I read here that a 6 digit engine # followed by "RB" meant rebuilt. I have a rebuilt PP100 but the 6 digit number is followed by an "RP", not an RB. Not misreading it. It's plain as the numbers are. Any ideas?
I never thought of repowered, but that could be a possibility. Bike was in Ohio at an Indian dealer. They removed the motor, crated and shipped it to a machine shop in PA for rebuild.i even googled it an didn't find anything. perhaps re-powered . but that is just a guess.
Tkx..... See my reply to Wildmandmc. Motor was shipped back to Ohio and reinstalled. I'm the 3rd owner, but the 2nd owner I bought it from had all the paperwork on it from all the dealer services and the rebuild papers. Looks like it had a lot of stuff replaced (stator, starter,drive belt, ignition, chain compensator gear, jackshaft, etc. All this plus rebuild was done at 7606If I got the story correct, it means "Re Placement" engine. Most likely engine was replaced under warranty prior to Gilroy's collapse. Weather 'the issues" were addressed and corrected is another issue. If any doubt, get it "checked out"
After reviewing my rebuild papers, I noticed it was fixed/rebuilt by P&M Power train in PA. Guess that's a good thing, huh?!The thing you'll want to watch out for, or check machine shop invoice to make sure it was addressed is described here:
Indian PowerPlus 100 problems & solutions
There were all kinds of crank shaft / crank case issues on the PP 100.
Some had oil pump issues too if memory serves.
These "issues" are, more than likely, the reason the 1st motor was replaced.
Once those issues were addressed it is a decent motor.
