Hi everyone - As I stated in my intro post, I scored a 2001 V92C w/ 894 miles. Ran the VIN through the Victory Site and came up with the following info: So, if it says bulletin completed, then the dealer has a record of reparing the recall, correct? So, that brings me to the rear sprocket cushion drive, which according to my research is Victory's solution to the notoriously unreliable transmissions...correct? If so, does anyone have a picture of what the rear sprocket cushion drive repair looks like? That way, when I bring it to the dealer to get fixed, I know what to look for so the dealer can't just claim he repaired it but left it uncorrected? I hate to think the worst of dealers, but he's not making money occupying repair bays doing free recall/warranty work...

Bulletin Status Bulletin Information
Bulletin Completed V-01-03 - BRAKE ROTOR FASTENER REPLACMNT
Bulletin Completed V-01-05 - PRI DRIVE SPLIT GEAR REPACMENT
Bulletin Completed V-02-05 - FUEL PUMP REPLACEMENT
Bulletin Completed V-03-05 - UNEXPECTED SIDESTAND DEPLOYMNT
Review bulletin to see if it applies V-01-06 - BATTERY REPLACEMENT
Bulletin needs to be applied V-06-07 - REAR SPROCKET INSPECTION ONLY
Bulletin needs to be applied V-06-07A - REAR SPROCKET CUSHION DRIVE

Thanks
Frank

Hi Frank,

If your rear pulley has about five "arms" it is OEM and does NOT have the cush drive.

If your rear pulley has circles and is rather "full" looking it has the cush drive.

I will try to locate a picture later today.

This is a pic of a cush drive pulley. eBay had a cush drive kit listed for a while but is no longer listed. I may be wrong but i don't think Victory has to honor any recalls over ten years and maybe even seven years after the recall was put out.

From the NTSB site:

Are there any limitations on my right to have a recalled vehicle remedied at no charge?

Yes. There is a limitation based on the age of the vehicle. In order to be eligible for a free remedy, the vehicle cannot be more than 10 years old on the date the defect or noncompliance is determined. Under the law, the age of the vehicle is calculated from the date of sale to the first purchaser. For example, if a defect is found in 2003 and a recall ordered, manufacturers are required to make the correction available at no charge only for vehicles purchased new in 1994 through 2003. However, consumers should realize that even though manufacturers are not obligated to remedy safety defects in older cars, a safety problem might still exist. If you receive notification of a defect on a vehicle older than 10 years, take the responsibility to have your car repaired at your own expense – and eliminate unnecessary safety risks.

Also, if the manufacturer challenges the agency’s final decision of a safety defect, there is no obligation for the manufacturer to remedy the defect while the case is in court. If you decide to have your vehicle remedied at your own expense while the case is pending and the court upholds NHTSA’s final decision, you may be entitled to reimbursement. (Be sure to save all receipts and paperwork so that you can prove the repairs were made.) However, if the court ultimately rules the defect is not safety related, Federal law does not require that the manufacturer reimburse you for the repair work

Hope that helps.

Thanks so much for the research...I'm hoping that the dealer will work with me if I get a bunch of other stuff done there...(ex. If I buy new tires, and do the inspection, since you have the rear off anyway, will you work with me on replacing the cush drive?)

Thanks again
Frank
