Default New Victory, Couple of ?'s

Hey everyone, Im new to the victory family and just purchased an 07 8ball. Just a couple of questions about this bike. It seems to have a pretty significant clutch noise. At first it seemed like an engine knock, but after checking it out, we realized it was coming from the clutch side. The bike only having 3500 miles, I was thinking that this may be normal? The previous owner said it always sounded like that. When you pull in the clutch most of the noise goes away. Any input?

The other question I have is, I am a 5-3 female and have a little trouble reaching the shifter and the brake comfortably. I have looked online and havnt been able to pinpoint any kits that move the controls back some.

I really love my bike, and as a former harley rider am very impressed with what I have experienced thus far! Thanks in advance for your comments

The clutch noise or the noise coming from the primary is pretty much normal. There are 3 gears in there no chain so what you hear is the gears meshing together. If you think its not normal swing by a dealer and ask him to listen to it.

If you have the owners manual in there it will tell you how to shorten the linkage and if not ask the dealer how to when your there. If not sign up here and download it.

I don't know if there was any recalls for your bike but you can ask the dealer that too.

I looked over the owners manual, and it did say about adjusting the shifter for the size of your foot, but I was more looking to see if there was a relocation kit for the break and shifter controls. I need them a few inches back (mid controls) for my comfort and safety.

Did you buy from POG? If not, make a run up there and check them out. Good place I hear.

the only way to quiet down the clutch noise
is to get louder pipes or possibly go with a full
synthetic oil. i see you said the bike only has
3700 miles on it so it probably has the stock
brake pads,if so keep a close eye on the rear pads
they wear out really fast for some reason.
these bikes make alot of mechanical noise
but just think of it as "industrial strength"
they engines are built like tanks.
