...Polaris has also recalled 1,688 Victory motorcycles. The accessory backrest support can separate from 2006-11 Jackpots with backrests and 2004-11 Kingpins with double backrests, possibly causing the passenger to be injured or fall from the bike. Victory is notifying owners, and dealers are expected to begin replacing the seats on or before Aug. 30...
Other sources note that it is part number 2876641-01 and 2875961-01.
I assume this recall applies to anyone who bought this as an accessory. I can't remember these ever being fitted from the factory.
Of course, I have one- but have not had any issues like other folks.
Is this the backrest that is part of the seat, or is it the removable style?
It is removable- but not a lock-n-ride. You have to take the back four bolts off the passenger portion of the seat to get at the small bolt that holds the passenger backrest on (directly under the seat).
The driver's backrest that came with these was quick detach.
One article said late August for dealer contacting...
I'm interested as well ... began to watch the members of this a few years back, now I'm connected. I really dig most of the bands u listed, but on an irrational principle of posters just to show I was ... therefore, Gogol bordello is fascinating to me.
Can a picture of the backrests that are recalled be posted as I have checked the parts and all that comes up is the part and price no picture as I have a jackpot that with a backrest that came with the bike, I don't use it right now.
Ok Guys and Gals here is the straight scoop. I called Victory today about the seat recall. They told me "Yes there is a recall but we haven't sent it out yet" They said " the dealers will get a notice first and then I would be notified" Well they must work fast because when I got home today there was a safety Recall Notice in my mail box.It is Recall Campaign: 11V-346. The seats that are effected are The Jackpot Touring Seat with Backrest PN: 2875961-01 and the Kingpin Leather Touring Seat with Backrest PN: 2876641-01. The recall notice goes on to explain the problem and says that you should not ride with this seat .It says that Your Authorized Victory Dealer should start receiving the parts to make the repair AFTER 11/01/2011. They go on to tell you to contact your dealer after that date. I will be doing so. If you have any questions feel free to contact me
