Starting this thread to address the shift problems in my brand new 2021 Rubicon 520 brought into the dealership last week looking to hear from them in the next few

Gonna post updates as they come as i've heard I'm not the only one with these issues.

Cheers

Keep us posted on what you find out. I'm guessing that your machine is a DCT since you are having problems? Can you share any symptoms that you are experiencing with your machine not shifting properly? Thanks.

I’m curious as to what shifting problems you are having. I also have a 2021 Rubicon Deluxe but as of now I don’t have any shifting problems.

That's correct, mostly used in automatic depending on the terrain. All of a sudden while riding for long periods of time my screen would display '-' flashing 5 long and two short dashes. Upon trying to either downshift or switch to manual transmission nothing would happen, the code would constantly flash and if the bike was turned off it would not start again given that it thought it was out of gear. Would have to let the bike sit for about half an hour before the N would pop back up (I've tried disconnecting the battery and it doesn't reset the system in this case) A few times on acceleration it would bog down quite a bit after just being started. This machine has left me stranded for a total of about 3 hours in the span of 8 months just waiting for it to kick back into neutral. I've tested the bank angle sensor and it seems to be in place, don't think it could be the TPS either but who knows.

Shouldn't be long till I get the full diagnostic.

The bike displays a code 52 , 5 long and 2 short dashes '-'... doesn't know which gear it is in while driving sometimes and displays the code.. when the bike is turned off while displaying the code it cannot be turned back on for about 20 30 minutes before it displays N again... a real pain in the ass since there is no foot shifter. The dealer I brought it to up North said they will put a foot shifter on, highly.recommend as all my troubles would have been avoided had I had one (given that there isn't a bigger issue, updates to come)
