Taming the 2018 Wild Wing

For those of you who have been somewhat bemused by the shift performance of your DCT transmission (primarily jerky downshifting, odd shift points, abrupt deceleration when closing throttle to disengage cruise control, etc) there is a very owner friendly fast procedure to get your bike's attention:


I just performed this procedure and it took under 3 minutes; no tools or mechanical aptitude required (Whew! :oops: )

The test ride afterwards was incredible. Smooth acceleration, deceleration, better speed match for shift points. The whole Magilla.

If the procedure has never been performed on your DCT bike, I would encourage you to give it a try. If you do it on a center stand you can use the parking brake to stop rear wheel rotation.
