This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. The Victory Motorcycle Division of Polaris Industries Inc. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in some 2006 Victory motorcycles. Our records indicate that you have purchased a potentially affected vehicle.
 
The reason for this recall:

The repair will take approximately one hour and fifteen minutes to perform, although your dealership may need your motorcycle for a longer period of time depending on the work schedule.

DO NOT OPERATE YOUR MOTORCYCLE UNTIL ALL REPAIRS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED!
