Thanks for the replies everyone.

Regarding the speed at which I was going when this was happening, it was about 120kph. Divided highway speeds.

The clutch cable, too tight? That's odd. One would think it would become too loose as time went on. I'll check it out tho.

I had the same problem once and found that the nylon nut holding the clutch lever in its housing had tightened itself up somehow. I loosened it off and all was good. Just something to check.

To the OP... did you go to the last RevUp Rally at Revelstoke in July? I had planned to go with a few Red Deer buddies, but it was either that...or visit my parents who I hadn't seen for 4 years in Sask. Didn't have the time to do both.

@half_crazy showed me that the adjustment specs in the book are NOT appropriate- at least- they are not appropriate if you have some go fast goodies installed.

I was having the same symptoms: A periodic slip in high gear. This on a relatively NEW clutch- i.e. installed 2017 riding season. Like RICZ said- your clutch is too tight.

Wise man Larry say: "Fuck that book. I can't read." Warm up first. When at speed- Pull in the clutch a little bit. If your clutch is disengaging with very little pull- it's too tight.
I popped my side cover off- and Larry pulled his glasses down a little bit and scared the adjustment turnbuckle a turn or so. Clutch pull strong now.

LOL... Actually, I used a Crescent Hammer and a 13mm wrench.

It's almost impossible to static adjust a Victory clutch and get it right.

Yeah, higher gear and some throttle... put a load on it... give the lever a slow tug. It needs to move a bit before the revs come up (disengaging). If as soon as you touch it the revs go up, "I found the problem!".

How ya doin'? Ready for the hurricane that's rollin' in?

Ya know, everyone is in a big hurry to get into the highest gear possible as soon as possible... If I'm rolling at 60-65 in 5th it will get way better fuel mileage than it will if I shift 6th. Moral of the story? When you think you need to shift up, don't, leave the shifter alone. There's no law that says you must be in the highest gear possible. Let it spin some, it won't hurt it.

I've decided to forgo grab-assin' with Florence & fly to the Texas hill country for the remainder of the week so I can flirt with the 3 Twisted Sisters instead.

(actually set this up weeks ago)
