Hi Everyone,
I fell in love with the Magnum X-1 and after much debate decided to pull the trigger. I pick it up on Friday and cant wait. I loved my Kawasaki Vaquero but have to admit the X-1 really pops. I got my mod list started (which is typical for every bike or car I've ever owned). On my list is cams, controller, exhaust, some sort of wind control, passenger backrest. I got a great deal on the Platinum white 2017 along with a bunch of Arlen Ness goodies: Boards, pegs, air cover, grips, engine cover and mini apes. Cant wait to pick it up and ride!

Welcome & congratulations. I'm a Victory rookie myself and just came from a Kawasaki Vulcan 900. Was considering a new leftover 2016 Vaquero, I think Kawasaki makes a very reliable machine. It was very much a back and forth decision because of Victory ending production, but my CCT is just as easy to handle as my 900 was and I'm glad I made my choice. I'll consider myself very lucky if I'm even still able to ride in 10 more years.

Thanks for the welcome. I appreciate it. Apparently I cant post pics yet. Usually forums require a certain number of posts before a person can post pics.

I loved my Kawi but time for a change. I was amazed at how the x-1 felt so light. Its aproximately 40 ounds lighter than the Vaquearo but felt like it was 300 lbs lighter. Love the top opening bags, the style, the paint and performance is a bit higher than Vaquero especially after I add the stage 2 parts to it!!

Welcome from CT. These things just scream to be modded. This is my 4th bike:

- 1987 Suzuki Cavalcade LXE - 40,000 miles added
- 2002 Honda Goldwing GL1800 - Bought new, 53,000 miles

I didn't do a single mod to any of those bikes, and I've been riding every year since 1998.

Enter the Victory XCT.

Lloydz ATS+4
Lloydz filter
PCV and auto tune
Memphis Shields fork wings
Madstad Windshield
Painted wedges w/LEDs & derby cover
S&S Cams
PBR300X4 Amp
Polk DB522 front & rear
No Cats
Beacon LED
Ultimate seat
HyperLites
Hydraulic Clutch Kit
KlockWerks KlipHanger bars
Avon grips
Kury Sabertooth LEDs
LED Driving Lights

It's a sickness now.

Thanks for the comments and welcome. I did put mini appreciate on and tri ovals. Have different mirrors and a 10" windvest screen sitting on my kitchen table. The wind was aweful for me. Ordered a cfad...waiting for it to arrive. Spoke to The Vic Shop..... Trying to find time to get out there and get the "works"....power commander, IAV, timing wheel, cams and 1/4 turn. I'm winging my hands on which can though!! Any advise? My bike before my Vaquero was a M109.... Loved the mid and high end hated it's low speed manners.

Explain to me these handlebars if you will.
Do you cut off the bars when you find the right height, or do you move your grips up and down for comfort, leaving two poles sticking up to get impaled on if you wreck?

Neither. The bars have mounts which allow for forward/back movement as well as grip twist. Add in the fact you can raise/lower them like normal bars and there is lots of adjustment.

with a power commander there is NO need for a IAV it will be a waist of money.

I dont think its a waste.
Allows to to precisely meter airflow at idle.
Gotta know how to adjust em or you may as well not have one yeah.
