Default When I Bought IT I Swore I Wouldn't Change Anything

Boy those CAM adjuster covers sure look cheap. Since I wear a full face helmet I don't like looking through the windshield, hello JUROCK. Then it was well I will just get a few Comfort items. I needed a backrest, and my wife said she needed something to hold onto besides my fat so some grab rails would be nice. Well I need free shipping so I guess the brake pedal could use an upgrade so my not add one. Next came boy that rear cylinder gets hot, well off to AZ leather. Man I really like the LED headlight. The stereo can use an upgrade add some Polk DB 521's. Well Witchdoctor's has some items on clearance so let me take a look at that and as long as I am at it those radio bezels sure look better than stock ok so I want those and look I can make an offer on a master cylinder cover because it will cover the cheap looking plastic master cylinder and I will also have a nice contrast cut cap, only another 30.00. Wait those painted contrast cut speaker grills are on sale and will really dress up my dash as long as they are on sale. Oh look the Kuryakyn spark plug filler will finish off the look of the engine and boy that key side cheese wedge looks naked. I need a mount for my phone and I would love to be able to play Pandora overt the radio. The rear cylinder is still hot so maybe a should see if a PCV wil help, as long as I'm doing that why not add a LLoydz timing wheel everybody says they are great. Hey somebody has a set of used stage one Mufflers for sale sounds good for that price. Damn it might as well get the Llodyz air filter and get them all done at the same time while on the Dyno. Time for a bluetooth receiver and a Ram phone mount, need another few bucks might as well get the 1/4 turn throttle ring and iridium plugs as long as the gas tank is off. Well just got her back from being tuned and I notice That my brake return spring is missing, nobody has it locally so time to order that, that damn long antenna I keep running into it in my overcrowded garage, shorty antenna is a solution and that will get me free shipping.


I don't need an amp, I don't need cams I don't need to change anything else.

2016 Victory Cross Country Tour

I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

Next time you purchase new.....just know you are going do "it" ..much easier that way.
BTW: nice choice of speakers, I just added a set myself(even after I swore now that Victory is defunct that I wouldn't put another dime into the bike...but hell, they were on sale and I had Amazon points on my card...LOL)

Great thread! When I bought my CCT 46K miles ago, I planned on leaving the trunk off unless my wife was with me. I mean, it's only a few minutes to remove and install it.

I've never even attempted to remove the trunk. I simply find it that convenient. I no longer even think about removing it.

And yea, get the Lloyds cams!

All the best,

Mark

While I was changing the oil in my other bike I realized I had a few other items I forgot about, big mouth exhaust tips, a Bad Ace Billet Middle wind delflector (which I may sell not sure on it yet) and a never installed Easy Pull clutch cover I forgot I even bought.
