No Service warranty on my 06 heritage softail

Hello everyone! Maurice from Miami. My 06 h/ st ,will be one month old to me in three days. I got it from a HD dealership here in Miami, the bike is in a 1 conditions. Its Seems to be. I don't have any warranty. So I am asking how can I keep this bike up? Any tips would be greatly appreciate it.

Buy the service manual and perform the maintenance as scheduled.

Congrats on the bike. I have an '04 that like very much.

Nice scoot. Your best bet is to get a Harley shop manual for your bike you can purchase on ebay if you like, just make sure its a Harley manual. This will give you what needs to be done at certain mileage points on your bike. Its also a great book to show you how to perform maint on the bike as well. Ride safe.

I bought a Clymer, very detailed. Though I have a Dyna, (my 1st Harley), I plan on upgrading to a Heritage, mainly because I wanna bike that can be converted from highway ventures to back road cruisin, how does it handle? Smooth and nimble I hope.

Hey red dragon! I broke down and got the service warranty . I feel better by having it. I had a 08, 883 sportster for 7 months went in one day for something and saw the heritage softail and. That was it. Had it only 2 months. My first long ride was last week from Miami to key largo. The ride was so sweet at 85 MPH. Get it my man.

With regular maintenance you shouldn't have any problems.

You could also ask the dealership where you bought it if you could buy some extended warranty.

I know a guy that bought a used bike with scream eagle stage II engine upgrade and he was able to buy extended warranty.
It wouldn't hurt to ask them.

You can also check on some stiffener kits for the saddlebags. That will keep them from sagging because it looks like they are in really good condition. With the stiffener kits they will always look good even if you get rained on. Just do a search online for stiffener kits.
