If your VICTORY motorcycle will not be used for a period of 6 weeks or longer, a maintenance
charger should be connected to the battery. A fused maintenance charger connection is provided.
The connector is designed for use with the VICTORY accessory maintenance charger available at
your authorized VICTORY dealer.
Following the charger manufacturer’s instructions, use a battery charger designed for use
with 12-volt batteries. The charger should have a maximum charging rate of 1.8 amps.
Charge the battery for approximately 10 hours at a rate of 1.8 amps. If you use a taper or
trickle charger, it will take longer to charge the battery.
After charging the battery, allow the battery to sit 1-2 hours before checking the state of
charge with a DC volt meter. The charge should be a minimum of 12.5 DC volts. Repeat
the charging cycle if the charge is less than 12.5 DC volts. Replace the battery if it fails
to reach 12.5 volts after the second charge.
Ignition Switch / Lock Lubrication
Periodically lubricate the ignition switch, saddle bag locks and fuel cap lock. We recommend
the use of VICTORY Multi-Purpose Lubricant.
Spray lubricant directly into the ignition switch and into each lock cylinder for 1-2 sec-
Insert each key into its lock and turn it to all positions to distribute the lubricant.
Wipe away any excess lubricant.
Periodically lubricate the sidestand pivot and the
ends of the spring. See page 43 for sidestand
