Default 03 V92C Wont Start

**Edit - 50psi was due to me not bolting down the injectors. Bike still shows low compression at around 100psi but after cleaning the injectors and running seafoam through the system the bike started up and is now running again.

*Edit - Found the bike only has 50psi compression both front and rear. Currently trying to figure out why it is so low.

Hey, New member have been searching multiple forums for the past few months and I just cant figure out why my bike wont start and this seems to be the place to ask.

Appreciate any input or ideas.

2003 v92c
Fuel pressure - 50psi solid
Spark - Yes, also replaced plugs JIC
Fuel injectors - spray fuel although quite a violent stream
Battery - just got another new 1 yesterday
Fuses - none blown
Lights - all work

Bike will crank but even with starting fluid just will not fire more than the occasional POP.

The bike is stock. I got the bike last October having sat for an unknown period of time (year minimum). Took it home added some fresh gas and changed the oil and she fired right up. I replaced the rear tire and brake pads and she rode fairly smooth but with slight hesitation on hard acceleration. I cleaned the throttle body and she rode much smoother my 2nd trip but right before I got home she started dying. Made it the rest of the way home having to hold the throttle open as she would die at idle. Next day she wouldn't start so i started troubleshooting... that was November.

She is beautiful but this has been a terrible first victory experience.

Thanks in advance for your help!

-Bill

Have you pulled and checked all of your fuses. You need to pull them completely out and look at them.

This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

Yes, I even pulled unrelated fuses. Made sure they were the correct size and had no damage.

Are there any fuses not located in the main fuse panel I may have missed?

bike is getting spark and fuel which is what confuses me the most. It also appears to have good compression based on how it turns over with and without spark plugs but I only have diesel compression testers so I have not yet been able to test actual compression.

I don't think so. I had a 03 but gave the manual away. Is it cranking at all, trying to start. I didn't read your complete post. That is confusing.

Yes, It cranks over and now with a fresh battery it cranks very well.

There is a guy on here that goes by Noe. He's out of Houston, TX and is a pretty good machinic. I know him and have ridden with him a couple of times. If you can figure out how to look him up on here and send him a message he maybe able to help you, he's on facebook. Then Kevin Cross out of Florida Southern Motorworx he is also on facebook. He is one of the best if not the best Victory mechanics there is.

Appreciate the help! I don't want to bug anyone but if I cant figure it out after a few more months I may have to reach out to some experts.

Noe is on here pretty often if he seen your post he would reply. I haven't seen Kevin on here in a long time, but if he seen your post he would have replied.

Heya @NOEMTZ they're lookin' for ya!
In other news, wonder if it's something like out of time or perhaps a bad crank sensor.

I was wondering if it could be a sensor. I have not replaced any sensors yet. would the bike still spark with a bad crank sensor?
