Default Victory Stalling when engaged

Well, it was dead earlier (see earlier post), changed the battery and it was running great.
Then it sat for 2 weeks as I was out of town, I connected the charger overnight on retun and batery was showing flat 12V on meter.
Then I started the bike, left it on idle for a few min, then I took off down the road. First stop sign, as I came to stop the bike stalled. siwtched it on and off a couple of times no FF priming sound. Then it started again. But as soon as I enagged and started to move, it stalled.
Same thing all over again. When it stalls, need to switch it on-off a couple of time before it primes. Then as I start to engage and move, it stalls again. As it happens I can hear the engine starting to stall, but giving more gas does not help.
Anybody had similar experience or any thoghts on this?

1.) Check if battery connections are tight.

2.) If battery connections are tight, you might have a fuel pump on its last legs.

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

Unhappy Engine suddenly quits

I have the same problem Kountry boy is having. I'll be riding along 70 mph when suddenly the engine quits just like someone reached up and hit the kill switch. While still rolling, I can rock the kill switch back and forth a couple of times and the engine will start again! (probably not the safest procedure, but it works) I went as far as disassembling the switch thinking it was dirty but all checked okay, The inside of the switch looked new. My bike is 2003 touring cruiser, always been garaged. I live in Tulsa Ok. Anyone else having this problem?

were you using a digital meter? a good 12v battery will show over 12 volts. try putting the meter on the battery and hitting the start button. if it drops to nearly nothing you have a shorted battery.just because it shows good when not under load doesn'r matter.

Ridealittle: Thanks, The battery is brand new. I will check it for a short as you suggested.
Crossroads: You may be right, it sounds like a FP. When it dies, and I shut off and start again, it doesn't prime right away. Takes a couple of tries. So you may be right.
Is there a way to check FP and where can I buy one?

Make sure you allow some 10 seconds (rough guess) between attempts to cycle the fuel pump. If you flip the switch on and off too soon it won't cycle again.

If you think the fuel pump is going belly up, you can rent a pressure gauge from local auto parts store, and hook it up to the fitting to see if the pump works.

If the fuel pump is dead, visit this site: http://thevicshop.com/ - they are the cheapest path of travel to get your fuel pump back running.

Sounds to me like your kill switch is mucked up.

Took the thing by Cruisin 66 while in Springfield a couple of weeks ago. They also said the switch looked good. Weird huh? I'm wondering if it's a short in the wiring?

if it were wiring, it would actually be an intermittent open. If you have a multimeter, it would be a good idea to check the wiring. For the symptom you are having, it either has to be the kill switch, relay, or possibly something with the tip sensor malfunctioning. From your description I assume that the lights etc are coming on when turning the key on. so it wouldn't be the battery, nor would the battery explain why it's stalling.
