Default I Hate This Bike!!!!

'09 with 15k miles and runs like the engine is full of rocks. Mondo vibration. Been to the shop so many times I lost count. Has PCV, tried all maps, tried 3 settings of timing wheel. Feels like the crank bearings are bad. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!

Sorry to hear but whatever is going on with your bike is typical of Victory.

Sorry to hear that. Have you checked all the mount points of the engine for tight connections. What have you (or a mechanic) done so far to correct this?

This is very atypical for a Victory. In fact in 10 years; this is the first time I've heard of this problem.

Tell us more. Does it happen at idle, when riding, in all gears and speeds? Is the engine pulley tight?

Runs fine up to 1200 rpm, then heavy vibration. I have another Jackpot and it runs great. Had this problem with my first Jackpot and it turned out to be a collapsed fuel line.

Dealer won't work on it because it has a PCV and they don't have software. Going to take the PCV off and start from scratch. Instincts tell me the fuel system is compromised somewhere. Giuess I'll just start with a new fuel pump and go from there.

I understand your frustration but it does sound like a very fixable issue. Perhaps if you had a competent Victory or Independent mechanic in your area that understands the very basic Power Commander tuners.

It may be the ECU needs to be reflashed/replaced or something like what you said; a fuel delivery issue from the injectors to the computer to the tune to the fuel pump.

Could be the PC-V failed too. I think you're smart to take it offline first.

Sheesh! Time for a new guy for sure. I lived in San Diego for 20 years. Got stationed there in the Navy then stayed until I couldn't bear it any longer due to prices and overpopulation.

Where is this mechanic? I doubt it's anyone I know since I've been gone for 20 years. Hmmm... 20 and 20.

It has one throttle body with 2 butterflies, one for each cylinder.

The rubber throttle body adaptor is probably dry-rotted or the IAV hoses are shot... INTAKE AIR LEAK.

It's likely, considering it's 10 years old with only 15k miles...
