im in the same boat. in Canada I can get 2 more years for an extra 575$ plus tax I think. I've never been a warrantee guy but it might be worth it with all the untested stuff like electronics and new engines etc. I'm leaning towards doing it...plan on leaving mine stock and doing street and track miles...

I can get the 4 year factory extended warranty for $700. did you all do it? Why or why not?

I've never bought one but with a first year bike and all the new things, I'm considering.
NO!
never take the extended warranty. Its never like the factory warranty, that cover everything. Its a waste of money! :butt

Ill check him out. I opted not to get it. There is simply no way i'll have this bike for 4 years. Ive had 1 bike for two years. The others didnt last a year (7). So for me... I wasnt going to get the money back out in resale.

I'm buying it... she's a keeper and I just feel better spending less than $100 a year for the extended warranty. :fact

If I keep her for the full 5 years then I am only paying 17.3 cents a day for the extra coverage. Seems worth it to me when you break it down like that.

And another fact... the extended warranty is transferable if you sell the bike. :fact

Contact Millers Yamaha... Ernie can get you the best price. Almost 1/2 of the price the OP is talking about. :fact

This.

Talk to Ernie or Alicia, either one of them will make sure you're taken care of.

I normally pass on extended warranties and even though Yamaha has been pretty reliable with their R1 new model introductions, I got the YES warranty this time around. Millers gave a deal too hard to pass up.

Does anybody know another dealer (other than Millers Yamaha) that sell the official Y.E.S. with good discounts?
Not blaming Millers here, we just couldn't solve a bureaucratic issue together and after few calls they gave up.

anyone else?

Thank you in advance

What was the issue? Inquiring minds would like to know?
...when I went to buy the Y.E.S. I found out my bike has a mechanical only warranty in her first year (not mentioned by the dealer that sold her brand new to me...but that's a different story).

I've to recognize Ernie Millers here in the forum.
He just went above and beyond a common sales man and dug out that, while the bike is eligible for the YES extended as I was told by Yamaha, I've to be present at the dealer with the bike to purchase it (not happening across states :) ).

In the end I think I'm giving up and I'd trust the Yamaha quality without warranty... lesson learned is that the dealer that sold the bike has not been honest to say the minimum :436:

Try D&H Cycles in Cullman, AL, they are even cheaper than Miller's.

Me too, I had it on my '99 R1 and had the transmission worked on 3 times and a total engine rebuild at 100,000 miles due to a scored piston and broken connecting rod. The had to be one of the best investments I've ever made, I never had to use it on my '02 R1 or my'03 FJR and even if I never use it on my '16 I am plenty well ahead.
