What a day

Recommended Posts

SteveM

Well after a brilliant day yesterday and a long ride I found my Nc700 x DCT stuck in gear. The first time this happened I phoned my good friend Mark who told me to discount the battery for 6-7 mins then reconnect and then rock it back and forward while hitting the down shift to neutral. Happy day so I set off. Few miles later happened again. Did the same thing. 5 miles later same thing. Getting a little peeved now. Went along after the 3rd time, this time stayed in 4th gear and kept going, even when I stopped at the lights, kept going, set off in 4th and managed to get it home. It has stuck in 3rd,4th, 5th and 6th gear not 1st or 2nd. The battery should have been fully charged as I came from Skegness Saturday night and went all the way to RAF Cosford before this happened.

 

So my question is WTF. I have never had this done before after 2 years of ownership, seen it has happened before but I cant find a solution. Need this sorting soon as I'm going to Belgium in July and don't fancy calling the AA to get me home. Is it a lost cause?

 

My bike is a NC700 X DCT 60k on the clock. 13 plate (and Black lol)

 

P.S. here are my pics from the great day up to 1pm.

I'm sure an expert will help you soon, but could it be the gear shifter pin?

From the sounds of the issue it is the Shifter Pin.  Mine was sorted in 2 hours of work and £40 of oil.  Bike is back to smooth riding and higher MPG's again.  

 

Have a look at the thread I posted.

It should be relatively straightforward on an X, it's a right royal PITA on an Integra with taking the plastics off. It has all the hallmarks of the pin, right symptoms, right age.

Yes please Lyn. So what do you need me to bring, is it just the pin you want me to bring? Do you have the sealant? Could do with a full service too along with the DCT filters.

And while you’re at it could you just pop on a pair of tyres and a chain and sprocket set? :D

I think you need a gasket as well Steve, just thought i could get the heavy stuff for you.

When did you last change the plugs? Best ask Embee what is needed.

Steve has messaged me and we have exchanged some info.

The clutch cover is sealant (I suggested Loctite 5980, which I found was easiest to get at Hafrauds), the gear shifter gear case on the left side, which you have to remove, is a paper gasket which is stupidly expensive for what it is. Mine was stuck firmly and was destroyed getting it off. I made one from gasket material which I had in stock but that is pretty time consuming. The gear case only has grease in it so no real sealing difficulties, but there is an oil hole at the top which has to be sealed properly so you do need to do it "properly".

When taking the clutch cover off there is a short tube which transfers engine oil under pressure to the clutch solenoids, it has 2 O-rings and fits between crankcase and cover. take care this doesn't drop out.

You need to take the load off the split gear on the crank by carefully levering the 2 parts and inserting a pin (6mm?) through the hole to hold them aligned, easier to see what to do than try to describe it.

Also take care when removing the clutch cover, the clutch support bearing dropped out when I did it, it was a slip fit on the clutch stub and a slip fit in the cover .............. and it slipped off. Make sure you have something clean underneath to catch it if it does drop.

Otherwise not a complicated job.
