Question about 2001 Victory V92 Cruiser

1 Answer

Missing 2500 RPM

I have a stock Victory V92CD 2001, when riding around 2500 rpm it acts like it wants to fall on its face, this is at any gear. I can't notice it when I'm throttling through the 2500 range, Just when holding the rpm around 2500 rpm. I'm thinking Something with the TPS but I have no clue how to test for it. I have a shop manuel .

    The only change from stock is a K&N air filter, but is was doing this before I changed the filter. thanks for reply.

    victory motorcycles have never been " carbed ", they started in 1998 and are throttle-body injected.I run a ' 99 v92c. You have to take the tank off to remove the air filter or see into the throttle body, and those tank set-ups ain't something you wanna' just pull and put back on too many times.they're a major pain!! so it's all but imposable to spray any cleaner in the intake while it's running. i've been told by a vic' mechanic that the problem is most likely a dirty throttle body.

    i have the same problem. but have already pulled the air box cleaned the butterflys. Replaced the tps. kinda has erattic idle then smooth idle, mid range bucks kicks sputters, wide open runs fine. put new spark plugs in when cleaned the throttle body nothing seems to improve or make any differance. mine is a 2000 v92c.

    bike wont exceed 4 thousand RPM falls on its face after that, at full throttle only bouncing RPM at around 3 thousand. bought new fuel pump but need to know OEM pump pressure so i can order the correct one and not have this issue again.

In the shop manual they should give the specs on the volts that the TPS operates at.  You will need a volt/ohm meter to test it. when was the last time you changed the fuel filter?   Have you done any mods to the intake or exhaust on the bike?

    Have you ever cleaned your carb with Gum Out or other product?  If not I would suggest doing that.  I prefer Deep Creep found at most auto parts stores, then following up with Sea Foam in the tank.  I suggest this because it is a very cheap fix if your carb is dirty, which could be your problem here.  The next step would be in the jetting, but you didn't make that big of a change in the air flow to the carb to really warrant re-jetting.

I have a 2001 flhtcui what are the ac reading coming from stator at 2.5k rpm 3k rpm and 3600 rpm. At 2000 rpm I get about 12 volts dash guage reading but at 3000 I get 13.5 to 14 at lower rpm 2000 or so I...

The AC output of the stator should be 32-40 volts at 2000 RPM (16-20 per 1000 RPM). With the battery fully charged, your regulator should supply between 13.5 and 15.0 DC volts to the battery. This should be the reading you get on your voltmeter. It will vary depending on what lights and other equipment you have turned on. Sounds like everything is working fine to me. The gauge is reading the DC voltage at the battery while the engine is running. At 2000 RPM, 12 volts is a little low but, considering the accuracy of the gauge, as long as it doesn't fall below 12 volts, it's about right. You don't ride for extended periods at engine RPMs that low. Then at 3000 RPM, 14 volts is about right. If your bike never ran anymore than 12 volts, your battery would slowly go down. If it goes any higher than 15.0 volts, it will boil the battery. Usually, about 14.3 or so with no load on the system is about right.

Good Luck

97 srad no power under 4000 rpm in, in first gear acceleration

If you have installed the Dynojet kit's carburetor needles take them off and use the stock ones.
Dynojet's needles are for track use only and the don't work properly under 4000rpm.

Speedometer stopped working on 2001 Victory Motorcycle

Check if it uses cable or if it electronic.
If it uses cable the lower end is attached on the front wheel axle.Maybe you have to buy a new cable.
If it is electronic usually it senses the pulse from the gearbox (the sensor is towards the swingarm).

Engine cuts out at 8000 rpm in any all gears

check your tank breather hose for any blocks or kinks - also have a look at the fuel filter and airbox.

998 cutting out at 9000rpm

so I don't think it should be the rev limiter at 9k. It's not bouncing like a rev limiter it just stops firing the cylinders and the comes back again when the throttle is released. It has the stock 996r ECU. Since I got it I've fitted a smaller battery to make room for frame sliders. Could this cause the bike to cut out earlier? It cuts out then runs fine again. The other things I can think of is fuel delivery. But I'm not sure the symptom is correct for that? Any thoughts would be appreciated. In any case I'll put the stock battery back on to see if that helps, but I wont know the answer until next Friday when I'm going to the track,I recently had a problem with one of my Guzzis acting like that at 6k RPM. Always at 6k RPM, but only under load. Ended up being a restricted air intake. Really strange, because it acted just like a rev-limiter. So, does it only act this way under load, or also if you just rev the bike in neutral? If it's a limiter problem or tach error, it should still have the problem even with no load. If the problem is only under load, then it's either a fuel or air problem.,,,
