We spent the entire day installing 12″ aftermarket handlebars on a 2020 Indian Challenger. The stock handlebars on these bikes are not comfortable for many riders and many just don't like the look of them. In this episode, we break down what you need to know if you're considering this handlebar install project on your Indian motorcycle.
We wanted to film the entire install and make another awesome tutorial video for the biker community to save money and not have to take their Indian motorcycle to a dealership to do this. Our Indian Handlebar Install Video will eventually release, so keep checking back. If you have a Harley, then check out one of our awesome Harley Handlebar Install Tutorial Videos!

It is worth noting that Indian seems to leave enough wires, brake line, and throttle cable to install up to 14″ aftermarket bars without having to extend those. If you go any taller than 14″ then you'll need to extend those for sure. When released, our video will even show you that process.
As we dug deeper into the Indian, we liked some of the engineering things they do but also like some things Harley does better. We learned so many things during this project that we share with you in this episode. Your Indian motorcycle may throw some diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) when doing this project and that's normal. We'll show you how to clear those codes within the Indian Ride Command infotainment system.
Our video will be very detailed and you'll be able to do this project right in your own shop or garage with standard tools.
