Are you sure you have the "Gear Sport" mode activated?

You can 'Change Down' in all modes to increase engine braking but you need to be in 'Sport Gear' to change up.

Actually, the paddles can be "turned off" in the controller through the display. Ask your dealer to check it out or search for the service manual link here and follow the instructions.

In case your not sure as its new to you, to change into sport gear mode you press and hold the gear button on the right handle bar for about 2 seconds and then the display should change. Just short presses of the button changes between, Stouring, Sport and Rain, its the long press that puts it into Sport Gear where you can use either the pedal or handle bar shifters.
