    Interesting thread. With the thought of future value of these bikes (I do think they will become collectible) I would not buy one without it. Many people and dealers do not realize the value of this option and what it adds to the bikes value. It is relatively simple and if it does not work it is not hard to fix. I think it works great. It can be a pain to work around when doing maintenance but it is a god send to my wife who can ride the bike but backing it up is not too easy at 5'3". Maybe I don't want to promote it too much because I will eventually be buying everyone I can find.

    HMD520 has pulled a few off. They usually list them on FB for $2500.

    Vicwrecks on FB may come across one?

    So, HMD520 is asking $1K more for a used reverse kit than what they sold for new? Good information, and another reason I wouldn’t buy anything from HMD520. I’m a capitalist and agree they can ask what they want. I can also choose to spend my money where I want to.

    It ‘may’ be easier to piece together the parts needed for a reverse system as finding a complete and fully functioning setup could take a long time.

    Seen multiple sell for that price. It's not just HMD that is the going rate for unicorns.

    If had the wiring harness & bracket the motor is just a starter that can be cross referenced & bought cheap. Is a lot of if’s & butts but is possible.

    My Goldwing had reverse and it got me out of a few tight spots and it worked great. Im very careful where I park the Vision. I made a wrong turn a while back ended up on a gravel driveway downhill. It took me 20 min of rocking back and forth holding the brake to get the beast turned enough to pull out. I was soaked in sweat after that ordeal.

    @BrotherWind not sure if you are reading this thread or not. Did you get your question answered on your reverse?

    I'm taking her to dealer. Can't find the info needed so I'll have them do it and then I'll see for myself next time. Only an hour labor. Amazes me that my shop manual doesn't show at all. Hope you're doing ok. Ride on brother...

    I think I have a PDF of the Reverse Kit installation manual if you need it. It lists all the pieces included in the 'kit' along with their part number. That's why I posted earlier it 'may' be possible to purchase the parts to make your own 'kit', I don't know that for sure as I haven't tried it. I purchased a used reverse kit years ago and sold it about 2 years ago after never installing it.

    Very few dealers ever installed one of these kits and fewer now may have more knowledge than you.

    Ok, here's the bad news for the Reverse Kit PN: 2878073 ,2010 to current Cross Country

    Reverse Drive Motor / Control Unit, 1016296, NLA (this appears to be the whole kit?)

    Drive Gear Assembly w/Case, 1203726, NLA (without these parts, you have no reverse option. This appears to be the motor, the u-joint, the linkage, the supporting case, the switch and all the associated parts)

    The rest of the items at least show as available at places like VictoryParts.net

    There are two sets of Instructions:
    9922726, no part found, but maybe this could be a supplement to the Service Manual
    and
    9922820, no part found, but maybe this could be a supplement to the Service Manual

    Pages 19.25 to 19.28 in the Service Manual cover: Reverse System testing and troubleshooting.

    All the best to you,

    Hi everybody and regards from Spain. I've read many different oppinions for and against Reverse on our Visions. Most of the negative oppinions are of VV owners that haven't it. I have it on my 2010 VV. I can definetivelt recommend it. The day you're alone, its hot in summer and the only parking opportunity is in a slope...thats the moment you're happy about this extra. Of course it's slow, but in my case, it always worked fine and avoided having trouble moving the bike in critic situations. It's definetively an extra worth having.

    Works great but is a little slow. Sometime in your journeys you'll find a need for it. Kinda pricey but that's bykin.

    I have a reverse kit on my '13 XCT that I never use and have considered selling. I recently looked into having it removed by the Indian dealer where I bought the bike and they quoted me a total of around $950. But, that includes the stock sprocket cover and gasket that I don't have. I'd love to find someone that wanted to buy the kit and would trade their stock cover, etc...
