Howdy and welcome. You might want to shorten your forum name to "stevesbronco" instead of using your full email address. A moderator might even be able to do that for you since you only have a couple of posts so far.
Steve you are going to love that bike the more you ride it. It can handle anything you are brave enough to put it through. Don't be afraid to push it. It's a great riding and handling bike. I sure like mine. :grin Ride over to East Tennessee and you can experience some twisties that will show you how well it handles.
+ These Vic engines love to rev, so do not lug it thinking you are protecting it. You'll be doing just the opposite. Shift above 3K rpms - I like to grab shifts at @ 4500+ when the road lets me.
+ When starting, open the throttle about 1/8 turn and do not release the button until the engine is running. Let idle for a minute or two before gently taking off.
+ Read the manual, especially about clutch adjustment and check it often.
+ Many new to Victory complain bout the clunky transmission. If you preload the shifter, you will get smoother and quieter shifts.
a local shop was working on my bike and allowed it to fall! and now the right grip is just slightly higher than the left. How can I adjust them to be straight again
any videos on handle bars out there?
Hello All—thanking you in advance for the suggestions and advice. Just got a 2008 Victory Kingpin Tour-love it. If any of you are in the Hudson, Ohio area let me know as we have a small group of riders, but all good guys. Thanks, Brian
I'm Poppy from Jacksonville, FL. I recently bought a 2015 Gunner from Craigslist and would love to know what to check, change and upgrade because it hasn't been used for the last 2 years. I would also want to know where to buy parts.
