Mine does the exact same thing and was hoping this is normal?
Nice story. IF this happened as you say, maybe you should have checked your tire pressure or perhaps left the pressure as it came from factory.seems like we purchased some garbage i just had both tires pop of the rim and flip me over bending my roll bar among other things bad purchase lucky my daughter didnt get hurt to bad
Literally drove it home took it off the trailer n took it out in the field for a test ride. Dealer said they prepped the machine so i never checked or did anything with the tire pressure you would assume just picking it up it would be at the right pressure?Nice story. IF this happened as you say, maybe you should have checked your tire pressure or perhaps left the pressure as it came from factory.
Thanks for the info. I've had my 2007 Honda Rincon bought new and it's always ran smoothly without any clicking or clunking noises during shifting whatsoever. Doesn't the Rincon use a similar transmission?The common misconception with a DCT is that the RPM change that feels like an automatic shifting is not the entire "shift" sequence but rather only the last part of it at the point when the transmission changes from one clutch to the other. The "Click" (I actually describe it as a "Clunk") you are all hearing is actually the transmission shifting the next or previous gear just prior to disengaging the engaged clutch and engaging the disengaged clutch. That click/clunk is the actual gear shifting. It is how a DCT works, the shift occurs something like this...
The click/clunk is totally normal and part of most all DCT's. It seems a bit louder in the Talon than a car but that is probably due to the smaller gearbox and lack of insulation so you hear just about everything going on back there.
- Gear section 1,3,5 in 1st gear.
- Clutch 1 engaged, clutch 2 disengaged.
- Shift requested (either by computer or paddles).
- Gear section 2,4,6 shifts into 2nd (this is the click/clunk that you hear like large bike when you shift it while pulling the clutch).
- Clutch 1 disengages and (almost simultaneously) clutch 2 engages (this is when the RPM changes and you feel the finishing step of a shift).
