Cruise control not working.
I have the Victory cruise control kit installed on my Vegas 8-ball. It was bought in the USA and installed by my local dealer, here in the UK, late last year. They said they had never installed one before. The throttle cable was missing from the kit, so I had to get another one shipped from the USA. The bike was in their workshop for weeks.
So the weather closed in for the winter right after I got the bike back, so no long runs. Today was the first day I had a chance to try it out and guess what? It doesn't work!! The on light comes on, but when I press SET it does nothing to hold the speed. I tried tapping it as well as holding it for 10 seconds... nothing. I tried 20, 40 and 50 MPH, still nothing.
Is there anything I can check as to why this would be? I feel like an idiot going back to the dealer to ask them to check it, especially 5 months after they did the work. They did tell me they tested it when they installed it.
I believe this is the only accessory install of a cruise control in the UK. Victory UK have never once sold one.
I have a 2010 UK spec model, which is like the US 2011 model. I.e. 106 CI and 6 speed tranny.
