Victory recalls bikes over fuel issue

Victory Gunner at Daytona Bike Week

Polaris has issued a voluntary global recall on 2342 Victory motorcycles over a stalling issue.

Affected models are 2013-14 Victory Cross-Country, Cross Roads, Hammer Eight Ball, High Ball, Jackpot and Vegas Eight Ball models; 2014 Cross Country Eight Ball, Cross Roads Eight Ball and Ness Cross Country; 2015 Victory Gunner; and 2013 Victory Hardball.

The Australian recall notice says: “Due to a manufacturing issue with the fuel pump assembly there may be insufficient clearance between the fuel pump body and impeller, which can interfere with normal fuel pump operation. If the defect occurs, the fuel pump may experience a sudden loss of fuel pressure, causing the engine to stall and posing an accident hazard to the rider and other road users.”

Consumers should contact their nearest Victory dealer to arrange for a free inspection and repairs.

Victory says they received some complaints from customers and discovered the problem was a fuel pump which did not meet their quality standards.

Victory contacted the supplier who replied with a fix in December.
