Lightbulb Circlip Failure Poll

To head off the $2.00 Cir-clip problem circling at the moment. Those that have had this issue please state the Victory Year and model and why you surmise it happened. That will give us at least a reading on how large or small this issue that has come to the forefront really is and those of us can make a Risk Assessment and manage it accordingly.

You may be better off having a look at Facebook or the other forum for the information you seek. Just from reading the thread I posted about this issue it seems more people at those other two venues are familiar with the circlip issue.

All the best,

What is the circlip issue you are referring to. Can you go into some more detail? Maybe some pictures. I recently had a clip come off the clutch lever micro-switch for instance, I do not believe this is what you are referring to. Pictures do help for us rocket scientist, ha, ha. If it is a safety issue it would be great to clarify, may save a life or two. Thanks.

Mags, I don't think it is working correctly. Probably because of the nut behind the handlebars who tried to submit it. Thanks anyway.

What Models and What years are affected? There has to be a Victory tech pub or service bulletin targeting which bikes can have this problem.

I went and looked at all the Vic recalls on the Polaris website. Found nothing. Found some TSBs but again nothing that seemed to be this. There's one about some shifter detente not providing clearance and jumping out of gear or locking but doesnt seem to be the same thing

Tech Publications are not normally public information. They are made for technicians and dealers only.
