the bike is set from the factory, i am told, for a 200 pound rider.after the 500 mile service, i was detailing the bike, and that's when i noticed the powder coat comeing off the frame.the dealer here in vegas adjusted the shock inward 1/4 inch worth of threads 2 stiffen her up a bit. so now it's hitting the frame still. i spoke 2 the dealer 2day, and they want 2 mill the underside of the BRACKET itself.there's got 2 be a better solution 4 this,i shouldn't have 2 do this.IT'S got 2 be something simple, you would think? thanks, jeff.NO it is not normal. How low is your bike? Your bike shouldn't be bottoming out like that. Have you relocated your rear wiring harness? If not you NEED to do it ASAP!
i have 900 miles on my first vic, the allen bolt that attaches the left side pass peg hits the frame, scrapeing off the powder coat. The dealer tightened up the rear shock, and the bike rode ok still, but now i noticed that it is doing it again.Anyone have any thoughts, is this normal? This is my 20th bike, since 1971.
