I was on a PGR mission today, and for the second time someone told me "He heard" you can't get parts for a Victory over 10 years old.
Fact or fiction? HD rider BS?

I do have a friend that has an independent MC repair shop who couldn't get fork tubes for a 99 V92. He found them from an after market supplier.
My friend also doesn't like Polaris because they will not sell him parts wholesale, so he can make a profit on them. He says the parts cost him the same as if I was to go to the dealer and buy them myself.

My '04 V92TC is a great bike, and so far hasn't needed any parts, but the day will surely come.
Opinions? Experiences?

Well, from what I understand, that is true about most of the V92 C models. I would suspect now that they have discontinued the Kingpin, that they will no longer support it either.

I never tried buying anything from the dealer, I would think some parts
are still available. as far as accessories go Ebay is about the only place. Some Victory aftermarket company's has limited items.

Try to get parts specific to an eleven year old Harley from a HD dealer.

Pot meet kettle.

My take from the forums and experience would be some true but mostly not. First, limited production before 2002 and the 2nd gen redesign came leaves a 4yr engine and a lot of bit pcs behind. Bike pick and pull, old OEM shelves and ebay or commercial equivalents I think filled about everyone's request except for something like a new rack or seat. 2002-2006 looks pretty well covered minus that TB boot that goes to the cans. I know chasing that has sucked for 2 riders. As for after market? Well heck that's what we look for today right?

Longest wait I have had on my 04TC was the OD pulley. Front TS were coming apart and went for modding them vs OEM. There might be some specifics out there but I doubt in any qty that would stop anyone wanting a good dependable ride that doesn't break the bank just to get it in the garage. I may still own a HD one day but my main ride will always be a VIC!

You will be hard pressed to find a twin cam in a 99. Some of the 2000 models still had the evo in them.

The Twin Cam was introduced September of 1988. The first model year was 1999. I know, I owned one. I wasn't hard pressed to buy one. Quite a few customers bought them. Came out as a 88CI engine.

I have a 99 Softail standard and a 2000 fatboy setting in my garage that belong to my friend and both of them are evo's. from what I understand the twin cam was offered as an upgrade in 99 and came on the touring bikes in both 99 and all bikes 2nd half of the year of 2000. I have had to work on both of these things enough. They just don't like to stay sealed of leaks.
