warranty

Recommended Posts

I picked up a fz with 700 miles on it. Should I do a warranty it is 420 more for an additonal 3 years. Give me your thoughts. With the bike being so new it hasn't really been around long enough to see if it is problematic.

I'm still sitting on this one, but leaning towards no personally. I'd also love some input!

I think u should think how long you plan to keep it if your gonna do any upgrades that would void that warranty

Dealer claims oil was just changed but I will still probably switch over to synthetic. And I test rode it started right up no weird noises and ran smooth. I just feel like I will get the warranty and never use it I am a mechanic to

I did not get the warrantee. I figure that if it has not failed in the first year I am probably okay. It is not a very complex bike so I figure if something breaks I can probably fix it. I suppose I will find out in another four years whether I am a genius or an idiot :).

Owned a lot of yamaha motorcycles, raced em, etc. I've never required the warranty. Keep up with regular maintenance and yamahas (most bikes these days really) will last a long, long time.
 
Buddy of mine had a 05 R1 with 172k miles on it last we spoke. He had to replace the valve springs and clutch due to wear outside of regular maintenance

If I could do it over again, I wouldn't get the warranty. I'm already to the point of wanting to do upgrades that would void the warranty, so I'm not really sure it's worth it.

I bought a brand new FZ07 and got the Y.E.S warranty. I mean it's really not all that much considering my bank gave me a great rate and i put 20% down. I normally opt out for extended warranty for electronics but i figure if I'm going to buy a 6k new bike i might as well get the coverage for that "just in case" and peace of mind.
