I just purchased a 2008 Victory Vision from a local dealer. It has 10,000 miles on it. They assured me it was good to go and that they had put the last 1,000 miles on the bike after trade in.

I have competed a thorough detail on the bike. I noticed the exhaust has quite a bit of 'rust' on it (under the chrome facia) and that the aluminum structural components are showing quite a bit of oxidation as well.

Is there something I should do about this. I will disassemble the bike during the winter and polish and seal the aluminum.

Any service issues I should be aware of???:confused:

  • If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature, please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

About the only thing I can tell you is do not use one of the old Ipods that have the hard drive on the Vision.

It will destroy the hard drive. It has something to do with the harmonics of the bike.


The rust on the pipes is normal. However if you have to remove it as I suggested in another of your threads, use the Masters Formula. You can buy it from Cycleops.

If that doesn't remove it then you will need chrome or powdercoat.

Typical on the exhaust. Vic use really cheap steal.
Once it starts to rust your screwed. Sandpaper it and paint with VHT and then just wait for the mufflers to go away. Then replace but not with vic mufflers.
Vic mufflers will last a long time so don't go into a big panic.
