DQS noise?
« on: September 28, 2019, 05:24:41 PM »
Since the bike (S model) had it's first service, I have noticed that the DQS makes a fairly loud clanging sound especially when downshifting from 3rd to 2nd and perhaps a lower revs too. It didn't do this before the first service. The noise is similar to riding over a loose manhole cover. Very strange.

It's not necessarily a big concern. I can just use the clutch at lower revs I suppose.

Anyone else got this?

Don't use DQS on my 950 much, never seems to work that good for me, maybe not reving high enough or just don't feel it offers that much..
A bit of mechanical noise always there but not excessive ....

It works fine for me, even when it's clanking. It actually feels better than the quickshifter I had on my GS. It's just that noise is a bit odd. Hopefully just that and not the sign of a problem. Cheers
