    I just did my break-in service (whoo for 500mi) and I set my torque wrench to under-spec and it tore the plug head right off! I was lucky because it left just enough of the 6mm Hex port that I was able to take it out. I was in a bind so I went and bought a m12x1.5 plug from Oriley’s. This is a...

    I know that the Scout owner's manual says to change your oil every 10,000 miles, but I've always been in the habit of changing the oil at the end of every riding season on my old bike, regardless of how many miles I've ridden. I bought my 2018 Scout in January last year and put 2,300 miles on...

I would just like conformation that I have no choice but my wallet being pillaged...:( Anyways, I am a new rider, and fairly mechanically inclined, so I'm going to do my own oil changes to save $$$.

    Anyone know the exact size of the oil drain holes? I have use these on several vehicles Dorman Products - 092-007 and would like to purchase for my RM as a preventive measure. In addition to preventing stripping the hole, they also make it a tool free operation and less messy.

    I have a 2016 Roadmaster and am going on a 6,000 mile trip over 22 days. I just hit the 500 mile mark and will have the full service completed before I take off in May. I'm wondering if there will be any issues taking the bike on such a long trip without changing the oil or having any of the...

    When changing oil on your Indian, Victory, Harley, or any bike with a spin on filter, you might consider pre-filling the filter so all the paper is saturated, then spin it on. With Indian, now add your 5 1/2 quarts of oil. Depending on filter size, about 6 to 8 oz. of extra oil has been added...

    Now for an oil question, but not the usual debate :-) We have an Indian Scout with about 3800 miles on it, meaning that it still has the oil in it from the 500 mile service last June. I presume the dealer put in the same Polaris full synthetic, just as comes with the OEM Indian oil change kit...
