PostSubject: Extended warranty question   Tue May 17, 2016 10:39 am

I just bought a 2014 WR250R with 4400 miles from Shawnee Cycle Sales in Shawnee, KS. Very clean bike. Paid 4500 with couple extra mods, etc. Anyway, I bought the two year ext warranty for an additional $429. In your folks' eyes; is that worth doing? I am newbie to cycle ownership so it won't get abused or ridden hard until I become confident in time if even that. I am 47 years old. Anyway, I can cancel that warranty that I got on Saturday and get all of it back or prorated a few days. Didn't know if that was worth having really. Let me know your thoughts or did I just give money to the dealer, lol? I know a very reliable bike and the history of it was one owner, ridden on street mostly; older gentleman apparently. Thanks.

Welcome to the club, I have never bought any for a bike, or a vehicle, but I did get it for my 5th wheel trailer, and I have used it. If it makes you feel good, thats all that matter`s.

If you cancel the extended warranty do you have any warranty left?

I also had the extended warranty (3 years in total) as he gave it to me for free when I bought it new. Never needed it. You'll find the vast majority of riders never have any problems, but then there are those who do have problems of course. Just a couple days ago there was the thread about the bearing going bad, the warranty thankfully covered it (several thousand dollars eeek ).

To be honest I would be less concerned if it had more miles on it. If it's a factory fault like a broken bearing, it most likely won't suddenly break after 15000km, but may very well break in the first 8000 km. Of course there are exceptions but I would say that holds true a lot of times. The first 10k km are the most crucial and likely where if a component is defect/inferior quality it should fail.


Also ask him what work/mods you can do to the bike without voiding the warranty. I think technically you are not allowed to do any engine related mods, so that would rule out a programmer or the likes (what about the exhaust?). From what I read in the past here it seems like the US dealers are a bit more lenient regarding this stuff. Mine insisted I come in to do oil changes as well to be on the safe side the warranty would cover me for sure.

I think the moral of the story is to go with your gut feeling Peace YAM
