Mine got better after the first service at 500 miles. It got better again when I had a need to change the oil (don't ask) about a hundred miles later and I switched over to Amsoil. It seems to soften up over time and now with 1600 on the bike it's not near as bad as it was in the beginning.

With 21,000 I don't know if it is still noisy or not, but I don't notice anymore.

Hardly motorcycles have had their share of noise issues with their trans... they however can be quieted down considerably by using gear lube... a choice that the Victories do not have.

Victory trans are especially noisy when they are being shifted at to low rpm's... they are designed to be shifted and run at higher rpm's... try it out. They can't be lugged out at low rpm's... the monkey gets angry.

Mine has over 5k on it, and it's the same as when I got it. Just changed the oil and it does shift a little better.

That being said, I rode a 2011 Electra Glide with similar mileage two weekends ago, and that thing shifted 100 time better than my CR.

I don't know which oil works the creamiest in the Vic., But I would think a good 20W50 semi-synthetic or a conventional oil would provide the most cushion. I however tried royal purple in mine after the 500 mi break-in and shifting has improved quit a bit.

Run it up around 3500 and then shift. Its a huge difference if your short shifting and lugging it they are really noisey. 1st to 2nd on mine is fine when i shift below 3500 but after that its much smoother in the 3000-3500 range. Also im running amsoil and seems to help alot. Also make sure your clutch is adjusted right and has the freeplay it needs or once it heats up the cable can be tight enough to cause rough shifting as well.

Sort of like the trans from the muscle cars. I had a 67 Camaro SS with a Rock Crusher trans in it. Now that was a noise maker. Shift it like it was meant to be ridden and no worries.

You can have quiet and it breaks or louder and it lasts forever. I prefer louder and lasts forever.

I am running amsoil and I agree with the higher RPM shifting. It is very quiet once you get going. But low speed you get a nice audible "Clack". I engauge at a red light and look around to see if anyone is looking at me.
I just have to get used to it.
