    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion

    What does everyone think of the FTR 1200S Rear brakes? In STD mode I can stand on the lever and does not noticeably slow the bike. Take ABS and traction control off and it will lock the rear wheel. Dealer seems to think their all the same. Thoughts?

  8. Indian Chief Dark Horse Brake Pad Replacement

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Hello all, I took a look at my front brake pads, and noticed that they are getting close to being completely worn and are likely ready for replacement (no squeaking or grinding yet, so not an emergency). I would prefer to do my own maintenance, but haven't worked on a motorcycle's brakes...
