      Hello Monkeyman,

      I have been reading the post and you seem to be a pretty knowledgeable guy so I would like get your opinion on a problem I am having. I am in need of some assistance. I took my bike to the shop to have the belt adjusted and once the tech took the bike down from the lift, he had a very hard time getting it to start. Well, after the bike started running, I am constantly hearing a strange sound like water going down the bath tub drain coming from one of my gas tanks. Have you experienced such a thing and if so, how do I fix it? The sound is annoying.

      Thank you,

      I had a 2008 Vision just like yours (same color). I now have an XR.

        I like the fairing and gizmos that come with the Vision. If I wanted another bagger (without a fairing), I'd probably get a XR. (BTW, the '12 was the only year for the Bronze Mist/Saddlestone Metallic. Not sure what colors were available in '08.)

        Glad to help. I couldn't find them at first, either.

      Go **** yourself and learn to think before you speak, or perhaps God didn't give you a brain?

      FYI-Insert panel to replace trunk

      The panel color will be whatever color is between your taillights.
      Mine happens to be black.
      I paid $100 which actually was deducted from the $1,000 accessory credit I got for test riding a Victory.

        Yup. Wish I'd thought about this when I bought the bike. I could have used the same money.

      Hey Chris,
      Hope you have been able to log a few miles with some of the semi-decent weather we've been getting. I have not because I'm finishing-up some mods and didn't want to rush it.

      I finally remembered the name of that run I mentioned some time ago, The Moonshine Lunch Run. It's in Moonshine, IN... have you done it before?

      April 12th-14th but it looks like you could do a day and be satisfied. I'm thinking about pulling my pop-up and staying in one of the campgrounds for one night.

        Grand total of 77 miles this year. Either it's snowing, raining or cold. Spring will never be here.

      Hey Chris,

      When you have a chance, take a look at my newest thread about the Ram Ball. I know you have mounted one and want to know if you had the same issue.
      Thanks,
      Jim

      Can I assume that you were able to get a set of the tip-over mounted pegs made by the guy who refuses to answer my emails?
      1. Monkeyman
        Monkeyman
        Yeah. I forget how much they were but I'm thinking just north of $100. I'm still waiting on better pics before I order a set.
