Default Kinpin Repairs Required

I'd like to start a listing of repairs Victory Kingpin riders have experienced. Could be inside or outside the warranty period.
List the year, model, mileage, and repair issue. i.e.

2008 Kingpin - 1K - Rubber grommet on speedmeter/tach bracket
2008 Kingpin - 5K - Clutch cable broke
2008 Kingpin - 9K - Rectifier/Regulator bad, high voltage

Just "Quote" thread and continue listing.

2008 Vision Tour Premium - Midnight Cherry
2008 Kingpin Tour - Black & Chrome (SOLD 10/14)

That's not a 'repair'. Check/adjust belt tension is a normal maintenance item.

I agree. But it is KingpinRider's post and he had it listed. My point is I have not had any issues.

2012 Kingpin - 4k - Cruise Control Module fried - rode in rain storm
2012 Kingpin - 4k - Rear Pulley, bad pulley from day 1...belt always chirps


Both of the items on my '12 Pin are being replaced under warranty, bike in shop right now. They're even replacing belt under warranty because the pulley was warped causing belt to rub frequently.
