My original 2 year warranty is expiring this coming May. I just read all of the solicitation for the extended plan. I got cams, gutted cat, pvcx, slip on exhaust and aftermarket intake, clutch and more in my bike. I'm handy with pretty much most repairs except maybe cracking open the engine case for something major. For me I'd rather put the $1900 in a high yield savings account or 5 yr CD and use it exclusively for any major repairs than to hand it over to Indian/Polaris and "maybe" receive coverage. The reason I say maybe and this may apply to the OP is that you said you're possibly planning some long trips on your bike, me too, so that automatically places unknown dealers and/or service reps that most likely don't know you, have never talked or even met you let alone your bike. Sure it's an Indian but over that last 2 yrs that I've been hanging around this site Indian warranty claims can sometimes be maybe/maybe on a stock bike (depending on the warranty claim) I'd hate to think what they'd think about my modified ride. And that with just that word alone, modified, the dealer can turn anyone away. Am I taking a risk by not buying an extended warranty/service plan, yep definitely. Is my bike going to cost me over $1900 in future shop repairs, no idea, time will tell, from what I've heard, seen and continue to research so far I'd say not. And in 5 yrs hopefully, God willing I'll have close to $2,000 to put into new performance parts and beer money! Cheers.
