Well had the 116 upgrade this winter, ran like on steroids.
About 1000 k now back in the shop, starter gear teeth left loose and also the engine starter gear teeth missing.
Engine has to come out to proceed with Indians case protocol, they want pictures etc...
Im not HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!
Anyone have this issue?

One of the things Indian needs to add to the BBK kit is a beefed up starter
