  1. Handlebar Vibrations

    Indian Scout
    Hi All, I’m struggling with handlebar vibration on my 2017 Scout 69. I tipped the bike onto the left side and filled the handlebars from the throttle end with #5 lead shot. I tapped it down with a rubber mallet as I filled a little bit at a time and capped it off with a small plug of goop at...
  2. How to install leather grips/wraps

    Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    I recently installed hand grips onto my chief Dark Horse. Before doing so, I did tons of research online to find out the best way to do it. After all the time I spent trying to find tricks and tips this was the best way I could come up with. By the sounds of it the leather cord you get with the...
  3. Carpal Tunnel?

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Hi All, When riding more then 45 minutes or so, my right hand starts getting numb and pain starts shooting up the underside of my arm and into my armpit. I have already fitted cushion grips and upgraded tires and suspension (there used to be a lot more vibration then I have now). I have also...

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion

  6. Handle bar angle Lowered

    Indian Scout
    So I lowered the angle of the handle bars to accommodate my frame better. It is comfortable, may need some tweaking to get just right. The engine sounds quieter? It seems to run better, and changing gears is smoother I have a more natural grip on the throttle and clutch lever, rather than a...
  7. Commander 2s not sliding

    Indian Scout Sixty
    I dropped into one of our dealers last week and he asked what I thought of my Michelin Commander 2s. I affirmed that they offer more grip than the Kendas did, but not as much as I'd hoped - on greasy roads, I'd still had a couple of minor slides and one occasion when the back wheel spun under...
