Safety Precautions Pay close attention to the motorcycle maintenance requirements in this Manual. For additional information or assistance regarding technical service specified in the Owner’s Manual or required by mechanical circumstances, see the Victory Service Manual or your authorized Victory Dealer. Safe Riding Design Characteristics The following design characteristics affect how you should ride the Victory motorcycle:...
Safety Precautions Safe Riding Practices Follow these general safe riding practices: Before you ride, make sure you can operate the motorcycle safely and properly by following the recommendations given at the beginning of the Safety Precautions section on page 3. Each time you ride, make the checks described in the Pre- -Operation Check section.
Safety Precautions Safe Riding Practices (continued) The most common cause of accidents involving a motorcycle and an automobile is the automobile driver’s failure to see the motorcycle. Ride defensively, as if you are invisible to other motorists, even in broad daylight. Ride where you are visible to other motorists and observe their behavior carefully, as they may not see or be aware of you.
Safety Precautions Safe Riding Practices (continued) If in doubt, reduce your speed when: - - The weather is windy, raining, or otherwise causing slippery or rapidly changing conditions. - - The traffic is heavy, congested, not allowing sufficient space between vehicles, or otherwise not flowing smoothly.
Safety Precautions Safe Riding Practices (continued) Ground clearance is reduced when you lean the motorcycle. Do not allow components to contact the road surface when leaning the motorcycle in a curve, as this could cause you to lose control of the motorcycle. Retract the sidestand fully before riding.
Safety Precautions Carrying a Passenger (continued) 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 you to lose control of the motorcycle.
Safety Precautions Protective Apparel (continued) Wear heavy boots and pants to prevent or reduce abrasions, lacerations, or burns that you can suffer if you fall. Wear boots with low heels because boots with high heels can catch on pedals or footrests. The combination of your boots and pants should completely cover your legs, ankles, and feet, protecting you from engine and exhaust system heat.
Safety Precautions Example 1: V92TC Touring Cruiser with no cargo Gross Vehicle Weight Rating 1210 lbs (549 kg) Item Weight Touring Cruiser - with full capacity of all fluids 759 lbs (344 kg) Operator - with recommended riding apparel 220 lbs (100 kg)
Safety Precautions Loading Use the following guidelines when attaching cargo or accessories to the motorcycle. Where applicable, these guidelines refer to accessories and their contents. Keep cargo and accessory weight to a minimum, and keep it as close to the motorcycle as possible, to minimize a change in the motorcycle’s center of gravity.
Safety Precautions Saddlebags Saddlebags are included with some Victory models. Use the following guidelines when operating a motorcycle with saddlebags installed. Never ride a motorcycle with saddlebags above 80 mph (120 km/h). Depending on load and weather conditions, the maximum safe operating speed may be less than 80 mph (120 km/h). Saddlebags can make the motorcycle unstable due to the lifting or buffeting effects of wind and can cause you to lose control of the motorcycle.
Safety Precautions Parking For complete parking procedures, see “Parking” page 67. When leaving the motorcycle unattended, turn the engine off, engage the steering lock, and take the ignition key with you. The engine and exhaust system are very hot after the engine has been running. Therefore, park the motorcycle where people are not likely to touch the engine or exhaust system or place combustible materials in close proximity to these hot areas.
Safety Precautions Product Modifications Modifying the motorcycle by removing any equipment or adding equipment not approved by Victory may void your warranty. Such modifications may also make the motorcycle unsafe to ride and could severely injure you or others or damage the motorcycle. Some modifications may be illegal in some states. If in doubt, contact your authorized Victory Dealer.
Safety Precautions Selecting and Installing Accessories (continued) Do not install electrical accessories that exceed the capacity of the motorcycle’s electrical system. An electrical failure could result and cause hazardous loss of engine power or lights, or damage to the electrical system. If you want to add a windshield, backrest, or luggage rack, choose one designed and approved by Victory specifically for your model, and follow the instructions for proper installation and use.
Safety Precautions Gasoline and Exhaust Gases (continued) Gasoline and gasoline vapors are poisonous and can cause severe injury. Do not swallow gasoline, inhale gasoline vapors, or spill gasoline on yourself or your clothes. If you swallow gasoline, inhale more than a few breaths of gasoline vapor, or get gasoline in your eyes, see a physician immediately.
Safety Precautions see the Victory Service Manual or your authorized Victory Dealer for tire replacement. Operating the motorcycle with improper tire pressure or tread condition, or improper wheel or tire balance, can make the motorcycle hard to handle and cause you to lose control of the motorcycle. Check proper steering head bearing adjustment.

Operation This section describes how to operate the Victory motorcycle for best performance and longevity, including: Engine Break- -in Period Fueling And Fill Height Starting The Engine Shifting Gears Accelerating Braking Stopping The Engine Parking For safe operation and riding, see Safety Precautions, beginning on page 3. Engine Break- -in Period During the first 500 miles (800 kilometers), critical engine parts require special wear- -in procedures so they seat and mate properly.
Operation Engine Break- -in Period (continued) 0- -90 miles (0- -145 kilometers) - - Do not operate the motorcycle for extended periods of time at throttle positions above 1/3 throttle. Vary the engine speed of the motorcycle. Do not operate the motorcycle for extended periods of time at any one set throttle position.
Operation Fueling and Fill Height Fuel the motorcycle with the sidestand down and on level ground. Use only the recommended fuel (see “Fuel Specifications” page 139). Fill the fuel tank to a level just below the bottom of the fuel filler insert. WARNING •...
Operation Starting the Engine The Victory motorcycle has a starter interlock system. The engine can be started only when the transmission is in neutral, or when the transmission is in gear and the clutch is disengaged. Follow these steps to start the motorcycle: 1.
Operation Starting the Engine (continued) 7. Leaving the throttle closed, press and hold the starter button until the engine starts. If the engine does not start within a few seconds after you press the starter button, release the button and wait several seconds. Then press and hold the starter button again. Hold the starter button for as short a time as possible to minimize battery drain, and do not push the starter button for more than 10 seconds at any one time.
Operation Shifting Gears WARNING The clutch must be fully disengaged (clutch lever pulled completely in toward the handlebars) before you attempt to shift gears. Forced shifting (shifting without the clutch disengaged) may damage the engine, transmission, and drive train, causing you to lose control of the motorcycle. The motorcycle is equipped with a five- -speed transmission.
Operation Shifting Gears (continued) To engage first gear, start the engine (see “Starting the Engine” page 60). With the engine at idle speed, engage the front brake (squeeze the brake lever) and disengage the clutch (squeeze the clutch lever). Push the shift pedal down until you feel it stop in first gear.
Operation Shifting Gears (continued) WARNING • Downshifting at a speed in excess of the recommended downshift point may severely damage the transmission or cause the rear wheel to lose traction. It could also result in engine damage from running at excessive rpm. Reduce speed before downshifting and do not downshift at a speed above that in the table of recommended shift points.
Operation Accelerating To accelerate, open the throttle (roll the throttle control grip toward you). For even acceleration, open the throttle with a smooth, continuous motion. When you reach the recommended speed for upshifting, shift up one gear according to the instructions in “Shifting Gears” page 62. The more quickly you open the throttle, the more quickly the motorcycle accelerates.
Operation Braking To slow the motorcycle with the brakes, close the throttle and apply the front and rear brakes evenly. As the motorcycle slows, either disengage the clutch or downshift each time your speed reaches a downshift point. Applying slightly more front brake than rear brake generally gives you the best braking performance. Do not apply the brakes so forcefully or quickly that either wheel stops rotating.
Operation Stopping the Engine Before stopping the engine, bring the motorcycle to a complete stop either in neutral or with the clutch disengaged. Once the motorcycle is at a complete stop, if it is not already in neutral, shift into neutral. To stop the engine, set the engine stop/run switch to the Stop position, turn the ignition switch to the Off position, and remove the ignition key.
Operation Parking (continued) If you must park on a slope, point the motorcycle toward the top of the slope. Put the transmission in gear and park the motorcycle so that it is stable when it rests on the sidestand. If you must park on a soft surface, use a sidestand plate under the foot of the sidestand to provide a firm surface.

Cleaning and Storage This section explains how to properly clean the various parts of your Victory motorcycle and how to store it to keep it in good working order and appearance. Cleaning Clean your motorcycle regularly to protect it from corrosion and to keep it looking new. As you clean your motorcycle you perform a complete and thorough visual inspection that may reveal components in need of repair.
Cleaning and Storage Washing and Drying Before washing the motorcycle, make sure the exhaust pipes are not hot. Cover each exhaust pipe opening with a plastic bag and attach the bag to the pipe with a strong rubber band. To prevent contamination from water, check that the spark plugs, spark plug wire caps, oil fill cap, and fuel caps are properly seated.
Cleaning and Storage Caution Use as little water as possible when washing near the air cleaner or the exhaust pipe openings. An excessively wet air cleaner, or water in the exhaust pipes, may cause the engine to start and run poorly. Dry these components thoroughly before using the motorcycle.
Cleaning and Storage Waxing, Polishing, and Applying Protectants (Items Other Than Windshields) After washing and drying the motorcycle, you can help extend the life and appearance of its components by waxing painted surfaces, polishing chrome surfaces, and applying a protectant to exposed rubber, vinyl, and plastic parts.
Cleaning and Storage Windshield Care A windshield is included with some Victory models. Wash the windshield using a soft cloth or sponge soaked in a solution of mild detergent and warm water, applying minimal pressure as you wash. Let the detergent do the cleaning, not the pressure you apply. Excessive washing pressure may cause dirt, sand, or other foreign materials on the windshield to scratch it.
Cleaning and Storage 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;...
Cleaning and Storage Stabilize Fuel 1. Using a mixture of fuel and the amount of gasoline stabilizer recommended by the stabilizer manufacturer, fill the fuel tank only to the top of the filler insert. 2. Start and run the engine for 15 minutes to pass the stabilized fuel through entire fuel- -injection system.
Cleaning and Storage 4. Connect the spark plugs to the spark plug wires and ground the spark plugs to the engine. With the main switch in the On position, the stop/run switch set to Run, and the transmission in neutral, press the electric starter button to crank the engine a few times.
Cleaning and Storage Maintaining During Storage Check and maintain normal tire pressure and battery voltage during storage. Removing from Storage 1. Remove the cover and unlock the front forks. 2. Check the tire pressure and inflate the tires if necessary. 3.
