My understanding of the stalls was simply that the clutch would cut too early with the revs being still low. If it was a manual clutch, I would simply rev it up more before releasing the clutch (you kinda know where your machine needs it). But with DCT you don't have that choice, it's all in the hands of DCT when to engage the clutch. So, I don't think the software update has anything to do with the manual transmission, it should only impact DCT. I am a newbie in this forum, and I am not sure what "engine smootheness" means. It reminds me on how the engine itself works, and I don't think they are messing with the electronic fuel injection ratios in the software update. They are probably just idling more and engaging the clutch later to make sure there is no stall.
I don’t have the universal definition of engine smoothness. I was simply responding to post #75. Maybe you’re right; the reflash is a correction for DCT clutch engagement protocol.

I would interpret engine smoothness as lack of vibration, or reacting to throttle inputs without being jerky, or accelerating linearly without any "cammy" rush, or idling steadily without any rpm fluctuation, or, well, you get the idea.
Each person's definition of smoothness could mean many different things.
I can't comment on the '21 DCT reflash and how it's "smoother", as I have a '20.

My bike stalled twice the first few months I got it, I thought it was my riding that caused it. When I got the recall notice I thought wow that could have been dangerous if I stalled. I went to three different Honda dealers near Toronto. I finally got it fixed and WOW does my bike feel smoother off the start and while the engine breaking. I'm realy glad I got the recall and had it fixed.
