Extended Warranty

Doing a search on extended warranties it looks like three companies keep popping up. Interstate National Dealer Services, Western Service Contract Corporation, and Pinnacle Protection Plan.

Those of you that have one of these plans, have used one of the plans, or have researched the variables in these plans. I sure would appreciate some feedback.
Regards

I've heard good stuff about all three. I've got Western and made sure it covers stuff like ABS, electrics, etc. Obscure stuff that can cost a lot to repair.

I didn't get an extended warranty on the LT simply because I never kept a bike long. I blew thru the 36k miles in way less than two years, ended up keeping the bike for seven years and spent many thousands of dollars while my friends paid $25 bucks because they had extended warranty.

Not this time, dammit!

Grif,
Thanks for the reply. I'm placing an order for an '08 on Monday or Tuesday and I want to make the extended warranty part of the deal. My dealer has ZERO extended warranty options to offer to customers. I gave the salesman the contact info for Western and Interstate. I'll see what he comes up with?? Hard to figure out who some of these companies are and who and what is behind them if you have a claim.

I just added a policy to my wifes MINI Cooper S. The warranty was from Warranty Direct. They are the consumer division of Interstate National Dealers Association and are allowed to sell over the internet. Interstate is the same company that provides auto warranties to AAA. Which, in itself, is not a bad endorsement of Interstate. But, if you go directly to Warranty Direct( Interstate) you can get more extensive coverage than that provided by the AAA ( Interstate) policies. Interstates motorcycle division is Interstate Star Sport(???).
One would think that they would have pretty good coverage. However, on their website I saw no options for adding more coverage to cover things such as ABS modules.

So, it goes on and on. I just want to get the coverage I want for a fair price. I'll let ya know what I end up with.
Regards

Warranty

I have had Western Services on my last three bikes from the time they were new and on 1 that I bought used. The used one had the warranty on it and it only cost $25 to transfer it. I even transferred it to the new owner when I sold it Claims (what few I had) were covered and I just paid the deductible.

My recommendation is go with Western YMMV of course.

grif and Dave,
Could you let me know how much you ended up paying for your warranty and what the term and mileage is? Also, what additional coverages would you recommend adding to the policy. Thanks

OK, I was wrong, I have Interstate Star. Paid $950 for 84 months, unlimited mileage, no deductible and it covers ABS.
It covers the engine, water pump, turbocharger(!!??), tranny, primary drive, drive axle assembly, front and rear suspension, steering, brakes, electrical, gauges, fuel system, seals and gaskets and touring bike (digital dasy components, control cables, factory sound system, fairing hardware, brackets, switches, covers, latches and hinges, saddlebag/travel trunk latches, hinges and mounting hardware)

Doesn't cover consumables like light bulbs, clutch, brake pads, etc.

Sorry about the erroneous info, I had to dig the paperwork out.

Since I am really happy with the two bikes I currently own, I'm relatively sure I will keep them for a long time, so I am thinking of buying the extended warranty coverage too.

However, I would far prefer a factory BMW policy rather than aftermarket. Does BMW have a service contract of their own or are there only aftermarket policies?

MikeM,
From my research I have concluded that there is no extended warranty program through or endorsed by BMW. If you find out I'm wrong, please post.

I bought my extended warranty from a BMW dealer, BMW doesn't offer one.
