Sewing Machine Sound
Hey there all,
Thanks for having me. I am new to Victory motorcycles (purchasing one later this month-financing set, bike picked out, just waiting to complete transaction).
I do have a question, however.
I test drove a 2016 Vegas 8 Ball. Absolutley LOVED the bike! Great acceleration from a stock setup, incredible handling and very comfortable ride.
The only thing is... the thing sounds like a sewing machine.
I have seen mentions of this in this forum, and have seen some comments on YouTube about it, but haven't really heard the reason for the sound.
Anyone know what the sound is specifically? Is it just the top end (valves, etc) that's making the sound? Does is dampen as the motor is broken in? Would a good set of pipes help with it (regardless if it does or not... the pipes will be swapped out with something with a little more bark to it)?
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks from Maine!
