Hey all, i just ordered some hard lowers from vic and am wondering if they come with the 12v outlet and/or iPod cable? If not the iPod cable, is it possible to move the cable from the rt saddlebag to the left compartment? Thanks in advance!

No the hard lowers do not come with the wiring or hardware for the 12v/iPod connectors. you can buy that separately and its basically plug and play installation, there is a connector under the tank it plugs into and a mount in the lowers.
It is possible and fairly easy to move the iPod connector from the bags up to the lower but you won't have a 12v power. If you do this remember to move the rubber plug from the lowers bracket to the hole in your bag to keep it water tight. ;)

Keep in mind the power outlet kits from Vic , the Ipod wires , 2 are wired backwards right from the factory . I tried 3 kits and the Ipod had nothing but static . I contacted KevinX about it and he said he had run into this also and the kits were wired backwards . When you match up the connectors it is easy to see the incorrect wires , I just cut them and soldered them in correctly , its an easy fix once you have this information . The kit goes for 50.00 or so ,I think and I love having the power outlet and Ipod in the lowers . I also got the lock kit for mine also .

Can you have the lowers' lock keyed the same as your ignition?

They do not come with a key or lock set but it is $35 or so and is a cabinet lock type key and not anywhere close to the ignition key.

Hard lowers come just as the lowers, painted to match, but just the lowers. You can add the lock and ipod kit if you wish. They also have the large vent in the front you can open or close to your liking.

If you go with the hard lowers you will want to get the fairing winglets to complete the air control ....

Maxx has what you need listed for sale. Although the cable is way long you can just roll it up in your fairing.

Still amazes me that 4 years after they introduced the lightning connector Victory is still selling XC's with the 30-pin.

I know the Magnum's have the USB input which is a step up but you think they would have at least started offering a lightning cable accessory for the XC crowd.

Yes, so choose between frying the skin off your calves, thighs or nuts.....Oh wait, that's just my low heat tolerance talking ...:ltr:
Oh God, I sure hope those days are over :rolleyes:

I rode in South Carolina two weeks ago with the new lowers and I'm not sure if it's the AF, ATS or the lowers, but it was hot on my thighs! WTF do you guys do in the summer? Remove the lowers? That means I have to move that damn iPod cable back to the saddlebag... beating- I don't mind doing that in the winter when I can only ride every couple of weeks or so anyway, but summer, I'd rather be riding-

You could try removing the cats if you want to keep the lowers... heat is a real issue for some modified XC's

We pull the tampon out and then it's just fine.

Seriously though, I just have the goody's ones and have no issues during the summer.

I am not arguing with you, but...
