I note very little Q&A on many involved technical problems - custom builds - assembly and repair procedures on this Forum. There seems to be a bit more over on IMC, but still not too much in-depth. My questions and thoughts: 1.) Are there other sites that I don't know about where the real technical people do their thing? I am thinking along the lines of where the dealership techs share info and where the independents could share their ideas, solutions, and projects. Engine builds and modifications, major rebuilds, custom modifications, custom paint... the real nitty gritty of the newer Indian product lines. 2.) Is there any interest for such things to be posted/shared here? 3.) Am I correct in assuming that most of this technical know-how is still guarded and secret by contractual obligation? Is it simply a matter of fewness in number of independent qualified techs and a protective veil around Polaris proprietary information? I say some of this simply because they do their best to enforce proprietary control over their tooling and software even though they (Polaris) do not own and manufacture said tooling and resources... they rely on third parties - Bosch and DSA for instance. They require their dealerships to invest fairly heavily in this resource, including the technical training... 4.) In my opinion, these bikes have been in the field long enough and in sufficient quantity now that the free-market should begin exerting some influence on service and technical support for the product line. Is a public forum a safe or even an appropriate place to dig very deeply into these topics? I really have an interest in developing independent resources... not so much in stirring up trouble or confusion though. Much more to discuss when I find the appropriate place and the interest to make it useful to others.
