Default Extended warranty

I bought my Stryker from a dealer that is too far from my house vs a much closer one, just because of the price difference. I will not be doing the regular maintenance at the one I bought the bike from

I am planning to buy yamaha factory extended warranty in the next couple of months when the riding season starts again.

From my car experience, I knew that dealers do not what to do warranty work unless you bought the car from the same location.

My question is, if I buy yamaha the extended warranty from the closer dealer, would they be more likely willing to do the warranty work, if needed? What is your experience?

Don't know about the bike issue but I did have a experience with a car I bought. I bought my car at a different dealer than the one that I used for the service. The first time I went in for my service they asked me why I didn't buy it from them and that should be the place I take the car to. My simple reply was that it was $3,000 cheeper and only a half hour away. If they don't want the business that I am offering them then I will go somewhere else. They will get nothing instead of something. All said and done, they did all my service work and warranty work. They where happy to get my business and they always treated me good. Both of us were happy.

If you buy a YES contract than any authorized dealer can and should do the work. IMO when it comes to service repair and getting reimbursed from Yamaha for the work why should they care where you got the bike or warranty. What if you moved and now live closer to this dealer? I bought my bike private party and it had a YES contract which is fully transferable. Which by the way is something to think about if you want to sell private party some day vs taking a hit on a dealer trade - in. Someone looking for used is more incline to favor you over all the other used bikes if there is a warranty.

I don't buy warranty's unless its a vehicle I cannot work on or just known to have problems. Most vehicles now days are pretty good out the gate.
If you are the full sticker price guy, stop reading here.

Remember these rules.

1 educate yourself
2 negotiate the price
3 negotiate your finance interest rate. May not apply to bad credit.
4 if you desire a warranty, negotiate that too. yes it is negotiable.
5. YOU can still back out your contract even after you sign it. Here is the ticket to that~ DO NOT DRIVE THE NEW RIDE OFF THE PROPERTY, this is taking delivery. Take delivery and you are done! good luck.

If you are buying from an individual, test drive for at least 30 minutes. Take your time and look at all the connectors. They may unplug something to keep the dummy light from going off. Or just take to a mechanic.

All shop's should honor a warranty, they just have to file for their money a different way. IF they say something negative, it's just a lazy fat bastardo ~ talk to someone else or go somewhere else. Money is money, I never turn it away. I take the big deals with the little deals. Mention that to the finance guy. He will get you signed up and out the office before you know it.
then play this cd when you drive off!

Counting all the ace-holes in the room, well I'm certainly not alone!

I put my kickstand down with my hand.
