It seems that almost everyone in the country that owns a 1999 or 2000 victory has major transmission problems. I realize that these are relatively older machines. I have searched the country looking for a solution to this problem and it seems that there isnt one except for buying a replacement transmission. Victory doesnt have replacement parts or gears for the tranny, they want you to buy a whole different transmission which alone costs 2000 dollars and thats if you have the know how to do the job yourself. Probably about 6000 if you pay to put it in. It appears that victory knows that this system is complete junk or they wouldnt have developed a new tranny to replace the old one. And i believe that the reason that there is has never been a recall on the part is for the reason that it is expensive and would cost the company alot of money in man hours to have them replaced. Ive tried to get in touch with the big wigs at polaris industries and keep running into dead ends and it seems that the only people u can call are customer service reps who have no mechanical knowledge and honestly can really do absolutely nothing. What are your thoughts on this issue, does anyone know a way to get in contact with the head honchos at victory or polaris?
