There is this bike TVS Victor-GL, probably worst bike ever made.
I don't know what mess has been created by TVS engineers, sometime i feel cycle is better than this bike.
I don't know what is the problem it gives me lot of trouble in starting, even if it starts sometime it stops while running, then it will take another half hour to start again.
If i am going somewhere then i need to make sure that i don't stay in between otherwise it is almost sure then i need to kick it for another half hour.
and this is even when i keeps my worst bike in good condition, three days back only it got serviced but its problem of starting, stopping in between remains the same.
Does anybody have solution, please let me know, i will be really thankful of him

what you said is wholly true and the thought of starting the bike in the morning itself is repulsing. Weak legged ones cannot dream of kick starting this mess of a machine. Also its gear ratio seem to be ackward. Therse is so much resistance in the 4th gear that you tend to try to change gear upward to no avail. And the kind of jertk it gives while one tries to accelarate after a gear chage is simply annoying.
I am also useing TVS Vicotr bike from last 5 years and I hv also same prbolem facing for this bike... I am also not happy with victor GL... I am regulary serviceing the bike after that this bike is not run properly on road... after 50 km per hrs this bike is noking and all parts are vaibriting...
Well. might i am some lucky in this case. I have Victor GL since 2003. i am quite happy with this machine. Ya some time trouble is there but off course this need service too. After service again it ready to vroooooooom.
I agree for hard kick but this bike gives facility to start in gear that give comfort in traffic. u do not need to come in neutral gear. To start the bike just put your show on kick and push completely in once. I rarely kicked 2-3 times, it starts in first kick mostly.
I love the comfort of seating. I run this bike upto 500 kilometers without tires, from Delhi to Bikaner 2 years back with 2-3 stops for tea break only. Normal speed 60-70 kmph. This bike gave me average of 65 km on highway.
I can't run my hero Honda glamer more than 100 km. I need to sit on pillow after riding this bike. but victor GL has a great comfort.
Might be if u have starting problem due to no proper servicing. I m not sure.
i am also having the Victor GL 2004 model. before one year its codition is ok. but when i service this bike in coimbatore, i hang with this. i am servicing once in 2 month. but now it self, it cant cure. i also changed the spark plug & assembly, engine oil, and spend up to Rs 7000. but no result. but still the mechanic having some idea to solve it. how?????? that is the secret!!!
I jensonkuruviilla,renewal the bike insurance on 23/02/2010.Covernoteno4.0897456 Agent code 17000061.Many times contact agent no answer and cover note copy fax to mr.mahesh this no 01123413527.Now this time note receive my insurance original paper .cover note date is alredy expired.what can i do.please action immediately,
I m having TVS victor since 2002, from past one year i met lot of trouble due to mis firing ( especially from road side dogs) I have given for service 2 times in authorized service centre first timethey changed, the starting coil, regulator rectifier, again the same problem ame, with in 6 month, again same problem and starting trouble, this time they are changed, spark plug, starting colil, CDI unit, again same trouble, I dnow know what is the exact problem, is, i m using quality oil, and all the oil seals are checked, tvs victor totally becomes devil, .
I am also facing the same bullshit starting trouble with TVS victor GL.Spent thousands on servicing, changed mechanics, done overhauling but to no use.During those starting trouble times I feel like throwing this shit in next dustbin. And now I am going to change this bike [resale value :( 6000 rs only ].
My advice - Don't ever think of buying this bike.
I have TVS victor GL bike for the past 8 ( 2003) years I whole heartedly agree with you, starting in the morning is difficult, also lot of vibration when you cruise above 50 km / hr. Poor desisgn of the engine and its dynamics. The wheel base is small and stability of the bike is at stake when you encounter a sharp bend.Service centres pay least attention to the problems They are interested only in changing the oil and regular service they dont know to rectify the defects. Indeed a poor piece from the house of TVS.
I completely agree with those who are against TVS. Yes, TVS products are no match with Hero Honda and Bajaj. I too have a TVS Victor, faced starting problem by several kickings in morning, use to sweat like hell. One day I thought of experimenting myself about the starting problem. and I figured out. the resolution was " FULL KICK". Take the kick lever out, place your strong leg on it and give a full kick without accelerator. I mean full kick till the end. It should start. But ofcourse choke should be on.
The TVS Victor is one of the worst bike in the world. It needs powerful kick to start ! it stops while running, misfiring, low milege . How it is passed after Inspection from the factor qulaity control ? Will the amnufactureer look in to this and get returned from all clients who had purchased this and replace with other bike ? Especially the service from Praba TVS service station at Chennai Ashoknagar is one of the worst service where I have expereiced every time I take delivery ! Who are the best Service in Chennai for TVS Victor bike ? Can sombody reply. How do TVS allott a bad srvice station like TVS Praba at Ashoknagar. What isthe greivance email and mobile no ?
