Question about 2001 Victory V92 Cruiser

1 Answer

Bike died in the rain

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.

Honda sabre


I have an 04 Honda Sabre 1100 that does the same thing. If the rain is steady, it will actually die. After you come to a stop, it will start right away and run ok for a little while until you get up to speed in the rain and will die again. Very frustrating. Can't see any shorting when viewing in dark conditions. Bike shop also couldn't figure anything out. Any ideas?
If I figure anything out, I'll repost what worked for me.

Hi, Saisoku this happens to a lot of bikes and different brands it is usually caused by water getting into the fuel system and/or moisture getting to electronic components, wire connectors, wiring harness. This situation usually clears itself by letting the bike sit for a couple of days in the sun. For more information about your question please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Hi, Anonymous moisture, condensation, rain, or bike washing can make the bike run sluggish, not able to rev, and misfire. Older bikes, engine configuration, and exposed electrical components are at the front of the line for acting up. During the diagnostic procedure spray Electrical Contact Cleaner on corroded wire connectors/pins/sockets etc. and apply a liberal amount of "DIELECTRIC" grease to the mating harness/wire connectors. WD40 works great for eliminating suspect areas in your quest to find the real offending gremlin.
For additional insurance you can spray a High Temp Clear Coat on the most vulnerable areas it will work like Scotch Guard does on fabric. Fabricate a rubber or plastic splash guard to deflect water coming off the front wheel getting to the front cylinder spark plugs. The design should be adequate for its purpose with the least amount of airflow restriction to cool the cylinders. The usual suspects are:
1. Air filter soaked with water.
2. Water in the fuel system gas tank and carburetors.
3. Wet ignition coil packs.
4. Spark plug boots wore out or loose allowing water to enter.
5. Spark plug cables old and cracked check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Spark plug wells filled up and drain holes clogged.
7. Water in a wire harness that has exposed open ends and have a sharp bend or crimp allowing the liquid to form its own pool of potential threats to chaffed wiring.
8. Sensitive fuel tuners and downloaded ECM remaps may get confused with the abnormal cylinder temperature difference in a V-4 engine configuration.
If your bike will not run right or even start after going through the checklist, despair not, letting it sit for a couple of days in a warm environment is like an eviction notice for the Gremlins and then your bike will be back to its old self.

Died While drivng


Check for spark first. If spark is there, chances are the carb has filled with water that has accumulated from condensation in the gas tank. Drain the carb, stick in a fresh spark plug and then give it a try. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
