Consumers should contact their authorised Indian Motorcycle dealer to schedule an appointment to have the repair performed, free of charge.

To ensure there is no risk of unintended vehicle movement, it is recommended to follow the correct startup procedure:

2. Move the engine stop/run switch to the RUN position.
3. Shift the transmission to neutral.
4. Apply the front brakes.
5. Disengage the clutch (pull the clutch lever fully toward the handlebar).
6. Start the engine.
