    Indian Chieftain
    Hey - I'm the first guy to say "You hear way more complaints than good comments" etc. etc. etc. Well, I've had enough and I am going to rant here! Dammit. This is also not disputing that some of us have had bad experiences, but... I have a 2017 Chieftain and I have received good support from...

    Indian Scout
    I have a 2018 Scout and my factory warranty will expire in January 2020. I never buy an extended warranty when I purchase any vehicle because I know that they will offer me that same deal at the end of the factory warranty. So...I'm starting to get the mailings to purchase the extended...

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Man, does Indian need some better attorneys. Just FYI, here's a rundown of my recent Protection Plan purchase and how they don't do themselves any favors when they confuse the issue of when warranties -- Protection Plans, as they call them -- start, stop, renew and expire. I wanted to buy it...
  4. Extended Warranty

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    What are the thoughts behind buying the extended warranty. I am not really too much of a do-it-yourself kind of guy, but I am willing to learn. I do plan on doing some longer trips and it seems that the "loss of use" feature seems nice. Anybody have any experiences positive or negative with the...
  5. Crotch coolers and Indian warranty

    Indian Roadmaster
    Good day group. I was socializing at my local dealer and was asking if they stock the Crotch Coolers. I was advised that Indian could refuse engine failure warranty should they find you use a crotch cooler or even the Kuryakyn heat deflectors. Not factory installed, no warranty. Any views, I...

    Indian Scout Sixty
    I bought myself a brand new Indian scout sixty in October 2018. On the test ride I noticed when I loosened my handgrips a little the bike pulled hard right immediately. I tested it in various parts of the crest of the road and it always went hard right. I told the dealership I’d take a black...
