First, there are good, solid LTs and some that aren't. My 2002 has been very good to me. I bought it slightly used, as you did your 2005. I have done all my own wrenching, I know the bike well. I did have one small issue covered by the original factory warranty. Just one...
The question is how lucky you feel? And, how well maintained has your '05 been? Did you get service records? Any known problems?
1. I bought an 'InterState Star Sport' extended warranty from Bob's BMW in Maryland in 2005. It expired last month.
2. I only used it to have my rotten, lousy, trunk latch replaced by one of Mike Gore's marvelous kits!
3. The claim was ez.
4. No. Mine cost about the same as yours would. Around $1250. So, I basically pissed away a Grand.
When I look back at ALL the Extended Warranties I've ever bought, I can't really say I got my money's worth out of any of them.
If you DO elect to get the warranty, make SURE it covers, ABS, Seals & Gaskets, and all the other obvious pricey parts. Many don't. Mine did.
