Ok, anyone ever try to run an electric drill that is metal bodied and is ice cold. If so, you know that ugly screeching/vibration sound it makes when it is cold. Well, that sound is coming from my V92C on deceleration in this weeks 50* weather. Ever heard of this anyone?

Kinda sounds like a starter gear has a bad bearing.

Funny thing about Vic's is the starter gear is always engaged unlike a car or most other bikes I know of. It's basically a ratchet type thing that engages when the starter spins but just spins after the motor is started.

This why a lot, if not all, Vic's have that funny sound after turning the bike off sometimes. Not all the time; just sometimes. It's the motor turning the stater after it stops and turns backwards sometimes.

It's normal for Vic's until the bearing goes bad.

Pull the starter and check it out.

Thanks for the reply Bbob , I was hoping it wasn't the tranny that these bikes are known for . I will have that starter checked out when I get a minute. Have you ever heard an old drill do that when it is cold? Kinda weird sounding .
Didn't find anyone with tranny issues describe this sound so I am hoping it isn't that. Thanks again

Not sure if the Cush drive completely solved the trans issues or not . Any one know the answer or have problems with an 01 tranny? There are lots of threads on this but can't find anyone saying their 01 failed.

Actually from Craigslist locally , paid $4150 for it . Two new tires and the bags went with it.
It has been setting for a while , gas is stale so I got sea foam for in that . Hopefully just running a couple tanks and it will clear it up some

Look up in your drive pulley for red dust in the housing. If even a small amount and you have not pulled the cover and verified the torque on the drive nut that may be your problem. First thing I thought of when you said screech and vibe.

Also, the 02s were first tranny upgrade but you would have probs with 2nd 3rd if I'm not mistaken. 03 came the freedom V92 update powerplant and tranny. I really hadn't heard a lot of 01 tranny's bad but I'm still fairly new. I have heard a lot more not having issues.

If u need help checking the pulley PM me
