Default Help us help you

Help us help you. When does it vibrate?

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

Agreed. What gear? What speed? Ever owned a V-Twin before?

You don't KNOW vibration. LOL

Victory has vibe reduction down to a science. Go ride a Harley....

But if it's still too much for you, get ISO grips and ISO pegs.

Is it very noticeable compared to your previous XC or just a bit more? Once the break-in period ends, the bike gets a bit smoother, and the move from your previous XC the current might have brought that difference to your attention.

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

Yesterday I rode the 2011 Vegas 8 ball with 1500 miles on (Vic demo bike) and it vibrated more then my 03 92ci Vegas so I dunno maybe it's the newer bikes.

Ever ride a Kawi? My old Meanie looked like a couple of paint shakers at idle, but ANY throttle and she was silky smooth!

Does it only happen under acceleration? Or also while at a set speed? The way the bike is put together is pretty different than most bikes being the engine is actually a part of the frame. As such, you'll feel vibrations under acceleration, but should smooth out at speed.

Go to the dealer and have him ride it. You might need your wheel rebalanced.
Maybe there is more to it then you think.
I'm sure a dealer will test ride it for free

Vibrates in all gears at 2000+ RPM; does it vibrate in neutral at the same RPMS?

Does the vibration increase/decrease while moving at 2000+ RPM with the clutch pulled in?

Does it vibrate more/less during acceleration or does it vibrate the same while cruising as it does while accelerating?
