Default 3 or 5 year warranty?

I currently have a 3 year warranty on my 13 Vegas that I bought last week. I have the option to extend it to 5 years for 400.00.

Yay or nay on the extension? I have to decide before the end of December.

If that covers the whole bike it might possibly be worth it for peace of mind. If it is an engine/transmission extension that of course excludes wear items like the clutch, I would definitely pass, but that is me. What it is worth to you is really up to you.

Nay.

$50 or more deductible, have to get warranty provider's approval before repairs are covered, low likelihood that something would go and be covered, and the list of reasons goes on and on.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Nope. Send me the $400 and I can not fix it just as well.

If you do any riding at all, any "defects in parts or workmanship" will most likely show up before your three year warranty expires.

I have done 500 miles since I got the bike last weekend. Pretty sure it would be 3x that if the weather was warmer.

Really it is more about are you going to be comfortable either way. it is only $400 and if it makes you sleep better at night knowing that IF something happens you at least have the warranty, BUT if you are confident that you can handle anything that happens then skip it.

I am not going to tell you to go one way or the other. It is a choice that you have to make based on your gut feelings.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker
