Default Howdy...

New to the Forum.

Looking at an '09 Kingpin & I have a few questions.
The description states that it's air & oil cooled.
How does that work, and will I encounter overheating problems on hot, humid days?

As you can tell in my Sig, I ride a lot. I am meticulous about upkeep, how many
miles have people got out of their bikes?

Are there any problems I should be aware of?
Here's a link to the bike.

2009 Victory Motorcycles KINGPIN for sale in Hartford, CT. New England Cycle Center Hartford, CT (860) 527-0822

I see it has lowers, but no windshield.

Do those look like stock handlebars?

TIA for your input,

RB.

BTW in the pic, I see the speedo, I assume the 2 other things are speakers(?).

What is the black oval thing in the middle?

I haven't seen the bike in person yet, prolly stop by tomorrow.

The radiator is really an oil cooler. Air flows thru it and cools the oil. Can't help with the other questions. Good luck!

All air/oil cooling means is that, its air cooled engine, with oil running through and around the cylinders and heads for extra cooling. Some models have an additional oil cooling radiator(which this Kingpin seems to have) I believe the bars are not stock and it looks like the head light was changed out to the shield shaped light.

What I'd be most concerned about is not the bike but the dealership selling it.....I wouldn't give the buttholes at New England Cycle Center a dime of my business....

The only thing I can help you with is the HEAT ISSUES with Victory's , there are non, ... Also there is a Tempeture cutoff switch... So if the bike would EVER overheat, then you just wait and later ride again...

As you understand V-Twin are not water-cooled (for victorys),

so the engine oil pump has a valve to the oil cooler and a small amount will go trough the oil cooler if needed, the old vics had a bigger oil cooler but the engine's did not reach operating temperature, so they made them smaller...

Please note I live next to the Equater, so it is kinda hot here...

Let us know what you decide and welcome to the nicest vic site...

Default Heat

Welcome. Those guys that say don't buy from that dealer should say why (Not disagreein' and not sayin you should or shouldn't just sayin' why not?). As far as Heat I've ridden my Vision in triple digits in a friggin minivan caused traffic jam through Oak city without a hiccup so IMHO heat is not an issue. I've no idea what those black and chrome fangled things are but would like to.

Long may you ride.

Long may you ride!

Not to be pigeon-holed as one of "those guys"...... New England Cycle Center has treated me poorly the few times I've been in there. NECC is the type of dealership that can't extended common courtesy to customers, which makes it no surprise that their service reputation sucks as well. They don't have a caring attitude or ethic so, I don't care to do business with them.
