  1. 111 VOLTAGE REG. PRICE $$

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    So... I was taking my Honey to Barkhamstead Reservoir on a gorgeous late summer day when I realize my '17 Vintage is no longer charging! So I bring my Honey home and nurse it to the Indian dealer thinking it is probably the voltage regulator and a warranty item. It is chaos at the dealership...

  8. Voltage Regulators

    Indian Chieftain
    Hey guys I'm looking for opinions. I have Chieftain and have been doing a lot of reading up. It appears that the Chieftains voltage regulators have a track record of going bad. Not isolated to a certain year but, all years. Talked to a guy that had his regulator replaced twice in three years...

  12. Electrical issues

    Indian Chief Classic
    I have a 2016 Chief Classic with 2350 miles. This year it has gone through 3 batteries and a voltage regulator. All have been covered under warranty but it has left me wondering if I should trade it for another brand before the warranty ends next June. Who else has had these issues?
  13. Another Voltage Regulator Failure

    Indian Chieftain
    This is my assumption of course and will verify when the dealer checks it out. Symptom is my charging voltage (quite suddenly) dropped to 11.9 volts. I charged the battery and it measured 12.7 volts (all reading taken at the battery). I started the bike and the voltage dropped to 11.9 even with...

  20. High Voltage Error 2015 Vintage

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Riding today and my speedo stopped working. Looked down on my display and it read OV 18.2. The manual says that if the voltage remains over 15 volts for over 10 seconds, this will flash. This is the first issue I've had with my bike. The manual doesn't state why it is over 15 volts. Any ideas...
