I know I can ask the dealer but wanted to know if anyone here has purchased the extended warranty and how much it should cost. The bike is brand new and has the factory 2 year warranty and I did recently see someone mention something about a 7 year warranty?!? Does the price and term vary or is it set from MV? Thanks!

2yrs is the factory standard warranty from MV, I'd imagine any extended warranty service would be at the discretion of the dealer and most likely cover the period following the 2yr manufacturer warranty (minus those 2yrs off the extended period). Personally, I wasn't offered one that I can recall, which makes me believe my Harley oriented dealer didn't have much long-term faith, or experience, in the product.

IMHO, extended warranties are both too long and too short. Things break early and are covered by the manufacturer or just after the time frames of the extended warranty. Dealers wouldn't offer them if they didn't make them money. :baddeal:

Watch for stipulation against any modifications or upgrades you plan on doing to your bike. If they can avoid covering something under warranty or blaming it on you, they will (seen it done too many times). Heck, Mitsubishi were cancelling Lancer Evo warranties if there was any notion you were racing it in any manner.

Anyone wanting to stand up for the altruism of Dealers, and/or the customer only benefit of extended warranties, feel free to strike me down :lightning

On the other hand, I've seen them work out tremendously well for a very few and some of them had to fight pretty hard for that to happen.

My 2005 F4 had an extended 4 year warranty (6years total) and during the last few months of the extended warranty period my engine started burning oil out of the exhaust and needed a complete engine rebuilt. Over $3500 if I remember correctly. All was covered by the extended warranty. All but the cost of oil and oil filter, lol.

Highly recommend extended warranties if at all possible to purchase during the purchase of the bike.

Thanks guys. I s/w one of the dealers I work with and he said I can get an additional 4 years for around $1,000. He also said I can take my time making this decision. Said it can be added anytime during my factory warranty period!
