Wow! I can't imagine the bulb going so quickly. Are you sure that is the problem? I'm thinking about chroming the inner fairing piece that goes underneath the emblem, so, hopefully, it is not too complicated!!! (Not sure the chrome is worth $400). I'd check with your dealer, because I'm sure Victory has some culpability on a new bike's systems. I had an XM radio issue on my 2008 and they took care of it as a no-cost warranty item. At any rate, good luck!
