Question about 2001 Victory V92 Cruiser
Was wondering if anybody else had this problem: Coming back from York Bike Night in Pa in the rain, about midnight. I was riding with a less experienced person and they were dropping back, so I pulling to the shoulder and put on my 4 ways when the bike went black. No power everything was dead, first instinct was to pop the clutch to resart but it was DEAD. Wound up pushing it 100 yards to the exit ramp and then to an overhang with a light. Did I mention that it was pouring rain and midnight. Found the ignition fuse was blown and replaced it with the back up. Pulled out went about 100 yards and it blew again. Wound up driving the Yamaha home and put her on the back of her bike. Got a lot of grief that her 82 Yamaha Virago was running and my KP was in a gas station parking lot dead. Angry We found some more fuses at home, went back put one in and it has not happened again. Talked to the dealer and they are going to give a look over when I put it in this winter for the 30K front fork oil change. Just wondering if anybody else had this issue.
I would tend to believe it was more of a situation where water got into some of the electrical connections and caused a short , which caused an over current, thereby blowing the fuse. The thing to do is, try to figure out where the water is getting into the electrical system and then try to seal it. I've ridden in a lot of rain and never had this happen. Look for an electrical fitting that appears to have gotten wet inside or maybe a place where wire insulation is damaged. Maybe water got on a wire with damaged insulation and shorted it to metal. Or maybe water even go into the fuse box, or any other electrical housing (such as the head lamp assembly). But either way, the water definitely caused a short somewhere.
