So what are some common problems others have run into with 2005 victory vegas 8 ball. New here and just purchased a 8 ball looking to get all info and as much help as possible as I am finding most Mechanics in area are unclear of victory and more familiar with Harley.

Appreciate the help!!

Thanks for tips above ^^^^

Purchased at 15k ,now at 17k ....pipes,carlini bars
I have read that a few people have had problems with getting into neutral, i also have that issue seems like Clutch went out after ride this weekend would not shift down into gear when coming to stop,and when i was in gear cruising and got on throttle the torque was delayed, sound was there but no pull for a few seconds. I cleaned the clutch lever at the cable attachment after ride , but I'm pretty sure clutch is burned out . I was given a Barnett clutch assembly new gonna try that next with the throttle body tip!

Sometimes fresh oil 'n' filter helps here though not always... Good luck.
