Default what is it?

I was cleaning my bike yesterday and I noticed on the left side of the bike on the front part of the engine (next to the gear shifter), there is a small unpowdercoated section; and in the middle of this section there is hole that appears to be threaded. Just wondering what the heck it it? I have a 2011 Vegas.

What is it? It is a small unpowdercoated secton with a threaded hole in it. What it is for is beyond me, but I have that too. Probably to mount a bracket or something on different model bikes. I just masked it off and gave it a touch of flat black high temp paint.

Same here, painted it and tempted to put a short bolt in too.

I didn't notice it until yesterday and now it drives me nuts...my eyes are drawn to it. Surely, it has a purpose. Has anyone bought something that is supposed to mount there?

Yep, my '10 JP has it too. Looks like something should be there that's missing, but I guess not... :0

It's nothing to be worried about

Victory haven't changed the casting mould from an earlier development cycle though what purpose it had back then I do not know.

Was going to ask Sebastian silversmiths to tap me a bolt with a mini 8 ball on top so I don't have to look at it.

This was the location of the oil cooling line before 2008. I made a cover for mine. How does it look?

That's funny, I was about 600 miles from home on my last bike and noticed a similar hole....right about where a motor mount would go. You can imagine my concern.
