Default this is what i dont like about my victory

dont get me wrong i love my victory, if i didnt i wouldnt have bought a second one. however i have found it difficult to find products, or information about them. i understand that is to be expected and im not overly upset, just wanted to vent. i have been tryin to decide on a stage 1 map, ness tuner, vfc3, or pcv for my 2010 cross roads. ive been spending so much time online my wife says im addicted to the internet yet still havent found hardly anything to help steer me in a direction. maybe the rain will stop and i will just ride it and quit thinking about what i want to do to it....

It's going to keep raining and you'll spend more time reading subjective posts regarding parts and their perceived effects. To pass the time can I interest you in a discussion regarding oil and oil filters?

Default Just my opinion

The Vicks are so good from the factory that not much else needs to be done, that's why custom parts are hard to find. Performance wise, unless your going to drag race it the stage one kit is about all you need!

You aren't looking in the right places.

I'm sure forum rules do not allow me to post up links to places that do not sponsor, so I'll just toss the links in a PM to you.

One of the reasons I wanted a Vic, was that I didn't have to pour money into it with aftermarket stuff in order to get it running fast enough. It was a big selling point for me.

The fact that accessories are not widely available can be countered with spending some time in the garage and making stuff yourself. Why would you want to customize it with the stuff everybody else is using anyway? Be original. If you want more power, look at Lloydz cams - other members who went that route reported back extremely satisfied.

Keep in mind, some folks like me are happy to ride a stock bike, and because I didn't have to save money for upgrades, I was able to buy more bike.

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

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Well, you don't list the mods you want to do or the model and year of bike you have so it's kinda hard to help.

Just guessing, but could it be that the Cross Roads is a fairly new model? I have an 09' Jackpot and there are tons of things that I dream of doing to it. I have found pretty much everything I have wanted; due in part to the helpful bunch here on the forums. The only issue I have is trying to convince my woman that I need this little piece of chrome that costs $150

I will post info when I get the Octane pipes, VFC III, and S&S intake on for everyone as a comparison. I agree the aftermarket has not caught on (with a couple of exceptions ie Loydz, conquest, etc), but I see that as an opportunity for people to start putting parts out. There is a market there.
