I went to my local Victory dealer today to have a look around and meet an old friend bluto. Walk in the front door and this is what greats me;


Number 25 of the lot, my 2009 CVO Ultra was offered for a good trade and I put some $$ down to hold it for a few days while the wife and I talk.

My Ultra was great for 28,000 miles, first fix was this spring and it was a burnt out turn signal lamp. I test rode the CC 2 years ago and knew then it would be in my garage sooner or later. I may have it soon now thumb up

Now all I need is to compile a listing of Victory aftermarket parts websites for me to buy from.

So, bring on the websites
The nice thing about the Ness versions is that they already have a lot of things "added" to them that would cost alot if you had to pay for them separately (The Diamond-cut cylinder heads alone are expensive).

I have only added 2 things to my '11 Ness so far (Klockwerks windscreen & some custom Ness Highway pegs). Others have replaced the Victory running boards with Ness Chrome ones and a few have either painted or chromed the radiator fairing but that's about it. IMHO, these Ness bikes are more bike than the CVOs and are more reliable as well. Welcome to the party!

Yeah, I know a Klock Works flare is in my future. Had one of them on my Road Glide and loved it.

Some other "Wants"
Heated grips
Highway pegs
Heel/toe shifter
HID or LED headlamp
Zumo 660/665(Have the HD model now, may keep it and transfer it to the CC )


I ride my bikes, so creature comforts and safety stuff are a must.

The Ness XC is pretty much as close as you can get to a Harley CVO Ultra. Just takes a few more parts and paint to get it there.

I think there's already a Stage 1 kit on them so if you bumped it up with the Lloydz cams; you'd be set and kick ass on the CVO's you might run with from time to time. :)

I'm actually surprised there isn't a Ness XCT available yet. Maybe next year or this Summer.

Yeah, mine will be a Ness XCT by the time I'm done adding the trunk, CB and more to it.


BTW, I got the OK last night from my wife. It's going to be mine

:D dance 1dance 1

Congrats on getting approval from "she who must be obeyed";)
In order to get the heated grips, you'll be needing this website as they work with the Ness Grips...
http://www.heatdemons.com/Internal-Handlebar-Grip-Warmer-brHarley-1-14-Right-Mount-Black_p_47.html

You will probably want to buy a heated seat off someone on eBay.

And one of these days, someone will make a good looking hard lowers kit for the forged bars (a couple are under develop but none look good ...to me)

How is the Vic exhaust upgrades as far as sound and power? I'm not looking for straight pipes, I want a little growl, but I still want relative quiet when I am on a week long trip.

The Vic stage 1 pipes aren't much to listen too, I recommend the D&D with the wrapped baffles unless you like them LOUD then go unwrapped.

I'm guessing that those Heat Demons for the Harley also fit the Vic but not listed
You will want to contact them directly to verify but yes, they fit inside the bars and you simply need to make certain you get the right diameter ones because the bars on our Ness bikes is larger than they are on the standard Cross Country and on the Harleys. Search for my thread on here for more details as to which model is needed.

PIPES - There are a limited number of options including Ness Big Honkers, D&D wrapped and unwrapped, & RPW of actually "manufacturers". Based on other threads, the Big Honkers put out the most power (a better design I guess) but they still use your existing heat shields. They are a bit louder than the others when you jump on them. I think the RPW & D&D are actual pipe's that don't use the OEM heat shields under the bags but do use the catalytic converter portion that is near the heads.

There is also a slew of guys who are more of an "after-market" modifiers that take an OEM pipe and de-core it and then resell them under their own name. It is a process anyone with a few tools can do themselves for under $30 but most all those guys charge $200+ your original pipes and shipping for their service. Those range from NASCAR6 to Atom Bombs to who-knows-what. In some cases they don't outright tell you that theirs is a service so you might have to do some digging if you want to find out if it is an actual product or if you are willing to pay someone for that "service".

Not exactly, the D&D are the only real pipes that don't use the factory heat shields. The RPW, D&D and Nascar6 put out the best power on the dyno.
