I'm wondering if thisexplains the reason asto why the Digital Wrench program for the 2009 models do not include the mapping for the S1 L1 exhausts forALL models?
Since Victory does not release individual sales numbers per model, we now know that at least 2,444, 08 Visions were manufactured.
Also, I'm guessing that the Marchignition recall was not the final cure for the stalling issues. While I experienced the stalling issue a few times prior to the ignition recall, I have experienced it only twice since then. Hopefully, they will get it right this time.

Has anyone received any information about this recall? I just contacted my dealer and they have zero info. Since it was due to be released on or around September 15th, I'm starting to wonder what's causing the delay.
