    2014 Victory Cross Country Tour
    Hey everyone,

    First post and its a big one. Ive been running a 2014 victory cross country. to date ive done a PC5, timing wheel, dino, lloydz cams and v&h slipons. recently i had my mechanic wire in a victory oem tour pack. the connectors on the tourpack didnt line up on the bike side quick connect so he had to pull pins and do a aftermarket connector. also had ape hangers installed at tha time as well. low and behold the rear cylinder has stopped firing. it gets fuel but no spark. front cylinder is fine. Me and my mechanic are running out of options...looking for some advice. i have suggested removing the pc5 to see how it runs. or getting a new ecm. Any suggestions would be helpful. Victorys are amazing bikes. i have taken mine all across the eastern seaboard and wouldnt trade it for any other. Please post anything you thinkmay be of value. Cheers

    Re trace your steps. Check the FI connector at the top of the rear cylinder. Spark plug wire ? look at the coil connection ? Doubtful you need a new PC5.

    Thank you, my buddy thinks we may have back charged one of the pins on the quick connector when we were testing to figure out which pin did what? does anyone know what pins are in that harnes for the trunk that comes off the left side in fron of the left saddle bag? I will try the suggested items though thank you

    @BBob maintains a site with the service manuals. You'll find everything you need there. The link is in his signature but for simplicity here you go:

    And the "mechanic" shrugged his shoulders and went home? Strike him from even washing the bike. How wiring a high mount brake lamp and speakers can kill spark to the rear cylinder is a head scratcher. I wish you well.

    Ended up replacing the pc5. That did. It you can also test the pc5 by disconnecting the power to it and replugging in the stock ignition coil wires. Hope this helps

    I'm surprised you didn't dump the PC-V and go with a Maximus tune. It truly is a better all around tune and you don't have approximately 12 new electrical points of failure wired in to your bike.

    No reason to dump a pcv it's a very good working unit. It is rare they go bad.,

    Just curious. You replaced the PC5 and problem solved. Who help you with a canned tune and a new unit ? Info like this will helpful if it happens to someone else.

    I'm going to have to disagree. It's simply a matter of time before it will give you issues. It took mine about 70,000 miles and 4.5 years.

    I
    13 bikes in my lifetime.10 had a power commander of some type. Never an issue.

    3 Victory's again not an issue. It's the very rare issue that's makes it seem that the sky is falling .
