any body have a set of oe lower fork protectors for a XC or a recommendation of other type. or mod.
Not for nothing ....but those look like someone stuck tongue-depressors to their forks :| One of the ugliest pieces of hardware I've seen for Vics in a long time ...
Pickings are VERY slim for the O.G. kewlmetal guards that I bought 4 years ago. Damm shame.Not for nothing ....but those look like someone stuck tongue-depressors to their forks :| One of the ugliest pieces of hardware I've seen for Vics in a long time ...
Oh sorry, my statements didn't have do with your tastes or style...I was thinking more along the lines of what you just brought up....That those ugly things are what's out there for Vics now...sad :frownPickings are VERY slim for the O.G. kewlmetal guards that I bought 4 years ago. Damm shame.
OP asked for a link, I obliged. "shrug"
out of stock!...lets hope the Chinese start pumping these out!
Discontinued lot of items yes. Not just Victory they do that for all brands. Purging the slow selling items. Has to be enough demand for the knock off market to pick it up.Over a year ago Kuryakyn had a 50% off sale which lead many (me included) to believe they were bowing out of the Victory items. I'd guess they are and are just letting inventory expire without being replenished. That may be why the actual manufacturer in China has been offering the same items directly to the market.
hey @ObiSteve, with all the dirt road riding you do, is there any problem with getting stones in your drive belt.Hey Psychodiablo, rubber fork gaiters from a 41mm Wide Glide go on OK, and give the seals great protection against dirt. They do look a bit different down at the bottom of the forks. I do a lot of dirt road riding, and have not blown a fork seal since putting them on my HardBall. I'll post a close up pic soon.
I had one about 6mm but standing proud embedded and with help put a socket underneath and drove it out with a punch then did another 60,000 kms with a central hole, no problems, I only replaced it at 100,000 kms cos I went big bore and cams and got a new belt at the right price off our mate whos no longer here getting us cheap new parts Paulie @ HondaeasttoledoHi fellas, here is the close up.
Motorbikerx, I have one small pebble, about 3mm, embedded in the belt. I reckon I would do more damage digging it out, than leaving it. It is centred in the belt, and embedded fully, level with the rubber surface. Been there 40000 kms, belt is original, done 106000 kms. There are no dimples in the pulleys in line with it, but the pulleys have a lot of pitting in their hard anodising, presumably from dust and mud and I would be happier replacing the pulleys if I replace the belt.
I do keep an eye on it.
I have a spare belt, a warranty takeoff with 2000 kms on it, from the very early days of the Brisbane Vic shop. The XC's owner said it was noisy.
