F0000000000K Victory! OEM center stand sucks!!!!
Okay, I defended it. I liked it, originally. Now I fargin' hate it. It is the worst piece of engineering crap and Victory should recall every last bike with one and anyone who has bought the part and installed it and start again!
It's been a few months that I've had it on. I kept air pressure in the rear shock to keep the stand from dragging around lefthand corners. A few days ago I noticed that the leg of the stand had dented the corner of my exhaust shield elbow. Clearly, it had scraped and dented around a sharp lefthand corner. I saw the dent and I started seeing red... Breathe... Relax... I'm going to black them out - I can have the dent removed. Fill the shocks with more air... Lessons learned. Relax.
Today, I'm at a store. Flat surface. There's a curb to the right. I'm away from everyone. It's a nice day. No wind. I go into the store, the bike is fine. I return from the store. The bike is on its right side, against the curb. This isn't a smooth concrete curb. There's a buckle in it and the bike landed on the exposed buckle, right on the saddle bag. F00000000000000000K! Cracked the bag!
I've ordered a center stand from Buy Witchdoctors and taking this piece of shit off. I can't believe how badly designed this thing is!!!!
