Congratulations on your choice. CCT is the best bike I've ever ridden. Cams and tune add to the fun. You will find yourself saying to yourself every time you take it out how much you really enjoy riding the thing. I still do.
Welcome to the O.F.C. Settle in and join the talk. Just watch out for the smarta$$. I won't tell you who I, I mean who he is. :biggrin:

Greetings @Raptor727
Congratulations on your new-to-you Victory!

Below is some unsolicited and probably unwanted information.
  1. Check and inspect the rubber parts for your fuel system. (Connections to tank specifically; and rubber-tipped, black plastic to air box (frame).)
  2. Check and tighten your battery cables every oil change. They do work loose, and loose battery cables cause all sorts of weird behavior.
  3. Check your clutch play when the bike is cold and again when warm. The fully engaged and disengaged zones are small. Adjust when cold.
  4. Here is a link to the IAC reset procedure: Check Engine light/IAC problem
  5. Here is a link to the TPS reset procedure: TPS reset procedure
  6. The WIX 51356XP oil filter is probably the most used filter for our bikes. Trusted places like TheVicShop use this filter.
  7. Oil Drain Plug Washers: 12mm ID x 19mm OD x 1.3mm thick - copper crush washers, you can get a bag of 25 from NAPA for $6.
  8. Vacuum out the airbox when checking/cleaning the air filter.
  9. Be advised that the fuel nipple on the bottom of the tank is plastic. When unclipping the fuel line from the tank, do not torque side to side to wiggle loose. Plastic breaks...
  10. NGK DCPR6E are the OEM plugs and have proven themselves to be the most reliable.
  11. Lyndall brakes are made in the US and are far better performers than other brands: All
  12. The drive belt should easily last 80k miles or more. (154T, 28MM #3211107) Replacement can be found here: Replacement belt for Victory Motorcycles-BDL SPC-154-118
  13. The fuel pump and voltage regulator can be had from aftermarket suppliers.
  14. OEM fuel filters are hard to find. QFS Fuel Pump Strainer Only (QTY 3) Fits: Victory Cross Country / Touring 2013-2023 These are aftermarkets that can be made to work. (HFP-S20-3 (quantum) + 1” of 15/32 fuel line)
  15. Check to see if there are any uncompleted recalls: VIN Search | Polaris Sportsman or Recalls | NHTSA.
  16. A lot of people keep a spare 40 AMP circuit breaker. "40amp Napa Circuit Breaker, #782-3041 or #782-3116" (The difference is the mount bracket)
  17. Lloyd’z Air Filter for Cross bikes is a common upgrade: Lloyd’z: XC/XR High-Flow Air Filter | LLOYD'Z Motor Workz
  18. Rylan (VicBuilder) at TheVicShop has maps and excellent advice if your bike has a PCV fuel controller. An add-on Fuel Controller will most likely be behind the left side (shifter side) cover. TVS also has a large collection of YouTube videos on servicing VICs.
  19. The Lloyd’s timing wheel is a very popular upgrade. Check the gasket around the right-side engine case cover. A factory gasket is nearly flush with the case and cover. The Lloyd’z gasket is thicker, firmer, and sticks up a bit, you can feel it.
  20. Noe Martinez (noemtz) will perform remote MAXIMUS tunes. The MAXIMUS tune can adjust things that a PCV cannot. And without leaving an extra dangling bit on the side of your ride! Note: The Lloyd’z timing wheel is not needed with a Maximus tune. The timing wheel is very beneficial with PCV or by itself.
  21. CrossCountryLA is a wizard with Victory Exhaust systems, known as Ragin Cajun’s.
  22. Cross bikes Side Cover Grommets: NAPA part# NW784633
  23. Brass brake and shifter lever bushings: $12 https://www.amazon.com/CICMOD-Bushi...fix=victory+brass+bushing,aps,119&sr=8-3&th=1
  24. Clean and lube the clutch cable ends and the pin in the clutch perch at every oil change. Just the ends, the cable is lined don't put any lube down it.
  25. Download the manuals from: MediaFire
With proper maintenance these machines just keep going.

Ride Safe,
Smokier
