I'd be having a reaction to that quote, too. I paid just over a grand for the additional 5 years (no tire coverage). I would have thought that being up north where the riding season is somewhat shortened, the prices would be lower because of that.......but then, I never shopped up north for that sort of thing. The girl's quote seems to me to be very far out of line and an attempt at screwing you over royally.

I know the feeling, my local dealer just did near 7k worth of insurance work and when I got it back it was like riding a paint shaker. They refused to fix it (I live near Springfield, mo). I seriously considered buying a Victory Xcountry and saying the hell with Harley. Thankfully a different dealer, Ozarks Harley, stepped up and is in the process of fixing the situation & restoring my faith in Harley.

I'm to pick up the bike tomorrow & their head mechanic says it's now the smoothest riding Dyna, he's ever rode. I hope so.

the ext. warrenty doesn't cover adjustments. my drive belt was rubbing bad & went thru 3 normal insp's & they didn't find it. but i did & had to pay a hrs labor to get them to adj. the belt on '09 tri-glide.
one good thing they did r&r the ft. head under e/w because the bolt that holds on the steering dampner sheared off.

Ozarks harley....think they own dealers at couple of locations.......anyway they are the ones that helped me out with some small stuff while on the road.... were some good guys!!!

Some piece of mind, but not a lot.
I knew a guy with a bike with low miles on it, and in my opinion got burned by this subsequent damage thing, if I remember... the part that broke was covered, but not the stuff the broken part destroyed??

I still think he got reamed!!

Good descussion though, heard a lot of people say its a waste of money and that if you are going to have a problem that WILL be covered, it will happen within factory two years???

But have heard of people using it also and all was good...in cases I know of it was within two years anyway???

Well I've always been a gambler when it came to extended warranties on vehicles. I relied on maintenance to keep them going and hoped "defects" in the assembly process showed up before the manufacturers warranty was up.

I am a mechanic by trade just not one working on automobiles although I've seen my fair share of engine, transmission and suspension rebuilds.

I did buy BOTH service manuals for my 2012 FLTRX so it's more a matter of tools and patience with me should anything go wrong with my bike. I've got a significant amount of tools and probably know someone should I need something I'm missing and really don't want to buy, esp. in the electronics diagnostic arena.

I also enjoy working on my machines so, it makes more since for me to keep that money towards what I rate as the slim chance I do blow a transmission or window a block.

I know very little at this point about HD products compared to multiple people on this form, I expect that will change at least where my particular bike is concerned.

If I had no ability or inclination to work on the mechanical or electrical end, I'd probably consider at least some form of extended warranty.

I bought the extended warranty with my new '09 Heritage. Have 43k miles on it now. The only issue that has yet to come up was a warped rear brake rotor. Dealership said it wasn't covered under the warranty. I feel the extended warranty is a waste of money. My opinion, heh-heh.
