Hello to all Victory Owners out there. I am a Brit working in Holland and have just picked up my 2000 V92 SC from my friendly Ex Victory dealer in Swindon UK (new regulator/rectifier) and driven down to Devon in South West England and then ten hours to South Limburg in southern Holland. South Limburg is a lovely area sandwiched between Belgium to the west and Germany to the East. I am now investigating a stutter on the bike that manifested itself about halfway back that seems to occur at about 50 or 60 mph. I have not investigated yet but I will lift the tank and clean the throttle bodies as a first step having checked the fuel flow from the tank. Having had a throttle position sensor go on a Moto Guzzi a couple of years back I suspect that is the culprit. Question, does anyone know a source of the correct TPS for the bike? Also I want to track down an original clutch cable as the one I have fitted looks incorrect. I would value contact with other owners of V92SC, I have a project V92C in build as well. Best wishes to all and safe riding. Andrew

It looks like I am first on this dance floor. I had a Cross Roads, not a bike like yours, but I've been on this forum long enough that I picked up enough knowledge to be dangerous and I like to start with the cheap and easy things first. If your bike sat for a long spell, you might want to run a good cleaner in the petrol tank. In the US, Seafoam is the favorite brand. If there are more than 10K miles (or the metric equivalent) on the spark plugs, put in new ones. Cleaning the throttle bodies is a good thing too, but as far as the TPS goes, hopefully another member will step onto this dance floor and cut in.
Oh....and welcome to this forum. Lots of good guys and advice here.

Thanks very much for your swift response. Let us hope that there are some more so that I can get this mystery misfire sorted. I will of course pull the plugs as a starter in the process. I took the precaution of adding a bottle of fuel system cleaner during my run across France and Belgium last weekend. Thanks again, ride safe. Andrew

Thank you Skin for your welcome. Despite my best efforts I have yet to ride on two wheels in the States. I did manage a few weeks on a Honda Shadow in Canada many years ago but don't tell anyone! Best, Andrew

Welcome to the site. I would be checking for vacuum leaks especially since you will have the tank off. The throttle body goose neck and on the right side there are 2 rubber caps that are notorious for splitting. As far as the clutch cable many have installed the Barnett cables, they are after market but are top notch and I believe are even a bit cheaper than the oem.

Cool Welcome from N. Alabama

Welcome to the forum. Your entry line reminds me of a line from a George Thoroughgood song "It wasn't me " AKA " I met a German girl in England Who was goin' to school in France ". (Just havigf you off mate) At any rate don't know if it'll help but there is a "V92C parts manual here: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/aoq...ictory_Manuals. Should have the parts ID in it.....Hope it helps and again, welcome. LMYR

Long may you ride!

Thank you kindly for the link. That clutch cable is definitely suspect, there is a click as you pull it. New one to be ordered. Oh, yes and the rear indicator lenses have 'Harley Davidson' stamped on them. Hmmmm...
