2003 Classic Cruiser lurches forward when letting off the throttle and back when adding throttle. The bike it self doesn't move it just throws you in that direction. Already checked belt tension and seems in specs.
...is this at a slow speed or all the time?it is more like a jerking motion, say if I let go of the throttle and the bike abruptly slows not stop and you lurch forward. That's the best I can describe it.
if you are traveling at a constant speed you can accelerate no problem, its just if you throttle down.
I'm hoping one of the Vic wrenches will post because for the past 5 years I have not been doing my own so i am a bit rusty.Yes I think you are right, someone else suggested that also. How do I check it?
So I see your new to Victory. And the Vog. Welcome!My 2013 Judge with about 21K on it, which I have owned and ridden only about three weeks was doing the same thing yesterday while I was on a little trip. I had not noticed it before but I have less than 500 miles on the bike so far. I just purchased it on E-bay and it has been a maintenance nightmare. I have been gradually catching the maintenance up on it. You know changing the oil, and cleaning the Air Filter etc. I also adjusted the drive belt deflection since it seemed to be really tight to me. The manual calls for 6 mm but that is tighter than a drum especially after riding it for an hour or so. I increased it to 9-10 mm so that might be my problem? Anyway, I have been riding a 2006 Honda VTX 1300 for about 9 years and it has a shaft drive, but it sometimes displayed the same issues with a little slack in the u-joint that showed up if I was sloppy in my shifting. butit is of course completely a different bike than the Judge so i was thinking that it was me causing the jerking sensation. Kind of like the computer was kicking in and overriding my throttle control. Maybe I have not mastered the shifting and throttle of this bike yet. I did change out the Clutch cable recently and have been adjusting it trying to get it right. Also I have one throttle cable which is just holding on by a couple of strands so I have ordered two new throttle cables to replace them. I got one of them in, but the other one will not be shipped until the 15th so I am waiting to install the new one I did receive. Maybe the throttle cables are not adjusted correctly yet. I did notice that one of the CO2 sensors wires had pulled loose and the wire was broken, so I went ahead and unplugged the other one too. Since I have done this it has idled much better. Anyway, I know what you are talking about but do not know the reason it is happening yet.
