    Just an FYI

    Posted By BikersPost 2 hours ago

    Indian Motorcycle Company has recalled 4,185 of certain 2017-2018 Indian Scout, Scout Sixty, and Scout Bobber motorcycles.

    Indian says the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) may have air remaining in the system after the assembly process, which can make the brakes less effective and increase risk of a crash.

    Riders may be able to detect the problem if the brake lever has a soft feel and brakes seem to be ineffective.

    Indian will notify owners, and dealers will bleed the front and rear anti-lock brake system, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2018. Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian’s number for this recall is I-18-07.

    Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. The NHTSA Campaign Number is: 18V416000

    I get a kick out of statements like this...
    "Riders may be able to detect the problem if the brake lever has a soft feel and brakes seem to be ineffective."

    So you mean if the brakes don't work that may mean there is a problem...too funny.

    My God the amount of money Polaris spends in recalls a year is insane! Between victory, their ATVs, the slingshot and now Indian.. holy crap they loose a lot of $$$ due to QC related issues...

    When i got my CCT it had 3800 kilometers on the clock but was never sold, the front brake was "soft" and felt like there was air in the system, got a big can of brake fluid and flushed the system, much better now .... So yes i could imagine the guy who used to install "loose" victory battery cables is now promoted to the Indian scout brake assembly line ?

    That guy is actually a HD fan, but likes to loosen all the batteries on victory ... Now he works on Indian ... Hahahahaha
