Ok, anyone ever try to run an electric drill that is metal bodied and is ice cold. If so, you know that ugly screeching/vibration sound it makes when it is cold. Well, that sound is coming from my V92C on deceleration in this weeks 50* weather. Ever heard of this anyone?
Kinda sounds like a starter gear has a bad bearing.
Funny thing about Vic's is the starter gear is always engaged unlike a car or most other bikes I know of. It's basically a ratchet type thing that engages when the starter spins but just spins after the motor is started.
This why a lot, if not all, Vic's have that funny sound after turning the bike off sometimes. Not all the time; just sometimes. It's the motor turning the stater after it stops and turns backwards sometimes.
Thanks for the reply Bbob , I was hoping it wasn't the tranny that these bikes are known for . I will have that starter checked out when I get a minute. Have you ever heard an old drill do that when it is cold? Kinda weird sounding .
Didn't find anyone with tranny issues describe this sound so I am hoping it isn't that. Thanks again
Not sure if the Cush drive completely solved the trans issues or not . Any one know the answer or have problems with an 01 tranny? There are lots of threads on this but can't find anyone saying their 01 failed.
