Default Hot no start - 2013 crossroads classic

Well its a 90F day here in Southern Ontario. Was out for a ride and bike was running fine when we stopped at a local restaurant to cool down. After about a 20 min break came out to start the bike. It started right away as per normal but the RPM's were low, around 750 then it died and refused to start. Had to have it towed home. Seems like it is not getting fuel. Lots of fuel in the tank and it turns over just fine. Bike only has 13000km/7500 mile on it. Anyone ever hear of anything like this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tim

put bike on battery tender cause you'll wear
battery down trying to start it. All so check battery bolts with 10mm wrench to make sure there tight. A good idea is add 1/4 inch lock washer to each bolt so they don't come loose again. Are the spark plugs wet from trying to start it. If so then its getting fuel but you might need to do a fuel pump test.
Could of been just to hot out

I have seen issues with mine where the IAC valve didn't reset properly. Would barely idle without a little throttle. Resetting the IAC seemed to help immediately. Toreset it, turn the key on but don't start the bike. Wait a few seconds, then turn it off. If you don't hear a fast "chugging" sound after about 10 seconds, do it again. Keep doing it until you get that "chugging" sound about 10 secs after turning the bike off.

Lots of juice on the battery. Bike turns over fine. Fuel pump relay clicks but pump doesn't seem to run the way it should. Sort of a sick hum more than the normal spool up. Fuse for the pump/coils is fine. Left bike several hours and tried again. NADA. Rolls over, no smell of fuel. Thinking pump must have died????

Well now I'm totally bewildered. Went out this morning and turned the bike on and the fuel pump spooled up as it should. Hit the starter button and the bike fired up just like it should. Ran perfectly. Now what caused this glitch and will it happen again. I'm thinking a vapour lock of sorts between the pump and the injectors. The big question is will it happen again and how do I remedy the problem without waiting 24 hours for the bike to cool off completely.

My first bet would be either a weak battery or terminals that aren't tight enough. My CCT had a low and stumbling idle when the battery was going out. I've ridden in very high temps, 95F to 105F, on several occasions and never had vapor lock issue. Also, the fuel pump is cooled by the gas so it's really not a good practice to run the tank much lower than when the fuel light comes on. That last 1 to 1.5 gal is likely needed to keep the pump cool. Especially in high temperature riding conditions. I always try to gas up either right before my light is due to come on or as soon after as I can.

All the best,

Mark

My tank range is about 420 km 260ish miles). At 300km, i'm filling my tank. Thats 3 hours of riding, which my butt is hard pressed to stand without a break anyway. And leaves about 70 miles to go in the tank. Its a few hairs before my empty light goes on.

not sure if the Victory bikes can have this, but on one of my sportbikes, I used to get vapor lock on the tank, specially hot days. would have to open the fuel cap and vent the tank and it would run fine for a while.... ended up having to trim a couple turns of the spring for the pressure vent in the gas cap because it would build up too much pressure and the vent wouldn't open.... but it sounds exactly like what you are describing... i haven't had any issues like this with my XR or even how/where the tank vents are.. but could be possible i suppose.

I had been doing some reading about a Victory same problem and the guy had it towed to a dealer and the mechanic put the guage on the fuel line( or whereever they put it ) and as soon as the pressure was releived the pump worked proper, mechanic said something about something gets stuck with the pressure.
Good to hear you got it running.

Don't think battery was an issue. Bike turned over quickly and all lights were fine.

Tank was half full when the no start happened so pump should have been adequately cooled.

Went for a little ride around town today with 2 separate 30 minute stops. Bike started and ran as it should.
Now is the worry,will it do it again and how to troubleshoot it and rectify the problem without waiting 24 hours. Will check with the mechanics at the dealership tomorrow to see if they have any suggestions. Annoying to say the least.
