Got my recall notice in the mail today:
Victory has determined that, on certain motorcycles, the throttle cable retention nuts for either the pull or push throttle cable may not have been tightened to the proper specification.
As to which those "certain" bikes are:
This Safety Recall affects some vehicles in ALL models of 2012-2013 Victory Motorcycles. Our records indicate that you have purchased a potentially affected vehicle.
I have two pics here. One is the back page of the notice, which has pictures of the four nuts in question: two for each throttle cable, on either side of a holding plate.
The other pic is of my '12 XCT. The inner cable (I don't know whether it's the "push" cable or the "pull" cable) on my bike does indeed have two nuts on it, one on each side of that bracket. The cable that's toward the outside of the bike, however, is held in place not by nuts, but by some sort of plastic or rubber sheath, with what appears to be a notch in it (to snap onto the bracket).
The recall notice makes no mention of this exception, that is, .... (wait for it) ... having only two nuts instead of four. It's certainly possible that the inner-cable's nuts need to be torqued properly, and so I'll schedule an appointment. On the other hand, I'm surprised that this design change regarding the outer cable doesn't seem to be mentioned. Anyone else looked at and counted your (throttle-cable) nuts lately?
