Default CC seems to be running rough...

I went for a short ride today, about 40 miles one way, stopped at an event for about 5 hours, got on the bike and rode home. The temp outside was around 75, a nice day for a ride. I got back into town and doing the stop and go traffic and the bike seems to be running weird. It seemed like when I started out at a stop light in 1st gear, it would run like I was started out in second. Even 2nd and 3rd were kind of the same way. It is a 2011, with around 13,000+ miles on it. This spring I put in a Timing gear +4, and it seemed to be running great. Now it seems to be back firing more (it didn't at all up until a couple of weeks ago). Also, when I got back into town, the dipstick gauge was reading 240 and general in is right around 200. I did change oil a couple of weeks ago, but I used the Victory kit and I checked my oil this morning and it was good.

It seems like when it gets hot it runs like that (at least the last 2 times of 40+ miles).

My closest dealer is 2-3 hours away, so I am just curious if anyone has any ideas. I have had the bike for about 1 1/2 years, and I know that the 106 motor is a little noisey, but this is a new noise.

When you installed the timing wheel did you torque the 2 small bolts that hold the timing setting? They are shipped set at +4 but the bolts are not torqued. Sounds like your timing may be off.

It could be something as simple as crap gas. Try the cheap route first, run it close to empty then fill up with premium at a new (or newish) gas station. Getting gas at old gas stations opens you up for pouring gas in your tank that is contaminated with years of crud and water that's sitting in the underground tanks.

Don't forget to check the battery connections.
Every summer the Victory gnomes go on vacation causing mischief wherever they go. Loosening battery terminals while you sleep is their specialty.

Make sure they're tight. You'll feel like an idiot if at the end that is all it was and loose battery terminations have caused stranger things on X bikes.

I would try new gas first unless you have already run gas from different stations and there is no change. I would also check the throttle body adapters for cracks. They do develop cracks after a while do to heat.

I agree; start with the fuel first. Make certain the battery bolts are tight and place lock washers under the bolts. Double check the timing wheel bolts; remove and apply blue loctite to threads and tighten, but not real tight - you can strip the threads as others have.
Tip: Never fuel up at a gas station that's fueling up, that roils up water and crud from the storage tanks bottoms. If you recently did that, I suspect water in your fuel.

Thanks for all the responses. I usually get gas a Kwik Trip, and run premium, I am almost empty so maybe I will try a Holiday Station. I will check the timing wheel, but when I got it, I knew that the 2 bolts were loose, but I still wasn't able to turn the wheel because it fit that tight. I did use the blue lock tite that they supplied when I put it in. If I pull off the cover to look at the timing wheel, should I still pull it off if it is still at +4?

Someone also said to check the air filter? I have the stage 1 kit, do I just take out the filter and blow some air through it? I will double check the battery. Where are the throttle body adapters?

I hope it is something that easy. It really made me nervous when it started to do it. Can't afford for something major to go wrong. It is raining here today, so tonight sounds like a good night to do some checking while I am smoking some Maple Habanero Beef snack sticks. I will let everyone know what I find.

Kwik Trip gas is ethanol free Holiday is not. Use some sea foam on what gas you have now.
download pure gas app to your phone and then you can find non ethanol gas

if you go get seafoam get some spark plugs at the auto parts store, ask for NGK p/n 3481 they will be $5.00 bucks for two. Thats a big savings over dealer wanting $14 bucks for two

So are you saying that I shouldn't be buying from Kwik Trip? It doesn't really matter to me if that is the case. Kwik Trip just opened in Duluth, so they are everywhere, but so are Holiday's.
