    While trying to fix my Downshifting Problem with my 2006 Victory Vegas Jackpot Premium. The Detent Spring fell threw the hole into bottom of my engine case / oil pan. I've been trying for days to fish it out with bent wire and anything else I can think of but it's still in there somewhere. So my question is. Can I just leave it in there and Run my Bike without it moving up into my engine and ruining it ?

    Have you a magnetic oil plug? It just might be hung up there if you do. I wouldnt crank the engine. But Ive never gambled with any luck.

    Flexible magnetic tool should work. You might be able to borrow an Endiscope from AutoZone or ..?
    I love having one. Pretty cheap to purchase and definitely something you'll like having for many problems.

    It's gotta come out. Keep fishing. You might drain the oil and lay the bike on the left side and fish through the drain hole.

    The Detent Spring isn't magnetic. So a magnet won't work. Oil is drained out. Have used a little camera thingy with a light to try and see the spring but had no luck. Tried fishing it out again this afternoon but never even felt it.
    Asked a Victory Motorcycle Mechanic about it and he didn't advise running the Bike with the Spring in oil pan but really didn't think it could do any damage because the Spring should just be sitting in the bottom of the oil pan. Not floating.....?

    Call Rylan. He’ll know a hell of a lot more than the guy you spoke with.

    My Bike is all back together but stock. Only thing I did was put crush washer on primary end of Shift Ratchet shaft. Test rode it yesterday afternoon, Hard ! For 2 hours and no Downshifting problems at all. I think it's the best it's ever shifted.
    Thanks to Everyone for your inputs and advise.

    Yes. The new "Factory Pro" Detent Spring is still swimming in bottom engine case.
    Rode it late this morning and DOWNSHIFTING problem started happening again. Adjusted clutch cable and rode it again in the afternoon and Downshifting SUCKED ! So just putting a washer on shift Ratchet didn't fix my problem. It Might have worked if I could have used the Factory pro Detent Spring but thats the one swimming around the bottom of my engine.
    My Next step is to Pull it apart again and Try to get Detent spring out so I can use it. Or re-order another Factory Pro Detent Spring and maybe the Shift Ratchet ect. and star and then install the Barnett Scorpion clutch that I already bought and hope it works.

    2008 and newer. The shifter shaft part was updated to a new part that doesnt need a oil washer! Fishes updated around jan 18. So I would get that at Don Woods. I would buy a better scope. if its in there you will find it ...get someone else to help you with the search. if you cant find with this its not in there. You have a 06
