I'm going to try Shinysideups fix opening up the turn signal halves and spray in some air. I'll post back what was the result.

Victory Charger / Re: Victory Empulse TT???

Sorry, Jeff. No fairing yet, but in August you CAN get performance forks for $2299.99. And I KNOW you're gonna order some!

Ha, pretty hard to resist!
But I think I'll try to upgrade my current forks first, fiddle around with air chambers and different oil weight, then maybe upgrade springs, revalve/reshimm etc.  ::)

Brammo Empulse FAQ / Re: Servide and Maintenance requirements 9600km - 6000mi

It is also required to repack the steering bearings with grease every 3000 miles.

I am about to replace the suspension oil in the front legs too, but there is no oil specified...
Wondering what is inside now, as the suspension seems pretty harsh, even in the softest setting.

Does anyone know what kind of oil, how much should one leg contain?
Air chamber figures?

Brammo Empulse Mods / Re: Titanium Harware Upgrade (Mostly)
« Last post by Virtually Yours on July 31, 2015, 10:10:20 AM »
So after much reading and researching I decided to use Permatex Copper Anti-Seize Lubricant.
http://www.permatex.com/component/documents/?view=tds&format=raw&filename=31163.pdf&market=automotive
In the PDF file it says its specificlly for "stainless steel and other similar alloys" however it also says to use normal torque values but that is wrong. I called the 1-800 # and torque values should be reduced 18%.
Thanks Shiney for pointing me in the right direction.

I have almost 13k miles and I've bleed the brakes twice and the the clutch once. The forks no because if the seals aren't broken and not leaking then don't worry about them. As long as they are not bottoming out or something then everything is fine.

Enjoyed the video. And, yeah, it seems to have helped to have all that F1 experience inside the company!

Brammo Enertia Plus / Re: Hope For the Enertia/+

Well, slap me twice and call me Sally... Victory's producing the Empulse.

No word on an Enertia derivative, but we can dream.

I think Motorcycle.com has published the best review of the Victory Empulse so far:  http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/victory/2016-victory-empulse-tt-first-ride-review.html

Photo caption from the above:
"If it looks like a Brammo Empulse R to you, thatís because it mostly is. Victory made a few updates and provided new graphics with sparkling gold metalflake in the paint."

I'm hoping they've worked past this debacle:
