Safety
Safe Riding Practices
WARNING
Improper use of this motorcycle can result in serious injury or death to you, your passenger and others.
To minimize the risk of injury, read and understand the information contained in this section before
operating the motorcycle. This section contains safety information specific to the VICTORY motorcycle,
as well as information about general motorcycle safety. Anyone who rides the motorcycle (operators
and passengers) must follow these safety precautions.
Motorcycling has inherent risks.
You can minimize those risks, but you can't eliminate them completely. Even if you're an
experienced motorcycle operator or passenger, read all of the safety information in this manual before operating the motorcycle.
• Take a rider education course from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation or another qualified
instructor. The course will help you develop or refresh your expertise in safe riding habits
through instruction and riding. For information on Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider
education courses in your area, call 1-800-446-9227 or visit their web site at www.msfusa.org.
• Read and understand all information in this rider’s manual.
• Observe all maintenance requirements specified in this manual. For assistance, see the
VICTORY Service Manual or your authorized VICTORY dealer.
Design characteristics affect how you should ride the VICTORY motorcycle:
• The motorcycle is designed for on-road use with one rider and one passenger. See the
manufacturer’s label (on the left side of the frame at the steering head). The label contains
the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) information. Never exceed the GVWR or the GAWR.
• Riding off-road, riding with more than one passenger, or carrying weight exceeding the
maximum weight rating can make handling difficult, which could cause loss of control.
• During the first 500 miles (800 km) of operation, follow all break-in procedures as outlined in the break-in section beginning on page 46. Failure to do so can result in serious
engine damage.
• Some VICTORY motorcycles include saddlebags, a windshield, a trunk, luggage racks or
a passenger backrest as standard equipment. To maintain stability, be prepared to reduce
the operating speed of motorcycles equipped with these items.
8
Safety
Safe Riding Practices
Follow these general safe riding practices:
• Before each ride, perform the pre-ride inspections as outlined beginning on page 38. Failure to do so may result in damage to the motorcycle or an accident.
• Until you're thoroughly familiar with the motorcycle and all of its controls, practice riding
where there is little or no traffic. Practice riding at a moderate speed on various road surfaces and in different weather conditions.
• Know your skills and limits, and ride within them.
• Allow only licensed, experienced operators to ride your motorcycle, and then only after
they have become familiar with its controls and operation. Make sure all riders read and
understand this rider’s manual before riding.
• Do not ride when you're fatigued, ill or under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs,
over-the-counter drugs or any other drugs. Fatigue, illness, alcohol and drugs can cause
drowsiness, loss of coordination and loss of balance. They can also affect your awareness
and judgment.
• If your motorcycle operates abnormally, correct the problem immediately. See the VICTORY Service Manual or an authorized VICTORY dealer.
• Ride defensively, as if you are invisible to other motorists, even in broad daylight. A
motorist's failure to see or recognize a motorcycle is the leading cause of automobile/
motorcycle accidents. Ride where you're clearly visible to other motorists, and observe
their behavior carefully.
• Be especially cautious at intersections, as these are the most likely places for an accident.
• To prevent loss of control, keep your hands on the handlebars and your feet on the footrests.
• Be aware that the highway bar is not designed to protect the rider from injury in a collision.
• Do not move or operate the motorcycle with the steering locked (if equipped), as the
severely restricted steering could result in loss of control.
• Obey the speed limit and adjust your speed and riding technique based on road, weather
and traffic conditions. As you travel faster, the influence of all other conditions increases,
which can affect the motorcycle's stability and increase the possibility of losing control.
9
Safety
Safe Riding Practices
• Reduce speed when:
•
•
•
•
the road has potholes, or is otherwise rough or uneven.
the road contains sand, dirt, gravel or other loose substances.
the road is wet, icy or oily.
the road contains painted surfaces, manhole covers, metal grating, railway crossings or other
slippery surfaces.
• The weather is windy, rainy or otherwise causing slippery or rapidly changing conditions.
• Traffic is heavy, congested, not allowing sufficient space between vehicles or otherwise not flowing smoothly.
• You are being passed in either direction by a large vehicle that may produce a wind blast in its
wake.
• To maximize braking effectiveness, use the front and rear brakes together. Be aware of the
following braking facts and practices:
• The rear brake provides 40% of the motorcycle's stopping power, at most. Use the front and rear
brakes together.
• To avoid skidding, apply the brakes gradually when the road is wet or rough, or contains loose or
other slippery substances.
• If possible, avoid applying the brakes while making a turn. Motorcycle tires have less traction
during turns, so braking will increase the possibility of skidding. Bring the motorcycle to the
upright position before applying the brakes.
• When approaching a curve, choose a speed and lean angle that allows you to pass through
the curve in your own lane without applying the brakes. Excessive speed, improper lean
angle or braking in a curve can cause loss of control.
• Ground clearance is reduced when the motorcycle leans. Do not allow components to contact the road surface when leaning the motorcycle in a curve, as this could cause loss of
control.
• Retract the sidestand fully before riding. If the sidestand is not fully retracted, it could contact the road surface and cause loss of control.
• Do not tow a trailer. Towing a trailer can make the motorcycle hard to handle.
Anti-Lock Brake System Response
• When the anti-lock brakes engage during a braking event, the rider will feel pulsing at the
brake levers. Continue to apply steady pressure to the brakes for the best stopping performance.
10
Safety
Safe Riding Practices
Carrying a Passenger
Do not carry a passenger unless the motorcycle is equipped with passenger seat and passenger footrests.
To carry a passenger safely:
• Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your motorcycle. See the manufacturer’s label (on the left side of the frame at the steering head).
• Direct the passenger to hold onto you or to the passenger hand grips with both hands and
to keep both feet on the passenger footrests. Do not carry a passenger who cannot place
both feet firmly on the passenger footrests. A passenger who is not holding on properly, or
who cannot reach the passenger footrests, can shift their body erratically, which can make
the motorcycle hard to handle and cause loss of control.
• To obtain the best ride and handling characteristics, adjust the rear shock absorber air pressure. See page 68.
• Before riding, be sure your passenger knows safe riding procedures. Discuss any safety
information unfamiliar to your passenger. A passenger who is unaware of safe riding procedures may distract you or make movements that make the motorcycle hard to handle.
• Adjust your riding style to compensate for the differences in handling, acceleration and
braking caused by the additional weight of the passenger. Failure to do so can cause loss of
control.
Protective Apparel
Wear protective apparel to decrease the risk of injury and increase riding comfort.
• Always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards. Approved helmets in the USA and Canada bear a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) label. Laws
in some areas require that you wear an approved helmet. Head injuries are the leading
cause of fatalities in accidents involving motorcycles. Statistics prove that an approved
helmet is the most effective protection in preventing or reducing head injuries.
• Wear eye protection to protect eyes from wind or airborne particles and objects. Laws in
some areas require that you wear eye protection. VICTORY recommends that you wear
approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8,
Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eyewear is kept clean.
• All riders should wear bright or light-colored and/or reflective clothing to improve visibility to other motorists. A motorist's failure to see or recognize a motorcycle is the leading
cause of automobile/motorcycle accidents.
• Wear gloves, a jacket, heavy boots and long pants to prevent or reduce injury from abrasions, lacerations or burns should the motorcycle fall. Wear boots with low heels, as high
heels can catch on pedals or footrests. The combination of boots and pants should completely cover legs, ankles and feet, protecting skin from engine and exhaust system heat.
• Do not wear loose, flowing clothing or long boot laces, as they can catch on handlebars,
levers or footrests, or they can become entangled in the wheels, causing loss of control and
serious injury.
11
Safety
Use of Accessories
Because VICTORY cannot test and make specific recommendations concerning every accessory or combination of accessories sold, the operator is responsible for determining that the
motorcycle can be safely operated with any accessories or additional weight. Use the following guidelines when choosing and installing accessories:
• Do not install accessories that impair the stability, handling or operation of the motorcycle
or operator visibility. Before installing an accessory, be sure that it does not:
•
•
•
•
Reduce ground clearance when the motorcycle is either leaned or in a vertical position.
Limit suspension or steering travel or your ability to operate controls.
Displace you from your normal riding position.
Obscure lights or reflectors.
• Bulky or large accessories can cause instability (due to the lifting or buffeting effects of
wind) and loss of control.
• Do not install electrical accessories that exceed the capacity of the motorcycle’s electrical
system. Never install higher wattage light bulbs than those supplied as original equipment.
An electrical failure could result and cause hazardous loss of engine power or lights, or
damage to the electrical system. See page 87.
• Use only genuine VICTORY accessories designed for your model.
Modifications
Modifying the motorcycle by removing any equipment or by adding equipment not approved
by VICTORY may void your warranty. Such modifications could make the motorcycle
unsafe to ride and could result in severe injury to operator or passengers, as well as damage
to the motorcycle. Some modifications may not be legal in your area of operation. If in
doubt, contact your authorized VICTORY dealer.
Parking the Motorcycle
When leaving the motorcycle unattended, turn the engine off. Remove the ignition key to
prevent unauthorized use by minors or those without proper motorcycle certification and
training.
Park the motorcycle where people are not likely to touch the hot engine or exhaust system or
place combustible materials near these hot areas. Do not park near a flammable source such
as a kerosene heater or an open flame, where hot components could ignite combustible materials.
Park the motorcycle on a firm, level surface. Sloped or soft surfaces may not support the
motorcycle. If you must park on a slope or soft surface, follow the precautions outlined on
page 53.
12
Safety
Carrying Cargo
Use the following guidelines when attaching cargo or accessories to the motorcycle. Where
applicable, these guidelines also refer to the contents of any accessories.
• Keep cargo and accessory weight to a minimum, and keep items as close to the motorcycle
as possible to minimize a change in the motorcycle’s center of gravity. Changing the center of gravity can cause loss of stability and handling and could cause loss of control.
• Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the motorcycle. Maintain even weight distribution by checking accessories and cargo to make sure they’re securely attached to the
motorcycle before riding and whenever you take a break from riding. Uneven weight distribution, or accessories or cargo that shift suddenly while you’re riding can make the
motorcycle hard to handle, can cause loss of control, or cargo could fall from the motorcycle creating a hazard for surrounding vehicles.
• Do not attach large or heavy cargo such as sleeping bags, duffel bags or tents to the handlebars, front fork area or front fender. Cargo or accessories placed in these areas can
cause instability (due to improper weight distribution or aerodynamic changes) and could
cause loss of control. Such items can also block air flow to the engine and cause overheating that can damage the engine.
• Do not exceed the maximum cargo weight limit of any accessory (see accessory instructions and labels). Do not attach cargo to an accessory not designed for that purpose. Either
circumstance could result in an accessory failure that could cause loss of control.
• Do not attach anything to the motorcycle unless specifically designed for that purpose by
VICTORY.
Saddlebags, Trunk (if equipped), Luggage Racks (if equipped)
WARNING! Operating this vehicle without saddlebags could result in severe injury or death. Never
operate this vehicle if the saddlebags are not in place and properly secured.
Whenever operating a motorcycle with saddlebags:
• Never ride at excessive speeds. Saddlebags, combined with the lifting or buffeting effects
of wind, can make the motorcycle unstable and cause loss of control.
• Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the motorcycle.
• Do not exceed the maximum cargo weight limit of any saddlebag, luggage rack or trunk.
A weight capacity label is attached to these components for reference.
• NEVER EXCEED GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING (GVWR) or the GROSS
AXLE WEIGHT RATING (GAWR), regardless of whether or not the saddlebags, racks
and/or trunk are loaded to capacity. Exceeding the weight rating can reduce stability and
handling and cause loss of control.
13
Safety
Transporting the Motorcycle
If you must transport the motorcycle:
• Use a truck or trailer. Do not tow the motorcycle
with another vehicle, as towing will impair the
motorcycle's steering and handling.
• Position and restrain the motorcycle so it remains
upright on the truck or trailer. If the motorcycle
leans to one side, gasoline may leak from the fuel
tank and result in a fire hazard or damage to the finish.
• Do not restrain the motorcycle using the handlebars.
• Place tiedown straps around the fork tubes above
the lower triple clamp. Place tiedowns as wide apart
as possible on the truck or trailer bed for best stability.
To lower triple clamp
(one tiedown each side)
To swing arm
(one tiedown each side)
Fuel and Exhaust Safety
Always heed these fuel safety warnings when refueling or servicing the fuel system. For
fueling procedures, see page 47.
WARNING
Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive under certain conditions.
• Always exercise extreme caution whenever handling gasoline.
• Always turn off the engine before refueling.
• Always refuel outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
• Open the fuel cap slowly. Do not overfill the tank. Do not fill the tank neck.
• Do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks in or near the area where refueling is performed or
where gasoline is stored.
Gasoline and gasoline vapors are poisonous and can cause severe injury.
• Do not swallow gasoline, inhale gasoline vapors, or spill gasoline. If you swallow gasoline, inhale
more than a few breaths of gasoline vapor, or get gasoline in your eyes, see a physician
immediately.
• If gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash it off with soap and water and change
clothing.
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can cause loss of
consciousness or death in a short time.
• Never start the engine or let it run in an enclosed area.
• Never inhale exhaust gases.

United Nations ECE regulation 10 and Canadian ICES-002.
15
Safety
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)
WARNING! Exceeding the gross vehicle weight rating of your motorcycle can reduce stability and handling and could cause loss of control. NEVER exceed the GVWR of your motorcycle.
The maximum load capacity of your motorcycle is the maximum weight you may add to
your motorcycle without exceeding the GVWR. This capacity is determined by calculating
the difference between your motorcycle’s GVWR and wet weight.
Refer to the specification section beginning on page 103 or the Manufacturing Information/
VIN label on the motorcycle frame for model-specific information. See page 17.
When determining the weight you will be adding to your motorcycle, and to ensure you do
not exceed the maximum load capacity, include the following:
• operator body weight
• passenger body weight
• weight of all riders’ apparel and items in or on apparel
• weight of any accessories and their contents
• weight of any additional cargo on the motorcycle

Instruments, Features and Controls
Brakes
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) (if equipped)
The anti-lock brake system automatically reduces or increases brake pressure as needed to
provide optimum braking control, reducing the chance of wheel lock-up during hard braking
events or when braking on rough, uneven, slippery or loose surfaces. See page 10.
• The anti-lock brake system cannot be turned off.
• The ABS indicator always illuminates when the key is in the ON or PARK position and
remains on until the anti-lock system activates, which occurs when vehicle speed exceeds
6 MPH (10 km/h).
• When the lamp is illuminated, the anti-lock brakes will not activate, but the conventional
brake system will continue to operate normally.
• When the anti-lock brakes engage during a braking event, the rider will feel pulsing at the
brake levers. Continue to apply steady pressure to the brakes for the best stopping performance.
• If the ABS light does not come on when the key is turned to the ON or PARK position, see
your authorized VICTORY dealer for service.
• If the lamp continues to illuminate after vehicle speed exceeds 6 MPH (10 km/h), the ABS
system is not functioning. See your VICTORY dealer promptly for service.
• Operating with non-recommended tires or improper tire pressure may reduce the effectiveness of the anti-lock brake system. Always use the recommended size and type of tires
specified for your vehicle. Always maintain the recommended tire pressure.
• The anti-lock brake system will not prevent wheel lockup, loss of traction or loss of control under all conditions. Always adhere to all safe motorcycle-riding practices as recommended.
• It is not unusual to leave tire marks on the road surface during a hard braking event.
• The anti-lock brake system does not compensate for or reduce the risks associated with:

Maintenance
Rear Suspension Adjustment
For riding comfort and to ensure proper ground clearShock Label
ance, adjust rear shock air pressure as specified on the
label located in the right saddlebag cover (reproduced
below).
Follow these guidelines when adjusting:
• Park the motorcycle with the sidestand down on a
firm, level surface. Remove all riders and cargo.
• DO NOT exceed 72 PSI (496 kPa) in the shock.
• Use the VICTORY Air Pump and Gauge (P/N
2876654). Follow the instructions on the following
pages.
If the VICTORY air pump and gauge are not available, use the gauge provided in the tool kit,
and a pressurized air source with a maximum line pressure of 72 PSI (496 kPa). After using
this gauge, remove it quickly to minimize leakage. Expect to lose about 4 PSI (27.6 kPa)
with each pressure check when using this gauge. Use only a dry air source, such as a system
with a water separator or air line dryer, to prevent moisture from entering the shock.
CAUTION! Air pressure increases VERY quickly when using pressurized air. Wear eye and face
protection.

Using the wrong fluid or allowing air or contaminants into the fluid system can damage the system
seals or result in a malfunction that could lead to serious injury or death. Use only DOT 4 brake fluid
from a sealed container.
Do not operate the front brake with the reservoir cover removed. Fluid could overflow from the reservoir
and allow air to enter the system. Air in the brake system could cause the brakes to malfunction.
An over-full reservoir may cause brake drag or brake lock-up, which could result in serious injury or
death. Maintain brake fluid at the recommended level. Do not overfill.
NOTICE: Brake fluid will damage painted surfaces and plastic parts. Always clean spilled brake fluid
immediately with water and a mild detergent.
Rear Brake Fluid
1. Position the motorcycle on level ground in the fully
upright position.
2. The rear brake fluid reservoir is located near the rear
brake pedal, just inside the right lower leg fairing. Wipe
the fluid container and the area around the reservoir
cover with a clean cloth.
3. If the fluid level is low, inspect brake pads as outlined on
page 43. If pads are not worn beyond the service limit,
inspect the brake system for leaks.
4. To add fluid, remove the reservoir cover. Carefully add
fluid to the recommended level. Do not overfill.
5. Reinstall the cover and diaphragm.

Washing the Motorcycle
NOTICE: Do not use pressurized water to wash the motorcycle. Water may seep in and deteriorate
wheel bearings, brake caliper assemblies, brake master cylinders, electrical connectors,
steering head bearings, and transmission seals. Do not direct any water stream at air
intakes, exhaust outlets or electrical connectors.
Electrical components may be damaged by water. Do not allow water to contact electrical
components or connectors.
Do not use glass cleaners, water or soil repellents, and petroleum or alcohol based cleaners
on the windshield, as these products can damage the windshield.
1. Before washing, make sure exhaust pipes are cool. Cover each pipe opening with a plastic bag secured with a strong rubber band. Check that the spark plugs, spark plug wire
caps, oil fill cap and fuel caps are properly seated.
2. Rinse off as much dirt and mud as possible with water running at low pressure. Use as
little water as possible when washing near the air cleaner or the exhaust pipe openings.
Dry these components thoroughly before using the motorcycle.
3. Clean the front fork tubes thoroughly to reduce fork seal wear and leakage.
4. After washing, remove the rubber bands and plastic bags from the exhaust pipes. Start
the engine and let it idle for a few minutes. Make sure the brakes are functioning properly before riding.

Washing the Motorcycle
There are two totally different styles of motorcycle washing and there is a Pure VICTORY
Polish product for each style.
Standard “Bucket Wash”
This is the conventional way to wash your motorcycle. We recommend the use of Pure VICTORY Bike Wash Concentrate, a concentrated gentle product formulated to clean without
diminishing the life of any durable polish. This product does not contain alkalis, acids or
abrasives and is formulated to perform as a wetting agent to soften bugs, road grime and soil,
and to prevent abrasion from your wash mitt or cloth. This product also decreases drying
time without spotting or streaking.
1. Add 1 ounce (about 2 capfuls) to 1 gallon of water.
2. Apply to a cool motorcycle with a wool or microfiber wash mitt.
Tip: For best results, work one side of the motorcycle at a time, working from top to bottom.
3. Rinse thoroughly with an open hose, no pressure needed. Create a sheeting action to
eliminate spotting.
4. Use a Pure VICTORY Microfiber Chamois or Plush Microfiber Towel to dry virtually
spot-free.
Spray-Rinse-and-Ride Wash
This is the new way to clean your VICTORY quickly and easily, then resume riding. Pure
VICTORY Spray Rinse and Ride bike wash is safe and will not harm any surface that water
won’t harm.
If you clean your bike frequently, you may mix this product 50/50 with water. Spray the
product on surfaces cool to the touch. DO NOT spray on a hot motorcycle. When applied,
this product softens dirt, soil, bugs and road grime.
1. Spray windshields, body panels, saddle bags, trunks, engines, tires, wheels, pipes and
chrome. Consistent and complete coverage of the motorcycle is important for best
results.
Tip: Use a cloth or wash mitt on stubborn areas.
2. DO NOT allow the product to dry on your motorcycle. Blast rinse with a garden hose
equipped with a pressure nozzle. Be sure to rinse thoroughly, then use a gentle rinse to
create sheeting action of the water to lessen the possibility of spotting. Use a Pure VICTORY Microfiber Chamois or Plush Microfiber Towel to dry virtually spot-free.

Quick Clean-Ups
For quick clean-ups between washings, or when water is not available, use Pure VICTORY
Spray & Wipe Instant Detailer, a complete spray-and-wipe product designed to clean and
polish all surfaces. It works quickly and easily and is silicone-free so it leaves no oily nor
white residue. It provides protection from UV rays, acid rain, and dirt. It will remove bugs,
road tar, and road grime from your windshield, paint and chrome. This product is safe for all
surfaces, including pin striping, custom paint or murals. It’s safe for Plexiglas, Lexan,
Acrylic or factory-coated windscreens. It’s non-streaking, and it provides polish protection
and a water-repellent shine.
1. Spray on all surfaces, including the windshield, paint, chrome, wheels and leather to
clean, polish and protect.
2. Wipe dry with Pure VICTORY Plush Microfiber Towel. DO NOT use a T-shirt.
3. Spray on and wipe off to easily remove bugs, dust and water spots. For heavily soiled
surfaces, use product more liberally.
Tip: Use this product on the windshield to repel water and enhance rain visibility.
Polishing the Motorcycle
Polished Aluminum Care
When a VICTORY is new, the polished aluminum wheels, hand levers and shifter shine like
chrome. Ultraviolet (UV) rays and oxidation will cause polished aluminum to grow dull,
however, if it’s not properly polished and protected.
Pure VICTORY Awesome Metal Polish will clean, polish and protect these aluminum surfaces. This metal polish will restore that factory chrome-like shine and leave a protective
coating that resists future oxidation for several months. Pure VICTORY Awesome Metal
Polish provides instant results you must see to believe!
1. Shake the polish container well before using.
2. Apply the product with a terry cotton or microfiber cloth or pad.
3. Rub gently until the black begins to come to the surface or until shine begins to show
through the haze.
4. Allow the product to haze.
5. Remove the haze with a terry cotton or microfiber cloth and buff to a long-lasting
chrome-like shine.
6. Do not polish the spokes on painted spoked wheels.

Polishing the Motorcycle
There are now two totally different styles of polishing or protecting your paint and chrome.
Standard Method of Polishing Paint and Chrome
Pure VICTORY Windshield, Paint and Chrome Polish is a unique formula designed to produce a glass-like shine on painted or clear-coated finishes and chrome surfaces.
• Use it on chrome-plated accessories to prevent surface rust and create a glass-like shine.
• This product creates a high reflective index point, giving a deep, shiny finish without silicone.
• Use it to polish and fill light scratches on Plexiglas, Lexan, Acrylic and factory-coated
windshields.
• It repels water from windshields and keeps bugs from sticking.
• Windshield, Paint and Chrome Polish provides long-lasting protection from oxidation,
corrosion, UV rays and heat.
Standard Method of Polishing Paint and Chrome
1. Shake the container well before using.
2. Apply with Pure VICTORY 100% Microfiber Wax Applicator in a circular motion or
straight line to a clean surface. It can be applied in direct sunlight.
3. Rub the product until it is almost clear, then allow to dry to a haze before removal. The
entire motorcycle can be treated before removing polish.
4. Use a Pure VICTORY Polishes Plush Microfiber Towel to wipe it off easily and dustfree.
5. For best results on a windshield, apply to a clean windshield. Once applied, rain water
beads and blows off, enhancing rain visibility. The glass-like finish keeps bugs from
sticking and permits their easy removal.

Polishing the Motorcycle
Premium Polishing for Long-Lasting Protection
This newer style of polishing paint and chrome utilizes the latest in high-quality polymer
technology that provides the longest-lasting protection available in the polish industry today.
Pure VICTORY Liquid Spray Wax for Windshields, Paint & Chrome is formulated for polishing after washing and can be sprayed on wet or dry surfaces. Liquid Spray Wax quickly
produces a durable, high-gloss shine with minimal effort. It contains NO ABRASIVES and
is clear coat-safe. It contains NO PETROLIUM DISTILLATES or SILICONES.
1. Shake container well before use.
2. Begin by washing and rinsing the motorcycle.
3. Spray Liquid Spray Wax on a wet or dry bike, one section at a time. (For best results, the
bike’s surface should be cool.)
4. Wipe dry one section at a time with Pure VICTORY Microfiber Chamois or microfiber
towel.
5. When finished drying, buff the entire motorcycle with a clean, dry Pure VICTORY
Microfiber Polishing Towel for a clean and luxurious shine.
Tip: Liquid Spray Wax can also be applied to clean and dry clear coats, windshields and chrome. Apply
to one section at a time and wipe dry. When finished, use a second towel to buff to a luxurious,
long-lasting shine.
Leather, Rubber and Vinyl Care
WARNING
Never use a non-recommended protectant on seats, footrests, hand grips or tires. Slippery seats,
footrests or hand grips can cause loss of control. Slippery tires can cause loss of traction and loss of
control. Both situations could result in serious injury or death.
For the finest leather care, use Pure VICTORY Leather, Vinyl & Rubber Conditioner, a
unique, pleasantly scented formula of premium-quality polymers designed to restore luster
and softness to vinyl, leather and rubber without making them slippery.
This product is a true conditioner, not a coating. It does not close the pores of the surfaces but
penetrates, nourishes and softens the material. It protects against ultra violet (UV) rays and
cracking, repels water and prolongs the life and like-new appearance of the materials.
Applied to rubber, this product creates a water-repellent, like-new appearance. This product
can also be used to restore or maintain the factory finish on a VICTORY instrument panel/
dash and rear storage compartment black vinyl surfaces. Regular use increases soil resistance.
1. Apply the product on a clean dry surface using a soft cloth.
2. Rub the product into the material. Repeat the treatment if the surface is extremely dry.
3. Wipe dry with a second cloth to remove excess product. Buff lightly with the second
towel for additional luster.
95
Cleaning and Storage
If you will not operate the motorcycle for several months, such as during the winter, store the
motorcycle to prevent damage to the fuel system and the battery and to protect components
from corrosion or deterioration. During storage you might use products that are potentially
hazardous; such as fuel stabilizer. When using any of these products, follow the instructions
and warnings on the product packaging.
This section includes instructions for preparing the motorcycle for storage, maintaining it
during storage and removing it from storage.
Storage Area Preparation
Choose a dry, well-ventilated storage location, inside a garage or other structure if possible.
The location should have a firm, flat surface and allow enough space for the motorcycle.
To best preserve tire condition:
• The storage area should have a relatively constant and moderate temperature.
• The storage surface should be free of oil and gasoline.
• The motorcycle should not be near a radiator or other heat source, or any type of electric
motor.
Clean and Protect the Motorcycle
To prepare the motorcycle for storage, begin by cleaning it as outlined beginning on page 91.
Wax painted surfaces and polish chromed and other metal surfaces. Apply protectant to
exposed rubber, vinyl, and plastic parts.
Do not apply rubber protectant to the tire tread surfaces.
Fuel Stabilizer
Using a mixture of fuel and the recommended amount of VICTORY Premium Carbon Clean
Plus or other gasoline stabilizer, fill the fuel tank only to the top of the filler insert.
Ride the motorcycle or start and run the engine for 15 minutes in a well ventilated area to
pass the stabilized fuel through entire fuel-injection system.
Tire Inflation
Inflate the tires to normal pressure. See page 78.
96
Cleaning and Storage
Engine Protection
Change the engine oil. See page 59. Carbon deposits and combustion acids, normally suspended in the engine oil when in service, settle on internal engine components during storage. Settled deposits can cause engine damage or internal corrosion.
Battery Care
1. Remove the battery. See page 79.
2. Clean the battery terminals first with a wire brush to remove any loose deposits.
3. Wash the posts and the ends of the battery cables with a solution of 1 part baking soda to
16 parts water. Rinse with clean water and wipe dry.
4. Apply a thin film of dielectric grease (available from your VICTORY dealer) to the posts
and cable connectors.
5. Clean the outside of the battery with a solution of mild detergent and warm water.
6. Store the battery in a dry area with a temperature of 32° to 90° F (0° to 32° C).
7. While in storage, fully charge the battery once a month. See page 80.
Park and Cover the Motorcycle
Park the motorcycle in its storage location. Cover it with a genuine VICTORY motorcycle
cover, or a cover made from a durable, breathable material designed for storage. Covering
the motorcycle helps protect it from dust and other airborne materials. The cover must be of
a breathable material to prevent moisture from building up on the motorcycle which can
cause oxidation of metal surfaces.
Rodents
Mice and other rodents are often the worst enemy of a stored motorcycle. If the motorcycle
will be stored in an area where mice are a concern (particularly in rural areas, barns, sheds,
etc.) be sure to take extra measures to deter their infestation. This may include placing a
screen mesh over any intake or exhaust openings (just be sure to remember to remove them
when you take the motorcycle from storage).
Maintenance During Storage
During extended storage periods, maintain tire pressure and battery voltage at the recommended levels.
97
Cleaning and Storage
Removal From Storage
1.
2.
3.
4.
Remove the cover and unlock the front forks (if locked).
Verify that tire pressure is at specification.
Install the battery and perform an electrical inspection.
Check the oil level. If the motorcycle was stored in an area subject to wide swings in
temperature and humidity (such as outdoors), change the engine oil before starting the
engine.
NOTICE: During storage, temperature and humidity changes can cause condensation to form in the
crankcase and mix with engine oil. Running the engine with oil that contains condensation
can cause engine damage.
5. Inspect the storage area for signs of fluid leaks. Identify and perform service to any leaking components.
6. Install new spark plugs if necessary.
7. Wash and polish the motorcycle. Wax, polish, or apply protectant to appropriate components.
8. Perform the pre-ride inspections. See page 38.
9. Perform a road test. See page 88.

NAV MP3
Navigation MP3 Introduction
Changing to NAV MP3 Mode
Please read this manual and the GARMIN
ZUMO 660 NAV MP3 information provided with your player to become familiar
with all unit features and operation.
The audio integration kit must be installed
to enable outputs from the NAV MP3 (such
as navigation instructions or user-loaded
MP3 media files) to play through the headsets or speakers. The unit is fully functional
without the kit installed, but there will be no
interface with the vehicle’s audio system.
The ignition key must be in the ACC or ON
position to use the audio system.
Press VOL (+) to turn the audio system on.
Press and release the MODE button until
AUX is the active source.
Navigation MP3 Operation Tips
To change the mode, press the MODE button
repeatedly to toggle to the AUX mode.
Press TUNE (+) or TUNE (-) to set the
mode to AUX (for iPod or any other MP3
player use) or to NAV MP3 for navigation
unit MP3 player use.
• Signals coming from the NAV MP3 unit will
override any source of the motorcycle’s audio
system to ensure navigation instructions are
communicated when needed. The signals will
also override the MP3 player.
• You must set volume levels within the NAV
MP3 unit. Volume settings in the motorcycle’s
audio system control NAV MP3 volume, but
navigation instructions may be difficult to hear
if volume levels in the unit are set too low. See
the GARMIN information for setting
procedures. The recommended initial settings
are 100/80/80: MASTER 100%, NAVIGATION
80%, MEDIA 80%.
• Pause or stop the MP3 player to switch to
radio.
• To switch from radio to MP3 player, change
the active source to AUX. For best sound
quality, change the AUX mode setting on the
radio from AUX to NAV MP3 when listening to
the MP3 player. Audio works in the AUX
setting, but the levels are not optimized.
• If playing MP3 files from the GARMIN ZUMO
660 unit, you may need to turn down the
“media volume” on the GARMIN unit to avoid
distortion.
