2016 - 12 Month Warranty??
« on: November 28, 2015, 06:43:13 am »
I stumbled across a dealer advertising a 2016 C14 that states anything over 12 months of warranty is optional. Has anyone ever bought one with less than the 3yr warranty ?

Strange ,representative at the motorcycle expo told me 3 year warranty,just like the 2015!
 I guess if you buy that be will charge for any repairs after 12 months, did you see the post on here you can buy another 3 years of warrenty,equaling six for a little over $300? Wil be my first purchase after bike.

^^ You can do that twice, for a total of 9 years.  My '08 is covered thru 2017.  :great:

Not sure about possible changes for '16.
'08 C14
There is no such thing as too much ammo, unless you are on fire or trying to swim.

Kawasaki web site for '16 model states 36 months as standard warranty.  Perhaps dealer is looking to add to his profit??

Or maybe a typo then. At first I thought it might be a way to get a price increase without upping the list price. I doubt the dealer would try to charge for something that Kawasaki provides as standard.

I had the option to purchase an additional 36 months warranty for $300 and I did and I have an 09 so the extended warranty ran out this summer.  Just prior I turned it into the shop and had them check things out and I also mentioned that the TPMS were giving my low battery warnings so they replaced those (this is the second replacement seems they last about 3 years, maybe the newer ones will last longer).

So for my two cents just knowing that I had 6 years and that they had paid to have the TPMS replaced (both wheels) twice paid for the extended.

bummer that you didn't buy another extension prior to yours running out, you can buy 2 extensions....

Cool and  :welcome:

Got any pics of your new steed?

I haven't seen any new (2016) real life pics yet so you might be the first one to post one, if you can.   :great:

Is the Bun Cooler run for 2016 taking place in Kamiah, Idaho again?  I hope to be able to attend it this year.
