And tell us if any major issues etc. We also had one guy post about his fuel pump going out at 135k mi but I do not recall who it was.

I had 100K on my 2014 Chieftain when I traded it for my 2019 Chieftain which now has turned 39K. You guys just have to get out and do some lunch runs.
Do you have any odometer photos of your 2014 or trade-in paperwork showing your mileage ? Methinks cumulative mileage on your Indian machines qualifies...

The only odometer photo I have of my 2014 was when the kickstand was replaced under a recall at 89,815 miles. I'll have to try and figure out how to post it, along with my 2019 current mileage.
Other than the TPMS issues and recalls, no problems on the 2014 . I did have to change the fork seals at 92K.
The 2019 has not been back to the shop even for the gear position recall. Tires, oil and spark plug changes done on my own.

@HINK you must be close on yours.... Life has slowed me down a bit, but we did roll over 89k last night on our Wednesday dinner ride.

Only 87k here. It’s been a low-mileage year and having a disabled son contributes to that — long trips take some logistical juggling for daycare etc.

Next year I bet we have a ton of people who join the club!

I'm at 106,000 now on my 2014 chieftain. My picture is from my ride to Sturgis and back with 3,649 miles and 105,000 miles. I've had to replace the clutch twice do to my aggressive riding. Also had to replace my starter since it went out 1,000 miles before I got home. Had to push start from Cody wyoming to washington. Oh and changed out fork seals at about 96,000 miles. Other than that I do all of my own services. I use amsoil. No regrets with my decision on buying my chieftain.

Some serious (s)miles....that's for sure!!!! Nice to know these bikes/engines have been built to last. Between my 6 bikes over 22 years, I have close to 190,000 miles, but I know that doesn't count here.....as those miles should be on ONE bike/odo. Congrats to the 100K mile club!!! Southern riders are at an advantage....they get to ride year round. Us northern clime riders only get a good 8 months or so....sometimes less if winter comes early....and sticks around late!!! Stay safe....lot of idiots behind those 4-wheel windshields!!!!!!

Here in Northwestern Ohio I usually get about 7 months of riding per year. Sometimes eight. Some years have had mild winters where I have taken rides. I never seem to keep a bike long enough to accumulate that many miles.
