I bought the extended warranty on my new '09, so I am under warranty for 5 years unlimited mileage. I ride about 15K to 20K a year....So, in my 4th year with 80K on it the cam chain starts knocking, will I be covered...how about at 90K it starts burning oil, do I get a top-end rebuild? That's my plan!
Yeah, I have a copy of the GTPP and the way it reads to me if anything in the chassis (mainly bearings) or motor wears out in in 5 years I am covered. I really like the unlimited mileage provision, because I put a lot of miles on my bikes. The only way legally I can see them giving me any runaround is due to lack of proper maintenance, so I am being sure to carefully document all the service/maintenance I do and save my receipts. It says it will be honored by any Kawi dealer in the country.
I bet you'll get the runaround unless your motor quits dead. If it's just burning oil, they'll tell you that's normal for that mileage.
To me it is never "normal" to have to add oil all the time because the engine is burning it. With the "unlimited mileage" provision, if it is burning a lot of oil, the motor is worn out and needs to be fixed, regardless of mileage. I don't know...I guess time will tell!
I didn't buy the GTPP when I bought my V back in May. Does anyone know if you can purchase it after the fact? I thought I remembered hearing that I had up to 1 year to buy it (before the factory warranty ran out). But then again, I could very well have heard it wrong.
