Extended warranty with free service, worth it?

1368 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  sawboy
My dealer has a program that is $900 (they might come down a little) that extends the warranty for a total of 3 years. It also includes for 3 years:

-oil changes
-tire mountings
-scheduled maintenance
-basically any service labor
-15% off all parts (including tires and brakes)
-"1st in line" privileges (members of this program are taken in 1st for any service)
-if for some reason I need the bike picked up and returned, they'll do it

I kinda like working on my bike (basics), but this deal sounds better every time I read it. Should I get it? BTW, I only have until Thursday to decide! Thanks:cool:

Service Offer

Dealers get statistics and know that the life expectancy of a sportbike is very short. Whether by theft, collision or something new coming out, they know that you, most likely, will not have the bike for 3 years. So they make these offers knowing that they will not have to fulfill their obligations, except in a few exceptional circumstances. That is why they get such a good commission for selling these warranties.

You are better off extending your warranty at the end of your factory warranty and put that 900 in your bank, instead of theirs, in the meantime.


How many people bought 00 and 01 R1s, thinking they would keep them for years, and now ride GSXR 1000 or 02 R1s? The number is a lot higher than you think, and it is drowing every day.
