yea i know its 6 months away for me.. but i just got my notice for extending the warranty for my bike. just curious if anyone has done this or intending to or passing. i guess i could have done a poll. but basically a year is $118 in 4 payments itself. its not bad if it spreadit out with my bike payment.. which would be like 32 dollars.. but now its a lump in one month.

what do you think.. or plan to do.. or advise?

I don't buy extended warranties for anything. Just my thing I guess. I take care of my stuff and hope and pray they made it to last. LOL

I'm not sure about getting an extended warranty.......usually avoid them......figuring it's all a scam to get money for nothin......first year model bike though.....maybe.....

I guess I'm on the fence about it.......I wonder if there are other options besides dealer extended warranties.....Kind of like squaretrade.com for electronics (never used them either, but have read some decent feedback about them)

It's a first year model, but isn't the motor the same as the V Star 1300? That's what my dealer told me.

some of these extended warranties they'll also add pre-paid maintenance, being the wrench disadvantaged kind of guy I am I opted to take them up on the deal, price was reasonable and my independent guy actually thought it was a good thing to do.

My good mechanic friend shed some light on this factory extended warranty subject the other day while he was doing my 4k service at his independent shop. He told me that there’s nothing wrong with getting the Yamaha Y.E.S. service program if it makes you feel more comfortable. That being said…in his many years of experience with modern Yamaha motorcycles he’s noticed a theme. The rare failures he’s seen occur during or after the one year factory warranty period often times have a factory recall associated with them so you don’t have to pay for the repairs anyhow. Just some food for thought.

One thing you get with the YES that you dont get with the factory warranty is Road Side Assistance and Trip Interruption Insurance.

I'm with you Clar, Purchased 4 years of YES and wondering if I wasted my money, I just hope if I ever need to use it, the dealer doesnt give me static about the mods.
