Extended Warranty

Does anyone know of a company in the Northeast that offers extended warranty. My warranty expires in June on my 2006 K1200GT and MAX BMW told me that I can't get it on a 2006 just 2007 and newer. They want me to trade for a new one. I like my 06 and it's paid for with only 16K.

I was in the same position as you in November 2008. I was able to get a quote of $1400.00 for 3 year from Wagner Motorsports in Worcester, MA for my 2006 K1200GT with 19k. Then I went to Max in NH, where I bought my 06, and mentioned the possibility of buying new or an extended warranty. That is when I decided it was worth buying new. I got 11k for my 06 and bought the new 08 for 16.5k. It basically cost me $5,100 for a new bike, new 3yr warranty and hopefully all prior issues fixed. Don't forget I was prepared to pay at least $1400.00 for the warranty so basically for an extra $3700 I got a new bike.

I have 1600miles so far and have been very happy with the bike. None of the issues I had with the 06 have come up on the 08. The seat is much better, no servo brake system, and everything feels a lot tighter.

You may also want to look at Second Wind BMW in New Hampshire if Max is not treating you well.

Thanks for the reply. I just found a company online, US Insurance Services, that has a nice policy for $837.00. 3 year full coverage, unlimited mileage and $50 deductable. I just don't want to trade.

I just was discussing this on another board. Here's what I posted there:


I've heard some negative things about several lately...

I have heard pretty good things about These guys (PRCO)

I'm not the one to ask about reliability on these bikes, but they are awesome when they run!

I highly recommend buying the the "exclusionary" coverage extended warranty. (Top of the line version) They tend to be a lot less "nickel and dime" when you bought that one.

If at first you do not succeed, parachuting is not for you.

From reading your other post it's a good thing you have extended warranty. I think PRCO is only on the west coast. Thanks for info tho.

Western Service Contract

I purchased an extended warranty through Western Service Contract for my 2005 K1200S. After that bike was totaled in an accident with a deer they allowed me to transfer it to a new 2006 K1200S at no additional cost. I have had the transmission and final drive replaced with no hassles. That investment paid for itself. Best $995.00 I have ever spent. In fact I would not recommend a new BMW without a third party warranty if you are planning on keeping it over the three year 36K original warranty.

Cheers!
