  1. Push-Starting Scout

    Indian Scout
    I hate to add yet another starting thread, as there have been quite a few lately with winter setting in. But, I just wondered if the Scout can be push-started and if there is any special technique to it? With the ignition and fuel pump being electronic, I've got to think you'd still need to...
  2. Starter Clutch Scout

    Gilroy Indian Models
    Sometimes when I'm out for a ride and stop to get gas, I get back on the bike and hit the starter button and hear this awful sound. The sound is a little like grinding or something is trying to spin. It only does this when the bike is hot, on cold starts the bike is rad. After some research...
  3. RM Classic Wouldn't Start Today

    Indian Roadmaster
    Went down to my garage for the 2nd ride of the season this morning but when I punched the button the starter hardly groaned. It wouldn't turn over at all. But, the whole dash lit up just fine. I punched the button again and this time I got a loud pop - not like a backfire pop but like an...

    Indian Roadmaster
    I have a 2015 Roadmaster with some starter issues. I bought it last August with only 810 miles on it. Sitting just shy of 10K now. I started to throw the SPN 520262 FMI 4 code. This would come and go over the last few months. Then one day at work, it wouldn't start. I replaced the...
  5. First fail.

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Today my Scout failed to start. 800 miles. I supposed to go for a break in first service and it failed to start. Damn! I plugged in battery charger for an hour and a half.

  7. Scout Starter issues

    Indian Scout
    I bought mine in April. Started troubling me in May or so, dealer said, there's an issue with the 2017 scout starters, and fixed mine. After reaching almost 5000 miles, Now the starter is acting weird again. Does anyone else have the same problem with their 2017 or for that matter, any scout??

  9. Systemic Indian Scout Starter issue

    Indian Scout
    Hi All, I have a 2016 Scout ABS, about 2200 miles purchased in September of 2016. It came with stage 1 KD pipes. No other engine mods in play here. Lately, it has had difficulty starting. The starter may cycle up to two times before it starts. Why I say cycle I mean I push the stater button...
  10. Sometimes it starts, other times it takes a while to start.

    Indian Scout
    I have a starter issue and after lots of searching other forums and online I can't find much to answer any of my questions. Go through the normal ignition procedure, and when I press the starter button, Nothing happens. No noise, no spin, nothing. Press it a few times, never holding it down...
  11. Intermittent Scout Starting Issue

    Indian Scout
    Ok, need your help - sorry but this is going to be a bit long winded - bear with me. My girlfriends 2016 Scout 69 just clocked over 5000 miles. During the last 500 or so, it has started to develop an intermittent starting issue where it occasionally cranks but does not fire. It has never got to...

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I have a 2003 Indian Spirit. It's been sitting for a year on a battery tender. I checked the battery and it tested good at 2 diffrent Autozones today. Went to start it and turned the key and the lights come on and the red light comes on for a few seconds on the Heart Throb ICM. Bike is in RUN...
  14. Difficult to start at 33 degrees on two consecutive days.

    Indian Roadmaster
    The last two days I've found it difficult to start my Roadmaster. The first day it took four start attempts. Each time it would fire for one or two revolutions and then stop. Twice it backfired at the stop. The second day it took eight start attempts. It fired three or four times on the fourth...
