DQS not smooth - upshifts?

Hey guys, I'm noticing more and more that my DQS upshifts are not so smooth. especially 1st to 2nd and sometimes 2nd to 3rd. Depending on the throttle it'll be quick and smooth but most of the time the engine cut out has some lag before it shifts which causes the bike the jerk. also sometimes when im pinning it in 2nd shifting to 3rd the QS doesnt want to activate, ill go to shift and its like hitting a wall. I don't feel my QS has the issue as my bike doesn't buck or chug.

some info:
- Just did first service on the 22nd, sheet showed no updates when plugged in to their computer
- Speciale, rizoma rear sets: GP shift, I've tried regular shift and its the same
- Down shifts are always flawless.

if there are any adjustments you've done let me know! Someone mentioned they did the tire calibration and it helped? maybe ill give that a shot.

appreciate it guys!

Mine Speciale is similar when riding at slower speeds in street mode. I have not ran it hard or tested other modes.

Also did you have any issues swapping over to GP? I tried on mine and started to strip out the allen. Did you heat it up or did they just add extra lock-tight to mine.

QS works best when you have the bike flat out that's what it's designed for .
If your using it at lower revs its not awesome .

I have noticed that QS works best for me when the revs are higher. Low revs it can be very clunky. No strange problems so far though.

I didnít have any issues removing that Allen bolt. I didnít use heat or anything special, literally an Allen tool. They must of caked on that lock-tight on yours!

Interesting, i do find at higher revs itís a little better for sure, Iíll test it in different riding modes. Iím so used to my MV Agustas QS, that works flawlessly in low rpm, low speed, high speed. Feels the same throughout.

Agreed 100%, I use the clutch if I am just cruising at normal traffic pace.

Tried it in race mode today and more throttle, still a bit jerky, someone said the bike is sensitive to chain slack. so going to measure and adjust again. it might be on the looser side again. When I blip the throttle on down shifts (not DQS) I can hear it slap like before when it stretched a bit. Hope this is the case!
