    This seat came off my Chieftain I‘ve owned for under a year. I prefer the stock seat as I’ve got shorter legs than the previous owner (I’m 5’9”) and this seat forces me to my tiptoes when stopped. The passenger pillion is custom. It’s extra wide and extra tall so the passenger can better see...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the tribe and, I recently bought a 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse after I got hit on my 2016 Victory Magnum. It came with the Indian stage 1 intake and exhaust and the stage 2 cams. The exhaust is too quiet for my taste. What's out there for louder pipes? I've heard good...

    Hey everyone! A couple of days ago I was browsing Indianmotorcycle.com for accessories for my bike. I own a 2017 Chieftain Darkhorse, and I was looking at some upgrades. Since the wife and I like taking longer rides, I was interested in getting the lower fairing kit, hard bag lid speaker...

    I was headed to work yesterday, and I stopped at a gas station to fill up then back on the road I go. No more than 200 ft away from the gas station, my bike dies doing about 45 mph. Originally I thought I hit the kill switch on accident, but that wasn't the case. I try starting it as I was...

    Finally found the cause of a fairing rattle that was driving me batshit crazy as it would only do it occasionally. Found the left fairing brace had come unbolted kn one side under the fairing. Easy to correct with a few drops of blue LocTite but a PITA to get to. All better now.

    Anybody know where I can get specs on a 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse handlebars? I bought new bars and am installing them. However, the new bars don't have holes drilled for the grip on the clutch side. I'm looking to get the specs on the position and diameter of the hole to drill.

    I was going to reply to this thread, but didn't want to hijack the post since it was pretty long. I think there's something more to this (maybe?) and it's frustrating the heck out of me. It's going to be a little long but please bear with me and read it when you got time. First incident I got...

    Anyone with the early Chieftain radios have a problem with it randomly switching from USB-BT-Radio-Off and not necessarily in that order. Mine will also sometimes switch off for 10-15 minutes and sometimes only for a second or 2. Drives me batshit crazy. Seems to be getting worse. And of course...

    Our previous Backrest/Luggage Rack combo for Indian Chieftains 2014 and newer were not thin enough to fit with saddle bags, so we have re-engineered it and made it much easier to fit Chieftains with saddle bags. This has our proprietary latch system, making the installation easy on and easy...

    Stock photo of my bike. This is the fist I have made a post like so here goes... There are probably a few ways to accomplish this task, I am just going to show and discuss the way I did it. I hope this someone considering installing their own bars. Before you start, make sure the bars you...

    Ok.. since I've bought my 2018 chieftain darkhorse about a month and a half ago it has been throwing codes like a bartender throwing shots at happy hour. The first time the handle bar switch was replaced, then the battery terminal came loose, and today I will be looking at the ground side of the...
