    I have a 2018 SDH and when I plug in my battery tender all it does is blink red indicating it is not charging. I thought maybe the factory plug might not be hooked up so I hooked up a multimeter to the end of it and I am getting a good voltage reading from the battery. I have a backup lawnmower...

    I saw somewhere on this site that there is a trickle charger connection under the left cover. Anybody know anything about it?
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

    I had never heard of these battery minders. Now they are on the Indian website as their tender. Might be a good thing with the sensitivity of the Indian electrics.... BatteryMINDer® Model 2012-AGM : 12V 2 AMP Charger-Maintainer-Desulfator For Optima, Odyssey, Polaris, Yuasa & Other High...
  6. 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?
  7. 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...
  8. Indian Chieftain
    Bought a leftover 2017 Chieftain at the end of December, had the Stage 3 installed, and didn't bring it home from the dealer until two weeks ago. Got it home to the garage, hooked it up to a battery tender and let it be for a week. Started the bike last Friday, and it barely turned. Shut the...
  9. 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

    I've been having this happen for a while now. At one point I even had it taken care of at the local dealership. Anyway, I'll be cruising and when I decelerate around corners or anything like that, my lights dim, then brighten whenever I rev it back up. There's a considerable difference in...
  11. Indian Roadmaster
    Just recently, my 2016 Roadmaster started blowing smoke out of only the left tailpipe for at least the first 5-10 minutes after starting up. Not sure why it would just come from the left tailpipe. I have noticed that when starting in the cold weather we've had here in the Northeast, that the...
  12. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    Odd behavior from "Running Bear," my 2015 Indian Chief Classic. When I try to start it now, to no avail, the hazards start blinking. Context: Michigan temps went from single digits Fahrenheit to 50 degrees today (that's the good news). When I opened the garage door my bike was covered in...
  13. Indian Chief Vintage
    I have a 2015 Vintage. The quick connect pigtail comes out the left side of the bike under the plastique rocker panel. The problem? The Indian proprietary connect is not a universal connect. The connector itself has two prongs extruding which means means I need a female coupler to use my...
  14. Indian Scout
    My battery is dying. If I have a misstart (lift off clutch too early, stalling) right after starting, the battery needs a jump to start again. What's weird about it is that it mostly starts the bike, as long as I'm only counting on it starting the one time, and ride it at least ten minutes...
  15. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    I've been riding my new bike daily. I'm in Randolph, Massachusetts. The weather is cold. Not below freezing yet. Upon backing my bike out of my non heated but insulated garage. Just checked inside temp of my garage was 42 degrees this morning. My bike cranked over very slowly and low voltage...
  16. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Looked through old posts and did not see anything so wondering what most use for tenders for their ride. I have a 2017 RM if that matters.
  17. Indian Roadmaster
    I want to apologize to whoever thought it would be an awesome idea to put the battery under the seat with no way to access it except by removing the seat. And the ECU which apparently is prone to getting fried by the battery it sits directly over. And the trunk. That you have to get to by...
  18. Indian Scout Sixty
    2017 scout sixty from the dealer last month. Went out of town and didn't ride it for 7 days and the battery is dead. This seems very unusual for a brand new (from the dealer) bike. I've had bikes sit for months without the battery dieing on me. Also, big question... The battery tender...
  19. Indian Chieftain
    rolled bike out, hit power switch, everything lit up, touch starter button, nothing! Everything is dead. Rolled back in garage, reconnected battery tender, sYs battery is charged. Any ideas? Possibly loose connection somewhere? TIA
