Unhappy DQS Downshifting 3rd - 2nd -> Loss of gear

Hey gentlemen,

I searched the forum and I could only find DQS topics within the Panigale forum.

I have a 2018 Supersport S and I have continuosly problems with the DQS while downshifting from 3rd to 2nd.

On a fresh ignition cycle everythink seems to work fine, but after a while of driving (~100km) it starts to get into some problems while downshifting.

When shifting down from 3rd to 2nd (only experineced from 3rd to 2nd, all other shift work properly) with DQS it feels like the 2nd gear is engaged (engine brake deceleration feelable) and after app. 1-3 s suddenly the gear gets lost and I end up without any gear engaged. Re-engaging the gear then with an upshift (using clutch) result in a heavy clunk and engaging 2nd gear.

If that happens during a corner the bike massively looses stability and I nearly had an accident twice.

If the problem occurs once, you can reproduce it very often and it also happens when you push the lever very hard (so it was cleary a full shift).

Does anyone else have similar experience on the Supersport S DQS?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi Annodomini,
I was wondering if you you ever resolved the downshifting problem on your bike? I'm having the same exact problem with my 2017 Monster 1200s. Only from 3rd to 2nd using DQS. Bike starts to engine brake then pops out of gear.
Thank you!

Hi,

not yet. I just informed my dealer of the problem, as soon as I find time I will bring my bike and check DTC's.

In any case as soon as I have more information I will update this post
