Question about 2006 Victory Vegas 8-Ball
Two days ago, I was riding down the road and the bike sputtered and shut off. I noticed the oil light was on when it shut off but that may be because the engine shut off. After getting the bike home, I checked the spark plugs and I have recently done an oil change. With the key set to the "on" position, when I turn the killswitch on, the fuel does not prime like it did before and the engine light flashes. I'd like to take it to a dealer but I'd like to learn how to work on my bike (also the closest dealer is about 90 miles away and towing would also be expensive). Any thoughts? Any help is much appreciated.
Check the fuses, especially the fuel pump fuse. Then, check to see if voltage is getting to the fuel pump wires. (1 wire should get battery voltage) If fuse and voltage to pump is good, replace fuel pump.
Fuel pump replacement requires a special tool.

SOURCE: Engine filling up with gas
there is no way for fuel to get passed the rings right? So if you filled the head with fuel, it would just work its way down the exhaust pipe and out the back, just like its doing. The only way of getting fuel into the sump is; if you have seriously bad rings (it would be burning oil) OR if its getting through the breather system. I don't even think if the injectors were on full-time, it still wouldn't get into the sump... very strange. Are you sure its not coolant? A serious coolant leak can be completely unnoticeable from the outside, but catastrophic to the inside. __________________

The first thing to do is get a can of spray starting fluid and shoot some into the air intake of the engine, it may be your fuel has deteriorated and this makes it harder to ignite, the starting fluid may get the engine going and that may cure the problem, then you can drain out the old fuel. The fuel system doesn't have a stand alone filter it has a strainer made of fine mesh nylon that is part of the fuel tank valve.

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. What you need is an independant fuel proccesor, so you can fine tune all the pots. This will really put a smile on your face. 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
