Default Victory Vinyl Forged Bar Covers

As has been posted a few times, the photos and instructions that come with the Victory vinyl forged bar closeouts are worse than terrible. How Polaris can allow something so simple to be done so poorly is worrisome. This certainly isn't the only accessory I bought that had embarrassingly poor instructions. It was easier to squint a bit at the last picture and figure the installation out for myself. Getting the right side on was OK but I then had a difficult time getting the left side on. I wouldn't want to have to install these in a hurry or in a cold/windy parking lot. I'm glad I only paid $20 for them new in their original package. At this point, I don't see myself using them much, if at all.

Does anyone have a better description, video or photos of how best to install them? They're Victory item number: 2878108 seen here: https://www.amazon.com/Victory-Forge.../dp/B01CRCPM2E

Thank You,

All the best,

Mark

I use mine all the time in the winter. They are great. Keeps my legs and feet warm and dry. The top part of the bar there is a moumt for the plastic top cover near the gas tank. You have to push the closeout top mounting strap under the plastic cover and over the metal bar. You push it through on the outside of the mount. It's a little tight but it will go. That's the hardest part. After you have done it a few times, it's easy. The first time I mount them each season I have to think about it. But after that first time it just takes a few minutes.

Totaled: 2003 TC, But it's still on the road.

This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

LOOK at it and you will see how to mount them.
