I've been told that if you go with a full synth. oil it will help that out some. I haven't tried it yet myself. But for the most part this is just a Victory trait.
I asked one of the guys that takes the demo trucks around with all of the bikes about them shifting hard and I thought he summed it up pretty well. He said, Yes, our bikes may shift a little harder then others but they never break down. Couldn't argue with him on that point.

Ditto on the oil change due date relating to the tranny shift. Both my Vegas and my Nomad have a shared crankcase/tranny and when the oil is about 500 miles due to be changed it gets a little harder to move the lever and find neutral.

Mine broke down for the second time. First time 4th gear had teeth broken. Now it's locked up in two gears. Loved everything about the bike until now.
