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.

So far it hasn't. I'm sure you are dissipointed in that so you wanted to stir the pot.

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.

You don'y own one and probably never will. You just came here to stir the pot as well. So sad.

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.
