Hi All Victory riders,
On 20 December it was my birthday and when the party was going “strong” my wife had a 2013 Victory Jackpot delivered to the party without me knowing anything about it…. Perfect party booster I would recommend any wife to do the same for your husband, beautiful orange, only 1 in Indonesia delivered.... (I live in Indonesia)
Due to no number-plates yet I drove in residential areas only, and took fuel from the bike-shop, this week I had to take my first fuel from the petrol station, but the LOW LEVEL light was still not ON so i just kept on driving waiting for the "low level" light to switch ON, but the engine stopped and when I was standing till the light went on, classic example isn’t it??, hahahah so i bought 1 liter fuel from the road-side (this is for the locals" and drove to the petrol station...... for the Pertamax good quality fuel very embarrassing but my mechanical mind kept on saying, test test test, I read all the forums regarding “bad” fuel gauges and speedometer so I must accept reading the “trip meter” from now on, very irritating I must say…..

also after washing my bike the headlight had condense inside, so that will be the last time I will "spay"the front light with a water hose......

This is the first time I have a V-twin and I love it...... very powerful in low RPM as I live on a small island this is super FUN, I used to drive a 1100 Kawasaki in Holland winter and summer so I am not a “newcomer” to driving bikes; just V-twin’s

Could you guys help with a workshop manual or were to order one? As you would understand that every problem on this bike will have to be solved by myself, as the mechanics are not what you expected....

I have tried “online” to order stuff for the bike but all the sites you need this PayPal pfffff does anybody know a shop or site where you just can transfer money like you supposed too instead of PayPal? I tried;
http://www.victoryonly.com/
http://buywitchdoctors.com/
and the nicest drawing online I found from this site; http://parts.polarisind.com/Assemblies.asp

On the moment I am fabricating a number-plate bracket // rear indicator light bracket // and drawing a "skid-plate" as here in Indonesia we have a lot of "speed bumps" and already 3 times I softly hit the carter on these @*&^%$ things, excuse my language

I wanted to attach a picture but apparently this is not possible with new users?

Rgrds,
Andre

Hi LILMA,

NICE looking victory you got, I like it.....

Yeah I do not think it is going to work like that with PayPal, My passport is from Holland my accounts are in Singapore and i live in Indonesia, and about 10 years ago I created a PayPal with my Holland account and now it is impossible to set-up a new one on the same Email address..... even wrote Emails with them about this:crzy::crzy::crzy:

I just want some site in the USA to accept money transfers and be done with it? I wrote to "" [email protected] "" but no replies yet, hope one day somebody in that sales department would like to take my money as I like to dress up the bike, 4" extended foot-pegs, bolt covers, etc, etc as I am 194 Cm tall I need to be comfortable

If not I will just keep on designing and fabricating everything locally as i am already starting now with the license bracket // indicator lights // skid plate

:ltr::ltr::ltr::ltr::ltr:

Ya , I see your paypal dilemma , I believe viconly and witchdoctor will also take debit or credit card , if that works for you or mail a check or money order ? It would be slow but should work for you . Good luck , it must suck being overseas and all the best suppliers are in the States ... If you are looking for a service manual you can download one from member BBob , its for a 2012 , but I believe they are identical to the 13's and its a factory manual , not bad for free ! ;)cheers

This is GREAT info,

yes any manual will be helpful for me, also the bike-shop who sells the bikes do not have any information..... I will look for member BBob and download this Manuel. thumb upthumb up

The Debit / Credit card I will try this, as time is not an issue, I work all over the world and never in a hurry....:D:D

I have seen some nice items I like to buy.... :cool::cool:
