Default Who wants to try it first...

Or does anyone have the means to find out if the shift pedal bushing, spring washer and maybe the shim from an Indian Chief will fit...or be made to work on the Cross Country shift pedal replacing those wimpy two piece plastic pivot bushings. First I'd want to know if the bushing is brass/bronze or plastic. I'd like to know what the ID and OD of the Indians one piece bushing is, as well as the ID and OD of the spring washer. If the spring washer fits the special shouldered XC pivot bolt that alone might make a noticeable difference...but that bushing might be nice if it works. Not sure what to make of the dimensions for that shim.

I did the WD brass bushings . 30.00 and my pedals are perfect , 0 slop . The factory Vic bushings are plastic crap.

I did the WD bushings, but I had to spend quite a while fitting them. I was kinda disappointed. Better, but they really should be plug and play.

To what parts are you referring: shifter?

Yeah. My WD bushings fit great on the shifter side. Not so much on the brake side. Not sure it was the bushings fault or the shaft on the bike.

I agree. Easy fix that worked perfectly.

I've herad this before. Thankfully, I did not feel I needed them on the brake side, but it fixed my shifter side slop.

I've heard they need some modification to fit properly. That's why I was looking at the Indian shift lever bushing.

I would expect that, if you check the Victory part numbers for the brake pedal and shift lever bushings they are different part numbers, that's why I has reservations about the Witchdoctors bushing kit. The kit doesn't differentiate between the brake or shifter, just a package of four of the same bushings...kinda one size fits all?? Before you installed them did you measure them to verify all four were the same size?

If the Indian spring washer by itself fits the Victory pivot bolt and corrects the shift lever slop then that would qualify for the easiest and least expensive fix...note the spring washer #9 in the parts fiche only cost $2.69 for ten of them. I'm not sure you fix ten bikes for less than that...lol.


I'm looking at parts 2 ~ 3 and 9 below

My bushing install took some light filing with a flat file , and some light sanding of the brake side pivot bolt . I used some Loctite sleeve retainer to secure the bushings to the pedals so the bushings do what they are supposed too and not rotate inside the pedals instead , wearing out the pedals prematurely . I am super pleased how they came out . WD should mention , it is more laborious then he leads on .
