hello everyone, i recently invested in my very own 2000 v92sc (i had a 99 with the plaque and fully loded it was number 1121 off the line if im not mistaken!) anyways on this 2000 the previous owner abused and beat the living piss out of it. he ended out laying it down so i bought it for $2000 and im glad he dosent own it any more. needless to say, the 3rd gear will not work, it only clicks when you try to put it in gear, and as for the body, he did a minimal amount of damage given.

anyways back to the topic, i just bought a brand spanking new gear shaft off of ebay for drum role please......... $40

i then proceeded to call my local victory shop who have been a great help, and they send me....... all 50 some pages from their manuel on how to repair it! along with other shorter things they had about the problem and set up!!! the part arives june 3rd est. and i have a motorcycle run planned for june 6th to ride through canada and i want to do it on my new victory, so if all goes well, i will have all of you garage DIY mechanics a simple video that shows you exactly what to do to fix that third gear we all hate!!! cheers

my next post tonight will be about how i am doing a bobber conversion and allot more involving making it a bobber to hide the damages the previous owner inflicted on this beauty, plus its a freaking bobber and bobbers are sweet!

Subscribed ... I never seen a video of the repair in question but with the repair manual downloading from Bbob and your vicshop should be ok mate

Could you start by posting the pictures of your damage ?

And i remember some forum members posting pictures of their gear repair ..

Good luck

he overfilled the oil so it backed up into the intake ruining the filter, and flooding the air box, at one point it managed to get into the engine, and there was a black cloud behind me when i rode it home the first time.

body damage will be next

bad pictures, i will take more tomorow but anyways, the gas tank has a chunk of no paint and rust along with two small dents. the exhaust is full of scratches and took most of the damage, the foot peg was scratched on the underside and end, the front light bezel is ruines, the break fluid on the handle bar is scratched minorly, and the right side mirror is crooked from bending. he replaced the turn signals already. the plugs were gapped to the wrong size too!

Whouwwww that is bad .... All the forum members will have many good ideas, but take it slow so you end up with a great bike

Could you do a cylinder pressure test at one of the shops ??
New spark plugs after replaced filter ?

Cleaning the throttle body wouldn't be a bad idea ha ha ha

Keep on posting about your Repair's we can all learn fom this and help you fixing a great bike ....

i own my own small shop so of course i did a pressure test, never buy something unless you check it, the testers are like $15 at autozone, anyways it came out good. i did clean the entire airbox throttle body, and everything, i did a full tune up when i bought it so yea new spark plugs the old ones had a lot of carbon build up (glad it wasnt oil!!) oh yea, and it was leaking gas because the line had dry rotted, that was an easy fix though. oh yea and the batery had an impact bump on it so i replaced that right away before it gets too cold or hot and explodes on my leg, i live in ohio so crazy weather need to be carful.

Good damn deal.

Pick up a beater for a couple large and maybe throw another grand at it, and take off for parts unknown.

Now that there is motorcycling! If you make it to NY state you got a bed at Pop's house and an ear while you tell tales of your road.

so with 3rd gear gone when are you going to pull the motor and split the cases to get at the transmission

wow, cant believe how much this post blew up! so first off amboymike, my dart is a much larger project than my motorcycle, it is a full frame off build, i am aiming for 1,000 hp out of a 632 big block without forced induction. as far as the cargoes, i stripped off the paint and found out it had been in an acident and rust had taken its tole, so doors, floor, frame, front end, suspencion were all trash. right now i have a new floor in, full tub wheel wells meashuring 24" on each well, i have a jegster roll cage and chassis set up i am installing currently, all made to handle insane power. it has no front end yet, i dont need one for the chassis kit and i will get one of those fancy drop on fender and hood conected ones one day, but cosmetics come last. the orange one is what i am modeling after. the rest is mine, you can see with the paint, you cant see the rust is there because someone who knew what they were doing put an inch thick layer of bondo onto the car! another oowner who i wish i knew to thank him, ledded the gaps in the body that look ugly, and he used real let, an art foarm i never learned but it was an amazing job!

pop, i appreciate that you understand what i am doing, takes a real biker to build their own bike and be proud of it, you learn a bike that way, no substitute. as for staying in new york, i will be passing through but that is on the 1,000 mile run day and i will not be stopping until the middle of ohio when i hit 1,000 miles and earn the iron butt.



visionjohnny i have one post about the third gear repair, one post about the bobber conversion, and bs on the new members page becuse i had to make 2 posts there before i can post to the main fourms, this is for your convenience to ensure i m not a robot.. i thought that these two were unrelated enough and large enough that they deserved their own posts. someone reserching a v92 bobber probably dosent want to hear about my third gear woes the same way someone who wants to know how my third gear goes so they can do it themself, probably dont give a care about how i made my bike into a bobber. as for the transmission job, i will do it when i get the parts and have a free day or two, expected start is june 3rd but it is in the hands of the mail gods if i get an early or late start.

It was a design flaw and doesn't take much to ruin them, if you switch into third without letting the rpm drop a thousand or so, it ruins the gear after a few hundred times. Mostly from people getting onto the on ramp of a highway or going from a slow speed to a higher speed quickly

im about to crack the case tomorrow, i needed the flywheel puller that i can only get from victory, none of my local shops has the right size bolt.. oh and by the way, you all remember how i bought the gears for $40 well when i got them, there was light signs of wear so imessaged the seller and he gave me a full refund and said i could keep the gears! that is more money to put towards maybe doing an engine upgrade!!! lets push 120hp

Perhaps too late but here's a vid of a 106 swapped in a V92. Easy to get 120 h.p. out of a 106

Vid takes a used ebay 106 and goes through the steps of a swap.

Special fly-wheel-puller ?? But the bolt "push" on the shaft to pull the gear ? So it does not matter what size bolt the puller has ?

So when you split the case please show us the damage WHY third gear is not working ??

How are you going to get more power, by balancing / grinding like H/C did ?

Good luck my friend ...
