Thanks MOB.

Given his comittment to the community, Ill give Pete first dibs.  :)

Also:
i KNOW this has been discussed ad nauseum in the past, but I can't read over 13 pages of posts to find the answer.  :truce:

What implications to the factory warranty do modifications present??
I have a modded zx14 dual exhaust and currently running steves' decel flash.

My typical understanding is, that if the mod can't be PROVEN to cause the issue, then most shops will honor the warranty.
I would equate this to, if a rear seal fails on the Drive, none of my mods would be directly related to THAT failure, and would likely be covered.

If I grenaded the Engine on overrun, or ingested a valve from overheating or poor mixture (unlikely, I know) that might be a different situation.

I'd ask now (if anyone cares to answer) what are the more commom warranty claims on this bike, that we know of??
I've seen several, such as brakes warping, rear drive seal, and a few others that I would consider to be non-engine related warranty claims.

Thoughts and input appreciated.

Thanks as always guys.

GR,
The Magnussen/Moss act spelled it all out. Any failure under warranty is covered unless that failure can be DIRECTLY proven to be caused by a modification from the original configuration. All the warranty claim stuff I know of is external to the engine with the exception on a few '10 models puking tranny gear teeth and jamming up the works. 
Popular warranty items are front rotors and windshield mechanisms, Tire pressure sensors, a couple final drive leaks also. not really much in the grand scheme of things.

Thanks Matt.
That's all on par with what I remember and expect.
And yet again, a $400 ($133 per year)will easily pay for any one of those known maladies,
should one crop-up in the next few years.
The only thing that I can think of that is wrong with my bike now with just over 15k miles, is the Cam Sensor o-ring is weeping.
Tried to replace it last year, but couldn't get the replacement that MOB sent me to fit in the hole (that's what SHE said).

Knock on wood, no other issues thus far.
Mobil1 20/50 Full syn, and Final Drive dump at every oil change.
What a great bike.
Not sorry I didn't spend 2x the money to buy a BMW.  :nananana:

***Update****
I pulled the trigger on the 3 year ext thru Ultimate. Should have papers from Kawi in a week.
I figure if nothing else, it will pay for all the little things that tend to break long before the motor will!
Thanks to all for the input and advice.

Just purchased an extra 3 years for my bike from the guys in Irving TX.  Seem like really nice guys to me over the phone.  It was a very quick and easy process and they even send an e-mail confirmation for the transaction.  The final price was $370 dollars which is negligible between the two venders offering the extended warranty.  With that being said, your free to make your choice as I am sure both are great people.

Just purchased warranty #3 that will take me to 9 years.   Haven't had a single issue so far, but still a no-brainer for a C-14 with over 50K miles and now covered until 2020.   :beerchug:

Yep, just re-upped mine as well.  It took longer for the guy who answered the phone to track Adrian down than it did to make the purchase.

The quoted rate was different than the $370 above, but if you ask nicely he'll do it for $370.

I received my paperwork after only a few days, so thanks Pete at Ultimate Cycle!  $383.00.  This is my second renewal, and I noticed that it is now called "Kawasaki Protection Plus"  Apologies if this was discussed before, but I see that the program now includes Emergency Road Side service.  I don't recall seeing that offer on the last program?

For those of you in the Md area,
Heyser Cycles in Laurel has agreed to match the pricing for the warranty extensions through Kawi as well. I have been dealing with them for several years now and they have always taken good care of me as a customer. I will be getting my second extension through them. (already had the first on it when I got the bike).

I emailed Ultimate Cycle about the Roadside Emergency Service question, and here is the answer.............

Yes, Roadside is now included ! A plus for sure.

Seems to justify the price jump when the name of the program changed.

For those who purchased from Pete..Did you have to sign, and send the paperwork back ? We got our contract today which was a renew on a transfer from the original owner. It doesnt say anything, but I wanted to make sure we are good to go. I left a message, just wanted to make sure we are good to go.

TIA

I wasn't sure about sending the paperwork back, and note that there was nothing to sign with the old style agreement.  I signed it, scanned it, and emailed it back anyway, but not sure it was necessary.  I'm thinking if it was absolutely necessary, there would be a note to do it.

I received two envelopes.  The one from Kawasaki had the registration card. The fat envelope from Ultimate had the Kawasaki Protection Plus contract with the "initial this" sections and signature part.  HTH.

Early last week contacted Pete inquired about the extended warranty, e mailed the required data, payment made and in couple days rec'd the agreement.  This week rec'd the wallet card from Kawasaki showing the extended warranty is in in force until 2020. 
Very smooth hassle free deal and glad I did it since I plan on keeping the bike for quite a while.  Would mention that you get the road side assistance program with this deal, a plus.

HI Guys - Swampy needs to renew warranty on 2010 C14 in next 60 days. Letter from Kawi says $550. I am in Florida - can I take advantage of this $339 deal?

Thanks

You and Swampy better talk on the phone, and discuss this further before his time runs out... please....

I cannot confirm Pete can write this deal for Florida residents, just saying, as it was an issue in the past... so ....... disscuss it.

What's to talk about?  I bought the extension and got the receipt and new card in the mail.

If there is an issue it's with the Floriduh AG office and Bondie is too busy sucking up to Trump to mess with me. I'm sure MaKaw doesn't really care as it's a Floriduh thing.

I have a 100% beneficial and mostly positive experience with extended warranty claims. I barely made it in time by getting the warranty purchased as the factory warranty ran out. In late June of 2015 my bike was in for a broken windshield motor. The dealer told me the bad news that my warranty was expired and it would be out of pocket expense. I asked about the date of expiration on the warranty and they couldn't really give me a good answer. I knew my warranty started in June of 2012.

That's when I got on the COG and looked up the article for extended warranty and the PHONE NUMBER. I called immediately to extend the warranty. Success! Meanwhile - The parts were ordered by the dealer from Kawa and took a few weeks to arrive. When the parts came in I checked with the dealer regarding my warranty. They were surprised to find out I had somehow slipped in and acquired an extended warranty. They asked me how that happened and I told them I called and bought an extended warranty and they said, WHY DIDN'T YOU LET US SELL YOU.. wait... never mind.

Since then I've never had a claim turned down for any reason. I have 50,000 miles on the clock now on a '12 C14.

Here are the items I remember I've had fixed under the extended warranty:

1. Windshield Motor
2. Front Rotors
3. Tire Pressure Monitors - 4 separate times
4. Oil leak from cam sensor
5. Oil leak from valve cover
6. Fork seals - this got me a whole fork rebuild last month April 2017 - reset the sag and everything

I am super courteous and hold my tongue with the dealer. Even bring a word of encouragement to the understaffed and overworked shop. Techs are hard to keep around here. Good techs are impossible to keep. If you have one good man you are golden. This dealer has one.
A few times I've gotten free tire mounting because I've brought in new tires during the other repairs that required tire removal. This comes as a small benefit for the incredibly slow turn around for getting the bike repaired. Never less than a week. Many times 3-4 weeks. This is the reason I decided to get a second bike so I'm always ready to ride. Many of you are shaking your head and thinking why don't you just do your own wrenching? I do a tiny bit like regular maintenance and farkling. But the warranty stuff and tires? I just like to ride!

Yes, I wish Fred Harmon lived next door instead of the other side of Texas. Yes, I need Steve in Sunny Florida to move into my neighborhood. But since that ain't likely we just need to work it out with the local assets and the available warranty coverage.

I meet COG people and riders who can do seemingly everything to their bikes. I'm jealous. But I just like to RIDE. I emailed SISF about working over my 2005 C10 this fall. I'm thinking about letting him do ALL of his SHOODABEN magic on my classic touring machine. After that it may be time for some work on the ECU on the C14?

See you on the road...

A moderator will be along to fix it. I agree it's somewhat of a pain not to be able to edit your older messages. On the other hand, every time I ask a moderator to edit an older message they are quick to do it. That new price is what I paid for my second and last possible warranty good to July 2020.  That is amazing for the price. I should point out, I never needed it (yet) since the C-14 is bulletproof....and where is the knocking on wood emoji anyway?
