Pressing the "Dec" button on my bikes decreases the cruise setting by about 1 mph. Depending on your bikes speed, the cruise setting, and the slope of the road, this might result in a sudden and large decrease in speed and then the cruise will try to catch up. The Victory cruise control is not the best tuned in the world. Sort of like their auto-cancelling turn signals. They usually work fine but once in a while for no discernible reason, they do not cancel after a turn.
Anyway, back to my cruise control problem.... I tugged, wiggled, and pushed and pulled on the idle and throttle cables today before a ride and this fixed the problem I had with the cruise not setting. I think, as someone pointed out, the one of these two cables with the switch on it was not properly in place or adjusted. I will let this go for a while and see if the problem returns before trying to find a more definite fix.
