Default Stupid Passenger Hand Grip Question

Bought a used pair off this site. Very happy with the whole transaction, BTW. Me and another Victory buddy worked on our bikes today and I installed them. Then noticed a machine drilled hole on the front end of the right grip, obviously came that way from the factory. Neither one of us can figure out what it's for (if the hole was on both sides I would figure a tie down point maybe). I know someone here knows. Thanks in advance. Glenn

Thanks for asking the question. I also have the passenger grab handles on my CCT and have wondered what that threaded hole was for as well. I was very impressed with these parts as they look strong enough to lift the entire bike with. The thickness of the brackets is amazing.

All the best,

I'm not sure if it's a M10 1.25 pitch thread. If so, the RAM ball mount would screw in their and it cold indeed hold a beverage. If so, that would be some seriously forward thinking engineering.

All the best,

Ohh. I see. You mean a stupid question about hand grips.

I thought you meant that you were toting around a moron that didn't know enough to hold on. I was going to refer you to my brother in law.

Well, more than a year has gone by since I asked that question, too; see this thread: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=11314 .

No one knew then, and no one seems to know now. (Or if someone does know, he or she is keeping it to themselves.)

Cheers,

Maybe it's in an owners manual somewhere?

I am trying to imagine this hole in the handle, but my imagination is tired. Can someone post a pic?

Yeah, I also got excited when I saw the "stupid passenger..." thread, but what a let down!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
