DN01 will not go when in drive

Honda DN01 - I've had an issue where it was flicking from D to N (and back again) by itself and every time I went to take off, it was like I had dropped the clutch - which we all know there isn't one to drop. Anyway, got home, put it in N and then there was no way it was going back into D (or S or gear). I gave up and starting organising towing to the service shop but when I came out in the morning, it started with no issues; like as if it was happy now it had cooled down. I could not reproduce the flicking from D to N, the service shop could not locate anything.
5 days later, riding home, it was like something had seized and the bike came to a holt. I can change it from D to N and back again (or S or gear) - in N the bike will freely push but when it is in any drive gear, it is like the brakes are jammed on and will not move forward. It has now been in the service shop for 2 days and they have no idea what is wrong with it.
Love my bike, it has over 58,000km.
Please - anybody got any ideas or help for this?????

Hi

I doubt very much that they have found copper in the oil.


There may be traces of phosphorous bronze in the oil, which would indicate a bush/bearing has worn excessively and with what you are describing I would think that a full gearbox strip is in order.

Not having taken one apart I am not able to make any suggestions as to what will be found.
Keep us informed as to what is found and the cure, don't get any tears on your keyboard when you get the bill.

That technology is pretty complex, so it needs an expert's eye on it. I hope it turns out to be a warranty claim or you could be wincing at the bill....
