Getting ZERO love at the techy section :confused:; so V92 brethren unite! cheers

New noise need an opinion please: First gear only, semi-getting on it has a sound I can only describe as the AFlac duck with a sore throat just yelling AAAAAA. I can ride all day without the noise if I don't accelerate too much in 1st. Noise seems to emanate from primary but hard to ride with my head down there. I'm not a rubber burner, but can't vouch for the previous owner.

It also has the infamous neutral rattle that goes away with clutch in, I can live with that. (by the way, steel toes made big difference in shift quality, who knew)

9800 miles, bought Jan 2011 with 7000 miles, looked new.

Also need Victory tech with most experience in LA, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino county. Not sure I want the Ducati or Harley tech who just completed a seminar experimentin.

Yes, I want your good/bad experiences if you have any in these areas. Thank you.

The rattle noise that goes away with the clutch pulled=normal.

The Aflac duck squawk, does this happen while you are releasing the clutch ? If so, it is somewhat normal as well, at least with the 99's. I haven't heard a lot of cases with the newer bikes doing it but some do.

While it is embarrasing at times, it really isn't a problem that needs attention. My 99 has been doing it since new...still does at 46K miles.

I'm told its due to a slight glazing of the clutch plates. Ride on.

Wow, das weird! Yes, right after posting I noticed it was whilst letting out clutch, once clutch out no noise even when jumping on it.

Thanks for the response jbasile, my fellow junior member!
Did you take it to a Vic shop to get that answer?

I'm still hoping to get a referral on an experienced Victory mechanic in the LoCal area.

No sir, I've never taken it to a dealer for that. I was told by a mechanic at an independent Vic shop. To me its a non problem.

Also, you might notice that if you (while stopped) slightly engage the clutch at a light that the "squawk" will not occur when you take off.

Like I said, its a minor annoyance, and unless you have a lot of bones, I dont think I'd spend the money on it. You would "probably" have to replace the clutch with a Barnett to eliminate the squawk. Expensive, and IMO, not worth it.
