Checked with the 3 local dealers and lowest I could haggle is $$2200 for 5 additional yrs with wheel and tires. Havnt had wheel and tire coverage before but with all the pot holes and road damage fig it was a good investment.
BTW 2013 FTLRX with 17k and plan on keeping bike for another 5 yrs.

That's probably about right. Mine was 1400 on a new purchase for 6 years (-2 on the factory) so basically 4 years. They told me it's cheaper to buy at purchase.. I had no desire to buy it going in but the finance lady was hot and I just kept saying uh-huh.

I didn't buy it at purchase on my last bike. Ruined a tire a month later on a trip that cost me what wheel & tire without ext warranty would've at purchase. Finally broke down and did it a year later. 3 years later at trade-in got refunded $1100 which went towards 5 year ext warranty on the new bike. Probably still won't come out on top in the end but it's piece of mind on the road and it's only money after all.

I've got it on mine. Hasn't kicked in because I'm on the tail end of the factory warranty, but considering so far I have had the ECM, twist grip sensor, main wiring harness, stator, and induction module all replaced under warranty, I'm glad I have the ESP.

Keep looking. I purchased my 5 year extended warranty about 2 years ago and went to 5 dealers before I found one that would discount it. The price at the first four dealer's was identical, when I walked into the fifth dealer to talk to them about the extended warranty the price they quoted was the same as the others but then without asking they offered a discount of 15%. They also threw in a free t-shirt and a lighted picture frame which Harley was giving away at the time for purchases over $75. The Harley extended warranty can be purchased anywhere and used everywhere and already has come in handy for me a few times.

One tip, make sure you buy while you still have at least one month original factory warranty left because there's about a three week processing time before your extended warranty takes effect that way you're coverage will be seamless.

I sure hope I dont have those issues with my new FLTRUSE, I didn't purchase extended coverage, factory coverage is 2 yrs and HD threw in another year for free. My 2002 FLHTCUI has been flawless regarding issues, I expect for the same with the new double the cost bike. Sure hope I'm not let down......

You can actually extend your warranty out twice, 1st time is after the factory 2 yr expires and again after the extended warranty is expiring for it's first time. So you can have a total of 12yrs of coverage on a bike. I extended mine for 4 more additional years for $1600, went to a dealer and told them I wanted it they said no dealer discounts and I said that if they didn't I'll find a dealer who will. They dropped the price for me right then and there and I also knew what the invoice price on the extended warranty costs. So once I told them the price they payed for it they were more than willing to cut a good chunk of profit off it. I also used it the first few days it kicked, my ignition busted on my bike and they covered it no problems. So that saved me about 200 bucks right off the bat.

You can not buy a extended warrenty outside of your home area anymore. HD did away with that after dealers complained. I think it's 200 mi from home but the online discount dealer we all know and love for parts gave me this info when I wanted to know the discount on warranty. I don't think that $2200 is that bad and it won't make me go without so I will drop it.

Wow! That is a whole lot of reliability, quality issues for a relatively new bike.

Honestly, I think the wiring harness was the issue from the start. I lost throttle control last summer while on the road, and the dealer that worked on it was trying to get it fixed quickly to get me back on the road. Their troubleshooting led them to ECM and twist grip sensor. Started having the problem again a couple weeks ago, had it brought to the local dealer, and the service mgr said the only 2 items left that could cause the issue would be a short in the main harness or an issue with the induction module, so he ordered both.

The old harness was apparently routed wrong from the factory and there were several wires that were completely bare. They replaced the induction module since they already had it and there are issues with them from time to time. I have no idea why they replaced the stator, unless he was just changing everything that could possibly be an issue since it's under warranty.

I thought HARD about trading on a 15, but decided it made more financial sense to let the MOCO foot the bill for the repairs, and keep riding it until I can comfortably afford a CVO Ultra.

Was a total savings of about $375, it was 1600 total including tax. Not a huge discount but enough where it was worth it to me.

actually, you can extend it out further than that. jim palmer at kutter explained to me how you could concievably get 16 years of coverage on your bike. the big caveats are 12 years, and 75,000 miles. either one of those will put you outside the window to extend again.

Just curious as to how/why HD through in an extra year of coverage above the standard 2 year factory warranty?

because I told them that the CVO was a nice bike but I was very concerned about all the bells and whistles giving me trouble down the road. power locks, heated grips, heated seats, throttle by wire, twist sensor, syncd brakes, fancy infotainment system that by the way doesn't sound as good as the stock harley cassette deck with my ipod plugged in on my flhtcui...... not used to having all those things and more, they wanted the sale and added another year to close the deal....

damn, i wish i had that. now, is that tires whenever you feel the need (ie. cupped, etc) or do they have to worn down to a certain percentage?

Never heard about only being able to extend the warranty twice. Seems a reasonable deal i paid $1200 for a two year extension.
