    I do seem to recall them having more than a few issues with the S&S motors.

    I thought the Gilroy trans was the issue?

    Trans isn’t that big a deal. You can just replace it and be in your way. To be honest, I wasn’t that interested in them at the time once I saw they were using someone else’s Harley clone engine. When Polaris came along with on an honest to God all new motorcycle is when the revived Indian name grabbed my attention.

    Several recalls and 10 times the complaints EVO is far more reliable .. Even if it didn't have that Springer which to me truly makes it worth any shortcomings you might find which I doubt will be very many ..

    I thought it was the flywheel woodruff key or something that needed replacing? (not that I'm against Trans....at all)

    That escalated quickly. Surely you mean Smoky and the Bandit "trans", right? Cuz what else could you mean?

    Just my 2 cents... In the future you are going to be much happier with the evo then the Gilroy...
    The evo was the best engine HD produced...
    To make that cute little thing a bober is going to be fun, exciting and some thing you may not pull all your hair out doing.

    The Gilroy well they were pretty... not much else.
