They've made their money off of you........now, go away.
I wasn't ever able to get my speedo unlocked (which would be nice), but I did add the Polaris Outside Air Temp kit #2875949, I got it off amazon a few years ago for around $15, I think it was meant for SxS or snomobiles. But, After plugging it in (fits, and pugs into a spot in the headlight assembly) it unlocked a new screen and gave me OAT. Worth a shot if you can find one, it now shows unavailable from the seller I got it off Amazon though.mo pics needed mark, mo' pics puhlease!!!!
And more Grunt too!They handle dirt roads surprisingly well, with the long travel suspension making it surprisingly comfortable while doing so. The Hard Ball bars brings your weight forward, and also let's you stand up on the floor boards for better control in sand. And if you stuff it up and drop it, the crash protection is very well engineered. Hard Balls have the extra advantage of having an easy to touch up paint job.
Foolaris would love it if all Victory's disappeared into a black hole or dissolved into the ether.Crockett Powersports called today with an update on unlocking the Hard-Ball (Cross Roads) speedometer.
“Polaris no longer supports or offers this service.”
I asked them if I had a calibration card for Tri Ovals would they be able to download that fuel map. The answer was ‘I think so’. I’m not sure if that’s the case or not. Why would Polaris still allow a new fuel map download when they stopped a speedometer upgrade download.
What a-holes Polaris is run by. All they had to do with Victory is basically nothing. Yet they chose, and continue to choose, to hurt the brand on many levels. Creeps!
I never understood why Polaris locked some of the features anyway. If you do not have the optional kit installed it would not work and when installed, it would. My thinking. Hope it works for you.@541RF, I may have two options regarding unlocking the speedometer. Yesterday Inge gave me the names and numbers of 3 dealers the Polaris parts system showed have the speedometer unlocking card with code in stock. Like the Tri Ovals calibration card, the speedometer unlocking option requires a calibration card with a numerical code. I haven’t called any of those dealers yet but I’ll do so today.
Secondly, it’s been reported on this forum where plugging in the temperature sensor probe, (short wiring harness) in the headlight bucket connector may unlock the additional speedometer features. But I’m not sure about that. The temperature probe for the CR uses the same item number as the temperature probe used in the CCT fairing for the same function.
When I was at my local dealer last week with the Hard-Ball connected to their Digital Wrench, all that was needed was a numerical code for the technician to enter. If I had one, I suspect it would have worked.
My local dealer told me Polaris no longer offers that service. Which is true, they no longer offer new calibration cards with new code numbers to unlock the CR speedometer features. I never thought about seeing if any other dealers had those calibration cards in stock. Unlocking the additional CR speedometer features was a $50 charge.
My spoked rear wheel has 2 holes for valve stems, one fitted with a rubber bung. When I got the rim sealed they swapped the in use hole to the one on the right side.Tonight I was able to install the all black Tri Ovals, change out the 1/4 turn Zeus saddlebag fittings for a bolt and a clip on nut, install the passenger hold on strap I removed from my CCT years ago as well as replace the brake and shifter pegs for some black billet ones I had in my toolbox. The shifter toe peg came off ok but I had to cut off the rubber and use vise grips to remove the brake toe peg.
As usual, the right oem muffler came off without much effort. Not so lucky on the left side. I had to use a lot of Liquid Wrench penetrating oil over a couple of hours for it to finally break free.
I also removed the headlight cover so I could locate the expected connections for the oem heated grips I’ll install as well as a set of driving lights. The connection is under the seat for an oem CCT heated seat option but I don’t have one of those yet either.
Tomorrow I’ll finally remove the tank to change the fuel filter, the air filter and do a general cleaning under there.
I didn’t replace the exhaust covers just before each muffler as I’ll drop them off tomorrow at a local powder coater.
I think perhaps whoever built the spoked wheels for Polaris turned the rear rim around. The tube air valve is on the left of the rim. Not in the center like the front and not on the right side. It would be easier to check and adjust the rear tire air pressure if the tube valve was on the right side. Oh well, I’ll get a FOBO Bike 2 for this bike as well as replace the rear spoked wheel for a cast wheel once I get one.
