Default Never thought about it but took the plunge

Well.... Was in the market for a touring bike and had not really considered a Victory. I came across someone who desparately needed to sell a 2007 Jackpot so I figured what the heck. I can always sell it right? I have had it for 2 weeks and took it for about a 100 mile spin over the weekend and WOW!! Had no idea it would be this much fun.... I am a Jackpot junkie now and have already started with the mods. The only bad part is I am not very handy (I work with a calculator) so I have to pay to get most stuff done but I will be taking a stab at cleaning the throttle bodies. Wish me luck and super glad I discovered Victory

Congrats and welcome!

When I picked up a Hammer this summer it had 8000 miles and that cleaning had never been done. I had to turn the idle way down after as it ran so much better.

I followed this great how to and it was surprisingly easy. I used some Carb-Out gun cleaner soaked onto a section of old tshirt with a wooden dowel to get some reach and it worked wonderfully. I personally didn't want to spray anything directly into the throttle body.

Welcome from another 'Jackpot Junkie'. I went in to buy a new Vegas 8 Ball last summer and ride off on a used JP.

Where & when. If the weather is good, I might get a group together for a ride to the BR myself on Saturday. Would be nice to meet up with other Victory riders
