Safety

Safe Riding Practices WARNING

Improper use of a motorcycle can result in serious injury or death to you, your passenger and others. To minimize the risk of injury, read and understand the information contained in this section before operating the motorcycle. This section contains safety information specific to the INDIAN motorcycle, as well as information about general motorcycle safety. Anyone who rides the motorcycle (operators and passengers) must follow these safety precautions.

Motorcycling has inherent risks.

You can minimize those risks, but you can’t eliminate them completely. Even if you’re an experienced motorcycle operator or passenger, read all of the safety information in this manual before operating the motorcycle.

• Take a rider education course from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation or another qualified instructor. The course will help you develop or refresh your expertise in safe riding habits through instruction and riding. For information on Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider education courses in your area, call 1-800-446-9227 or visit www.msf-usa.org.

• Read and understand all information in this rider’s manual.

• Observe all maintenance requirements specified in this manual. See the INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Service Manual or an authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer.

Design characteristics affect how you should ride the motorcycle:

• The motorcycle is designed for on-road use with one rider (and one passenger if the motorcycle is equipped with a passenger seat and passenger footrests). Never exceed the GVWR or the GAWR. Refer to the Specifications section of this manual (page 111) or the Manufacturing Information/VIN label on the motorcycle frame for model specific information.

• Riding off-road, riding with more than one passenger, or carrying weight exceeding the maximum weight rating can make handling difficult, which could cause loss of control.

• During the first 500 miles (800 km) of operation, follow all break-in procedures as outlined in the break-in section beginning on page 49. Failure to do so can result in serious engine damage.

• Some motorcycles include saddlebags, a windshield, a trunk, lower fairings or a passenger backrest as standard equipment. To maintain stability, be prepared to reduce the operating speed of motorcycles equipped with these items.

Safety

Safe Riding Practices

Follow these general safe riding practices:

• Before each ride, perform the pre-ride inspections as outlined beginning on page 39. Failure to do so may result in damage to the motorcycle or an accident.

• Until you're thoroughly familiar with the motorcycle and all of its controls, practice riding where there is little or no traffic. Practice riding at a moderate speed on various road surfaces and in different weather conditions.

• Know your skills and limits, and ride within them.

• Allow only licensed, experienced operators to ride your motorcycle, and then only after they have become familiar with its controls and operation. Make sure all riders read and understand this rider’s manual before riding.

• Do not ride when you're fatigued, ill or under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs or any other drugs. Fatigue, illness, alcohol and drugs can cause drowsiness, loss of coordination and loss of balance. They can also affect your awareness and judgment.

• If your motorcycle operates abnormally, correct the problem immediately. See the INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Service Manual or an authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer.

• Ride defensively, as if you are invisible to other motorists, even in broad daylight. A motorist's failure to see or

recognize a motorcycle is the leading cause of automobile/

motorcycle accidents. Ride where you're clearly visible to other motorists, and observe their behavior carefully.

• Be especially cautious at intersections, as these are the most likely places for an accident.

• To prevent loss of control, keep your hands on the handlebars and your feet on the footrests.

• Be aware that a highway bar is not designed to protect the rider from injury in a collision.

• Obey the speed limit and adjust your speed and riding technique based on road, weather and traffic conditions. As you travel faster, the influence of all other conditions increases, which can affect the motorcycle's stability and increase the possibility of losing control.

Safety

Safe Riding Practices

• Reduce speed when: - The road has potholes or is otherwise rough or uneven.

- The road contains sand, dirt, gravel or other loose sub stances.

- The road is wet, icy or oily.

- The road contains painted surfaces, manhole covers, metal grating, railway crossings or other slippery surfaces.

- The weather is windy, rainy or otherwise causing slippery or rapidly changing conditions.

- Traffic is heavy, congested, not allowing sufficient space between vehicles or otherwise not flowing smoothly.

- You are being passed in either direction by a large vehicle that may produce a wind blast in its wake.

• When approaching a curve, choose a speed and lean angle that allows you to pass through the curve in your own lane without applying the brakes. Excessive speed, improper lean angle or braking in a curve can cause loss of control.

• Ground clearance is reduced when the motorcycle leans. Do not allow components to contact the road surface when leaning the motorcycle in a curve, as this could cause loss of control.

• Do not tow a trailer. Towing a trailer can make the motorcycle hard to handle.

• Retract the sidestand fully before riding. If the sidestand is not fully retracted, it could contact the road surface and cause loss of control.

• To maximize braking effectiveness, use the front and rear brakes together. Be aware of the following braking facts and practices: - The rear brake provides 40% of the motorcycle's stopping power, at most. Use the front and rear brakes together.

- To avoid skidding, apply the brakes gradually when the road is wet or rough, or contains loose or other slippery substances.

- If possible, avoid applying the brakes while making a turn. Motorcycle tires have less traction during turns, so braking will increase the possibility of skidding. Bring the motorcycle to the upright position before applying the brakes.

- With new pads and rotors, allow up to 250 miles (500 km) of operation in urban driving conditions (not highway cruising) to allow pads to mate with new rotors. Brakes should be used frequently. During this time brake performance will be less effective. Avoid using brakes harshly unless in an emergency. Brake efficiency will gradually increase during this seating period.

Anti-Lock Brake System Response

• When the anti-lock brakes engage during a braking event, the rider will feel pulsing at the brake levers.

Continue to apply steady pressure to the brakes for the best stopping performance.

Safety

Safe Riding Practices

Carrying a Passenger

Do not carry a passenger unless the motorcycle is equipped with passenger seat and passenger footrests.

To carry a passenger safely:

• Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your motorcycle. Refer to the Specifications section of this manual (page 111) or the Manufacturing Information/VIN label on the motorcycle frame for model-specific information.

• Adjust ride height as needed. See page and cause loss of control.

71.

• Direct the passenger to hold onto you or to the passenger hand strap with both hands and to keep both feet on the passenger footrests. Do not carry a passenger who cannot place both feet firmly on the passenger footrests. A passenger who is not holding on properly, or who cannot reach the passenger footrests, can shift their body erratically, which can make the motorcycle hard to handle • Before riding, be sure your passenger knows safe riding procedures. Discuss any safety information unfamiliar to your passenger. A passenger who is unaware of safe riding procedures may distract you or make movements that make the motorcycle hard to handle.

• Adjust your riding style to compensate for the differences in handling, acceleration and braking caused by the additional weight of the passenger. Failure to do so can cause loss of control.

11

Safety

Safe Riding Practices

Protective Apparel

Wear protective apparel to decrease the risk of injury and increase riding comfort.

• Always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards. Approved helmets in the USA and Canada bear a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) label. Laws in some areas require that you wear an approved helmet. Head injuries are the leading cause of fatalities in accidents involving motorcycles. Statistics prove that an approved helmet is the most effective protection in preventing or reducing head injuries.

• Wear eye protection to protect eyes from wind or airborne particles and objects. Laws in some areas require that you wear eye protection. We recommend that you wear approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8, Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eyewear is kept clean. • All riders should wear bright or light-colored and/or reflective clothing to improve visibility to other motorists.

A motorist's failure to see or recognize a motorcycle is the leading cause of automobile/motorcycle accidents.

• Wear gloves, a jacket, heavy boots and long pants to prevent or reduce injury from abrasions, lacerations or burns should the motorcycle fall. Wear boots with low heels, as high heels can catch on pedals or footrests. The combination of boots and pants should completely cover legs, ankles and feet, protecting skin from engine and exhaust system heat.

• Do not wear loose, flowing clothing or long boot laces, as they can catch on handlebars, levers or footrests, or they can become entangled in the wheels, causing loss of control and serious injury.

12

Safety

Use of Accessories

Because INDIAN MOTORCYCLE cannot test and make specific recommendations concerning every accessory or combination of accessories sold, the operator is responsible for determining that the motorcycle can be safely operated with any accessories or additional weight. Use the following guidelines when choosing and installing accessories: • Do not install accessories that impair operator visibility or the stability, handling or operation of the motorcycle. Before installing an accessory, be sure that it does not: - reduce ground clearance when the motorcycle is either leaned or in a vertical position; - limit suspension or steering travel or your ability to operate controls; - displace you from your normal riding position; - obscure lights or reflectors.

• Bulky, heavy or large accessories can cause instability (due to the lifting or buffeting effects of wind) and loss of control.

• Do not install electrical accessories that exceed the capacity of the motorcycle’s electrical system. Never install higher wattage light bulbs than those supplied as original equipment. An electrical failure could result and cause hazardous loss of engine power or lights, or damage to the electrical system. See page 94.

• Use only genuine INDIAN MOTORCYCLE accessories designed for your model. See your authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer.

• Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your motorcycle. • Adjust ride height as needed. See page 71.

13

Safety

Modifications

Modifying the motorcycle by removing any equipment or by adding equipment not approved by the manufacturer may void your warranty. Such modifications could make the motorcycle unsafe to ride and could result in severe injury to operator or passenger, as well as damage to the motorcycle. Some modifications may not be legal in your area of operation. If in doubt, contact your authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer.

Parking the Motorcycle

When leaving the motorcycle unattended, turn the engine off. Park the motorcycle where people are not likely to touch the hot engine or exhaust system or place combustible materials near these hot areas. Do not park near a flammable source such as a kerosene heater or an open flame, where hot components could ignite combustible materials.

Park the motorcycle on a firm, level surface. Sloped or soft surfaces may not support the motorcycle. If you must park on a slope or soft surface, follow the precautions outlined on page 59.

Saddlebags, Trunk and Other Storage

Whenever operating a motorcycle equipped with cargo storage features such as saddlebags, a trunk, racks, glove boxes or other storage compartments: • Never ride at excessive speeds. Storage features and cargo, combined with the lifting or buffeting effects of wind, can make a motorcycle unstable and cause loss of control.

• Distribute weight evenly on each side of the motorcycle.

• Do not exceed the individual weight limit of any saddlebag, trunk or other storage compartment. Refer to the storage capacity label located on or near the storage feature. See page 20.

• NEVER EXCEED the GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING (GVWR) or the GROSS AXLE WEIGHT RATING (GAWR), regardless of whether or not any storage feature is loaded to capacity. Exceeding the weight rating can reduce stability and handling and cause loss of control.

• Adjust ride height as needed. See page 71.

14

Safety

Carrying Cargo

Use the following guidelines when attaching cargo or accessories to the motorcycle. Where applicable, these guidelines also refer to the contents of any accessories.

• Keep cargo and accessory weight to a minimum, and keep items as close to the motorcycle as possible to minimize a change in the motorcycle’s center of gravity. Changing the center of gravity can cause loss of stability and handling and could cause loss of control.

• Adjust ride height as needed. See page 71.

• Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your motorcycle. • Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the motorcycle. Maintain even weight distribution by checking accessories and cargo to make sure they’re securely attached to the motorcycle before riding and whenever you take a break from riding. Uneven weight distribution or sudden shifting of accessories or cargo while you’re riding may cause difficult handling, loss of control and driving hazards for other motorists (if cargo falls from the motorcycle).

• Do not attach large or heavy cargo such as sleeping bags, duffel bags or tents to the handlebars, front fork area or front fender. Cargo or accessories placed in these areas can cause instability (due to improper weight distribution or aerodynamic changes) and could cause loss of control. Such items can also block air flow to the engine and cause overheating that can damage the engine.

• Do not exceed the maximum cargo weight limit of any accessory (see accessory instructions and labels). Do not attach cargo to an accessory not designed for that purpose. Either circumstance could result in an accessory failure that could cause loss of control.

• Always obey posted speed limits.

• Do not attach anything to the motorcycle unless specifically designed for that purpose by INDIAN MOTORCYCLE.

15

Safety

Transporting the Motorcycle

If you must transport the motorcycle: • Use a truck or trailer. Do not tow the motorcycle with another vehicle, as towing will impair the motorcycle's steering and handling.

• Position and restrain the motorcycle in an upright position. If the motorcycle leans to one side, gasoline may leak from the fuel tank and result in a fire hazard or damage to the finish.

• Do not restrain the motorcycle using the handlebars.

• Loop tiedown straps (from the front) up and over the lower triple clamp, using care to not interfere with wiring and brake lines. Place tiedowns as wide apart as possible on the truck or trailer bed for best stability.

Fuel and Exhaust Safety

Always heed these fuel safety warnings when refueling or servicing the fuel system. For fueling procedures, see page 51.

WARNING

Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive under certain conditions.

• Always exercise extreme caution whenever handling gasoline.

• Always turn off the engine before refueling.

• Always refuel outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. • Open the fuel cap slowly. Do not overfill the tank. Do not fill the tank neck.

• Do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks in or near the area where refueling is performed or where gasoline is stored.

Gasoline and gasoline vapors are poisonous and can cause severe injury.

• Do not swallow gasoline, inhale gasoline vapors, or spill gasoline. If you swallow gasoline, inhale more than a few breaths of gasoline vapor, or get gasoline in your eyes, see a physician immediately.

• If gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash it off with soap and water and change clothing.

Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can cause loss of consciousness or death in a short time.

• Never start the engine or let it run in an enclosed area.

• Never inhale exhaust gases.

16

Safety

Safety Maintenance WARNING

Failure to perform safety maintenance as recommended can result in difficult handling and loss of control, which could result in serious injury

or death. Always perform the safety maintenance procedures as recommended in this manual. Perform maintenance and repairs promptly. See the INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Service Manual or an authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer.

• Before each ride, perform the Pre-Ride Inspections. See page 39.

Brakes

Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)

The anti-lock brake system automatically reduces or increases brake pressure as needed to provide optimum braking control, reducing the chance of wheel lock-up during hard braking events or when braking on rough, uneven, slippery or loose surfaces. See page 10.

1. The anti-lock brake system cannot be turned off.

2. The ABS indicator always illuminates when vehicle power is turned on. It remains illuminated until the anti lock system activates, which occurs when vehicle speed exceeds 6 MPH (10 km/h).

3. When the lamp is illuminated, the anti-lock brakes will not activate, but the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally.

4. When the anti-lock brakes engage during a braking event, the rider will feel pulsing at the brake levers.

Continue to apply steady pressure to the brakes for the best stopping performance.

5. If the ABS light does not come on when the key is turned to the ON or PARK position, see your authorized INDIAN MOTORCYLE dealer for service.

• If the lamp continues to illuminate after vehicle speed exceeds 6 MPH (10 km/h), the ABS system is not functioning. See your INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer promptly for service.

• Operating with non-recommended tires or improper tire pressure may reduce the effectiveness of the anti-lock brake system. Always use the recommended size and type of tires specified for your vehicle. Always maintain the recommended tire pressure. • The anti-lock brake system will not prevent wheel lockup, loss of traction or loss of control under all conditions. Always adhere to all safe motorcycle-riding practices as recommended.

• It is not unusual to leave tire marks on the road surface during a hard braking event.

• The anti-lock brake system does not compensate for or reduce the risks associated with: - excessive speed - reduced traction on rough, uneven or loose surfaces - poor judgment - improper operation 37

Pre-Ride Inspections

Engine Oil Level

With the semi-dry sump lubrication system, the engine oil level on the dipstick will fluctuate, depending on the motorcycle’s position and engine speed when the engine is turned off. To ensure a proper reading of the engine oil level, follow all inspection procedures closely.

WARNING! Operating with insufficient, deteriorated or

contaminated engine oil will cause accelerated wear and may result in engine or transmission seizure, which could result in loss of control and serious injury or death. Check the oil level frequently. We recommended checking the oil each time you refuel.

The engine must be at normal operating temperature when checking the oil level. NOTICE: Oil level will NOT be accurate if checked on a cold engine.

DO NOT ADD oil to bring level to the FULL mark on a cold engine, as this can result in overfilling.

The oil fill cap/dipstick is located on the left side of the motorcycle. A special tool is provided in the tool kit to assist with dipstick removal. Always use the recommended oil. See page 115. Oil Fill Cap/Dipstick FULL ADD 42

Engine Oil Level

1. Start the engine and allow it to run until it reaches normal operating temperature.

2. Stop the engine and wait one minute before checking the oil level. Tip: If the oil level is not checked within 3 minutes, repeat steps 1-2. 3. Position the motorcycle on level ground in the fully upright and centered position.

4. Remove the dipstick and wipe it clean.

5. Reinstall the dipstick until fully seated.

6. Remove the dipstick and view the oil level.

7. Add the recommended oil as needed to bring the level within the safe operating range (anywhere between the two marks on the dipstick with engine at operating temperature). If the oil level on the dipstick is anywhere in the safe range, do not add oil. Oil should be added only if the proper oil check procedure is followed AND the level is below the safe mark.

Pre-Ride Inspections

8. Do not overfill. Overfilling can result in loss of engine performance and an oil-saturated air filter. Use a suction device to remove excess oil if overfilled.

Tip: The approximate volume between the ADD and FULL marks on

the dipstick is 32 oz. (.94 l).

9. Repeat steps 1-7 to ensure the level is within the safe operating range.

10. Reinstall the dipstick securely.

43

Pre-Ride Inspections

Tires

WARNING! Operating the motorcycle with incorrect tires,

incorrect tire pressure or excessively worn tires could cause loss of

control or accident. Underinflation can cause a tire to overheat and result in a tire failure. Always use the correct size and type of tires

specified by INDIAN MOTORCYCLE for your vehicle. Always maintain proper tire pressure as recommended in the rider’s manual and on safety labels.

Tire Pressure

Improper tire pressure can result in irregular tire wear, tire failure, reduced fuel economy and a poor riding experience. It can also affect handling and stopping ability.

Slow tire pressure loss over time is normal for a functional tire. Although a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) will alert the user to a low pressure condition (if equipped), always inspect tire pressure and condition before each ride.

Check tire pressure before riding, when the tires are cold. This will provide the most accurate reading, as riding warms the tires and increases tire air pressure. Tires remain warm for at least 3 hours after a ride. Do not adjust tire pressure immediately after riding. As tires cool, the pressure will drop and result in underinflation. Always check and adjust tire pressure when tires are cold. Using a good quality pocket-style gauge, adjust tire pressure to the recommended pressure. See page 84.

Tire Condition

Inspect the tire sidewalls, road contact surface and tread base. If inspection reveals cuts, punctures, cracks or other wear or damage, replace the tire before riding. Always use the correct size and type of tires specified by INDIAN MOTORCYCLE for your vehicle.

Tire Tread Depth

Measure the tread depth near the center of the tread on both tires. See page 83. Replace any tire with a tread depth of less than 1/16 inch (1.6 mm).

9. Leave the throttle closed and allow the engine to idle. Idle speed will gradually slow to normal as the engine warms to operating temperature.

Tip: Do not rev the engine or put the transmission in gear

immediately after starting the engine. Allow the engine to idle for about 30 seconds after a warm start or at least one minute after a cold start (longer in cold weather). This will allow oil to reach all areas before the engine is put under load.

NOTICE: Do not run the engine at high RPM with the clutch

disengaged or the transmission in neutral. Maximum safe engine speed is 5400 RPM. Never exceed the maximum safe RPM as this could result in serious engine damage.

NOTICE: The engine is air-cooled and requires unrestricted air flow

to ensure proper operating temperature. Long periods of idling or traveling at very low speeds (such as during a parade) may overheat the engine, resulting in serious engine damage.

Operation

Shifting Gears

WARNING! Forced shifting (with clutch engaged) could cause

damage to the engine, transmission and drive train. Such damage could cause loss of control, which could result in serious injury or death. Always pull the clutch lever fully toward the handlebars to disengage the clutch before shifting gears.

This motorcycle is equipped with a six-speed transmission. Neutral is located between first and second gear.

Operation

Shifting Gears

Press downward on the toe lever to shift to a lower gear. Lift upward on the toe lever to shift to a higher gear. Release the clutch lever after each gear shift.

Shifting to neutral is easiest if the motorcycle is rolling slowly. To shift from first gear to neutral, gently lift the toe lever a half stroke.

Tip: The transmission is in neutral if you can move the motorcycle

forward or rearward freely without disengaging the clutch. If the power switch is ON, the neutral indicator illuminates when the transmission is in neutral.

Shifting Gears While Stationary

To locate neutral when the motorcycle is stationary, use one of the following techniques to load and unload the transmission shift dogs, which allows them to disengage: 1. With the clutch disengaged (lever pulled inward), shift into neutral while rocking the motorcycle forward and rearward.

2. With the transmission in first gear, gently release the clutch until it just begins to engage. Apply upward pressure on the toe lever and quickly pull the clutch inward.

To shift gears when the motorcycle is stationary (engine may

be running or stopped), disengage the clutch and apply slight pressure on the shift lever while rocking the motorcycle forward and rearward.

Shifting Gears While Driving

1. Start the engine. See page 52.

2. With the engine at idle speed, apply the front brakes.

3. Disengage the clutch (pull the clutch lever fully toward the handlebar).

4. Push the toe lever downward until you feel it stop in first gear.

5. Release the brake lever.

6. Simultaneously release the clutch lever while opening the throttle (rolling the throttle control grip rearward) in one smooth motion. As the clutch begins to engage, the motorcycle will move forward.

7. To shift to a higher gear, accelerate smoothly to the recommended shift point. See Recommended Shift Points chart. With a quick motion, simultaneously close the throttle completely and disengage the clutch. Raise the toe shift lever until you feel it stop at the next gear. Simultaneously release the clutch lever and open the throttle in one smooth motion.

Tip: Within the recommended speed ranges (see Recommended

Shift Points chart), you can downshift to slow the motorcycle or to increase power. You may want to downshift when climbing a hill or passing. Downshifting also helps to decrease speed when combined with closing the throttle.

Operation

Braking

Always allow sufficient stopping distance so that brakes can be applied gradually.

Tip: Applying slightly more front brake than rear brake generally

provides the best braking performance.

1. To slow the motorcycle with the brakes, close the throttle and apply the front and rear brakes evenly and gradually.

Tip: When the anti-lock brakes engage during a braking event, the

rider will feel pulsing at the brake levers. Continue to apply steady pressure to the brakes for the best stopping performance.

2. As the motorcycle slows, disengage the clutch, or downshift each time vehicle speed reaches a downshift point.

WARNING! Braking improperly could result in loss of control,

which could result in serious injury or death. Avoid braking abruptly. Always apply the brakes gradually, especially on wet, slippery or other low traction surfaces. Avoid braking in a curve or turn. Bring the motorcycle to the upright position before applying the brakes.

Accelerating

Accelerate by opening the throttle (rolling the throttle control grip rearward). For even acceleration, open the throttle with a smooth, continuous motion. When you reach the recommended speed for upshifting, shift up one gear.

WARNING! Accelerating abruptly could cause your body to shift

rearward suddenly, which could result in loss of control. Accelerating abruptly could also cause loss of control on low traction surfaces. Loss of control could result in serious injury or death. Always accelerate gradually, especially on wet, slippery or other low traction surfaces.

Stopping the Engine

Before stopping the engine, bring the motorcycle to a complete stop. Shift to neutral or disengage the clutch.

WARNING! Stopping the engine with the transmission in gear

while the motorcycle is moving could cause loss of rear wheel traction or engine and transmission damage, which could cause loss of control and serious injury or death. Always stop the engine after the motorcycle is fully stopped and the transmission is in neutral. If the engine stops unexpectedly while the motorcycle is moving, guide the motorcycle to a safe location off the road and away from traffic. Turn the power switch off.

1. When fully stopped, shift into neutral.

2. Move the engine stop/run switch to the STOP position.

3. Turn the power switch off.

Matte finish products are prone to trapping dirt, oils and other contaminants. Always clean this type of finish with warm water and a mild dish-washing detergent. Use a soft sponge to gently rub the surface, then rinse with clean warm water. For stubborn stains such as grease or oil, use a citrus based cleaner. Spray the cleaner onto the area and rub gently with a soft sponge. Allow the cleaner to sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse well with clean warm water. Repeat as needed.

NOTICE: Never use a polishing/buffing wax or any sponge that has

an abrasive surface when cleaning a matte finish. These products will buff the matte surface of the finish and result in a glossy finish. Never clean matte finishes with a pressure washer, as this will further imbed contaminants into the clear coat and may damage labels and decals.

Gloss Clear Coat Finish Care

The Axalta Sports and Equipment Finish System was used to provide the original gloss finish on your motorcycle. This finish system provides superior protection against the elements. To maximize the benefits of this system, use the following guide to care for the gloss finish on your motorcycle.

• During the first 30 days, when the finish is still fresh, clean the motorcycle with a water rinse only.

• Do not wax the motorcycle for the first 60 days. Doing so can cause loss of the gloss. After 60 days, use only waxes designed for new clear coat finishes.

• Do not use pressurized water to wash the motorcycle. When paint is still fresh, pressurized water could damage the finish. If using a pressure washer is unavoidable, keep the spray nozzle at least 24 inches (60 cm) away from the surface of the motorcycle.

• Wash your motorcycle often, especially when exposed to salty, dusty, acidic or alkaline environments.

• Use warm or cool water and a soft cloth for cleaning.

• Use soaps that are non-abrasive and have a neutral pH (non acidic/non alkaline detergents).

• Do not use solvent-based solutions. • Do not use a dry cloth to remove dust.

• Do not use a stiff bristle brush, which can scratch the surface.

• Do not wash with extremely hot water.

• Do not wash the motorcycle while the surface is hot and avoid washing the motorcycle in the hot sun. Minerals in the water may be difficult to remove once dried on the surface of the motorcycle.

• Do not allow spilled gasoline, motor oil or brake fluid to stand on the paint. Remove these substances immediately by rinsing with water. Use a soft cloth to absorb any remaining residue and dab dry.

• To remove bug remnants or road tar, use only products that are specifically designed for this purpose. Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations to prevent potential damage to the finish. Follow with a wash using the methods described in this section.

• Always brush away any ice or snow, do not scrape off.

• Chips or scratches should be repaired promptly to prevent corrosion.

Leather Care

Leather Facts

Leather is a natural product and will exhibit qualities inherent in a natural material. Fading, wrinkles, grain changes, creases and small marks are assurance that this material is not man-made. As the product is used, each leather product will exhibit tarnish from use. Regular care will help keep premium leather products looking their best.

Exposure to Sun

There are many environmental elements that will contribute to the aging of leather products. Regular exposure to the sun, along with heat from the sun and exhaust system or engine components, may rapidly fade the leather. Heat from the sun will dry the leather, potentially causing it to crack. Periodic application of INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing will replace the oils, maintaining the leather’s natural surface. Periodic use of the Tan Leather Restore Kit will help restore and maintain the oil-tanned color and finish to help keep it looking its best.

Exposure to Moisture

If leather is exposed to moisture, wipe down the leather products and allow them to dry naturally at room temperature. Do not attempt to accelerate the drying process by using heat. Heating the leather will remove the natural oils and cause it to dry out and crack. Whenever possible, take steps to protect the leather from exposure to moisture.

NOTICE: The leather used on INDIAN motorcycles is an all-natural

product; exposure to moisture will result in structural changes to the material, causing permanent damage. Regular usage of INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing will help prevent this type of damage.

Exposure to Dirt/Dust

Leather items on motorcycles can get extremely dirty with normal use. It is acceptable to wipe down leather products with a sponge and clean water, especially after a long ride. If extremely dirty, use a small amount of mild soap in the water and follow with a clean water rinse.

104

Cleaning and Storage

Leather Care

Leather Care Dressing

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing is a leather conditioner formulated to restore many of the oils that are lost from leather due to exposure to environmental elements. This conditioner is suitable for all oil-tanned leather on your INDIAN motorcycle, but it should never be used on suede.

This leather care dressing will also restore some of the color lost through natural aging and now includes UV protection. The rate of aging depends on how often the motorcycle is used, how it is stored, and weather conditions. While visible signs of aging are more noticeable on natural leather, lack of care may cause non-warrantable damage to both natural and black leather.

Application

Apply Leather Care Dressing as part of a regular maintenance regime, such as polishing chrome and washing painted surfaces. Apply this treatment at least one time per month. Apply more often if the motorcycle is regularly exposed to the elements or parked in the sun.

1. Wipe down leather with a sponge and clean water.

2. Wipe down leather with a dry towel and allow it dry at room temperature. Do not use heat to accelerate drying time.

3. With a clean cloth, lightly rub the dressing into the leather and wipe off any excess. Be cautious not to allow droplets or globs of the treatment to sit on an area of the leather as that area will darken. For better results, use a straight wiping motion rather than a tight swirling motion. Lighter areas may need more treatment applied to darken them.

4. Allow the treatment to dry before riding (typically one hour).

Tan Leather Restore Kit

This kit helps restore color to a tan leather seat, saddlebags and other leather accessories. The kit allows for an incremental color change, depending on the number of coats applied. As with any natural leather, the appearance, shade and wear of the leather will change, forming its own natural patina over time.

Refer to the instructions included with the kit for proper application techniques. Pay special attention to the following notes regarding product usage: • Estimated working time to perform the tan leather restore application to seat and saddle bags is 2-3 hours with an additional 10-12 hours of drying time. Allowing the dye and sealer to dry for longer periods will help prevent dye transfer to clothing.

• For best results, remove leather parts from the motorcycle. Saddlebag buckles must be removed for even coverage. It is not necessary to remove decorative conchos.

• Start applying the dye in an inconspicuous area, working one panel at a time. Additional coats may be applied to achieve the desired look and to match colors between panels. Allow the first application to dry before applying additional coats.

• Depending on how the leather has aged, it’s possible to get varying colors from panel to panel. Work through the leather piece one panel at a time, working to match it to adjacent leather.

• Wet dye will appear darker than the end result. Do not allow the dye to pool as this will create dark spots.

• A small amount of leather cleaner may be used to remove dye from chrome studs, conchos, buckles and paint.

• Apply up to three coats of sealer. Allow a minimum of five (5) hours of drying time before riding.

• If residual dye transfers to clothing (typically only the first time the bike is ridden after being restored), the dye can be removed by machine washing the clothing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I use shoe polish to restore leather color?

A. Shoe polish should not be used on the leather items on your INDIAN motorcycle. Shoe polish contains a dye that can damage the leather and may leave residue on clothing.

Q. What should I use to treat the black leather that came on my INDIAN motorcycle?

A. INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing is suitable for all oil-tanned leather on your INDIAN motorcycle. Black leather uses a different tanning process and may not require application of the dressing as often.

Q. What should I use on my leather accessories?

A. INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing is suitable for all oil-tanned leather on your INDIAN motorcycle, including accessories.

Q. Where can I purchase a Tan Leather Restore Kit or the INDIAN MOTORCYCLE Leather Care Dressing?

A. Please see your authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer for these products and for all of your motorcycle care needs.

Q. Can I use the leather care dressing after using the tan leather restore kit?

A. Yes. The leather care dressing should be applied at least once per month (more often in extreme conditions) to maintain the desired finish. Apply leather care dressing as part of a regular exterior maintenance plan (e.g. polishing chrome and washing painted surfaces).

Q. How many applications can I get out of one tan leather restore kit?

A. Each kit contains enough product for two applications.

107

Cleaning and Storage

Storage Area Preparation

If you will not operate the motorcycle for more than 60 days, store the motorcycle to prevent damage to the fuel system and the battery and to protect components from corrosion or deterioration. During storage preparation you might use products that are potentially hazardous; such as fuel stabilizer. When using any of these products, follow the instructions and warnings on the product packaging.

Choose a dry, well-ventilated storage location, inside a garage or other structure if possible. The location should have a firm, flat surface and allow enough space for the motorcycle.

WARNING! Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive under

certain conditions. Do not store the motorcycle in any area (in home or garage) where it could be near open flames, pilot lights, sparks or electric motors. Do not smoke in the storage area.

To best preserve tire condition: • The storage area should have a relatively constant and moderate temperature.

• The storage surface should be free of oil and gasoline.

• The motorcycle should not be near a radiator or other heat source, or any type of electric motor.

108

Clean and Protect the Motorcycle

To prepare the motorcycle for storage, begin by cleaning and polishing the motorcycle as outlined beginning on page 100. Polish chromed and other metal surfaces. Apply protectant to exposed rubber, vinyl and plastic parts. Do not

apply rubber protectant to the tire tread surfaces.

Fuel Stabilizer

Add fresh fuel to fill the fuel tank and add fuel stabilizer. Do not overfill.

Ride the motorcycle or start and run the engine for 15 minutes in a well ventilated area to distribute the stabilizer throughout the fuel system.

Tire Inflation

Inflate the tires to normal pressure. See page 84.

Engine Protection

Change the engine oil. See page 65.

Cleaning and Storage

Battery Care

1. Remove the battery. See page 90.

2. Clean the battery terminals first with a wire brush to remove any loose deposits.

3. Wash the posts and the ends of the battery cables with a solution of one part baking soda to 16 parts water. Rinse with clean water and wipe dry.

4. Apply a thin film of dielectric grease to the posts and cable connectors.

5. Clean the outside of the battery with a solution of mild detergent and warm water.

6. Store the battery in a dry area with a temperature of 32° to 90° F (0° to 32° C).

7. While in storage, fully charge the battery once a month. See page 92.

Maintenance During Storage

During extended storage periods, maintain tire pressure and battery voltage at the recommended levels.

109

Cleaning and Storage

Rodents

Mice and other rodents are often the worst enemy of a stored motorcycle. If the motorcycle will be stored in an area where mice are a concern (particularly in rural areas, barns, sheds, etc.) be sure to take extra measures to deter their infestation. This may include placing a screen mesh over any intake or exhaust openings (remember to remove them when you remove the motorcycle from storage).

Park and Cover the Motorcycle

1. Park the motorcycle in its storage location. Block the frame to take some of the weight off the front and rear wheels.

Tip: Starting the motorcycle periodically during storage is NOT

recommended. Water vapor is a by-product of the combustion process, and corrosion may result unless the engine is operated long enough to bring the oil and exhaust system to normal operating temperature.

2. Secure a plastic bag over the (cooled) exhaust outlets to prevent moisture from entering the exhaust system.

3. Cover the motorcycle with a cover made from a durable, breathable material designed for storage. Covering the motorcycle helps protect it from dust and other airborne materials. The cover must be of a breathable material to prevent moisture from building up on the motorcycle which can cause oxidation of metal surfaces.

Removal From Storage

1. Install a fully charged battery.

2. Check the oil level. If the motorcycle was stored in an area subject to wide swings in temperature and humidity (such as outdoors), change the engine oil before starting the engine.

NOTICE: During storage, temperature and humidity changes can

cause condensation to form in the crankcase and mix with engine oil. Running the engine with oil that contains condensation can cause engine damage.

3. Inspect the storage area for signs of fluid leaks. Identify and perform service to any leaking components.

4. Remove any intake or exhaust mesh covers installed for rodent protection.

5. Install new spark plugs if necessary.

6. Perform the pre-ride inspections. See page 39.

7. Perform a road test. See page 96.

8. Wash and polish the motorcycle. Wax, polish or apply protectant to appropriate components.

Since emission related parts may vary from model to model, certain models may not contain all of these parts and certain models may contain functionally equivalent parts. In the State of California only, Emission Control System emergency repairs, as provided for in the California Administrative Code, may be performed by other than an authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer. An emergency situation occurs when an authorized INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer is not reasonably available, a part is not available within 30 days or a repair is not complete within 30 days. Any replacement part can be used in an emergency repair. INDIAN MOTORCYCLE will reimburse the owner for expenses, including diagnosis, not to exceed INDIAN MOTORCYCLE’s suggested retail price for all warranted parts replaced and labor charges based on INDIAN MOTORCYCLE’S recommended time allowance for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly labor rate. The owner may be required to keep receipts and failed parts in order to receive compensation.
