I just read they are no longer making the Power Vision for Victory so when the current shelf stock is gone; that's it. I'm sure the shops that currently support it will continue to but probably not any new shops so the Maximus is the better choice in that arena I would think.

I've had good luck with the PC-V but the Maximus is newer and probably better technology. I can't say for sure. Maybe someone with more experience with them can say.

Wellll......I put the stock pipes back on my bike, but it still has the torque-tube intake. Runs pretty crappy at low rpms and knocks. Not sure what to do with it.

My Indy says "Any tuner will work".

why put stock pipes back on and wtfs an indy?
sounds like you need to put the Bassanis back on and get it to someone familiar with Victorys that has Maximus tuning capability before you kill it.
It breathing in nice and tryna exhale through a gag.

Yes, it runs poorly. Some kind of tuner is in order to allow for the increased air flow. Just bolting on the Bassanis will not solve the problem and will probably entitle you to the 1K fine. Once you get it tuned, give it a bit, and then go back to the plugs.

Conventional wisdom used to be that one could open the exhaust w/o having to re-tune/map, but if the intake was opened up tuning/mapping was an important safety tip.

MotorbikerX on his first 3/12 post has it right re what to do and when.

And, you might think about drilling the stock mufflers. Do it in steps until you like the increased volume. But if you keep the torque-tube intake consider some kind of tuner. You will be glad you did.

Re the new CA law, my understanding is that it relates to the emission system as well. If your bike has catalysts in the exhaust pipes you can drill the muffler w/o affecting their work. If the cats are in the mufflers, punching out the center of the muffler would limit the effectiveness of the cat.

The cats are in the mufflers of my 2016 Sporty so I drilled around the center pipe. The exhaust must go through the cat and baffle but can exit quicker than before. A bit louder, but likely to allow me to visit my friends in SD, CA w/o any legal hassle.

Certainly you have done it by now, but the Sunrise Highway, with a stop at the overlook to see the sun pop, is a peach of a ride.

KevinX in Michigan? I thought he was located NE of Gainesville, FL? That is where his shop was when I took my bike there a few years ago.

Kevinx is in Florida, though he does travel.
His help via the telephone(remember them?) and email, was invaluable on my build.

If I get you and possibly 1-2 more full tuning services paid for and committed, I will move forward with a kit in Canada. Have a buddy that agreed to host my kit in Calgary when not being used. Let me know and tell your Victory riding friends so we can make this Canada remote tuning going.
