Question about 2006 Victory Vegas Jackpot

2 Answers

Transmission lock up

I have a 2006 Vegas Jackpot with about 2500 well maintained miles on it. The transmission locked up when I was shifting into 2nd gear causing the rear wheel to lock up resulting in a spill. I was told by an authorized Victory Service Tech that some thing had broken off inside the Tranny causing extensive damage ( $4,268.00 and change ) Has anyone else had this problem? The Bike is out of warenty but I feel Polaris should step up on the repair cost. Any suggestions? Or Comments? I'm a 68 year old rider and even after it's repaired I will not feel safe riding it.

Hi there,

Apart being a repair engineer, in real life I am also a classsic car and bikes DIYer and I do not have direct experience on a bike like yours, but I can tell you that when a gear is locked there are usually less radical solutions than replacing the whole transmission box. Nevertheless the Victory built before 2002 had a transmission problem from factory, but that caused transmission being slippery rather than locking up. Model from 2003 onward are not affected.Read Transmission woes



To start ensure that this is not the cluch locking up .

I report a solution written for a much different bike, but things should work the same way on your model :

"Youare unable to shift gears---in fact, unable to shift the transmissioninto neutral. Since the bike is not in neutral it must be locked intoone of the gears?---Try this; while maintaining upward pressure on theshift lever with your hand----bump the bike forward and back. Bump itpretty hard so that the rear tire slides or the shift lever suddenlycomes unlocked and the bike shifts into the next higher gear. Do nothold the clutch lever in while you are bumping it. Then reportback---one of two things should have happened----1. the bike shiftedgears----or----it didn't.
Before you report the result----do this;pull in the clutch lever and bump the bike forward or back again----Didthe clutch release and allow the bike to roll freely---or not? Ifnot----USE EXTREME CAUTION when you get that key----don't try to startthe bikewithout preparation for what may happen next. If thetransmission happens to be locked in gear and your clutch won'tuncouple the engine the bike is going to lurch away from you when itstarts---and will be running down the road. You will want to beprepared for this eventuality and be headed down a clear road withoutobstruction. In other words be prepared for this to happen and if itdoes --and the transmission doesn't come free----then you will have touse the kill switch or key switch to kill the engine.
" from Transmission/Clutch problem .


Bear in mind that your bike is heavier then the one in the example, be careful not to lose control of the bike or you can damage it.
A better alternative can be taking the bike to a mechanic to check and eventually unlock the clutch.

If the clutch is fine, before replacing the transmission box check also the following:

Stuck in park will not shift


Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is ON. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.


?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.


?€¢
The park/neutral position switch.

With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the park/neutral position switch. When the transmission is in the PARK position the contacts in the park/neutral position switch are closed. This allows current to flow through the switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Park Lock Solenoid
The park lock solenoid is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the key is in the OFF position. The key must be in the RUN position to release the park lock solenoid. The system consists of the park lock solenoid. With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to the park lock solenoid. The park lock solenoid energizes through a permanent ground unlocking the shift lever. With the ignition in the OFF or ACCY position the park lock solenoid de-energizes and locks the shift lever in the park position.
Shift Lever Does Not Move with Brake Pedal Depressed
DEFINITION: Transmission shift lever will not move out of the PARK position with the ignition ON and the brake pedal pressed.

Tip

Throttle Valve Cable Ajustment on a 2nd Gen Dodge Ram


<b> <p>Before you begin:<br /></b> <p>This tip is to show second generation Dodge Ram truck owners with the automatic transmission how to properly adjust the shift points of their transmission. These pictures are from my 1999 Ram 1500<br /> <p>with the 5.9 liter V-8 engine. When I bought my truck, I quickly decided I didn't like the factory set shift points. It shifted too soon under light and medium throttle...and passing gear/kickdown required a lot of gas pedal to achieve. My desire was to have the 1-2 shift and the 2-3 shift occur at a higher road speed/<br /> <p>engine rpm and to have a more sensitive kickdown. In my case, this was accomplished by adjusting the transmission throttle pressure cable only 1/4" (0.25 inches). What is the throttle pressure cable? Between the throttle linkage and the driver's side of the transmission there is a cable that causes a valve inside the transmission to move in relation to throttle position (gas pedal position). This cable is also referred to as the Throttle Valve (T.V.) cable.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>What does it do? The T.V. cable moves the throttle valve in the transmission.....which in turn controls THREE things: <br /> <p> <br /> <p>1) the transmission line pressure and <br /> <p>2) the transmission shift timing and<br /> <p>3) the transmission kickdown (or passing gear). Many people mistakenly believe it only performs function number three.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>Very important:<br /></b> <p> <br /> <p>l More throttle opening = HIGHER line pressure and LATER, FIRMER shifts.<br /> <p>l Less throttle opening = LOWER line pressure and EARLIER, SOFTER shifts.<br /> <p>l WOT (Wide Open Throttle) = MAXIMUM line pressure and FIRM shifts at the engine <b>redline</b>.<br /> <p> <br /> <br /> Even though this walkthrough is for 2nd gen Ram's, most cars and trucks with automatic transmissions will have similar T.V.C. setup and adjustment.<br /> <br /> <br /> This picture shows the location of the throttle pressure cable adjustment<br /> <p> <br /> <img src="kacomstock.png" /> <br /> <br /> Here's a close up of the bracket and adjustment mechanism<br /> <br /> <img src="kacomstock.jpg" /> <br /> <p>Here's what the locking clip actually looks like:<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>When removing this clip, be aware that it is plastic and be careful that you don't break the tabs off when prying on them.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /></b> <br /> <img src="kacomstock_0.png" /> <br /> <br /> Here is a close up of the T.V. cable and locking teeth.<br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="kacomstock_1.png" /> <br /> <br /> <p>For LATER, FIRMER shifts, slide the cable housing further OUT of (rearward) the locking mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too late and firm will result in undesirably harsh shifts under light throttle.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>For EARLIER, SOFTER shifts, slide the cable housing further INTO (forward) the locking mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too early will result in excessive transmission slippage during shifts, especially at medium and heavy throttle.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>WARNING: Going too far in either direction will cause trouble!!<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> </b><img src="kacomstock_2.png" /> <br /> <p>BEFORE you begin, make note of the cable position so you have that as the stock reference point.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>Make your adjustments in small increments of about 1/8" (0.125")<br /></b> <p> <br /> <p>At a fixed throttle position...say 1/4 throttle....every 1/8" of cable adjustment will change the shift points by a few miles per hour. At a greater throttle opening...say 3/4 throttle... that same 1/8" of cable adjustment will make more of a difference.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>When you're finished adjusting, replace the locking clip and road test it. Pay close attention to the light and medium throttle shift firmness and timing.<br />

My 2006 2500 dodge ram is having shift problems in 2nd gear only. The truck has a Cummins and an auto tranny. It holds in first too long, then when it shifts to 2nd, sometimes it goes back to first then...


I had the same problem, after 26k miles and replacing the computer, and many other parts on the truck transmission they replaced the tranny....same problem. In short, and another tranny they found small alum shavings in the tranny cooling system...they then replaced all lines, coolent and tranny radiator (cooler )with another new tranny....problem solved. It was the tiny metal shavings in the tranny cooling system that continued to circulate the system.

Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

Check engine light on, auto transmission shifts gears abruptly


It should still be under warrenty Take it to the shop for repairs It is a transmisson problem but many things can cause the transmisson not to shift correctly. Call your service department and ask if you should drive it in or have it towed and do not drive till you have it figured out. If you have a warrenty and continue to drive it will void your warrenty.

Transmission- 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel 4X4


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram that doesn't like to shift into 2nd when flooring it from a Stop. Imagine if you were to floor the gas in neutral, the engine REDLINEs and the engine governor kicks in to keep the RPM from blowing the engine......while stuck in first Gear. If i let off the gas, it goes into 2nd fine. I have replaced the Speed Sensor on the transmission ($18) and it seemed to fix it for one day. After 200 miles, its doing it again. ANybody have legitimate answers in here? Its only got 60K miles..wtf?
