Couldn't agree more .... My current service writer Joey is a Silver Certified Polaris Tech .... Smart young man with a good technical background .... Makes a huge difference .....
'Grayrat - I was reading on some of the responses regarding the negative talk for the Ride Now dealer chains. I looked at their website & was pretty impressed with the fact they own 41 dealerships across the country with some being Indian Motorcycle dealerships. But my personal experience with the big places wasn’t always good. Mike at holeshot is the real deal. I can tell he really loves what he does. It’s always a pleasure to see people do what they love.

Only if you are a Ride Now dealership. And that is before the "good mechanic" quit. Ask Holeshot Mike. Ask my good mechanics in 2 other states. Just image a cook starting out at McDonalds and working his way up to Executive chef. The company being bought out by Ride Now or Moretti, and over a years time they put him back as a line cook flipping burgers at 1/2 his (or her) previous wages.I find that some dealerships with a great mechanic(s) always have a service writer who used to run the Tilt-A-Whirl at the carnival. Why would you put someone who has no mechanical knowledge or ability in a supervisory or gatekeeper position.
Hell yah they should. You have the pulse of us in this here forum for sure! It might be odd to say this as I am up in NJ I thank you anyway for looking out for us riders like that. 60 miles one way really? That’s awesome!!!'
Thanks Bro ..... One more thing about us ..... I only hire Bikers ..... I want the guy on the phone you're talking with to know what it feels like for your bike to be having issues ... If you don't really ride you don't know the feeling of being broke down on the side of the road with your scoot .... I've dispatched employees to drive 60 miles to pick up a stranded Biker at 5:30 in the afternoon when Dealers 10 minutes away wouldn't do shit to help them .... Karma's a * ... Those dealers should be ashamed of themselves ....
Thanks Bro .... We're all go no quit .... All my guys ride .... Even our lot tech is a dedicated Rider .... If Cody is coming for you You're in very good hands .... We'll get you off the side of the road and back to riding asap .... Proud of all my guys .... They're the best of the best and I'm honored to lead them ....Hell yah they should. You have the pulse of us in this here forum for sure! It might be odd to say this as I am up in NJ I thank you anyway for looking out for us riders like that. 60 miles one way really? That’s awesome!!!

thanks Mike. 3 week old bike - crazyOkay ... So there is a bulletin out for this issue that all Indian Dealers are aware of ... It's simply to check the vac sync between the throttle plates and if they are out more than 1.5 Hg they are recommending replacement of the throttle bodies ... There is also a reflash to be done. I've performed this procedure on many problematic Challengers that were sent to me by Indian. Done correctly it is 100% effective at solving surging/idle issues.
That's doing it right .... Cudos to your dealer ... sounds like some one I need to reach out to in regards to joing our private dealer network ....Sounds like your dealer didn't check it properly before it left. The bulletin was released just before I was going to pick mine up and my dealer made me wait a bit so they could properly check it.
If your bike wasn't a first run then Your "UI" or Unit Inquiry probably would have flagged your VIN for the vac check. Honestly I think They are beginning to tune them at the factory because the latest bikes have been getting are pretty good ... Not Perfect but pretty sure they'd have been fine without tweaking .... You'd know it if it wasn't right ... Stumbles off idle, Excessive throttle lag, surging at idle etc .....What are the details on this bulletin? Is there a number for it or something? I'd be curious if my dealer has a record of this being done to my bike--which I got last month.
