Hi, New to indians. Just getting back riding after 16 years. Purchased a spirit from neighbors. It has 3300 mi on it. He got to old and dropedthe bike. Came with new indian parts directionals, windshield, front fender new fender tips etc. Biggest issue. Transmission shifting rod turns but nobodies home inside. Tried to remove trans. Cover but can't get to front bolt because of down tube that front of oil tank bolts to. Does anyone have experance? I was told by a HD guy he said that S S techs didn't assemble motors so they aren't as good. Brother in law advised I purchase a Jess James gasket kit because these are noted for leakage. Any advice on these models would be greatly appreciated. Not in a hurry upstate ny riding season over. Just want to enjoy a funand headache free 2015. Have a great day.
