Warranty almost up - getting nervous...
"Should I stay or should I go, now..." goes the line from the old song.
Coming up on two years of owning my first Harley. It's a nice bike with a great ride that fits my style of riding these days (comfortable cruising). But my warranty is almost up and it's track record has not been the greatest.
Front tire had rot - replaced under warranty. Front rotors warped - replaced under warranty. Just started having a problem with flashing indicator lights and they replaced the voltage regulator. Now they are tearing into the primary but the tech 'heard something'.
So if they find something that too will get fixed under warranty. But now I'm worried. Warranty is running out and I've had fair amount of things go wrong on what is basically a new bike. I baby the crap out of this bike. I don't pound on the engine. The bike has 11k on it, btw.
So now it comes down to gambling that most of the 'known' bad things have been replaced and other than regular maintenance it will be fine for a longer time, or get the extended warranty just in case, or sell it off while the value is still high and everything is in perfect working order and go with my second choice.
Anyone else out there wrestled with this dilemma? Which way did you go?
I'm not bashing, and don't want a flame war. Just honest opinions about others who have had these types of issues occur. For those that did and elected to stay with your HD, how were the next several years, several thousand miles?
