Default Please help, not sure what topic to put.

So I was on a ride the other day, left the breakfast place.....bike stalled. Started fine, rode up the hill a ways.....started trying to die and backfire. Mt buddy bringing up the rear said it was running way rich, and my taillight went out when the bike starting dying out. I found a loose battery cable, cleaned and tightened that. Bike still stalled out a couple times. Do you think a TPS reset is needed because of the battery issue?
Sorry for the long story, just want you to know the details. 05 kingpin

My buddy had the exact same issues with his harley, bike would try and stall/die, running poor/rich. Lights were acting up. Turns out the battery had shit the bed even though it would start. Try a new battery or swapping one from your buddy's to try it.

put battery on charger and after it has a full charge go get a load test on it. I'm thinking its the original battery and its done for.

Clean the throttle should be done once a year I'm thinking
look for cracks in the rubber plugs and hoses

The battery is a good place to start. According to the manual, the battery should read no less than 12.5V when the motor is off. It wouldn't hurt to charge it and then check it with a meter. If the reading starts dropping, it's toast.

When my original battery recently died on me I could get the motor to turn over sometimes and then another the lights would come on then die.

I replaced the battery with a Chrome battery. It was inexpensive and has been working well for me.

I just put a new battery in about 2 months ago. Throttle bodies are clean, air filter is clean, battery connections are clean and tight. Called dynojet, they said to do a reset on the PC3 and reload the map, still runs like crap. It has been running fine for about a year, no changes made.....and now it stutters and stalls randomly. I even tried a different map, no luck.
I'm really missing my Honda right now, never an issue with that bike.

Well you could plug it into the computer at the dealership and it should come up with the error....or
Take it to a reputable tuner and have it dynoed
Or..buy that Honda back

You have an electrical gremlin somewhere. Check all relays and the circuit breaker. Check your grounds. Any relays that come apart lokk for moisture, clean and use dielectric grease. Watch when you wash your bike and where you spray water. Time to get familiar with your Victory. Do you have a service manual? Good luck.
