THANKS VERY MUCH and i appreciate ALL your post. CAN'T WAIT to get the SERVICE MANUAL for the 2018 Gold Wing DCT from you.
BLUE 88, ( long time customer )
I cannot believe what a difference this made in how my 2018 DCT Tour performs!! The transmission downshifting was always uncomfortable because it was 'jerky'. Since performing this clutch initialization the downshifts are smooth as butter!!
Idont know if this might have been an oversight at my dealer during the initial set-up, but this is such a phenomenal improvement!
What do I do when the process never goes back to tour mode. Ran the bike for 15 minutes,and never quite flashing? Please help.
You can drive for about 10 minutes and do your work quickly.
The key is to perform operations quickly after driving.
Rick, can this procedure be run at anytime and again let's say in 10,000 miles if problem came back. I presently have 1200 miles and seems like it now downshifts very hard and likes to shift quickly from 2 to 4 th gear. ( 2018 G/W DCT).

Out for a ride to warm up engine oil, view video on phone, compete clutch initialization, ride home. Simple. Thanks Fred.
