I bought this V92C about 2 Months ago.This forum was very helpful
on my decision. I'm very happy with this bike it runs great and haven't
really found any major problems with it. I have pounded it through
the gears a few times and no problem with third. I do have a check
engine on but the bike runs good so I'm not concerned about it right
now. at some point i will take it to the dealer and have it checked.
I know these bikes have a charging issue and i do put mine on a
battery maintainer if I'm not going to ride for a few days. I;m getting
13.9 volts when riding, what should i be getting? Well i guess that's
my introduction to the V92 Forum. Thanks Guys

Year

Sorry about the brain fart. It's a 1999 and i think it's just a standard
Cruiser. I never looked on the frame for a model number. One other
thing i forgot to mention is i will need to change out the clutch plates,
just wondering what kind of job it is. I have done that job on a Harley
before and it was pretty easy on that.

Nice lookin bike bro, welcome to the club! Can't really help you on the clutch plates, but I'd assume it's roughly similar. If you have the skills to do it on a Harley, you can figure the Vic out, but that's my opinion lol.

I've been on my 01 for a year now.

As far as voltage, mine idles in the mid/low 12's. Running at highway speeds, it's all over the map....changes a lot with temperature, actually. Seems like the colder the weather, the higher the voltage. Couldn't begin to explain why.

On the average day I've seen it at high 14's....seen it at mid/high 12's. Tends to normally run mid 13's.

I had to replace the regulator and battery when I bought the bike, but since then I haven't had any issues with it. I do find that putting it on battery maintainer when not riding for a week or so makes a difference.

Just guessing if your at a stop light and it 12v something your probably ok. When going down the road and your get 13v to 14v its telling you that you battery is being charged. Its not telling you the battery it's self is good but it's say stator and regulator are working.

If your bike is going to sit for a day or two you should not have to plug it in. Put a full charge in battery and take it to a auto parts store or ride the bike to a batterys plus and get a load test on it. When you bought it did the guy say any think about the battery?
I'm sure the guy replaced it I never heard of a battery lasting 12 years.

If the clutch is working save your self $300 buck and don't mess with it.

Model Number

OK, I cant find a model number itself. Maybe you guys can help.
The vin number is 5VPCB15D8X3001156 as far as the mileage go's
I'm not sure. the speedo was changed out at about 2k. The last
owner said it had about 8 k on it total. The clutch don't catch
until it's about 3/4 out. It don't slip at all, just a little touchy.
I really don't know much about this bikes history. I can tell you i got
a real good deal on it. Right time and place kind of thing. I do think
from looking at all the rubber,fittings and just the overall looks of this
bike it's mostly all original. Thanks for all the feedback, i really do
appreciate it. This forum saved me time and money the firs day i
became a member.

In the morning when bike has sat over night. Pump clutch a few times. Now one hand on the bar and grab the black outer part of the clutch cable and pull. The shoulder of the cable should come out of the housing no more then a 1/8 of a inch.
You can only adjust clutch when bike is stone cold.
If this guy had bike serviced by dealer there computer could tell you all that they know.

Do a search here and maybe there is a manual you can down load to your computer.

Looks like you just need to adjust the clutch cable that's all. I don't own a V92 so I can't help you with the adjustment but if you search the forum I'm sure you can find the answer or one the guys will chime in with the answer. cheers

Clutch

Adjusted the clutch today and went a 40 mile ride and the clutch
worked great. Thanks for tip VisionJohnny. Have another question.
Do you have to take off the fender to pull the passenger seat off.
and after searching it looks like the bikes model number is within the
vin number. so my model number is CB15D The D stands for standard
Cruiser.

No you don't. release and remove the driver seat, Remove the two bolts at the lead end of the fender (I think they are 6mm and they go through the bushings in the plastic piece), rock and slide the whole rear seat with the plastic tongue forward and off, then remove the plastic mount left on the fender. More than likely you will have an indentation from the plastic mount piece, and you will have 3 holes in the top of the fender, plug and enjoy!

On a '99, you'll probably end up taking off the rear fender to get to the screws holding the passenger seat on... (At least, I did.) There are three of them, bolting the pad to the fender from underneath.

If you have a small enough hand, you may be able to reach up under the fender from the front to get to the bolts - however, it's likely that they have seized, due to all the stuff that gets thrown onto the inside of the fender. I was able to get a wrench on them, but didn't have enough leverage to break them loose.

Look at a '99 as sort of a Beta release; Victory made quite a few small but significant changes to subsequent V92 models - seat mounts, fuel lines, charging system, rear shock, etc. all differ between the '99 and later years. Of course, that's part of what gives the old V92 bikes their character!
