  6. Leaking /rattling exhaust at the head.

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I'm sure I saw a thread about exhaust leaking and I did a search for leaking but got a whole stack of oil reference threads. When I start my bike form cold I gets tinny rattle and a leaking gas sound from the back cylinder exhaust joint. The previous owner told me the dealers on the first said...
