Jhn is that part called a clutch cover. I just want the part that has v twin on it.
The part that says Freedom V Twin on mine is held on by 2 fasteners and a splotch of glue, comes off fairly easy and there's lots of aftermarket stuff.
The finish on mine has gone to crap, same with most of the OEM clearcoat Victory parts.
Dunno if they use 2K clear or if they do then it's **** quality but most of it on my 2010 Vegas needs to be stripped off and polished to look better than new.

Trees

Trees referring to the triple trees for the forks. The clear coat on my 2011 XR started coming off , bubbling up, peeling after a hard rain I had rode in. I was not impressed with this at all. Never had this happen on my old Jap bikes. I wish the would have just left the alunimum parts naked, no clear coating. Much easier polishing bear alunimum than trying to take off the clear coat and then trying to polish it up.

Yeah mate my trees are shocking same with lower fork legs, the clear they use has no substance to it to go the distance.
My bikes a rider not a showboat, but yeah without the clear at least it can be polished to whatever degree of lustre you like.
Or if it's left dull at least the dull is consistent.

I saw a bunch of these covers online. a lot of them have the two screws in a horizontal plane not a vertical plane as the XCT has. There is one i likes with an American Eagle but it looks like if i turn it to line up the screws the Eagle would either be flying straight up and taking a nosedive :)

In that case you'd have him flying straight up...
Or get the centrepiece and drill out and redrill the cover.
EDIT... Just looked at an ad and it says there's four screw holes once the cover is off allowing you to orientate your new cover the way you want it..

I saw the same thing so I emailed the company. It is in two pieces, the plate which you can orient any way, and the cover piece. We shall see , I ordered one
