Creating RIDE COMMAND Log Files for Bagger and Touring Models

Log files can be used to report a RIDE COMMAND software error to the Indian Motorcycle support team. When submitting a log file, be sure to also provide your RIDE COMMAND display serial number. Log files cannot be accessed by the support team without a serial number. To create a log file for your Indian Motorcycle Challenger, Chieftain or Roadmaster equipped with RIDE COMMAND, follow the applicable steps below.

Model Year 2020 and Newer 7-Inch Displays
To save a log file on model year 2020 and newer 7-inch displays, follow these steps: 

1. Turn the key to ON, and allow the display to power up fully (approximately 16 seconds).

2. Insert a USB drive with at least 16GB free space into the display’s USB port. Note: the USB must be exFAT formatted.

3. On the display, navigate to SETTINGS > GENERAL > SYSTEM INFORMATION.

4. Write down or take a picture of the serial number displayed on this screen. You can also find the serial number on a sticker on the back of the touchscreen display. Set it aside where it can be referenced easily. You will need to provide this serial number when contacting the support team.

5. Tap and hold the line that says FIRMWARE VERSION. More options, “Engineering Menu” and “Save Log to USB,” will appear after about 3 seconds. Note: “Engineering Menu” requires a code to access. Don’t worry about accessing this. 

6. Select SAVE LOG TO USB. The log will begin uploading to the USB drive, and a progress percentage will display.

7. Once the upload has reached 100 percent and is complete, unplug the USB drive.

8. On your computer, copy the “syslog” file from the USB and save it to your computer. 

9. Call Indian Motorcycle Customer Service at 1-877-204-3697 to start a case and receive the email address to send the log file(s) to.
