I've been back and forth on cams and tonight I decided to go for it. I know at this point it's lame but putting $$ into a dead brand was the last thing I wanted to do but maybe the pain of the kick right square in the nuts is easing or I just realize my bike basically has no value so I might as well make the best of it. Whatever the reason I have Lloydz HOH-VM1-DR cams on the way. By the time they get here I'll be leaving for a much needed vacation so when I get back I'll start tearing the bike down.
Since Polaris slammed the door and I bought the VStrom I really never ride the Vic anymore. I've put 16,000 miles on the Vstrom in the last year and maybe 4000 on the Vic. I'm hoping digging into it will bring back the love I've lost for my Cross Country, it's a fantastic bike and I really don't like the attitude I have towards it. I'm not a fan a betrayal, just doesn't sit well with me.
Anyone interested in cams I bought them here CLICK
$62 under list.
I have the opposite problem.
Of my 5 street bikes, I spend over 50% of my rides on my XC, and if I need to take enough with me, I put the trunk on.
06 KP 8ball runs brilliantly, and I love to ride it, but isn't as handy for computer, etc.
I have cams & high compression pistons on a shelf for it, but we didn't get enough winter to get them installed.
I may have to get XC bag mounts made for the kingpin so the XC can get torn down!
I picked up an 09 KP for CHEAP to hotrod (similar to Conquest Customs setup).
I couldn't care less what resale value is.
They work better & look cooler than anything similar.
I'm pretty happy to collect parts & keep riding these killer bikes!
