Carefully read and understand the information found in the safety section beginning on page 5... Understand and follow the procedures in your owners manual to keep your VICTORY motorcycle in top condition on the road or in storage... Bring the manual with you when you ride... Following the precautions and procedures in the manual will add to your enjoyment and keep you riding safely...

Page 8

SAFETY Symbols and Terms Used in the Owners Manual The following safety signal words and symbols appear throughout the owners manual... Your safety and the safety of others are involved when these words and symbols are used... Become familiar with their meanings before reading the manual...

Page 9

S Your ability to safely operate the motorcycle depends on your judgment and your use of safe riding habits... Take a rider education course from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation or another qualified instructor... The course will help you develop or refresh your expertise in safe riding habits through instruction and riding... For information on Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider education courses in your area, call 1-800-446-9227 or visit their homepage at http://msf-usa... org...

Page 10

S Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (see the specifications section, beginning on page 153, or the certifi- cation label on the steering head)... Riding off-road, riding with more than one passenger, or carrying weight ex- ceeding the maximum weight rating can make handling difficult, which could cause loss of control...

Page 11

S If your motorcycle operates abnormally, correct the problem immediately (see the VICTORY Service Manual or contact your authorized VICTORY dealer)... If you continue to operate a motorcycle in this condition, you are likely to aggravate the initial problem, increase the cost of repairs and threaten your safety...

Page 12

SAFETY Safe Riding Practices S The most common cause of accidents involving a motorcycle and an automobile is the automobile drivers failure to see the motorcycle... Ride defensively, as if you are invisible to other motorists, even in broad daylight... Ride where youre clearly visible to other motorists, and observe their behavior carefully, as they may not see or be aware of you...

Page 13

- Bring the motorcycle to the upright position before applying the brakes, and avoid applying the brakes in a corner if at all possible... When the motorcycle is leaning through a corner, the amount of traction available for braking is reduced, increasing the possibility of the tires skidding when the brakes are applied...

Page 14

S Direct the passenger to hold onto you or the seat strap with both hands and to keep both feet on the passenger footrests... Do not carry a passenger who cannot place both feet firmly on the passenger footrests... A passenger who is not holding on properly, or who cannot reach the passenger footrests, can shift their body erratically, which can make the motorcycle hard to handle and cause loss of control...

Page 15

S Wear boots with low heels, as high heels can catch on pedals or footrests... The combination of boots and pants should completely cover legs, ankles and feet, protecting skin from engine and exhaust system heat... The engine and exhaust system get hot soon after the engine is started and stay hot for about half an hour after the engine is turned off...

Page 16

NOTE: **Somemodels are not equipped from the factory with a passenger seat or passenger footrests... DONOT carry a passenger unless the motorcycle is equipped with passenger seat and passenger footrests...

Page 17

Total Weight 1116 lbs (506 kg) NOTE: As shown in Example 2, the weight of any accessory items (e... g... saddlebags and brackets) in addition to the cargo, must be added to the base weight of the motorcycle... NEVER exceed GVWR... If you have any questions regarding safe loading of your VICTORY motorcycle, please consult an authorized VICTORY dealer...

Page 18

S Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the motorcycle... Maintain even weight distribution by checking accesso- ries and cargo to make sure theyre securely attached to the motorcycle before riding and whenever you take a break from riding... Uneven weight distribution, or accessories or cargo that shift suddenly while youre riding can make the motorcycle hard to handle and result in loss of control...

Page 19

Parking the Motorcycle When leaving the motorcycle unattended, turn the engine off and remove the ignition key... See page 73... Park the motorcycle where people are not likely to touch the hot engine or exhaust system or place combustible materials in close proximity to these hot areas... Do not park near a flammable source such as a kerosene heater or an open flame, where hot components could ignite combustible materials... Park the motorcycle on a firm, level surface... Sloped or soft surfaces may not support the motorcycle when its parked, and it may tip over... If you must park on a slope or soft surface, follow the precautions outlined on page 73...

Page 20

S Do not restrain the motorcycle using the handlebars... Loosen the front turn signal mounts and slide them up to make room for the tiedown strap... Place tie-downs around the fork tubes above the lower triple clamp... Se- cure the rear of the motorcycle with tiedowns around the swingarm, being careful to avoid the brake line, ex- haust, and drive belt... Re-position the turn signals after transportation...

Page 21

SAFETY Accessory Selection and Installation Because VICTORY cannot test and make specific recommendations concerning every accessory or combination of accessories sold, the operator is responsible for determining that the motorcycle can be safely operated with any accessories or additional weight... Use the following guidelines when choosing and installing accessories:

Page 22

S Do not smoke while fueling... S Do not fuel in an area where there are sparks or open flame... Gasoline and gasoline vapors are poisonous and can cause severe injury... Do not swallow gasoline, inhale gasoline vapors, or spill gasoline on yourself or your clothes... If you swallow gasoline, inhale more than a few breaths of gasoline vapor, or get gasoline in your eyes, see a physician immediately... If you spill gasoline on your skin, wash it off immediately with soap and water... If you spill gasoline on your clothes, change your clothes immediately...

Page 23

S Check proper steering head bearing adjustment... Regularly inspect the rear shock absorber and the front forks... Check for fork oil or shock absorber fluid leaks... Operating the motorcycle with a loose, worn, or damaged steer- ing system or front or rear suspension system can make the motorcycle hard to handle and cause loss of control... To repair steering or suspension system wear or damage, see the VICTORY Service Manual or contact your autho- rized VICTORY Dealer...

Page 24

S Each fastener used in the motorcycle meets our quality specifications for strength, finish and type... When replace- ment fasteners are needed, use only genuine VICTORY parts, tightened to the proper torque... A fastener that does not meet original specifications could fail and result in damage to the motorcycle or injury to riders...

The turn signals and turn signal indicator should stop flashing... Repeat the procedure for the right turn signals...

Page 53

3... With the engine at normal operating temperature, straddle the motorcycle on level ground and bring it to a vertical position... Remove the oil fill cap/dipstick (1) and wipe it clean... Reinstall the dipstick and turn the cap clockwise until it seats...

Page 54

Evaporative Emission Control System (California models) Visually inspect all evaporative emission control system hoses and connections... Make sure all connections are tight... Inspect the evaporative canister (1) to make sure it has not been damaged... The canister is located on the left side of the motorcycle behind the side stand...

Page 55

PRE-OPERATION CHECK Check Tires Tire Pressure Normal riding warms the tires and increases the tire air pressure... For an accurate reading, check the tire pressure before you ride... Adjust tire pressure as required for the total weight of your intended load... Refer to the tire pressure table on page 115...

Page 56

PRE-OPERATION CHECK Check Brakes Front Brake Lever Movement Squeeze the front brake lever toward the handlebar and release it... It should move freely and smoothly and should return to its rest position quickly when released... You should feel a firm resistance in the lever within the first 3/4-inch (19 mm) of lever travel...

Page 57

PRE-OPERATION CHECK Check Brakes Rear Brake Pedal Freeplay and Movement Rear brake pedal freeplay, the amount of brake pedal movement from the rest position to the point that the master cylinder pushrod touches the master cylinder piston should be 4... 5-7mm (... 177 - ... 280)... Adjust pedal freeplay as necessary (see page 110)...

Page 58

2... View the brake fluid through the reservoir (1)... The fluid should be clear and at a level between minimum (MIN) and maximum (MAX) marks on the side of the reservoir... Add brake fluid if necessary (see page 111)...

Page 59

Check Brake Pads Look at the front brake pads at (1), and rear brake pads at (2)... You should see at least 1/16 inch (1... 6 mm) of friction material on each of the brake pads (see page 113)... If in doubt, measure remaining frictionmaterial... Replace brake pads having less than the specified amount of friction material at their thinnest point...

Page 60

2... Clutch lever freeplay, the amount of clutch lever movement from the rest position to the point of cable resistance, should be between 0... 020-0... 060 inch (... 5-1... 5 mm)... Measure the thickness of the gap between the clutch lever and the lever housing...

Page 61

Check Steering Straddle the motorcycle and bring it to a vertical position... Turn the handlebars from stop to stop... The action should be smooth but not loose or interfered with by wires, hoses or control cables...

Page 62

Check Drive Belt The drive belt should fit tightly... Check drive belt tension (see pages 86-88)... The drive belt system must be cool, clean, and dry in order to accurately measure belt tension (deflection)... Do not measure the belt tension when the belt or drive system is wet, or when it is hot (such as immediately after riding)...

Page 63

PRE-OPERATION CHECK Check Sidestand Straddle the motorcycle and bring it to a vertical position... Move the sidestand (1) to its stored (up) position, then to its fully extended (down) position and back again... It should move smoothly and quietly... When the sidestand is in its stored position, the sidestand return spring should hold the sidestand tightly against the motorcycle...

Page 64

OPERATION The operation section describes how to operate your VICTORY motorcycle for best performance and longevity... Important areas covered include:

Page 65

OPERATION Engine Break-in Period During the first 500 miles (800 kilometers), critical engine parts require special wear-in procedures so they seat and mate properly... Read, understand and use the following rules for operating the motorcycle during the first 500 miles (800 kilometers) to ensure your engines long-term performance and durability...

Page 66

At 500 miles (800 kilometers) S Perform initial maintenance as described in the Maintenance section of the Owners Manual... This maintenance is one of the most important services your motorcycle requires and should be performed by an authorized VICTO- RY dealer... Initial maintenance includes servicing all adjustments, tightening all fasteners, and changing engine oil... Performing this maintenance at the required mileage point helps the engine maintain top performance for its entire service life...

Page 67

OPERATION Engine Break-in Period Fueling and Fill Height Fuel the motorcycle with the sidestand down and on level ground... Use only the recommended fuel (see Fuel Specifications on page 157)... Fill the fuel tank to a level just below the bottom of the fuel filler insert...

Page 68

OPERATION Engine Break-in Period Starting the Engine The VICTORY motorcycle has a starter interlock system... The engine can be started only when the transmission is in neutral or when the transmission is in gear and the clutch is disengaged (clutch lever is pulled in)...

Page 69

6... Leaving the throttle closed, press and hold the starter button until the engine starts... If the engine does not start within a few seconds after you press the starter button, release the button and wait several seconds... Then press and hold the starter button again... Hold the starter button for as short a time as possible to minimize battery drain, and do not push the starter button for more than 10 seconds at any one time... NOTE: If either the check engine indicator or the low oil pressure indicator does not go out after the engine starts, stop the engine... See either Check Engine Indicator, page 38, or Low Oil Pressure Indicator, page 39...

Page 70

Neutral position is between first and second gear... The transmission is in neutral when the motorcycle moves forward or backward freely while the clutch is engaged (clutch lever released)... With the ignition switch set to the ON position, the neutral indicator illuminates when the transmission is in neutral...

Page 71

NOTE: Within the recommended speed ranges (see Recommended Shift Points on page 69), you can downshift (shift to a lower gear) to slow the motorcycle or to increase the available power... You may want to downshift when climbing a hill or passing... Downshifting also helps to decrease your speed when combined with closing the throttle... 11... To shift to a lower gear, simultaneously pull in the clutch lever and close the throttle... Shift into the next lower

Page 72

Downshifting at a speed in excess of the recommended downshift point may severely damage the transmission or cause the rear wheel to lose traction... It could also result in engine damage from running at excessive rpm... Reduce speed before downshifting and do not downshift at a speed above that in the table of recommended shift points...

Page 73

OPERATION Accelerating To accelerate, open the throttle (roll the throttle control grip toward you)... For even acceleration, open the throttle with a smooth, continuous motion... When you reach the recommended speed for upshifting, shift up one gear according to the instructions in Shifting Gears, page 67... The more quickly you open the throttle, the more quickly the motorcycle accelerates...

Page 74

OPERATION Braking To slow the motorcycle with the brakes, close the throttle and apply the front and rear brakes evenly... As the motorcycle slows, either disengage the clutch or downshift each time your speed reaches a downshift point... Applying slightly more front brake than rear brake generally gives you the best braking performance... Do not apply the brakes so forcefully or quickly that either wheel stops rotating... Leave sufficient distance so you can apply the brakes gradually if you need to stop...

Page 75

OPERATION Stopping the Engine Before stopping the engine, bring the motorcycle to a complete stop either in neutral or with the clutch disengaged... Once the motorcycle is at a complete stop, if it is not already in neutral, shift into neutral... To stop the engine, set the engine stop/run switch to the STOP position, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and remove the ignition key...

Page 76

When parking the motorcycle, choose a flat, firm surface... Bring the motorcycle to a complete stop and, with the transmission in neutral, stop the engine... Fully extend the sidestand, turn the handlebars to the left, and lean the motorcycle to the left until the sidestand firmly supports the motorcycle... Take the key with you...

Page 77

A hot engine or hot exhaust pipes can be hazardous... The engine and exhaust pipes are hot for some time after the engine is stopped... Touching the engine or exhaust pipes while hot can cause serious burns... Allowing flammable materials to contact a hot engine or exhaust pipes may cause a fire... Park the motorcycle where people will not touch the engine or exhaust pipes and where it is not near flammable materials...

Page 78

MAINTENANCE This section includes information for maintaining your VICTORY motorcycle... It includes the Periodic Maintenance Interval tables, a guide to keeping your motorcycle in the best operating condition... Regular service increases the durability, safety, and dependability of your motorcycle, and it provides maximum ride comfort and service life... Also refer to the safety-related maintenance information beginning on page 20...

Page 79

MAINTENANCE Initial Maintenance Perform the initial maintenance after youve ridden your new motorcycle 500 miles (800 kilometers)... This maintenance is one of the most important services your motorcycle requires and should be performed by an authorized VICTORY dealer... Initial maintenance includes servicing all adjustments, tightening all fasteners, and changing engine oil... Performing this maintenance at the required mileage point helps the engine maintain top performance for its entire service life...

3... With the engine at normal operating temperature, straddle the motorcycle on level ground and bring it to a vertical position... Remove the oil fill cap and wipe the dipstick clean... Reinstall the dipstick and turn the cap clockwise until it seats...

Page 88

2... To remove loose debris from the element, use low-pressure air and blow from the rear forward... Replace the air filter element if it is extremely dirty or contaminated, and at the service interval recommended on page 77...

Page 89

MAINTENANCE Drive Belt Check Drive Belt Condition Replace the drive belt if it is cracked or has broken teeth or frayed edges... No matter its condition, the drive belt should be replaced at periodic intervals (see theVICTORYServiceManual or an authorizedVICTORYdealer)... DONOT attempt to check belt tension if the belt has been exposed to rain or washing within a 24 hour period or if the belt is hot from riding... Allow the belt to cool down to ambient temperature before measuring belt tension... To obtain the maximum drive belt service life possible, Victory recommends the replacement of both sprockets as a set if the drive belt system has over 5,000 miles (8,000 km) of service at the time of damage or failure...

Page 90

4... Place the base of the tension gauge bracket squarely against the lower strand of the drive belt halfway between the front and rear drive sprockets... Use the tape measure or ruler and record the position of the base of the tension gauge bracket... This position represents zero force...

Page 91

Notice Before adjusting drive belt tension, inspect wheel align- ment... (See Align Rear Wheel, page 89 - 90)... 1... Loosen the rear axle nut (A) on the left end of the rear axle... 2... Loosen lock nut (B) on both the left and right axle adjusters... 3... Turn axle adjusters (C) on each adjuster with an 8mm hex tool

Page 92

3... The axle adjusters (1) are stamped with marks (2) that are used as a reference to ensure proper wheel alignment... Inspect the position of the same alignment mark on each axle adjuster in relation to the machined mark on each side of the swingarm (3)... The marks should be in the same position on both left and right sides of the wheel...

Page 93

NOTE: If adjuster screws are turned out (counterclockwise) push the wheel and axle forward to be sure the end of adjuster screws are seated against the end of the swingarm before inspecting alignment or belt tension...

Page 94

Measure from the bracket to the end of left and right adjuster screws as shown... The measure- ment must be equal...

Page 95

MAINTENANCE Rear Suspension Inspect Rear Shock Absorber Pre-Load (Ride Height) This procedure involves using the shock absorber preload wrench PV-43507, a special spanner tool available from your dealer... The tool is designed specifically for adjusting shock spring preload on your motorcycle... Preload should be set with accurate load conditions before riding to ensure optimum handling, safety, and ride quality...

Page 136

Clean the motorcycle if it is dusty or muddy, or if it has picked up foreign material such as road salt, insects, oil, tar, or tree sap... If you ride in an area with salty or polluted air, wash your motorcycle frequently...

Page 137

CLEANING Washing and Drying the Motorcycle Before washing the motorcycle, make sure the exhaust pipes are not hot... Cover each exhaust pipe opening with a plastic bag and attach the bag to the pipe with a strong rubber band...

Page 139

CLEANING Waxing, Polishing and Applying Protectants (Items Other Than Windshields and Leather Saddlebags) After washing and drying the motorcycle, you can help extend the life and appearance of its components by waxing painted surfaces, polishing chrome surfaces, and applying a protectant to exposed rubber, vinyl, and plastic parts... Avoid cleaning-waxing compounds, as they may contain abrasives that may damage the finish of painted parts... For chrome surfaces, use either a window-cleaning solution or a polish specifically designed for chrome... Follow manufacturers instructions for proper application and use of wax, polish, or protectants...

Page 140

Wash the windshield using a soft cloth or sponge soaked in a solution of mild detergent and warm water, applying minimal pressure as you wash... Let the detergent do the cleaning, not the pressure you apply... Excessive washing pressure may cause dirt, sand, or other foreign materials on the windshield to scratch it... Soak the cloth or sponge in the detergent and water solution frequently to provide plenty of soapy water for washing, and keep the cloth or sponge clean by rinsing it frequently...

Page 141

Caring for natural leather is similar to caring for your own skin... To prevent leather from becoming hard and dry, occasionally apply a leather conditioner...
