Matt
Hi everyone,

I have joined the forum under slightly false pretences, as I haven't yet picked up my '16 Pearl White Chief Classic, though I hope to sometime in the next few weeks.  The deal I got through the Indian dealer in the city comes with $3k of accessories-  I am strongly considering going for the performance upgrade (air filter, cams and pipes with fishtail tips) - any opinions????-- decisions, decisions!!
Can't wait to hit the road!! Thanks for having me
Cheers, Matt

I have just looked up the details on the 116 Big Bore kit, and it specifically states that the kit is not suitable for the MY14-16 111 engines, so it is probably a no- but it won't hurt to ask.

Hey Matt, welcome to our forum.  There is nothing ‘false pretence’ about you signing up here. We welcome anyone who is interested in Indian Motorcycles, not just the owners.

In regards to your $3K accessories of Stage 1, High Flow AC and S2Cams sounds like good options. Only thing I would say is that, fishtail tips do stick out more than 6 shooter tips.  So they can be a little annoying.  Coming out of a steep driveway, they can scrape. Reversing into a roadside parking, they can hit the gutter.  Lastly, 6 shooter tips are heavy and solid chunk of metal. Fishtails are thin metal without much weight.  They do look great so... just my 2 cents worth mate.  

When you pick up, please post up some photos mate.  

PS. Which state are you from?

Thx for the welcome V-twin. I’ll certainly take on board your comments on the fishtail tips, though I think the look of them will still win me over ( I can’t say I wasn’t warned though!!)
I am based in the northern Suburbs of Melbourne.
I will certainly post some photos of my beautiful bike ASAP- try and stop me from showing off!!
Cheers, Matt

😜 Fishtail, not a warning... just so are aware.  In fact, I was going to fit the fishtail on mine but when I had the demo, I kept walking into those sharp tips. I ended up changing my mind.  If you love them, you love them. Get them and enjoy!

Do you ride anything at the moment?  If you have a bike, check this thread out.

Welcome mate! Pearl white looks awesome! There’s been one parked out the back of the Melbourne shop this past week. If white was an option on my Chieftain I’d have chosen it for sure! And LOVE the fishtails. I put them on my Chieftain. Create the look of added length.

The fishtails look great on your bike- from the little I can see, your bike looks fantastic. There is some chance that the bike you saw at the Melbourne shop is the one that soon will be mine!! Cheers, Matt
