The last 2000 km I notice sometimes after manual down shifting and releasing the clutch handle, the engine reacts extremly. As if I give full throttle for half a second.
This is something which I do not expect when slowing down for a corner.
I have turned off the QS and now it does not happen anymore.
The bike is up for maintnance shortly. After that I will try again.

I turned the quick Shift off and find the shifting nice and smooth now. Been riding it that way for a couple of weeks now. I think I will turn it back on and see how it does, just to check the comparisons of the two. Off vs. On.

I looked at my chain today and visually it looks ok but I'll adjust and align it accurately tomorrow

If there is no change or improvement then I'll turn the  QS off  and use it selectively

Well, I appreciate your view/opinion, thank you.... I'll still check the chain tension though,

If I was as p*ssed off with it as  you obviously are I too might consider changing the bike, but not until I had exhausted other possibilities, including turning the QS off  :169:

I do turn it off 90% of the time. But when I go for a spirited rides with my buddies I tend to activate sport mode and QS - on.

I paid extra 4,000$ for this feature. I want to be able to use it.

  I thought it was just me! it gets worse after a long ride so i thought it may be that i was tired and sloppy shifting, it is definitely the bike.

  I have not been able to take bike in for 600miles service as i have to self isolate, so i decided to buy oil and filter to change it myself.

  I checked the chain tension, and it was a bit slack so i adjusted it, took the bike out for a ride and the shift was smooth as silk, only did about 100 miles never had any problem. Just check your chain tension and if its slack adjust it and see if its related.

 Interested to see if it makes a difference.
I have noticed that fresh oil helps with this problem. Instead of getting in to false neutral every third up shift from 2nd to 3rd, it will only happen 3 or 4 times during the entire ride... But I cannot change oil every week... I tend to change it every 6,000 km (instead of 12,000km as recommended)

I tried LiquiMolly and returned to Motul 7100 10/40. The best so far.

I agree, it should not be faulty  :023:

OK, I checked my chain and it was slightly slack (45mm,) so I adjusted it to 35mm and re-aligned it, with my laser alignment - which interestingly confirmed that the factory marks on the swing arm were very accurate  :169: 

I will be out on the bike again soon so will see if there's any difference with the QS operation

TYKE, be careful. Versys chain slack should be checked with side stand. Also, when you sit on the bike it stretches the chain a bit more.

Thanks, I did check it with the side stand down, as per owners manual handbook    :169:

Looks like we are out again on Friday for a run down to Derry, so will have chance to check it out then  :028:
