Default Hydraulic Clutch For Cross Crounty/Tour

Want to avoid that clutch cable breaking? No more adjusting that clutch cable?

Simple solution.

You Victory dealer can order you the hydraulic clutch kit for the Victory Vegas/Jackpot. This kit fits the Cross Country and Cross Country Tour. It is an easy install that will only take about 30 to 45 minutes from start to finish.

Instead of running the hydraulic line down the right side of the frame like the clutch cable is you run the hydraulic line down the left side of the frame tucking the hydraulic line into the same harness tabs that contain the wiring harness under the fuel tank on the left side of the frame. The hydraulic line is the perfect length.

The slave cylinder fits into the same bracket that the clutch cable uses on top of the transmission.

This will also bring your left side mirror to the same height as your right side mirror.

This kit costs 399 dollars and your local Victory dealer can order it for you.

When you bleed the system you only need to let it gravity bleed for a couple of minutes, just make sure the slave cylinder is connected to the bracket and the clutch arm. Do not try to bleed it before the slave cylinder is correctly installed. This allows the air to bleed out of the system. It is very easy to do. You will use DOT 4 brake fluid.

Did you know your local dealer orders it from your favorite Vic parts store? http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/1348/vi...clutch-sc-387/

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

Did you know that Witchdoctors is ordering them straight from Polaris and they are a Pure Polaris part?

Yeah that's what I thought.

So for the same money you support your local dealer and your local economy.

Did you know local dealers have nothing in stock, and like to order the wrong parts or incomplete kits quite often? Support your local hookers for all I care.

What is the difference if I order that Pure Polaris hydraulic clutch kit and yes it comes as a pre packaged kit from Polaris, from witchdoctors or the local dealer? I pay the same price either way.

Maybe you hate supporting your local economy but I rather like to support the businesses in my home town and my state when ever possible.

By the way I love how you turned this into another witchdoctor thread. The hydraulic clutch kit he is selling is the same kit from Polaris and is a Pure Polaris part that your own dealer can get you for the same price.

No, there isn't. But a hydraulic clutch will always have a smoother feel. Cable's ok, just not as nice as the hydraulic feel.

No, I don't hate supporting the economy, and yes there are excellent Vic dealers out there too. But I do appreciate having options when it comes to making a purchase.

I couldn't help it. You've got me conditioned to associate "Victory 1" with witchdoc bashing from your previous posts.

There's probably one of these in my future if mine breaks again. Doesn't take many $100 cables and aggravation to make up the cost.

I highly recommend it. It is a Pure Polaris kit so everything fits and works great. Don't wait for your clutch cable to break go ahead and plan to get this sooner rather than later.

I installed this kit on mine the first week I had the bike. I now have over 12,000 miles on it and do not have to worry about adjusting the clutch or worry about a clutch cable breaking during a ride or at an inopportune time.

The install is simple and straight forward and worth it.

Actually there have been a few reports of people who have had their clutch cable fail and break on them.

This Pure Polaris hydraulic clutch kit eliminates the clutch cable and clutch adjustments. That in of itself should be reason enough to upgrade.
