Oh gawd, where to start. New or used? New rider or experienced? Owned a big V-twin before? Owned a Victory before? I'll start there.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

I've been riding for years. Just traded in my 2014 yamaha raider for my victory. My victory was a brand new leftover.

Vics take a good while to break in. I swear mine got better every five thousand miles up to 20K.

Then with a few little mods you can really make it run.

I want to either put slip ones or pipes. Big air filter and a tuner. Any suggestions?

Thanks, that helps. Here are some tips....
+ It'll take about 3K miles to completely break in.
+ Break it in like you would your Raider, use the revs.
+ Preload the shifter for smoother and quieter shifting.
+ Do not air the shock with compressor air, use only a small hand pump. Amazon has 'em.
+ When starting, crack the throttle open 1/8 turn / wait for fuel pump to stop priming / hold starter until engine is running / warm for one minute.
+ Place lock washers under the battery terminal bolts - they have a tendency to loosen.
+ Tires; 40 front / 42 rear.
+ Check oil level with bike vertical and dipstick screwed in.
+ Ask questions here before you do something you'll regret.
