I have a 2000 v92 sc with the the normal transmission problem. Kicks out of 3 and 4 gear. I know they offer the update kit with the new trans and speed sensor. But my question is does anybody know the real problem ie with part is the problem shift fork, gears, or what. If anybody knows any fixes i just dont want the spend 1600 dollor with old victory thanks guys for you help
My understanding is the shift forks wear and bend/break. But i was just talking to a Vic Mechanic who has done a number of these upgrades he always finds the forks are bad and other things everyone has been different. If you have any mechanical ability do a freedom update. drop an 02-05 freedom motor in it that is what I did and I love it. I found my motor for $1000. There are a number of people who have gone this route and i haven't heard any complaints.
i have head of this i was going to go this way doing the swap. but this engine has be bored over barnett clutch and different cams i was told by the guy i bought it from. i hate to throw all that stuff away and the bike only shows a little over 4000 miles it does have a salavage title. but i olny have a little over 600 buck in the bike so cant be to mad lol. would you be willing to asking him one other question for me do he know any aftermarket place to get trans parts bearing gear the kind of stuff i am going to mechine the shift rods and forks out of some hard steel on a cnc thanks so much for your help
The problem starts with the shift drum bearing rocking in the case from lack of support. This causes the shift forks to either wear on one side or bend; depending on your riding style. This in turn causes incomplete engagement of 2nd and 3rd gears. The dogs and slots wear on those gears, and now they jump out of gear. Throw in some lack of lubrication issues, and you have a trans that will fail every time. Just replacing rods and forks will do little if any good. Plus making overly rigid shift forks; will kill the unsynchronized shifting.
Only parts available are in the form of a upgrade kit, and you will have to run the 2001 kit; as the other kits are no longer available. The cost is $1863, and you will still have to do the labor. Switching to a Freedom(even stock) wil leave that old engine inthe dust performance wise, and prolly cost less.......or I'll give you $600 for it before you take it apart
Hay thanks for all the great info guys i hate to pay the money but i may have to. I know the guy i got it from tried racing a crouch rocket at muncie dragway and then this problem. He told me when i got it off him the fork was bent and he was a victory tech. Me know ever dealing with a victory took his work (and i got it cheep) he also stated you could just remove the primary and pull the trans (also not correct its in the care after in open the pramary up. He also stated to me he has fix this problem before you staten the fork and run a beed of weld on the back side to make it strong after all this i am sure this is BS to i am not sure what to to update kit or freedom swap
Well guys after long hard thought of all the info you guy gave me witch i am thankfull for. I am going to try it i will post pic of the wohle process in making the fork and the break down of the engine. I just hate the face that victory will not stay by there bike and fix the trans. And then have the nerve to bust you for 1800 plus gasket kit and ect. I know some say it will not work like i think i have a hook up via my dad on all bearing he runs a carquest in muncie i will insepct the gears and sinkros for ware it all ok i will make the fork and post how i did this whole thing so if any other then myself is stupid enuff to try this they will know how
