Question Questions with my new HighBall

Forgive me if these questions have been answered already, but I did not see any threads that covered these.

1) What is the lean angle?
2) Is there a bank angle sensor?
3) Is there a tachometer available?

I (being new to Victory) have lots of question, but he who does not ask will not learn.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

The digital Tach is included in your speedo cluster. Toggle thru the trip, odometer and you will find a digital tach. The toggle switch is on left side clutch/mirror housing designed to be used while riding with pointer finger. For $50 dollars you can roll your scoot into a Vic shop and they can unlock a couple other features in your cluster but not totally sure what they are. I know for sure a second trip meter is included.

Hi!! Welcome to the high ball club!!
I luv mine so much, i'm sure you will love yours as much.

For the tach, if you dont like the electronic one, you can always buy a real one which goes next to the speedo.
Unlocked speedo gives you a second trip, voltage, average and instant fuel consumption, average speed, and maybe another on I am forgeting. Go check the accessories catalogue.

There is no fork lock, but one is available thru dealer. Chrome only.

Lean angle I do not know. One thing for sure you may have notice the peg feelers. I went thru many of them, once youre tire are not slippery (brand new), you can lean as much as you want and adjust your driving with the peg feelers. After that it'll be the exhaust on the right side but there no need to push it that far.

Enjoy

Thanks, the day I got mine I had worked 3rd shift, went that morning to get it and after all was said and done the bike inspection was at 12:45-1:00, I was ready to get home, left my cage in the dealership parking lot with all of my paperwork inside. rode home and then could not go to sleep.I found the tachometer thanks to Travis P. I have since sprung my cage and all of the paperwork, now time to find time to actually read the owners manual. Not worried about not having a steering lock (the bike lives in my 12x12 storage building or in my work parking lot). The lean angle I will find out about soon enough BUT I did notice the feelers on the pegs on the first ride. I have never riden a bike with apes, but surprisingly I took to it like a fish in water. Not interested in a second trip or instant fuel mileage enough to pay someone to unlock it (might hack it though).

Should you care for having sure enough forward controls I can confirm the Vegas extended kit bolts right up and will make lean angle a bit more. Haven't scraped yet since I did the swap. Very athletic bikes I think.

That's good to know since forward controls will most likely be my first upgrade. Thanks
