Prolly stolen. A Harley dealer was telling me about all the tank badges that got nicked from the last Harley anniversary editions. He anticipates the same thing with this year's anniversary badge too.

Good luck with that. Personally, I wouldn't mind much if someone took mine if they were careful removing it. The new ones look better on bikes painted primary colors. The new Harley ones look real nice against their color scheme.

Let me know if The dealership does NOT cover it. I have one that I will put in the mail for you no charge.

Just take the other off! IMO the XR looks better without them. I took mine off a couple of months ago because the right one was coming loose on its own. I made up for it by getting a Script cheese wedge badge to go on the left wedge.

when i first got my xr i took black silicone and worked it under the edge that sticks out on the badges, then carefully wiped off the excess, to help hold them on and keep out water.

So the dealer is not going to replace your badge? If not then that is kind of silly on Victorys part, it is free advertising for them! They actually should give them away to anybody who wants one because Vic is the one gaining the most from it.

I agree and victory should use better glue to hold them on

Agree. One of the tank badges on my XC (with ~500 miles on it at the time) blew off going the highway. Was thinking about getting the "Victory Motorcycle" lettering anyway...this just sped up the process. :rolleyes:

Do you blame dealer for not trying or ordering you one?
We can't say Vic denied you unless you were sitting there when dealer called them or if you saw there reply to dealers email.
I'm guessing dealer is the lame ass not Vic

If your badges are flying off, you guys are riding too fast! :ltr: And, there is less drag without the badges. ;)

I agree don't think the dealer wanted to mess with it so I started thinking ( smoke coming out of ear ) I have another dealer a little further away never used them but I called and ask them bout it told me to bring bike up there they would take pix and send to victory to see what they bout it so if I don't have to work Saturday I will take up there to them
