What are Stage 3 cams? Are they between Stage 2 cams and the 116 upgrade?

If you look closely at his profile picture and the pictures he posted of the air cleaner you'll notice that's a Gilroy Indian. So yeah....stage 3 cams...

I think you'll find that's just a pic. Cam upgrade was in a Chieftain. Gilroy Chieftain?

Face's signature indicates:

Dark horse, stage 3 cams and 116BB KIT and a stack of minor mostly cosmetic mods

Which kind of suggests that it is not a Gilroy - but, does mention 116 BB kit - must admit though, I have not heard of Stage 3 cams (unless they are loydz)

Stage 3 Cam is part of the 116 Upgrade, iut is named differently as you can have a 116kit with other cams such as lloyds...see this video for complete part discussion

Hmmm,  I thought that before you can go to the BBKit you had to have stage 1 and 2.  That kind of seems a bit wrong if the cams are included.  I am going to have to go back and re-read the requirements.
I guess the stage 1 is required for the exhaust and the air filter and I get that.
Stage 2 however will be redundant if there are stage 3 cams (I would have thought).

All you need is stage 1 pipes and air flow.  I took ownership of my old stage 2 cams post install of BB kit

I was told by Indian Ashfield, if I was going to install the 116 BBK dont worry about the Stage 2 cams as the 116 kit comes with cams and it just an unnecessary expense.

Lol that's what I get for replying before being fully awake. I thought we were talking about charliebates' bike, not face's.

My bad!  I’ll explain away!!
   I believe I had the  stage 2 cams installed, not stage 3. 
 I installed the Vance n Hines exhaust with the ball milled exhaust tips, then installed the (2002 Gilroy Indian) War Bonnet Breather on my 2014 Chieftain. 
 Once these changes are completed the ECM needed to be flashed. 
 Indian had $150 off the upgrade cams and that included a new flash. 
 So I went that route

This thread is a bit dated and thankfully after reading this wasn’t overly surprised at the cost of the 800k service/check over on the RM,  it still made my eyes water though

I was under the impression that the 800k service was free.

We're both too old that we remember when this was the case.  🙂

All my new bikes had the first service free, only paying for oil and filter. In 2008 I bought a new Kawasaki and it was the first time I was ever charged for the service, about $250. The guy said 'they'd tightened up all the bolts so nothing will come loose and I was good to go.' I figured that if the shop that assembled the bike could not do bolts up tight in the first place I was wasting my money with them in future, so did my own servicing on it from there.

I get the dealer to service the Indian as I'm now old and lazy enough to pay somebody else to do it.

When I tried to negotiate some freebies with the local Indian dealer when buying my bike, they said that they couldn't add in a free service as the service department was a different division of the business, same with my suggestion they throw in a jacket, sorry, parts and accessories is a different division ... 🙁

Yes the first safety/service free is long gone, and considering they don’t replace anything.
