Extended Warranty
« on: November 09, 2016, 11:25:24 AM »
While we still have a way to go before the first XR's run out of warranty if your not one of the 'Alpha Buyers' and intended keeping your XR for a time do you trust it??

 The reason for asking my renewal has just dropped through the door for my K1200r Sport at close on £350 and that's the cheap option and ironically even paying that each year I am still currently breaking even with 3 clutches and an ABS unit plus fitting Sir  :164:

this is the first bike I've had with all the bells and whistles ,I'm a bit apprehensive to the longevity of some of the electronic gizmos . if i decide to keep ill buy the extended warranty for piece of mind

If you ever get to read the small print they'll only cover ESA up to 30,000.

I have done 12k on mine now and when it comes out of hibernation next spring it will be nearly 2 years old and out of warranty.
I have been putting some thought into the warranty etc as the "bells and whistles" will be expensive if they break but as said the Shocks etc are only covered to 30 k and the extended warranty is just a insurance based policy rather than a direct BMW" type thing that ties you to BMW servicing.

I toyed with the idea of defecting to the Orange side or the red side last week but have changed my mind as the XR is as perfect a bike for me that i can find

so back to the warranty options

I doubt i will fork out the £350 min that it will be as the Engines seem to be pretty robust and tried and tested in the r and RR so a specialist indy i think is the route i will take once the warranty expires
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !

Re the extended warranty while technically it's an insurance policy its run via BMW only there's no third party to deal with just rock up at the dealer,they fix it and you ride away there isn't even any paper filling its a good policy and works well I just resent needing it.

I would definitely take out the extended warranty, without a doubt. Right up until 30k miles! :008:

With he expensive 18k service and the cost of the extended warranty+ new tyres I may just buy a new XR. I have been happy with the bike. :305: :305:

Wonder what they would offer as a trade in?

I have a red one - definitely the fastest and the best colour
