So i had been looking for a hammer the last couple of weeks, and had seen a couple of 05's that had me interested at about $4,000.
But then i saw a 2013 Vegas under 10,000 miles and the guy let me have it for $5,000 bucks. How could i pass this up i told myself.
Well here i am, its got brand new tires, shinko sr777's. Not sure if that woukd have been my choice but they are new.
I am loving this thing, Its got some mean torque and HP for a cruiser. Only thing i noticed is when i give it full throttle i hear what sounds like marbles hitting metal under me. I think i remember hearing this when i owned an old buell that was air cooled. Is this a normal sound?
Other then that it rode wonderfully right after i bought it and drove it about 45 miles in some backroad twisties. Anyways im pretty happy, Ill be here looking up ways to spend all my monies!
Also what is that metal box right where kickstand rests when its up?
2013 Victory Vegas 8ball
1979 Yamaha XS1100sf
"Only thing i noticed is when i give it full throttle i hear what sounds like marbles hitting metal under me." sounds like timing is to advanced and PINGING ! Try running hi octane fuel in it and see if that stops the PINGING!
Yea i got a feeling the previous owner might have been using just regular gas, and he did not ride much because of an injury. Maybe old gas or just plain 87. Highest i get here is 91. I filled up about half a tank when i got it. Ill just take it easy until i get a few tanks of 91 through it. It was also 102 degrees if that makes any differance.
