Looking for a speed sensor for my Victory Vegas 8 Ball. Stopped into several Indian [Polaris dealers] including the dealer I purchased my Vic from. All said "Discontinued & Unavailable" !! Polaris was supposed to make parts for 10 years, what happened ??? I'm going to be really P Oed if I have to park a truly great bike because of one sensor that is "Discontinued & Unavailable" !!!!

What year is your Vegas? Mine went out on my 2004 and I bought one on ebay.

You really believed Polaris would keep their word!!!

My Vegas is an '07. Looked at Ebay, the sensors are a different part #. This is the second time this sensor has let go in the 10 years I've had this bike. Vision Johnny, "They just made a new one" what ?? New Vic shop or speed sensor ??

That is exactly what I suggested a while back when this came up. Adapting parts to make it work. Same will be needed for more parts in future. People will find a way to keep these bikes on the road.

Ride Safe,

Get a hold the Vic Werks. They have a few 05-07 sensors that they had made. They are looking for a few bikes to test on.

A comment:
I think hall effect sensors are susceptible to heating and cool down.
I say that because on my crossfire car it is a known problem that the CPS goes out - despite Bosch Quality - because it is so near exhaust heat.
So... not a Victory issue so much as an 'available component' issue?
