Questions, Comments, Concerns, Accessories
Got all the accessories installed on my 2013 XCT. First, dealer could not install the Cross Country Flip Windshield (part # 2827174, pg. 15, 2013 accessories catalog). Something about that windshield wouldn't fit the support bracket. No problem, I like the stock windshield. So I ordered the Blade Windshield (#2879238) for when I take the trunk off and ride solo. Next, Kicker Speakers x4. Not a,"significant upgrade", as stated in the Victory catalog. Maybe a little better than stock but not $400 worth. Next, 2" Pullback Handle Bars. Absolutely worth $300. I raised them to the high position in the trees, riding with arms slightly bent and at chest level. Next, Rider Backrest. Gotta have it. I have metal parts that are getting rusty. Next, Passenger Arm Rest. If Mama ain't happy, nobody's happy*. She loves em. Next, Stage 1 Exhaust. Some love em, some hate em. I love em. They're not obnoxious, can hear the stereo, great rumble, passenger likes them (*reference text above). Next, Sena SM10 Bluetooth. Will let you know. I may need tech support, hope it's not Sam in India. And lastly, Victory HID. I think I got ripped off. Beam is a little brighter and wider, but I don't think it's worth $500 dollars. Victory will pay for this one.
Thanks for reading, it's too cold to ride, so I write. Any reply will be appreciated.
P.S. The dealer gave me all the take off parts, speakers x4, bars, headlight assembly, and mufflers. Anyone have any suggestion as to what to do with stock mufflers? Anyone try to knock the baffles out of stock mufflers? I might sell these original slightly used parts. If anyone is interested message me.
