I agree. Pinnacle has been my choice. I bought a policy on a '96 RT and saved about $3K on a tranny (about 3K past factory warranty expiration).meese said:If you decide to get an extended warranty, stick with either Pinnacle or Western Services.
My dealer sold me a pinnacle plan, and it paid for the replacement of the ABS unit on 2001. Later it paid for the leaking fork seals to be replaced. It would have paid for my leaky rear main seal and slipping clutch if I had not totaled it first. It more than paid for itself. I got some other plan from my dealer when I bought my 04. There are several expensive parts on this bike, and the extended warranty is well worth it in my opinion. Ask your service manager which one he likes, as he will have to deal with them.Tandemfusion said:My '05 factory warranty will end in January, so it's time to think about an extended warranty. It's my understanding that there are several different companies offering them.
Good Point Jim,motoguzzi said:Think of extended warranties as health insurance for your vehicle. Not everything is covered and there are many exclusions that may apply included but not limited to proof of maintenance. With all the computer systems on vehicles today including motorcycles and especially the LT the "High Tech" option is something to seriously consider. Another coverage that is very important is "seals and gaskets" coverage. This can affect subsequent damages where a failure is a result of another failed part. For example if leaking valve stem seals causing a problem with the pistons rings due to oil consumption. Without seals and gaskets coverage the claim most likely will be denied. Some companies do not cover these items or offer these coverages on used vehicle contracts.

What year is your bike?rglassma said:It hasn't been for me... I have to bring mine in again and have the output shaft seal replaced .. That will bring it to 3 times that I would have had to pay big bucks for service within the last year...
Do you call that gambling?
