Victory Recall

Just read this today. http://blog.motorcycle.com/2015/01/0...l-pump-issues/

The description of how this played out seems like a quality company taking care of its product / customers. They seem to really be on top of the warrantee data too. Kinda impressed.

Pfffttt...um yeah. Should have been so proactive with the V92's locking up transmissions and V regulator failures. Pretty sad when it takes blood on the tarmac to fess up to junk.

That should be an easy recall. Most of them are probably still in the showrooms or warehouses.

OK, that's pretty funny.

Would be funnier if it wasn't so close to the truth for all but the Cross Country variations.
I assume my '13 XCT will be one for the recall, though I've had zero running issues.

Yeah, something like only 16 failures. Fewer than that when this whole process started. Pretty responsive.

So, for the new models now it's

Victory: 2 recalls

Harley Davidson: 5 recalls

Is that accurate?

So, would it be less obvious if I'd have said, "some other American motorcycle manufacturer?" Im certainly not talking about Indian.

This thread will instigate shit talking from the orange and black bleeders, just casting the first stone.

Now if we could get them to fix the propensity for the rear front fender on the Vision to crack off at the mounting bolts & lock the front wheel or jam the steering before it kills someone.

recall and riots

The OP just made a statement as to the recall of Victory M/C. Maybe he was just trying to make someone that has not been notified aware of the recall, maybe not. You would think that people and drama would subside somewhere at sometime. It seems that on every site no matter of the forum stiring has to happen.

How long have you owned it and how many miles have you put on it?

I've had five....current one has 23K on it, five oil changes one set of tires. Needs new tires soon.

The other four accumulated about 100K miles....the only one that ever broke was the '00, two fuel pumps.

I've never had any other in the shop for "repair."

Rollin (an inmate) is around here somewhere. His long distance adventures are chronicled all over this forum. He's had three, i don't think he's ever had a breakdown either.
