Default 4 valve water cooled Indian

Was in the right place at the wrong time. Over heard someone talking about a 4 valve water cooled Indian engine yet to be release.

Let the screaming begin.

I heard 'someone' say the Indian engine was made in Japan and that Polaris was a Canadian company. Doesn't make it true.

Now that Harley is going water cooled we need another rumor victim might as well Be Indian.











I have a friend in a service department in a dealership that hasn't been built yet that says Indian is going water cooled.

I heard since Harley is going water cooled they are testing turbos on all of the 110 CI engines

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

I put this supercharger on a S&S 107 and gained 13 measly HP.
Blowing V twins is a black art and Hardly could never get it right.

I have to grow old but I don't have to grow UP.thumb up. 2010 Jackpot.

Probably a bunch.
older Vtwins that shared the intake plenum don't have the volume to build enough boost in the plenum to feed both cyls.
Was a fun but expensive experiment.

I think through Victory and Indian, Polaris is holding an engineering lesson on how to build an air cooled motor without the shortcomings of HD. They have no reason to whimper and build a liquid cooled bike.

Whoever's starting these rumours must be dilusioning themselves in thinking Indian is following HD.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Following Harley? They are like the last people on earth to figure it out. BMW just did the same type of hot spot cooling that Harley did and they were able to pull like 20% more HP out of their boxer.

If you read the last comparison of the Harley vs Indian, the Harley actually made more top end power than the Indian and that was just the air-cooled 103. If Indian executed a well designed system that worked as well as Beemers, it would flat smoke the Harley. And that's BEFORE they put better flowing 4 valve heads on it.

The other benefit is heat reduction. If you've had a chance to ride an Indian, then you likely realize that that is an area that could stand to be addressed.

I wonder if he had to add balast to the right side of the bike to keep it upright.
