  1. Dipstick with thermometer built in

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I have been selling a nice dipstick that fits in all of the new Indians (even Scout). It has a thermometer built in at the top so you can monitor the oil temp. It is also easy to screw in and out without a tool. Anyway the manufacturer is retiring the business. I am receiving the last batch ever...
  2. Is the OEM Oil Dipstick Meant to Read Cold Oil Level?

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    When I changed the oil in my RM last week at 5,000 miles, I noticed that my OEM oil dipstick has the word, "Cold" etched on it (below the "Add" mark) along with a row of 5 "X's" on upper side of "Cold" and 5 "X's" going down toward the bottom of the dipstick on lower side of "Cold".

I started up the bike and then proceeded to switch dipsticks. Guess what, the oil chamber is under pressure. It sends a burst of...
  6. Dipstick Temp Gauge

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Hey guys. I have a new product to offer that I think you will like. It is a replacement for the dipstick. The "Dipstick Temp Gauge" replaces your OEM dipstick. Why? Because it is many times easier to read the oil level and it gives you the temperature of your oil in the sump at a glance. The...

    The Aeromach dipstick will not fit our engines. They are in the process of resolving the problem. Do not attempt to force screw the dipstick into the threaded hole, because you will cause major harm to the crankcase threads. Contact them for refund or credit. They are a great group of people...
