Two local riders have gone down on CC bikes citing a high speed wobble just before high siding at speed. One rider said a Victory technician said the front wheel bearings have been identified as the cause as he surveyed both bikes as they were purchased at the same dealership. Anybody out there have knowledge of any other reports? It maybe something the company needs to look into. Yes they discontinued the Victory line, but they are producing the Indian still.

On my 11 vision i have a 21 inch magnum wheel . It was new,but ididnt notice it did Not have the bearing dust cover on the wheel .and in 1100 miles the bearings went bad.. and i will say . I did exerpeince my 1 and only wobble ... it was scary! Felt like a ghost was grabbig my bars and trying to make me wreck! The wobble didn't make me check my front bearings. It was when I started leaning in turns in hearing a sound that I didn't hear before. So I replace the front bearings I said hell since my rear bearings are over 6 years old I'll just replace those as well
A local custom speed shop for Victories down here in florida was telling me that the 21" wheel on a Vision makes it feel sluggish in a turn. I'm having a set of custom forks put on and the blown rear shock replaced with a Penske. Have you felt anything in the way of sluggishness in the turns since you have had the 21 on your Vision? Thanks, Mark
