I went on an almost 300 mile ride today through the mountains here in Colorado with my 2002 V92C. She has 11,000 miles. The bike runs perfectly but there is an annoying tapping/ticking sound which manifests after 55 mph. It gets loudest after 65 but seems to go away right at 70. I do not think it is valves or piston related. Other portions of the Victory Forum have posts about newer bikes making sounds through the throttle body but I found nothing in our older bike forum. I have gone over the bike looking for something loose but did not find anything. I am thinking knock sensor or throttle bodies. I did go through an entire tank of gas today and filled up at Shell with high octane. There was no change. Does anyone know of a model related issue which might be the cause?
ByteN2it: That is awesome you mentioned the windshield. I never heard the sound until I installed the windshield. I thought that was causing the sound and was planning on removing it this weekend to see if there was a difference. Thanks for the input.
