Victory Transmission Problems!?!?!
Ok, I'm a new Victory Jackpot owner as of early July and am wondering if anyone else has had a transmission failure like mine. Bought a new '08 model, Owned the bike for a month and a half and was just getting back from a trip. I was on the interstate in overdrive and started exiting off. I grabbed the clutch (fully disengaged), coasted for 30-40ft then decided to shift down. Stepped on the gear shift and all of a sudden my trans started grinding horrifically. Started making all kinds of racket, never let the clutch go, so got on the brakes hard and moved over to the shoulder. Got to about 30mph when my trans completely locked causing my rear tire to lock. This caused me to stop a lot quicker then expected but was able to keep the bike up.
So anyways, now my bike's been in the shop for a month and was just told half my trans parts are on back-order (under warrenty)!!!! So now it's looking like I won't get my bike back before riding season is about over. Just really pisses me off. Another crappy thing is since I didn't buy my bike from the local dealer they won't let me take out a loaner to get some riding in!
Anyone else had trans problems or any other type of problems from victory?? Or am I just one of the lucky ones??
