Wide Spread Gunner Issues?

Hi All,
I am ready to purchase a 2015 or 2016 Gunner until I came across another Gunner owner over the weekend who gave a nightmarish review of his new Gunner. His feedback was: belt noise and quality issues with the belt, rear tire constantly locking up when braking, electrical shorts when the wires get wet, gears getting stuck, rear shock bottoming out, and just shoddy workmanship from the factory. He also said that many other owners have similar issues?

I know no bike is perfect and sometimes people do get unlucky and purchase a lemon, but have other experienced some of the issues that I just mentioned?

Thanks,
Steve

I have had mine for a year with NO issues whatsoever. Dealer tells me none apparent from other owners who seem to love their Gunners too.

Bought a 2015 Gunner in July. I keep taking it back for something.
A speedo issue. Needle would bounce when decelerating.
Headlight issue.
High beam would go out for no reason. Said the connector melted. Replaced w/ off market ceramic.
Have had a "noise" from day one. Belt? Bearing? Something. They keep saying they don't hear anything. I say they must be tone deaf.
It also pulls to the right and put you in a ditch w/i 5 sec if you let go of the handle bars.
Said they can't find anything wrong.

Just about time to start bad mouthing Victory AND the selling dealer.

I like the ride. Power! Strength and speed is awesome. Maneuverability awesome. It's just the little quirks that are pissing me off. Ya know what I mean?
