    Well a while back I said HD had the best kickstand in the business and Indians was junk and people thought it was ridiculous. Indian kickstands are known to crack at the top. Now add this to the crappy kickstand. From my '16 Dark Horse. 20170320_184854.jpg

    This means a 180 mile round trip to the dealer. The longer I own this bike the more I find I don't like.

    That sucks. Sell it now and get the most you can from it with the season just coming on.

    Mike,
    Can't you just order a new one online and install it yourself?

    And BTW, I've replaced the one on my Harley about 5 times through the years, as well as a bunch of others. It looks like the same part that H-D uses on some of theirs, probably from the exact same supplier.

    Sure I could, but it's under warranty and I really want to ride this week, not wait on mail.

    Maybe talk to your dealer, they might send you one once they receive yours on warranty.

    I believe any 5 1/2 x 5/8 will work, but i'm not paying Polaris price! Got to look around.

    It is warranty. 14 months and 1800 miles. Shouldn't happen. I actually know someone that died because of a kickstand spring failure on an old HD. He leaned hard left, the stand caught and flipped the bike.
