Not long after I purchased my 2017 Scout it became difficult to start. First check was the battery. I found my Scout was fitted with a no brand battery. The only printing on it was 'Made in China.' in red. The manual stated that my bike was supposed to be fitted with a Yuasa battery. I contacted Melbourne Indian where I purchased the bike. They could offer no reason for this and I replaced the battery with the top of the range Yuasa at my expense. So, check what brand battery is in your bike.
