real easy. Heard the transmission doing a lot of stuff and then quiet. Got 5000 on the DCT but now it is real foggy with 39*. So may be a couple of days before I can test ride again.

                  You will think the pixie dust was ingested by your GW1833 DCT-but really give the credit to maw Honda engineering staff for the smooth shifting after you test ride!

                    I have dct, motor and tranny use same oil. Therefore very important to keep proper oil level. I make sure and follow instructions to check oil, also to top level mark,!! My preference!

                        In quarantine, naturally.

                        Yours just happens to be influenced by weather in those northern latitudes, rather than our current pandemic state of affairs.
