Well, I don't have a bike that is down, otherwise I would, but I would start with e-mails to corporate. Then messages on their Facebook page. Maybe start on on-line petition. A snail mail to any and all departments of corporate. Do that daily for a month or so and something WILL eventually happen (maybe a restraining order, LOL). Like I said, squeaky wheel. Be creative and maybe someone at Victory will get the message "maybe we should make common wear parts available for 5 year old bikes!"
