Default 2nd Gear

Took my 2000 V92TC out for a ride last week for the first time since winter set in. Bike ran good as usual but I noticed it was hard to get in 2nd gear. Didn't seem to want to shift in easy but didn't want to pop out of gear. Now I know I need to change my oil since it's due and I used Castrol Synthetic Blend at the time because I didn't know what oil wold be best at the time. Any comments?

I would change the oil to verify if there is a problem first. If it still has that problem, then look into the possibility of transmission problems. Obviously, you know the '99-'01 transmission problems. Did yours get the fix for the early trans problems? If not, you could be in for a very expensive repair/replace.

I don't think anyone makes the upgrade kit for those transmissions anymore, but I could be wrong. If it is the trans going out, look up Pinwall Cycle. They have a bunch of parts for Vic's and last time I looked they had a complete 2003 engine. It should swap right in

Yes I buy a lot of parts off of Pinwal but if it is the transmission then it's Bye Bye for that bike. To bad because I love that bike but Victory should have recalled every Victory they sold to keep they're reputation.
Let's hope for the best.

Ok I changed the oil but that didn't fix anything. It's not bad, you just have to make sure you hit second gear, I use my heel and it goes into gear. Guess I'll look into talking to Rylan for one of his tranny rebuilds.

You could find someone to rebuild the trans. You could swap in a newer motor w trans. You could sell that bike and get a 2003-up. None of the options are cheap, it sucks that your trans is going out. I know how you feel, my engine died 2 days after I bought my bike lol
