flying down the road trying to loosen my load.
The starter had been going downhill for a while. Started failing at 2500 miles as a very intermittent issue; cold and moisture in the air made it worse. Not the fuel rail, not the battery, not the rectifier or any wiring connections or ground issues - just a bad starter that continued to build resistance until it was drawing over 22 amps. It was on a first run scout. It finally failed 3/20/17 at aprox 3300 miles and of course I was at the FIRST EVER Indian Motorcycle PowWow in Chiefland Florida following Daytona Bike Week; at least I was with a bunch of great people who helped me roll my scout back on the trailer. I'm headed to the dealership today and hoping the mothership Polaris Indian takes care of this warranty issue straight away. I'll keep you posted - I took some videos of the testing and failure sequence but the files are too large to post here - maybe i'll figure out how to create a you tube video.
