Default Heat relief

I have seen a heat guard on the rear cylinder of Harley's to protect the testicles from the heat. Is there one made for the Victory?

There's a thread on here about BBob and handyhoward making their own https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=12317

But if you want to buy one then there are a couple on ebay (one or the other) or RJS Original's makes one for the Victory Cross Country. Not sure how well it will fit the V92

Bbob, long time fellow forum member makes these with his own hands, here in America, and sells them through this website: http://azleather.webs.com/apps/webstore/.

As suggested, you can always go on ebay and support someone else in China, and roll the dice on fit and quality, so I would check with Bbob and make sure he cannot make you a set before trying fleabay.

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

Those look like a much better design and less expensive than the one from RIS.

Thanks for posting









One last question, do you know who makes the tank bra shown in this pic?



Never mind, I found it

On Vics, I don't generally notice too much heat that high up. When I demo newer Vic touring bikes, the heat all seems to be soaking my lower legs. I just test rode a Vision a couple weeks ago and had to keep my feet dangling on the side edges of the boards to get relief. And it was only about 60F that day.

I'm not sure what people see in "lowers" on these newer bikes. I ride a XR and without lowers, even if I'm boiling due to ambient heat of a hot day, I notice next to nothing contributed from the bike.

Pretty sure i am going to end up ordering this. We have already had a few 103 plus days and the engine heat on the back of the thighs was pretty darn warm.

Thanks for the replies! I was hoping to find a chrome one like the Kuryakyn's. I will order me one of the leather ones before it starts getting hot again here in the south.
