: Clanking noise/any ideas?

06-16-2010, 08:41 PM
For starters, I have a 2004 V92TC, Stage 1 exhaust, Ventilated intake cover w/ K&N Filter, and Lloydz Fuel Controller (II). Bike runs great, never a problem, just over 37 K miles.

This evening went for a quick spin, bike is running great, but there is an intermittent noise, from where is hard to tell, but it sounds like the engine. Noise sounds somewhat like a heat expansion popping, only really loud. Engine never misses and tranny shifts and runs smooth. The noise is not consistent, and comes under steady load, but not necessarily under acceleration. I nursed it back home, but no matter how easy I took it, the noise was still there. I could use some really good suggestions ASAP, as I am planning on going to Sturgis for the pre-rally. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. BTW, my Victory Dealer is in Katy, TX, Polaris West. Thanks.

OK, even though there were no replies to this, it turns out it was a combination of bad rear wheel bearings and the belt riding up the side of the rear sprocket and then popping back into place.
