    Before you decide the factory shocks on the scout are inefficient, make sure you adjust them properly! Too many people swapping them out, spending hundreds (actually more like a thousand) to improve something they didn't take the time to try to calibrate properly. Follow these instructions to...
  2. Indian Chieftain
    Country roads in Australia in a terrible state. Lots of pot holes, corrugations, tar waves. Experiencing a degree of chattering/patter in downhill corners that have ripples and corrugations . Anyone changed original Chieftain fork springs to Progressive or RaceTech or some other brand? Did it...
  3. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I’ve been very curious about this topic and I don’t think it has been touched on much. I’ve seen a few bikes (chief/chieftains) with ohlins front forks. Wondering who is making these triple trees, it’s pretty clear they are not available to the public. I tried to get some info out of D&D...
  4. Indian Chieftain
    Hi, as a long distance bad narrow highways traveler I thought to replace the good original suspension front and rear with Hyperpro springs and oil kit. Reminding you I have a 19" front on my Chieftain Limited 2018 It replaces: front fork springs and oil (OEM unknown, Paioli? Fox?) rear shock's...
  5. Indian Scout Performance & Suspension
    I recently install new rear suspension on my Bobber. Wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be but now I just need to learn how to tune them. Nonetheless, I seem to have run into a minor complication. Because I use spacers between the frame and the new shocks, the top exhaust no longer fits...
  6. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Hey all, I'm thinking about upgrading the rear suspension on my 2019 Scout Bobber to the Progressive 444 but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to go with the 11" or the 11.5"? I want to keep the height of the bike the same as it is stock. Any insight?
  7. Indian FTR1200
    I recently bought a 2019 FTR S. I really like the power and handling, however the suspension is overly harsh. Has anyone found a solution for that? I know that there are damper adjustments, but even full out the compression damping feels too stiff to me. Ideas? Also, if there is someone who has...

  9. Indian Scout Performance & Suspension
    I recently purchased and fitted the Darkscout Suspension Kit from Prop Engineering in Australia. I did the rear springs myself and had the front springs and oil professionally done at a local motorcycle suspension specialist. I thought I would do an in-depth review and follow up with a Youtube...

    Is a mono shock design in the Scout's future or is this just a rumor?
  11. Indian Scout Performance & Suspension
    Currently looking at the Scout Bobber but the suspension, to me, seems very stiff. Any recommendations on aftermarket suspension that will fit? Have any people replaced their stock suspension on the bobber? Thanks.
  12. Indian Scout
    Before i go out and drop $1000 on a new setup can anything be done to ease the ride on my scout? Im 145lbs and it feels like I'm feeling every pebble and divit in the road. The rear suspension is set to the factory recommended length, but does not compress at all when I sit on the bike @[email protected]
  13. Thunder Stroke 111 Performance & Suspension
    I have a 2017 chieftain. In addition to the reach seat, I was given three options to lower it in hopes of flat footing it. 1. Adjustable shock 2. Lowering link 3. Air ride Option 3 not in the budget I went with option 1 the Arlen Ness adjustable shock preload to the shortest and 0...

    As many here know, I'm a little bit of performance/feature/adjustment junky. I have mentioned my dismay to that aspect when it come to a lack of features when it comes to American bikes.. so many completely overlook this, many forget to realize that often, performance bits can when used...
  15. Indian Scout Sixty
    I'm one of those who has found the Scout 60 suspension entirely adequate. Nevertheless, I'm going to try some Bullit shocks this week, and I have progressive fork springs on order. My hope for the shocks in that they may keep the rear wheel on the ground more firmly over bumpy corners, and so...
  16. Indian Scout
    I know suspension is a topic that has been beaten to death, but I did a query and did not see much discussion or reviews on the FOX shocks for our Scout. I have been reading post after post and although I would like to get the OHLINS or RACE-TECH, I am concerned my now on order 'Viking Lamellar...

    Hey folks. I finally got around to getting my Dark Scout classic suspension kit on my bike, and got to give her a good flogging.. First thing to say, I'm pretty Damn sure I've waited longer in line at McDonalds for a McDub, then I had to wait for the kit to come from the other side of the globe...
  19. Indian Scout Performance & Suspension
    I am considering purchasing a Scout. Comfort for 4 hour rides with break every hour is the key goal. I have back problems. I don't mind upgrading the suspension. I have heard good things about Ikon. But what is the process for ordering the shocks? Can I install it without raising the bike on a...
