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.

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.

2009 Hyundai accent in 5th gear the RPM is 4000 is this normal? My speed is 115 Klm an hour

No, it is not. You should be around 2500 rpm at 115 Kilometers an hour. Even if you were in 4th it should only be around 3000 rpm. At 115 MPH you would be near the 4000 RPM. Your either running on 3 cylinders or your transmission is in trouble and needs repair.

I have a 2006 Kingpin with stage one. Victory down loads newinfo to onboard engine control modual, for remapping. I am not a big fan.

Like the saying goes If you wonder why dogs ride with there heads out the window and there tounges hanging out. Ride a stage one Victory. Good luck

I just wanted to know the optimal shifting points to do 70mph comfortably. Should the car be at 2500-3000 rpm in 5th gear at 60-65 mph? I typically shift at or around 3k rpm in every gear, and the car...

How many gears does your car have? One of my cars has to do a little over 3000rpm to maintain 70-75 in 5th gear. My other car has to do about 3000rpm to maintain 65-70 in 5th gear.

It all depends on the number of gears your car has and the gearing ratio. The second car I have is geared more optimally for city driving and gets better fuel economy going slower than fast highway speeds.

Having driven several rental cars too I would say anywhere between 2500 to 3000 is reasonable for the average car. If you are driving a vehicle like say a porsche, bmw or audi they may have more gears and may be at a lower rpm at 70mph than your car.

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.
