Default Report on Kuryakyn's "Rear Transmission Center Cover" (7623, 7626)

A couple of days I got around to installing Kuryakyn's "Rear Transmission Center Cover for Victory" (black, part # 7623), which I bought last month at Americade. Here's the link to Kuryakyn's page for this product: http://www.kuryakyn.com/products/468...n-center-cover

Short Review:

Recommended.

Long Review:

This is fairly easy to install, if a bit tedious. Everything lined up as intended, no problems, and the two pieces -- with mating tabs that are screwed together in the middle -- do a good job of cleaning up the area at the bottom of and to the rear of the back cylinder.

I scanned in the instructions, and put them up as a three-page PDF document on my web site, if you want to see in detail what's involved. The link to that, along with a few more pics and some comments, are in a sub-gallery I created, here: http://www.billanddot.com/Kuryakyn-T...r-for-Victory/

I'd give this product a 7 out of 10. I'd have rated it higher but I think it's priced $20 or $30 too high, it should've included black bolts for the black version (which is the one I bought, in order to de-emphasize that area, not bring attention to it), and I was annoyed at the instructions for not stating that the two stock bolts involved require a 5mm hex key (although, in all fairness, they did have a sticker on the Saran wrap that said, "please remove protective film").

BTW, if you get a chance, look at the equivalent area on the big Indians. It's bare, plain, nothing. Polaris cleaned up its act on the Chieftain, et al., in that regard, just as they eliminated the tacked-on nature of the cruise and audio switchgear, etc., when creating the Indians. So your putting on the Kury product is a step in that direction, too.

I've only ridden on two days since then, and haven't noticed any change in terms of heat. Remember that's it way down near the base of the bike, behind that rear cylinder -- you still have the heat of the jugs, along with the exhaust pipes on the right.

Very nice! I think that really cleans up that area behind the rear jug. The next spare 100 motorcycle bucks I get is already spent, thanks a lot Buddy

Jamming: you live in the northeast? If so, have Mags buy one for you -- better deal than I got at Americade, certainly.

All: if you want to see in greater detail what this thing looks (since showing large pics is NOT one of the strengths of this forum's software):

- Click on http://www.billanddot.com/Kuryakyn-T...for-Victory/#6 and http://www.billanddot.com/Kuryakyn-T...for-Victory/#7

- Click on the icon in the upper right that looks like two super-imposed squares (and when you hover over it, it says "Open Image in New Tab or Window").

- You'll now have the full-size version of a pic; when it finishes loading, in most browsers you just click on it and it will be expanded to full size (at which point you'll have to use the scroll bars to move around the image, unless you have a very high-res monitor).

Cheers,

Just my opinion which is worth a bag of beans but I think it looks kind of Kuryakynish.

AKA; cheesy. Kury have a few good parts but for the most part they look like wannabe bling to my eye.

To each their own though. If it works for ya; more power to ya.
