Default Popping Sound

Just bought my Vegas on Friday.......Had it out for a ride today and it was popping fairly frequently. Never owned a cruiser so I don't know if this is normal or not. It is brand new (2 miles on it). Any thoughts?

Is it a stock exhaust?

Tell your dealer to to a TPS reset on it and see if it improves.

Its pretty normal with aftermarket exhaust but if he has the stock setup thats not normal.

Default Same problem here

I just bought a new 09 Vegas with the stock swept pipes.... frequent "popping" on decel. What's really annoying is that on the 2010 Vegas with the same exhaust that I test drove, there was none whatsoever. I've got the 500mile service coming up soon, I'll bounce the BCU/ TPS issues with the tech..... hopefully he can tweak something. Also, it seems like my belt is rubbing on the outer side of the pulley and not tracking directly down the middle..... is that just an alignment thing or something more sinister like a bad pulley ??

The belt travel varies on different bikes. Sometimes its alignment and other times its just the way the belt travels on that particular bike.

No TPS adjustment possible on the 08 and up bikes. Totally different injection system. On your test ride you prolly rode the 2010 a little more timidly then you do the 09 you have become more familiar with. One thing is certain in the world of Victory. ALL Vic Swept pipes pop like a bitch. You can try unplugging your o2 connectors to reduce it a little. You won't trip a check engine light, and the overall drivability will improve
