  1. Indian Scout
    I bought my 2021 scout bobber back in November 2021. Part way through 2022 I noticed the start was weak after only 6000k. Back in September the bike wouldn't start so I tendered it, cleaned the connections and it fired up for a week then wouldn't start again. The display read 13.6v-14v but...
  2. Indian Scout Sixty
    So, after 4 years, the stock battery in my 2018 Scout 60 was getting weak. I thought about replacing it with the same battery, but my dealership was out of stock. I decided to see what was comparable, so I got the DieHard Gold AGM battery from Advance Auto Parts. Same size, same CCA and the same...

    Hi everyone, Among all the problems i had so far with my bike, thinking the problems surely will stop one day, i have a new problem.. My last few rides i noticed that while riding the battery voltage is showing around 13.7 mostly.. going down to 13.6 and hitting as high as 14.0. I am on my...
  4. Indian Scout
    I know there are lots of battery threads, but many are quite old. So here's the start of a new one. (Sorry about that, Chief). So my one year old battery drained over the weekend (not ridden). Charged it up overnight (with my trusty...

    So i keep trying to clean my bike every 3 days because of the salt on the roads in the UK. (Having to use my baby as my work bike at the moment). The problem i got this week was on Wednesday morning it failed to catch the ignition so my battery drained and had to charge then tonight leaving...
  6. Indian Scout Sixty
    Hi all. I recently purchased a 2021 scout sixty in July. It’s been 3 months and I love the bike. I have about 3.2k miles so far. However, since the last 2 weeks it’s been having battery problems. I ride my bike to work everyday which is 30mi round trip plus I take it out for joy rides when I get...
  7. Indian Chieftain
    Went to go for a ride today, and now I'm stuck. Rolled the bike down the driveway, hit the power button, tried to start... Click click click Dash says low voltage, I need to get a tender someday but shouldn't be kicking off so often. Whatever, hooked up jump start from car battery Click...
  8. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    Hi everyone, I’m not sure this is the correct sub forum to ask on here, but I was wondering if anyone might know why I’m having these issues? For reference, about a year or year and a half ago, I replaced the battery on my 2016 Chief DH for the first time since I bought her new. Unfortunately in...
  9. Indian Chief Vintage
    Hi! I'm having some battery drain problems with my Chief Vintage (model year 2018 and about 5000 miles on the clock). The bike is draining battery while sitting still and especially while driving it. With a fully charged battery, the bike runs for about 25 miles before voltage drops too low and...
  10. Indian Challenger
    Hi everyone, This will be a bit of a long story, sorry in advance, but to get all the details i must tell everything.. I have posted about my problems several times on facebook groups since i got my bike but im going to try here. January 17th i bought a new 2020 Challenger DH. The bike was...
  11. Indian Scout
    My bike is stored outside (covered, of course) with no easy access to an outlet. Aside from the solar battery tender option, would the following scenario for the Indian Scout Bobber charging work? Use a Ryobi 150-Watt Powered Inverter with a Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion 4.0 Ah battery to...
  12. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    When I start my bike I believe the voltage reads at 12 but when I start riding, I've on the display read out that the volts are jumping around between the low 11's up to the high 15's and occasionally into 16 range. Is this normal? Bad battery? Something else?
  13. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I was just reading @Chief Signguru (speedy recovery Chief) review of his Wicked battery, and some of the comments it spurred, and it got me to thinking that there must be some reason that a battery will last so long for some folks, but not for others. So i thought we should get some of...
  14. Indian Chieftain
    In 2018, a Trakking device was fitted to my new Indian Springfield motorcycle in Suffolk, UK. (Prior to this the bike had been fitted with a S4 security system. This caused electronic malfunction and fused the VCM requiring a new module. That item was removed). However, it is clear that an...
  15. Thunder Stroke 111 Common Problems/Issues
    Original battery in my 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited died a little less than a year / 2500 mi into it's life. Dealer replaced with new, which I installed per the manual. No go. Checked the battery - full charge. Bike showing the following codes: 168 SPN 1 FMI C1140: Right hand control...
  16. Indian Chieftain
    well it happened, I have a 15 chieftain with 47,000 miles. Pulled it from the man cave and hit the power button and it lit up, then I hit the starter and everything went out. Bought a new battery and all is good now. Thought almost 5 years of battery life was damn good, bike still runs like a...
  17. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion

  18. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    My first post on the forums was calling out veteran members for always replying "use the search." Wow, who'd have thought? Except the search SUCKS. Now that I've been a member for a couple years, you do notice a lot of the same questions being asked, over and over and over and... Today I've...
  19. 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...
  20. Indian Dark Horse
    Curious is all if anyone has replaced their battery with a different manufactured battery. The Polaris battery is pretty good but I am in the spot where I am in the 4th season with my bike and I want to replace the battery. I had the battery tender junior hooked up but the plug into the wall...
