  1. Indian Scout
    OK. Minor eff-up, major nuisance. Assistance needed. Hadda change the Scout battery. Removal and replacement no BD. Problem is this: There is a hose that splits and connects at the rear of the tank. Those two plastic connections looked vulnerable (and in the way), so I pulled the female...
  2. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Howdy Folks, Well, finally, after 72,000 miles and over 5 years of service the OEM battery on Chieftain #873 gave up the ghost. I cranked the bike up (started fine) Friday afternoon and rode over to Marfa to hang out for a few hours at Planet Marfa Beer Garden as is my custom during the warmer...

  4. Thunder Stroke 111 Guides & How-To's
    I just replaced the stock battery (3 1/2 yrs old) with the Wicked battery. I got it from Amazon for just under $100 delivered. They claim 500 CCA, it cranked the bike right up with no problem and it is a direct fit for our stock batteries. Time will tell how this one lasts but I am happy with it...
  5. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    I've seen in a few threads folks mentioned putting a 500 CCA battery in their bikes, but searching goole for 2016 Indian Chieftain battery brings up nothing but 270 to 310 CCA batteries. Anyone have a source for a 500 CCA battery they can share? I'd like to get as many cranking amps as I can...
  6. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    I've searched the forum, but haven't really seen anything "recent" regarding a good replacement battery. My 2015 Vintage still has the original battery. After reading so many posts regarding projected battery life, I'm playing it safe replacing my battery at this point in time. The battery...
  7. Indian Chieftain
    Went to start the bike this morning, pushed the power button then the starter button. It made a clicking sound then nothing. Dash lights went out and the speedo stuck at 85 and the tach at 3000 rpm. Hit the power button again to turn off. Pulled seat, removed the vcm which I wrapped with a cloth...
  8. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    Is the original battery is the top battery that we can put on the bike or is there is other suggestion?
  9. Indian Scout
    Greetings, I have read through all the posts and have tried a few suggestions to no avail. Some background: I bought the bike, previous owner mentioned the battery died fast but kept it on a tender and started fine. I have kept it on a tender since I bought it but only rode twice since Feb...
  10. Thunder Stroke 111 Guides & How-To's
    My battery struggled to start the Chief yesterday, as a bit cool outside but still summer down here in NZ. It threw a "chkeng" code in the process. Tested the battery, it's almost shot. 2 years old, 7000kms. They don't make 'em like they used to...FYI...battery type (2014 Classic) is 20HL-BS
