    Hi IronButt,........Quick action to me as I had never read or heard of this problem until Thumper brought it up just recently,........I don't recall him saying it was an old problem but if it is, then I stand corrected Buddy,......

    Oh,.....and I am aware of the "speed" at which Indian worked at in the past,........having bought a First Run Scout, commented on a good number of the problems of the first Scouts and even rang and spoke to Indian on the side-stand issue of Scouts falling over,.....I was promised action but nothing came back to me and it took two years for Scouts to have the side-stand issue fixed,........however looking at some recent Scouts I am beginning to wonder if the problem is not drifting back in,......so yeah,.....I am aware of the speed of movement at Indian on occasion.

    Just pulling your chain a bit. I have several friends that have had this issue. I haven’t crossed paths with them lately so I don’t know if their problem has been resolved but not being able to use cruise control would be a big issue for me and these old hands.

    Now that the "fleet" is aging these issues are starting to show up I guess. Fortunately I haven't had this gear position switch issue act up but will get my new part when contacted by Indian.
    I'm with you @IronButt70 not having cruise control would kill me.

    I did enjoy cruise control on the harley but now my cruise control consists of a cramp buster on the Scout and Intruder both,.......works ok and removes the cramp and pain in the wrist,.....I could solve that by buying a Challenger, Huh,.......

    AlPal,


    Go for it dude, then come back here and rub it in, how good it is.

    I would really enjoy that....do they make a red challenger?

    I've had this as an intermittent problem for a while. But it was never acting up when I getting my 5K services, so I never mentioned it. It hasn't been a real big issue, and it goes away all its own for extended periods of time. Glad to know they are admitting the problem and offering a fix. Guess I'll wait until the spring and give RideNow a call.

    Well it may be a recall in the USA but here in the UK it's an advisory check if someone has an issue.......

    Is it not as prominent in UK as the US?
    A corrosion issue mainly.
    Definitely contact Polaris if it's a issue. They will react according.

    They're treating it less seriously here, I don't know of any issues here though. My dealer is fantastic and will almost certainly apply any fix when it comes. Saying that I always double check neutral and pull the clutch in to start it's a habit from many bikes not always showing neutral correctly

    So far my Roadmaster hasn't shown any issues. Maybe mine has been behaving because I had removed and lubed the ball and contacts with silicone grease when I did the Stage 3 kit. But I'll take the new part when it comes out.
    Funny thing is that my Kawasaki Voyager had an issue with the gear position indicator. It DID give the correct gear position, but it would often take a couple of seconds after actually changing gears to see the updated number. They never did put out a recall.
