I heard back from Don Woods Victory spares - they have no part number for the TPS and I have to order the whole throttle body assembly. I read somewhere that these TPS were common to many automobile applications, the Guzzi one I got was for a Citroen hatchback or something. What I need is the original manufacturers part number rather than the Victory part number. I will keep digging.

Where in the Netherlands are you? If plans go right, my wife and I will be there next spring. I can bring a Barnett clutch cable - the finest.

You may not need to buy a new "Victory" cable. If mine ever breaks....

3/32 cable from home depot or ace (or local auto part supplier in Holland) and 2 barrel type cable stops. Pull the broken cable out of the liner and feed the new cable in

Bare braided steel cable on 2014 CCT measures 2.5mm (0.098")

Cable stops from AutoZone $3 (not sure what euros would be) (or local auto part supplier in Holland)
Bolts from home depot $3 (not sure what euros would be) (or local home DIY store in Holland).


Get the cable, cut it to length, pull the old one out, lube up the new cable a bit and feed it through. Put ends on. Ride it like you stole it! ;-) LMYR

Be careful lubing up the new cable, you don't want to get most lubricants into the inside of the cable sleeve as this can cause the plastic sleeve to swell and make movement of the cable difficult resulting in very hard clutch level pull.

https://www.noemtz.com/ Last I knew he has a batch of new TPS sensors. There is a wrong and a right way to screw these on too. I think Vic shop detailed that in a video. On HD's you want to hold the sensor against the butterfly a certain way so there is no play.

Probably should've said insert the cable and lube (grease) the ends. At least that's what I do versus the "whole cable". Thanks for the tip. LMYR

Thanks to all for your suggestions. I have spoken with Barnett and they advised me to measure from handlebar to inline adjuster in order to get the right length. They carry two V92 lengths, I am guessing one for the Cruiser and one for the sport cruiser. So I will try that over the weekend knowing that the existing one is not stock. And the reason for the clicking is an undersized barrel around the lever nipple. I do not even want to talk about the lash-up at the clutch actuator end... Storms in Holland today and showers over the weekend should keep me in the garage.

...and with more storms today I managed to get some time on the bike in the dry. So, pulling the spark plugs was relatively straight forward. My, aren't they a long way down! Looking at them I saw that they were clearly over-gapped' if there is such a word. A quick check showed the first at .040 instead of the handbook .032 inches. The second was no better but interestingly (for me anyway) was that neither plug was actually firmly screwed in. Bizarre. After a good clean, re-gap and a promise to buy new NGKs when next in town I snugged them up tighter. I wonder if they are the originals? I had a Harley once with only 8000 miles which developed a misfire and when l pulled the plugs they were most probably the thirty-odd year old original HD ones. New plugs and the misfire vanished. I'll see if it does the trick with the Victory. So onto the top of the injection throttle bodies. Having watched Rylan's very useful how-to video l got jiggy with the screwdriver and opened to top to find rather more oil sloshing around in the airbox than was expecting (!) and frankly minging throttle bodies. I mopped out the oil which I assumed came from the engine breather (an overfill perhaps by a previous owner?) and used some carb cleaner to restore the lustre of the throttle bodies. Much better. To my relief shining a torch through the route back to the air filter revealed an almost new one in place with no oil contamination. Note to self; keep an eye out for oil contamination in the throttle body box. So the next job was to measure the clutch cable whilst the tank was off. I am still not sure that the cable is an original but it did have the adjuster in the middle hidden under a (perished) rubber bellows that I was expecting. Another look at the lever end and I decided to pull the pivot and see if I could take some slop out of it. The pivot goes through a bushing in the lever with a washer at each end which I wasn't expecting. After I picked them off the floor and cleaned up the assembly I greased it all and put it back together. There was a marked improvement but the nipple is still a loose fit in the lever so I am going to ring Barnett and order a new one. I will see if I cannot get a picture of the throttle bodies after the cleaner did its work.

I also noticed, but have not yet fixed, that the fast idle cable had way too much slack in it. It is only just tweaking the butterflies instead of opening them up a bit. Another job for tomorrow. With a bit of luck the sun will shine and I can work outside....
