I have a 2007 Aren Ness Jackpot and want to remove the Victory madallion from the tank.
What is the process to remove it?

Take your time and use a hair dryer. It will heat the madallion enough that it will peel off. Some of the glue will stay on the tank so use a little WD40 to help get the glue off.

most guys use strong fishing line or dental floss in a sawing motion behind the adhesive to remove. don't pull the badges, you'll bend them and then they're junk. you can always sell them on ebay if you remove well.

Why remove the badge? Ashamed of what your riding?Want people to think your Vic is a Harley? These are the 2 most common excuses I've heard from ex-Harley riders that now ride Vics.....
I say Bullshit!....be proud of what you ride and fly your colors!
Leave the tank badge on! Victory's rule!

With Tiller being flushed, I'd expect to see Victory gone within a year. You can't continue to sustain such losses and negative growth. Pull the badge? Better to try and sell it stock right now...pulling the badge will just decrease it's value even more.

One thing is for sure. I definately would not be because I would want someone to think it was a harley. And it's a Arlen Ness you moron.

I removed the badge not because I want anyone to think it is a harley and not because I want them to think it is not a victory. It is advertising they don't pay me for. I don't where t shirts with advertising a product either weather it be a Victory shirt or a beer ad shirt or Coca cola or whatever. It amuses me that people actually pay to wear advertising. It should be the other way around.

Plus people come up and say who makes that bike?! I get to talk to them and let them know it is a Vic. It gives me an Op. to tell em about the bike and to share. My reflectors are gone as well she is a minimalistic thing of beauty.

What a dick. So I guess a year has come and gone, so now what do you have to say? I guess it's time to start eating crow.
Even though I don't agree with the logic of removing the badging, there is another reason... to replace it with a differnt Victory badge.

Victorys to Harleys in today's world is a mirror image of what Harleys were to Indians over 75 years ago. Victory's are simply superior to Harleys. That is a fact no Victory or Harley owner would deny. I can respect any die-hard Harley fanatic that has the funds to maintain a "name". I, on the other hand, am a simple middle class citizen that demands a quality American made cycle that I can escape on, without hassle. Deuces Down, my brothers!

DISAGREE - Have had a Hammer for three years and it is history ASAP. Victory does not stand behind the product and does not have any pride in there hame. Mine broke down after three years and I have a 4 year warranty. Still had to end up paying money out of my pocket so I could get the dumb thing back on the road. Only was in the shop 10 DAYS for a regulator. SAD.......

I agree with "loved my hammer" Victory does not stand behind there product the same goes for Harley.. I own both and have seen it on both ends.. My Kingpin has 9000 miles that I put on in the last several months. The fuel pump went out and victory hasn't decided if there going to warranty it because of the pipes etc.... I put on it. The shop guru I took it to said that they are going to warranty it anyways and what the hell did it have to do with a fuel pumps mechanical failure.. I had a flht in the shop for 6 weeks waiting on a transmission rebuild again on warranty. Since it was a warranty HD had sent a rep out to look it over and verify it was warranty work.. Took them 4 weeks to get him there.. Either way they both suck.. It's all about money. My new ride is a 62 Pan/Shovel built when HD was a company who stood buy there product, union made, when americans weren't afraid to earn there money. Not sit on there fat asses collecting a free dime..

My tank badges came loose on the their own so, I've taken them off. Outside of this issue with cheap glue the bike is awesome. I have an 8-ball and I'm going to have it pinstriped. I'm going to add a "V" to the tank then.

I'm proud of what I ride.. big deal. You want Victory to stick around, advertise for them, they make money, sell more bikes and you get support and service.. what a stupid concept.

So Jackie Boy.. not only is Victory still around moron, but they've come out with TWO great bikes that will rival even the high end Harley.
I'm a woman rider and I can outsmoke, outride and outrun any Harley on the road gentlemen.. so stick on your badges, fly your logo and be proud of what you ride. We are Victory owners.. an elite group of people that DON'T have to carry a toolkit on our bikes! Mwahahahaha
