Extended warranty

Has anyone purchased an extended warranty from discountkawasakiwarranties.com?
$339 for a Vulcan 750 for 48 months, sounds too good to be true, but it looks to be a genuine Kawasaki Good Times Protection Plan.
Thanks

Unhappy Extended warranty

If that is the Warranty offered by the dealership in PA, they appear to have an excellent feed back reputation on EBAY. I'm planning on getting the 4 year extended Warranty for Lena.

When I bought Lena to my amazement the dealership said that the best deal on an extended Warranty was on EBAY, and I retorted "what", but with further research, it looks like it might be a good deal since ALL Kaw dealers are suppose to honor the Warranty.

Lena has several problems and she is still under the original Warranty, and I'm most likely having to take the stealership that looked at her to Small Claims court to get any work done. The stealership (that I didn't buy her from) says the coffee grinder sound(clutch slipping) is very minor and doesn't need to be worked on, I say it's a Safety Hazard. Also having problems shifting down,
blue smoke out of pipes, and most likely not enough grease on the splines.

When I took her in for the Warranty work they kept her for 10 days and refused to do a single thing. Wish me luck in Court if it comes to that!

In the market for a Motorcycle trailer, so that I can take Lena across town to a honorable dealership in the future.

Extended warranties.... .... I always choose wrong on them.
When I should have gotten one, I didn't. When I did get one, I never needed it.

How much riding do you do, or plan on doing, in the next 4 years?
If you do a good bit of riding, it would be a good buy. The most common big money repairs (stator or splines) would easily go over that amount ($339) if encountered.


Norsseman, here's wishin' ya luck if ya have to take it to court!
