Vics are gear driven noisy engines and clunky tranny!

Has the tranny upgrade been done on your bike?

+1 to diamondrmp
Had an '02 V92C. I believe Polaris installed the Freedom engine beginning in '02 to "quiet" the clunking from earlier models but still clunked. Just consider the clunking as "character".

I just bought a 2001 last week myself.

It also goes CLUNK....but seems to shift just fine.

What year did they fix the noisy shifting? I'm looking at getting an '03 - '05 TC, so would the tranny upgrade be something I should ask the seller about?

my first 01 and my current 01 were the same... shift into first and it sounds like someone hitting a piece of plate steel with pool cue, but upshifting from there isn't so bad IMHO. One thing that I've noticed is on a fresh oil change it is alot smoother, and as the oil gets older, it gets louder.

Your fine Tuck. 03 and up Freedom's are good. Now VIC is a little louder on the clunk maybe and as you approach your 2500-3000 mile oil change you will notice neutral is a little harder to find as well as stiffer shifting but nothing to worry about. 04 and up has a better mono shock than the 03 I am told if you have two sitting side by side. What would make a differnce that you might want to ask about is the ECM flash (stage 1??), your exhaust and if the stock air box is still installed vs not. A stage 1 flash with level 1 pipes and a K&N in the stock box is about as good as you can get in performance and still maintianing some resemblance of a not so loud ride. PM me if you have questions. Im not THE expert but I have had my 04 about 10 months now and been in these forums deep!

Good luck! Tim

Ok, thanks, Tim, that's good to know. I have been reading that a stage one kit is a desired upgrade so I'm hoping to find one that already has that.

Ive seen some really good prices on some 04/05 TCs in the past few months. What a machine! So much you can do with it. I am very happy I bought it over the HD's I was eyeballin. I just rolled over 10k since I bought it and I change the oil at 2500ish and plugs at 5k. Maybe overkill but what the heck, if Im taking them out to inspect them Im changing them.. lol.. Worst headache I had was the turn signals and I just swapped out the stock plastichrome for some nice fat HD chrome and they are sweet. Keep us posted on your search and purchase. Say no to the Pin.. lol.. we need more TC owners here... lol..

Yeah, really the only attraction with the KP so far is the fact that I test-rode one last weekend at the local Vic dealer when the Vic factory truck was there (see my new avatar). It was a sweet ride and sold me on the idea of going with a Vic. It does have the advantage of the six-speed tranny over the TC and it seems like that would come in handy on my occasional trips across the state to Spokane to visit family. However, I am hoping someone will convince me the TC does just fine on the freeway in 5th...
