I sure didn't buy it that way, sounding like that... or expect anybody else to buy it sounding like that so I'm stuck with a $32,000 bike and the dealership wants to give me 16,500. 00[emoji21]..

  2. Thunder Stroke 111 Common Problems/Issues
    The last "clacking" thread was just shut down. I'm not sure, but I think I've red all the "clacking" treads on this forum. And I own a "clacker." I get that the remapping with the PVCX can help eliminate most of the "clacking" and that Polaris says that "clacking" is probably a result of...

    Thanksgiving is a time not to just be thankful but to express thankfulness to others. So that end, I want to start a thread -- not a technical thread, please -- to have us thank Craig Bennett for what he has brought to this group and the Indian brand over the last few months with his...

  8. Thunder Stroke 111 Common Problems/Issues
    Funny story, I had to trailer my bike to Sierra Vista, AZ because the army told me to bring more crap than I could put on it. I bring it out from Tennessee where I'm accustomed to it's little noises and such. I unload it and ride it up the grade to Bisbee and the damn bike sounded like a M249...
