I couldn't find anything on this.
My dealer sent me a letter wanting me to purchase an extended warranty on my stock Limited, what do you all think? I've had zero problems with my bike, she's perfect...…….
Thanks all!

Im normally not a fan, BUT in the case of my RM, I bought the addition 5 years from Indian direct. $1900.
Ive had very few issues under the original 2 years but these things are very expensive when things go wrong.

Probably depends on the price, how many miles you put on it, etc. Also the terms of the warranty. Lots of factors to consider.

I believe that the distinction between "warranty" and "service contract" is essential to the discussion. The coverages are definitely not the same thing. Insurance companies do not lose on their bets, it is like dealing with the casino in that regard. That said, it is possible to spread your risk over many owners and then you are betting against the quality of your machine. I also think the 7-year extended (in actuality 5 extended years) has been offered by Polaris for about $1400.

I think it depends on model?

Thanks guys. I had a Victory that ended up having issues, was sure glad I had the extended warranty. I could really use the $1400 for some mods, but not if she has problems. I've put 10K on her so far without trouble...……..
