    Indian makes the absolute finest cruiser on the road.

    Drifters are the greatest deal in motorcycles. Fuck Indian. Drifters are water cooled, fuel injected and shaft driven! Best of all they are a Kawasaki.

    Why do so many people think this guy is hating on Indian motorbikes he's not and has even said that he still likes them.

    They fact that you nor Indian could just recalibrate the new odometer to add all the old miles blows my mind and is kinda laughable. Digital or analog either way its not impossible, honestly pretty simple. Love the channel and not trying to hate but if you sell so many bikes you should probably know how to work on them or at least know a mechanic thats not completely brain dead. Js.

    Wow you guys got boned big time from that Indian. That so called motorcycle dealer that returned the bike, saying you guys did something illegal with the mileage, must not have been too smart. The law on odometers is pretty clear throughout the whole country, and like you said the Indian dealer was breaking it with the 0 miles B.S. I really feel sorry for you guys, getting shafted by that bikes run of bad luck and the prices other shops charged you.

    Patently wrong and dishonest to blame Polaris/Indian for your self-made fiasco. I, for one, love to read about greedy profiteers losing their A$$ on simply re-selling items that they are not passionate about. As with any business, you must always factor-in the possible risks of the unknown, unforeseen.

    That's so weird. I used to work for Ford and the mileage is kept both in the ICP and the PCM. If you put a new one in you have to program it with the old mileage.

    Indians are just another boutique motorcycle manufacturer that will go away in another three or four years. It’s happened before, it’ll happen again. You don’t treat your customers like that and expect to be in business down the road. It just doesn’t happen.

    I love Indian, I part out Indian's. They are the best parts money makers out there.
    I also exported one out of the country for a fella that had a Salvage Title. When the Importing Country imported the bike they imported it as a non salvage bike. The customer scored on that Indian bike. Indian Bikes are my best money makers.

    At least you never compromised your integrity and your honour remains intact and probably more cemented.
    You know that you stand clear and tall albeit shorter in pocket.
    Indian was and will always be just that company, and you will see them go as you have before and you'll still be in business to tell the story.
    We have endless issues with them here in SA and very few people will buy an Indian a second time round so there's enough evidence alone to show that their growth is limited and their "victory" is short lived.
    You just continue doing business the right way, your treasures are not in this world.

    Good God. Talk about overthinking a problem, then creating one where none existed. The warranty service slip would've had the mileage on it. You use that to document the odometer statement. But this way you get to make a video blaming Indian for your stupidity.

    Like many things with the law it all comes down to intent. Obviously if you have a defective part it has to be replaced. As long as the odometer represents actual mileage, no problem. Just make sure the provenance is in order and shows what happened.

    I just subscribed to your channel and this is only the 2nd video I have watched. Small sample size. But in both videos what stuck out to me was you guys were HONEST. You could of road this bike for a few days and sold it with crazy low miles as I’m positive many people would have. If you replace a Harley gauge the manufacturer replaces with accurate miles. Ultimately imo it falls on the Indian dealer. And from my experience this has been the shortfall Indian has suffered since trying to reinvent themselves. Hopefully Polaris can get dealership issues fixed for Indian customers. In this case you were an Indian customer that didn’t get the correct service for your problems. Keep up the Honest work

    Examples of odometer fraud may involve:
    Disconnection of the odometer.
    Resetting the odometer in any way.
    Altering the numbers.
    Replacing the odometer from a vehicle without providing required notice.

    Nooooo , Indian did the correct thing, you altered the milage. You had to let the buyer know tha the speedometer no longer reflects the actual mileage. Even if it was 1 mile , the mileage was not correct and not disclosing that is illegal.

    Sounds like you need to be taking some ass lubricant to the Indian dealer if you need any service done. Your experience doesnt give me a good feeling with these dealerships. If you were going to keep the bike for yourself things would had worked out much better for you. I never take a bike to have a tire put on. I only take the wheel and It’s always much faster and cheaper. Peace
