DQS: The sweet spot

Hot damn, the more I fall in love with my bike the more I fall in love with it.

The DQS at right-on, or just under, 5k with a moderate throttle is just butter.
It works everywhere, but that's where it makes every other gearbox feel like.. well..
shit.



That is all...
..as you were.

I know what you mean, but It CAN be done.
It's taken me almost 3000klm for the 1-2 shift to be as smooth as the others..

I don't think it's the 'box bedding in, I honestly think it's just developing a "feel" for throttle position / RPM.

If I'm just running along from light to light with traffic, I won't use the DQS for the 1-2 shift. Throttle percentage is too low, but if you're first at the lights and manage to get away briskly (not crazy fast) it can be done..

Get that adjusted - maybe the shifter position isn't quite right for you, meaning under strain your not being positive enough?

Whats the right RPM from 1st to 2nd? I have tried 3-4-5K rpm and the change just feels rough. All the other gears are just like you said smooth close to 5K. Still in the breaking in period so not sure if it goes away after.

Shifting in general just got better after my first service and a refill with fresh fully-synth 10W50.

I have the same problem changing up into 6th but sometimes it also slips out of 5th. Garage mentioned tweaking the shifter position to make a more positive shift - I haven't done it yet but will have a go before the winter comes.
