  1. Thunder Stroke 111 Common Problems/Issues
    I have a 2014 Indian Chief Vintage. As I was riding, I noticed as I was scrolling through on my dash read out, check engine came up. After a little while, individual lights on my dash started coming on and off. All of a sudden I lost half my power and realized I was running on one cylinder. I...
  2. Indian Roadmaster
    I wrote here before about the "feature" that came with my bike where getting a solid jolt in the road caused the cruise control to shut off. Now I have the "extended feature" where a jolt causes my sound system to turn on and off. Sometimes, it just causes the music to skip like an old record...
  3. Indian Chieftain
    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...

  7. Indian Scout
    The starter had been going downhill for a while. Started failing at 2500 miles as a very intermittent issue; cold and moisture in the air made it worse. Not the fuel rail, not the battery, not the rectifier or any wiring connections or ground issues - just a bad starter that continued to build...
  8. Indian Chieftain
    Hi All, I have a 2015 Chiefmaster (Chieftain with added trunk, heated seat, grips, etc...). I had to take a year off to recover from foot/ankle reconstruction. During recovery I went out often to start up the bike to keep everything circulated and going. I figured it didn't need to be plugged...
