Parts pit stop is in Michigan if you go back to factory chrome plastic. $36 each for those things.

Victory Challenger black fork guards are super cheap $10-15. Just ignore that Indian logo or break out the sand paper and make it vanish.

I have something little more heavy duty I bought off Facebook.

I just ordered a Victory oil change kit. I have been running Amsoil 20/40 with Mobil 1 filters for several years. I order the oil by the case. But Victory oil change kit was on Amazon Prime and everything I need is in the kit and it will be here Sunday. It just makes everything easy.

I thought everyone was trying to get away from Vic oil. They practically give away those oil change kits now. Still more expensive than buying separate oil and filter. I never change crush washers after my first oil change. I'm a rebel. Lol

I lost a fork protector last weekend so I made a quick pair out of stainless. Heading to Tennessee next week so needed something.

That looks like it will last for ever! I'm running Wide Glide forks gaiters, looks a bit strange down there on the USD forks, but work very well.

Amazon delivered my oil change kit yesterday, but it's been raining and to muddy to get the scooter to the barn. So it will be a few days before I change the oil. But I will go to the Cantina and listen to music and have several beers mid afternoon with my scooter. Most days it's just me and the XC out there.

Ordered some mirror extensions for my bike, three of us switch bikes and rode everyone else’s bike and everyone said my mirrors need to be higher. I agree I look at my shoulders. Both their bikes I could see them much better with their mirrors. Hopefully extending them up an inch and a half will do it. Anyone else have mirror extensions, show me what you use.

You must be tall with low handlebars.

I’m 6 feet tall I could put the handlebars up a little higher but I couldn’t rotate the clutch enough to make it comfortable, I got 54,000 on it, I’m used to the mirrors but I thought I just raised them a hair to make it that much better.

Do what you gotta do to see. I do love the mirrors Victory uses. It's nice having the wide viewing angle.

Why would the clutch perch not rotate more? If it has a tab that inserts into a hole in the handlebar, you can create a new handlebar hole or remove the tab.

Yes you could modify the pin to rotate it more, but I feel comfortable where the bars are now. They are within 1/8 of an inch from the inner fairing. Here in Canada we do a lot of cool weather riding and my hands are behind the fairing. So for under $20 on eBay I can raise the mirrors 1 inch. That would be enough. So it sounds like no here has raised them. I will post a pic from front and back when I get them.

If it doesn't rain tonight tomorrow afternoon I need to wash my scooter. I want it to look good for Saturdays lunch run and ride. Today I'll lube cable ends, shifter and brake pedal wear points. I use a lithium chain lubricant that resist rain wash off.
