Default Dual Tach/Speedo for Gunner

I am about to take delivery of a 2016 Gunner, after the dealer changes some things on it.

One of the things I want is the dual tach/speedo like the one on the Hammer S.

The Victory accessories catalog says it will fit the 2015 Gunner, but not the 2016 Gunner. We're baffled (both the dealer and I)...

Does anyone have any idea why it wouldn't work on the 2016??

This is what I'm talking about:

am guessing your dealer looked it up on there computer and Vic hasn't updated their accessory parts. If you had a smart dealer or salesman he would of called Vic or looked up the triple tree to see if they change it. Am guessing its the same triple tree for the last five years so that wouldn't by why. It might be that there is no wires for the tach but then the jackpot or vegas couldn't have a tach.
Bottom line bad salesmen

The dealer went ahead and ordered the kit. We're going to try it anyway. I don't blame him - I'm probably the first guy to ask that question... It's a small shop, and they're great guys, knowledgeable motorcyclists.

The Gunner was parked next to a Hammer, and we measured the bolt pattern - it's exactly the same. So, you are right, it might be the wiring. The Gunner actually does have a digital tach, so there is rpm info going to it.

We just couldn't figure out why the 2015 and the 2016 are different.

Full disclosure: I'm an old guy, 58 years old, been riding for 45 years, and I HATE digital anything! I want a round tach with a needle!! ;-)

it should work. The gunner uses the same wire harness as vegas highball and jackpot. The triple trees are the same from 2012 and on.

yea this is the same tach I've got on my 2015 Vegas and when I was looking at the Gunner it would have been the same. You should be fine.

I was wrong about the accessories catalog - it does list the 2016 Gunner. Part number 2878210...

It's just the website that is wrong.

I rode it for 30 minutes yesterday. They didn't even send a guy to ride with me.

I'm here to tell you, that thing is a torque monster! I can't wait to take it home. In addition to the tach, I'm having the foot controls extended by 2" forward. Damn legs are too long, and knees too stiff. I think 2" will be enough, but I found a 4" extension kit for the Gunner from another company if 2" isn't enough.

It's hell to be tall, and love motorcycles at the same time.... It limits you.

I am a bit shorter than you, 5'7". A lot of bikes out there are just to tall for me. I like the Gunner also, but I have a CrossRoads. My bike now has 41,000 miles. Put the analog tach on mine, had the dealer install it before I picked it up. Got to have analog tach, digital is worthless, can not read it going down the road. Good bikes. Enjoy the new ride.
