Ok so all this writing about noise from engine and what not, I now ride my Vintage listening for shit. Thanks a lot! Seriously now I'm freaked out. Is something rattling? Is my engine ticking? WOW
My 2014 Chieftain is quieter than my 99 Road King Classic, my 94 FatBoy, my 86 Softail, my 78 FLH, my 72 SuperGlide, and my 69 XLCH Sportster.... Hell...it is quieter than my 63 Honda 305 Dream!!! Now my 2005 Honda Goldwing was quieter than my Chieftain but then it is quieter than every car I ever owned.
I can believe some Indian bikes make noise but that is why we have warranties. If it turns into a long term issue, Indian will fix it. Let's be honest here....do you really believe that every bike, made by every manufacturer has been perfect and Indian is supposed to be different?
There are going to be some bikes with issues but it is not going to be across the line.
I have called Polaris what a joke,they said "they have had no other complaints about engine noise)Bull Shit!the doctor, call Polaris / Indian and get them involved.
