Default new victory owner

well i found that deal i was lookn for. picking up my new to me victory v92c this coming monday. it is a 2003 with less than 1500 miles. the man bought it new in 05 and rode it for the summer, when his buddy was tryin to keep up with a sport bike he dumped his vstar. so the man didn't like the idea of getting all busted up like his buddy so the bike has just been sitting in a shed that looks like it is goin to cave in at any moment. will get pics as soon as i get it to the house. any ideas on what the bike might need to get it running other than the gas drained and a new battery. fuel injecter cleaner maby. any tips would be greatly appreciated

The feeling of excitement when you get a new ride is special.

Looks like you did well - a somewhat true 'Barn Find"

Look closely at the tires

Good luck and enjoy the ride.

I believe your bike is fuel injected so when you put the new bat in turn the key on then off. Do this a couple time so the fuel pump gets re primed. Maybe be for firing it spray some wd40 in the cylinders and spin the motor over with no plugs in it so you get some lube on the top end. Lube the throttle cables and the clutch pivot area. If the bike has been sitting that long I would replace all the brake fluids and the tires have to go.
Take your time and maybe make a check list so you don't miss something. You can do a search here and I believe Diamond has some manuals downloads. Take your time its what you have the most of.
Good Luck

You didn't buy a Victory! You stole one! Somebody call the cops please.

Congrats on your steal. Make sure you change all the fluids a.s.a.p. and as the others have suggested, get new tires. Take your time with it, and make sure everything's in working condition before you launch yourself on a highway.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Welcome to the VF.


WOW...yeah you got a steal there!!!

If he hasn't started it on a regular basis then drain and replace the gas and oil first. That stuff has been sitting in their a long time.

The battery is probably no good so replace that.

The only other issue I can think of is when you get a chance, remove the tank and seat. Then check the wire insulation/shrink wrap. Remember your bike is almost 8 years old. On some of the older bikes the shrink wrap around the wires gets brittle and breaks. If you ride it too long like that it can literally cut through the wires and give you electrical headaches.

These bikes are pretty much bullet proof. Do the above and you should be good to go.

Where are you located? There might be a good Victory dealer around your area.

Battery and fluids are simple and you should be able to do yourself. Removing the wheels is pretty easy also.
