2012 PURE VICTORY GEAR Victory Motorcycles

Whenever riding and especially when visiting a Victory / Indian / Polaris Dealer, responses about the accessories mounted on this 2012 Victory Kingpin have been guarded curiosity, if not, complete disbelief that with the amount of accessories, the Kingpin continues to operate flawlessly.

With the exception of having anyone in the Victory / Indian / Polaris Dealer network doing any work and the resulting documented issues, the 2012 Victory Kingpin has gotten better with miles behind it.

Updating the page with rides and noticed the term “Custom” as the caption for the image above. Have revised the caption to “Custom Factory OEM” (Original Equipment Manufacturer), the reasoning being of all the added accessories “Custom”, only one would be considered “Custom” to the true “Custom” builders out there.

The Citizens Band (CB) Antenna Mount was the only thing personally hand crafted “Custom” on the 2012 Victory Kingpin. The KewlMetal Luggage Rack – Chrome and the HeliBars Horizon Rebel HZ700SR multi-axis adjustable handlebar system originally designed for HD, yes that HD, but fitted to the 2012 Victory Kingpin would be considered “OEM After-Market”. Every other piece bolted to it is “OEM Accessory” & “OEM After-Market”.

How time has changed! Technology evolves! All wired accessories have been removed, consisting of the Citizens Band (CB) Radio, Citizens Band (CB) Antenna, Citizens Band (CB) Antenna Mount, Doran 360M Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which Doran discontinued was the catalyst of the changes. Doran completely abandoned the consumer market and now only manufacturers for the commercial industry.

Researching replacement Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), I found the discontinued Garmin Zumo 595 that has TPMS integrated into the GPS. Upgrading from the Garmin Zumo 660 and eliminating the CB removing a massive amount of wiring installed to accommodate the previous setup.

After ten years of ownership, accessories for Ghost Riders’ 2012 Victory Kingpin still exist! Purchased in July of 2023, a Bezel Cover For Victory Motorcycle Cruise Control from Rudyness66 Amazon Store. Have to admit, the bezel has a factory OEM feel that fit the factory OEM cruise control snugly.

The second accessory installed was the VSYSTO S2F Motorcycle Dash Cam. This is a product is in its infancy of aftermarket motorcycle Dash Cam industry. Way too many wires! Color coded, waterproof or should I say highly water resistant, connectors. Although the Y-Adapter for the GPS transmitter did demand a second, more detailed, look at the installation manual. The manual is a minimalist instruction on the installation and every feature offered, which depend on model motorcycle cam purchased, some of those features may or may not be in the box. The VSYSTO interface reminds me of an ’80’s era computer running the earliest versions of Microsoft Windows. Another application of the minimalist philosophy applies to the Android App. Downloading a video thru the app from Online to Local takes forever! But the positives outweigh the minimalist philosophy with the G-sensor technology that automatically saves and locks the footage file when shake/collision, preventing the authentic video from being overwritten. The VSYSTO S2F motorcycle camera provides speed, altitude, Air pressure, trip distance, and battery voltage when connecting with the GPS tracker.

Resolved Greater Motorsports Incompetence

Purchasing the 2012 Victory Kingpin at the now Out of Business Greater Motorsports of Palm Beach. The first scheduled service at 5,000 miles, having the oil changed the incompetent mechanics under the supervision of the Service Manager Kurt Reickel at the time, stripped the Oil Drain Plug in the crankcase. After trying many different ways to repair the issue, Arizona Victory Oil Drain Repair Kit did the trick and totally resolved the problem created by the most incompetent service staff I have ever encountered!
