Unhappy Transmission Trouble

Ok , last week I pulled into my driveway and put my bike in neutral and as I put down my stand and shed my helmet I heard a strange clackety sound from the transmission ... I didn't think much of it and left it at that .

Fast forward to today and over 1000 miles of no clackety sounds this past week , when I arrived home after my 58 mile ride home from work today , clackety / clack only much worse then last week .

It sounds like the tranny is half way between neutral and wanting to shift to the next gear .... Its the only way to describe it . Its like a gear rotating and a piece of metal bouncing off it as it spins . It sounds like a serious issue to me ...

I checked the oil and its full , with 2000 miles on it . If anyone can help me or has had this same issue please chime in , its obviously intermittent and I fear a trip to the dealer will reveal a N.P.F.

This is too weird...and I'm not joking. I started hearing some type of infrequent "clank" pretty much exactly as you described it on my ride today.

I don't know whether to keep riding it until it blows up or what .... It doesn't sound good . It sounds like while idling in neutral it wants to drop into first and blast off the kickstand ..... No other way to describe it .

Sounds like your torque compensator.

Go to utube and search victory torque compensator and or clutch issues.

My bike does this while really hot from time to time... If it's the torque compensator I am yanking my motor and doing a 116".

That sucks Mags. I never even got the compensator fix on my '11, since i understood it was just to quiet the racket. no funky noises after 24k besides the ones it had when it came home. I feel for ya brother. Tell those gimps at the dealer to ride it till it makes some noise.

Will this noise cause damage or is it just an irritating clank . Im not sure I want a pimple face 16 year old splitting my motor in two . Maybe it will go away . (Being extemely optimistic) Thanks for the kind words @Luciferiad .

I am confident it IS the Torque Compensator making the noise . I will call the dealer tomorrow and tell them , and see what they say . On my way to my Moms now so I wont be riding for a day or two .
