  1. How good is Indian on warranty?

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I bought a new Springfield Dark Horse 1 month ago. I took it on a 300 mile morning ride on some pretty fast roads. The side cover on the right side flew off while going about 80 mph and i went to the local Indian dealer to see if that was covered under warranty. This was last saturday, and it...

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    This could work easy enough! Pop a few holes in the very front of cover (the bend in area) Both sides and lace em up! Geeeze it might even look kool. Seems like a kool deal. Use leather lace, When and if one flies off you'll get to keep it. Save's over 300.00

    Lost the plastic terminal connector cover under the seat. You know, the one held in by those cheap rubber grommets. 85 mph and I feel a bump under my right thigh and knew what it was.

  8. Issue with upper cover "blowing" off?

    Indian Chieftain
    Read another post on this and it just happened to me over the weekend. My right hand side upper cover (the piece that snaps in directly under the seat) blew off while riding. Ofcourse I didn't notice until I was already home. They want $350+ for that piece and it's on backorder. FML. Is this a...

    Indian Chieftain
    So I took the seat and side panels off my 2015 Chieftain for the first time to install a Crotch Cooler and I have a question: Has anyone anywhere ever in the history of the Chieftain put the left side panel on without taking the passenger foot peg off first?

  13. My $10 Side Panel Insurance

    Indian Motorcycle Tech Q & A
    It was just a few months ago I lost a pair of freshly painted side panels from my vintage BMW airhead. In stark departure from normal excellent Teutonic engineering, BMW inexplicably decided that the way to hold these panels on the bike was to use a small bungee cord connecting the two together...
  14. Panels Removable?

    Indian Dark Horse
    This will likely sound blasphemous, but are the side panels removable on the Dark Horse which cover part of the rear tire? And is the cowling around the headlight removable? Has anyone taken these parts off their bike for any reason? If so, was it easy to remove? How did it look? Can anyone...
