Re: Extended Warranty will not pay for slave cylinder failure??
I had a couple of friends who had no failures under the BMW motorcycle warranty, but had major failures during the extended warranties. Both were in the neighborhood of $6-7 grand in repairs over the duration of the warranty, completely covered except for a $50.00 deductible. Their approximately $1K investment in an extended warranty saved them 5-6K in repair costs. In both cases the companies covered the work promptly and without hassel. The BMW forums are filled with people like my two friends who have benefitted significantly from an extended warranty. These machines have a lot of technology and with it, high repair costs if they fail. On my previous LT (99) I turned down the offer of $900 to buy an extended warranty as was my practice. I had no failures under the BMW warranty, but had the main seal go costing me over $2,500 to repair. Had I purchased the warranty, which would have covered the repairs, I would have been $1,600.00 to the good and then still covered for any potential future repairs. While there are bad companies out there and horror stories of companies not making good on claims, there also are good companies as well.
