  1. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I have a strange noise on my Indian Scout Bobber 2019, apparently it´s the fork, or maybe this noise is normal, I don't know. In the video you can hear the noise when finishing the speed bump . Thank you very much for your comments.

  8. Indian Chief Vintage
    So how many of you Chief Vintage owners have a scary clunk in your rear suspension? At slow speed over bumps and holes the rear suspension make a loud clunking sound, you also hear it when you take off. No it is not the shock bottoming out! It rides great and it has been adjusted to stiff...
