  1. Indian Roadmaster
    I've been reading many, many complaints about how much heat is put out from the right side of the engine. I agree I hate it, and it's about the only thing I dislike about my Indian. I simply cannot believe the folks at Indian have not come up with a fix, retrofitted all Indians with it, and...
  2. Indian Scout Performance & Suspension
    New Indian scout owner (soon, ordered) here. Looking to get the Bassani two into one exhaust system. Curious if any owners have the short version and bags, and has the heat damaged the bags or otherwise caused any issues? I like the look of the short version better, but if there is any concerts...
  3. Thunder Stroke 111 Common Problems/Issues
    For you guys who have removed your catalytic converter on your 111, I hear a lot of folks say that it majorly reduced heat from the right side. My question is did it also significantly reduce heat from the furnace that sits right under your seat? Currently, my (new to me) 2018 stock Chieftain...
  4. Indian Chieftain
    I have 2019 Chieftain. Considering the rear engine deactivation, I have not yet experienced any major heat issues. However, I was wondering if de-catting (catalytic converter removal) would improve the exhaust note and performance.

    How well does your Thunderstroke handle the heat? Mine just purrs.
  6. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Hello folks. Last year, I did a 3,600 mile ride on Blue Destiny (my 2017 Roadmaster) from my home in Southern NJ, to Austin TX, to Orlando FL, to an Auto-train in that took me to Lorton VA, then back home. My trip to ATX and MCO was in July 2018 - when the daytime riding in every state south of...
  7. Indian Scout Sixty
    I remember seeing the E on my temp screen, but sometimes it’s not there. Today is was on my short ride: E174 for example. Is E just for engine? I’m positive it went away. Wonder if removing fiberglass wraps inside my stage ones for a day, then going back to normal fiberglass wrapped pipes...

  9. Indian Springfield
    Ok not really, but today was the first time in 1500 miles that I've felt as if there was. I was riding 80 mph down the highway so it wasn't like I was sitting in traffic getting hotter and hotter. I HAVE sat in traffic before and never felt the heat this bad before. I don't know if it was just...

    I had the Indian Stage 2 CAMS installed 2 weeks ago. This was done, after reading and learning right here on this site. Thanks to you guys, I know alot more than I did 9 mos ago. Now, my one and only issue with my 17 has been the right side heat!!! I ride in shorts, I know its not safe, but...
  11. Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    Before purchasing my 15 Vintage, most every professional review I read commented on the lack of heat experienced from the engine. The 14 and 15 chiefs of the time, including mine, came stock with Indian's Oil Cooler. Beginning in 16, i believe only the chieftains and RMs maintained the oil...
