Default 06 victory and trans question

Just rode my 06 home from who I purchased it, bike runs amazing and is so much better then my harley I just sold, I noticed so false 2nd gear problems had to pull the clutch in one or twice and it ended up shifting fine, 2nd question it seems to not wanna shift into any gears the more RPM or the more you are under throttle, it will go just have to really slam it in gear, keep in mind riding normal and lower rpm shifts is fine, anyone else have this issue? Thanks

Default 06 Vegas trans

My 06 Vegas seems to be hard to shift at times when the RPMís are up, sometimes when shifting 3-4 or even shifting 4-5 at a high RPM it doesnít wanna shift, shifter wonít move up no matter how hard I try, normal riding totally fine, shifts like butter. Anyone ever have this?

Not had that problem but two (or three) questions come to mind. 1. Is your oil "good" (Sometimes it's the simple things). 2. If you let off the gas real quick and let the clutch out and then back in will it shift? If so it "could" be synchros - that's sort of extreme but with the way you describe it....... 3. Is the tranny making ANY unusual noise? (Whining or such). 4. (yea there is a "4") Finally and perhaps the easiest, have you check the clutch adjustment? It could be it's not engaging completely or some such at high speed. Hope this helps.

Long may you ride!

Iím changing the oil actually this weekend, I was half a quart low according to the dipstick, doesnít make any unusually noises or sounds, it shifts perfect other wise besides when you really get on it and are in the higher rev range, I did have big boots on so it was slightly harder to have my foot under the shifter, never did the clutch adjustment I just purchased the bike a day ago, from the looks of the oil Iím pretty certain it has to be changed, when I shift from 5-6 running 65-70 itís smooth as can be! Really solid bike, I have heard and looked into it more and it seems the when the oil is hot or heated up this does tend to happen to some people

Default Clutch adjustment

Make sure the clutch is adjusted cold. Check for a 0.5 to 1.5mm free play at the clutch lever. These bikes seem to be really touchy on the clutch adjustment. Really you do NOT want tooo much free play or it will not disengage the clutch, on the other hand you want a small amount or the clutch will slip under a load without any free play. You should also check it with the bike COLD. These things warm up and expand alot with all the aluminum. So that all being said I live in the desert, the bike gets really hot, when it gets HOT the clutch seems to want to drag or not disengage, so the least free play in the clutch the better on my bike, others may differ. Also my bike with 53,000+ miles still is running the stock clutch. Other note: my bike I have already changed the stock clutch cable to a Barnett brand cable, much easier to use, and much smoother. Also every 2500 miles grease the clutch cable ends, it will last longer.

Its the biggest victory BS that oil makes it hard to shift.

Yea I agree...but what the heck....Figure start small and work his way up. I would suspect a clutch adjustment but it could be more serious or just style (doubt it) but again I like to keep it simple. LMYR

Long may you ride!
