Victory Motorcycles Recalling Certain 2010-2017 Models

Polaris Industries owner of the now discontinued Victory Motorcycles is recalling 26200 motorcycles (model years 2010-2017): Victory Magnum, Cross Country, Cross Roads, Tour and Hard Ball. The issue is regarding the engine potentially misfiring and and resulting in heat from the catalytic converter melting the rear brake line and nearby wiring.

Damage to the brake line or wiring could increase the risk of a crash. “Continued operation with the engine in a misfire condition can result in elevated exhaust temperatures. The rear brake line and localized electrical lines can become damaged as the result of increased temperatures.”

Dealers will re-route the brake line away from the exhaust catalyst, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2017. Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-877-737-7172. Polaris’ number for this recall is V-17-02.

    I wonder about the potentially misfiring? Are they going to fix that too?

    The re-routing of cables etc is easier to fix than the misfire obviously ?
    ….or “a misfire” is just a red herring because in reality this exhaust routing issues causes this problem regardless of misfire ?

    Shouldn’t be that big of a deal it’s not like it’s going to put victory out of business Oh wait Polaris already did that dumb move, The only time you get real numbers on bikes is when they have a recall less than 3k a year not including cruisers, I can’t imagine the pastel and cream colored wanabeindians doing much better maybe the scout is at least it’s got a motor with potential put it in a better chassis

    most People think servicing their own bikes think a service is changing the oil and filter. Is a bike isn’t serviced properly things like missfires will happen. You can’t fix stupid.

    The only way polaris could fix the backfiring is to replace everyone’s ECM/ECU
    its the cheapest part on the bike. Stock bikes with stock mufflers back fire you just can’t hear it

    Mr. X nails it. This “misfire” is nothing more than exhaust popping which is quite typical when the bikes are set up lean to pass EPA certification. Of course lean also means HOT. Just get the reroute done and don’t worry about it. Or better yet, get yourself some performance modifications with a proper tune to not run lean! Yeah Buddy!
