  1. Indian Chieftain
    Hello I ride a 2017 Chieftain. My experience with the bike has been good so far; except for the frequent electronic issues. Recently I see audio system going mute suddenly, occasional console restarts when motorcycle is still running. I have upgraded my firmware recently. I feel like...

    Hi everyone, I purchased a new 2018 Chieftain back in May! It came without the navigation, but I was wondering if it is worth getting? Would you say that it is better than google maps? I plan on getting it, just thought I would double check considering I was not sure on how it will be. Any...

    I bought my 2017 Chieftain as a demo bike and it had the Select Rider Floorboards in black. I replaced them with OEM Floorboards so that I could add fringe. These select floorboards are in near mint condition. Just a very minor scratch on the front of one of the boards, not noticeable...
  5. Indian Chieftain
    Hey Everyone Was wondering if anyone could chime in on if this bike is a good deal or not. Barring the inherent differences in the 2017 vs 2018, a lot of the upgrades done to it are ones I had considered for a 2018 purchase. The bike is in North Carolina and I live in the Midwest so there...

    I’ve had my chieftain for 3 years now and have recently got the itch for something new. Looking at trading the 15 chieftain for an 18 Springfield dark horse, what are yall’s thoughts? The dealership has made me an offer with swapping my must keep parts over to the new one ( slip ons and air...
  11. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    I did a quick look, didn't find this already, but I am sure it is in here somewhere. Is there a good walkthrough posted on how to remove the engine guard and replace it? It looks like the floorboards may need to come off first. What else is involved?
  12. Indian Chieftain
    I'm thinking of getting the the Kuryakyn Spear Brake Pedal pad for my Chieftain. I read someone's review on Amazon that his broke off. Majority of the reviews were positive. Anyone had the issue of the pad breaking off? Thanks in advance for your input!

    Has anyone looked into changing hand controls on a 2017 Chieftain or Roadmaster to 2018 controls? I wonder if they would even work or since the windshield up and down button was moved from left to right if a jumper would need to be used or if the 2017 computer would even recognize 2018 control...

    In need of tech help. I'm putting 3 HID ballasts in the fairing (tight squeeze, I know) and need to know if there is a power supply robust enough to handle this already in the fairing, Or will I need to run a power hub of sorts from the primary? Already considering the Denali Powerhub-2...

    All of us PVCX owners with 2017's and RC are well aware of the CANbus sync issue which has been commented on in a couple of other PVCX related tuning threads including Craig's awesome tuning thread. But I thought it would be good to start a new thread just on this topic as I for one am not happy...
