Default Cross Road parts availability

Rode my bike up to a local bike hangout Sunday evening and as usual had people wondering what kind of bike I was on, even two XC guys had never seen a XR. This got me wondering about future part availability for those few XR specific optional and standard parts. Got on Victory homepage and saw they were selling XR windshields for half off but most other parts were still on there. Makes me wonder if I should buy an extra of everything I have just in case (short windshield, heated grips, tach bracket, etc.) The windshield is the biggest worry but I think Cee Baileys still makes them for the XR.

There are a few places that offer windshields. I'm currently looking for a different one myself. The mounting bracket would probably be my biggest concern going forward but thinking about it, if something happens that takes out the shield and bracket the bike would have probably taken a good hit and be toast.

There are few parts that are not also on Cross bikes. If you want to add a tach - do it now they are not going to be available/selling out now. I go a Cee Bailey XL wind shield and like it alot. It created the wind protection I wanted. You have to use the hard ware from the OEM shield. Pretty much everything else is the same on Xr and Xc bikes so parts should not be a problem...

I think I have all the extras that were XR specific, I just hope Cee Bailey will continue to offer a XR windshield down the road. I am happy with my OEM shorty but crap happens and if I would need to replace it then I may be out of luck in the future. When I got my XR it was what I wanting at the time but figured I would be looking for something different at about the 5 year mark. I don't think that is going to happen, really love my XR and now plan to keep it for a very long time. I don't put as many miles as some on here (10k in 3.5 years) but I do ride it at least once a week unless the roads are covered in snow. I also ride no matter the weather and all that moisture is starting to show in the form of rusted nuts and bolts around the exhaust and other in between places.

7jrock makes a nice WS for our XRs.
Very happy with mine!
I even had a Gold wing vent installed in my custom 7jrock WS.

when you see parts on close out you best buy NOW. Cause they will not replace them with a up grade design for the most part

Being very pleased with my XR, I also plan to keep it a long time. But should something happen that it needs replacing, the Indian Springfield is my number one candidate to fill its spot in my garage. Sorry Victory, ya snooze, ya loose.

I would probably lean towards the Indian myself but the trouble I have is that I am long legged (34" inseam) and the Indians are just too cramped for me. The biggest selling point for me on the Cross bikes was the size and leg room. I test drove everything Indian offers and they felt just like a HD in how I fit on them, too small. I actually enjoyed the Scout though, it had peg extensions on it.

99% sure a Springfield will be my next bike in a couple of years.

Obviously they didn't sell that well but it does seem odd to drop the XR so quickly, particularly when they still essentially make the same bike with the XC. Not everyone wants a screen/fairing.
