SPRING RIDING CHECKLIST
Follow this five step guide to make sure you and your Indian Motorcycle® are ready to ride


1. Service Your Ride
Make sure your bike is ready to roll. Your Indian Motorcycle® dealer’s service technicians can provide full service, or you can do it yourself. The key is to always use genuine Indian Motorcycle replacement parts and maintenance products.

Your Rider’s Manual includes service intervals for routine maintenance, and a pre-ride inspection checklist.

  • Oil Change: Always a good idea before a new riding season. 
  • Belt and Tires: Inspect their condition, replace if necessary, and inflate tires as needed
  • Key Fob Battery: If your bike uses a key fob, a fresh battery provides peace of mind
  • Battery: Make sure it’s properly charged if your bike has been in storage
  • Clean It Up: Look good and feel good about your bike

2. Equip Your Bike With Accessories

If you aren’t riding year-round where you live, the off-season is the ideal time to upgrade your bike’s performance. Have your dealer install an exhaust kit, a Performance Air Intake, or a Thunder Stroke® 116 ci Stage 3 Big Bore Kit.


You can install some performance upgrades yourself, but you’ll want your Indian Motorcycle® dealer to perform all installs that require recalibration of the Engine Control Module (ECM).

  • Exhaust Kits: A powerful and throaty exhaust note is sweet music on the road
  • Shocks: Shocks are available to enhance ride and handling or to modify ride height
  • Air Intakes: Like the exhaust kits, performance air intakes let the engine breathe more freely for benefits such as enhanced throttle response
  • Oil Cooler: On bikes where it’s not stock equipment, an Oil Cooler enhances cooling, which is especially welcome in warm climates
