  1. Recently got my bike back from Bell County Motoworks of Temple, TX (my Indian Dealer).  While riding the bike to Gregory Polaris of Jacksonville, AR this past June, my 2018 Roadmaster (with less than 6K miles at the time) began making a noise.  The service techs at Gregory Polaris believed it had an exhaust leak.  (see video attached) While my painted pieces were swapped out, they gave it an oil change and tightened the exhaust bolts.  The noise went away temporarily.  Before we got to our next stop in Etowah, TN, the noise returned.  It continued to get louder as we road the Dragon, Foothills Parkway, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The noise would also come and go, but when it returned, it was louder than before.  Upon returning to Texas, I took it to my dealer to have them check it thoroughly.  Long story short - it was found that the oil pump was intermittently failing which caused damage and dispersed metal pieces throughout the motor.  I received a new motor and oil pump under warranty.  My dealer also installed my Indian stage 2 cams, air charger, and tune for the cost of parts only.  I am glad to have it back just in time to add some miles to the new motor and get it ready for our Big Bend Trip Oct 1-4, 2020.

      Yes sir, that was the first time my dealer has ever dealt with that issue.  I believe that Polaris will be studying my old motor to see what went wrong and how to better detect the problem.  I must say that the Polaris/Indian Extended Warranty is legit.  No fuss, no trouble.  I still had 2 more payments to make on the plan and Polaris took great care of me.

      Jason: I must say that I like your paint better every time I see it. I really like the custom feather emblem on the right side of the engine. Its a nice touch. The fact that this engine has now been out for over 6 years and this has not been reported to be a big problem for owners makes me interested in hearing what they will find and why they think your oil pump failed.  Its good to know that you had a good experience with Polaris.  Enjoy the Ride.

      First time I ever heard of an oil pump issue.  And it's odd that when they tightened your manifold bolts and the noise went away for a while.  But sounds like you've got everything squared away now.
