Gary, trust me, I do understand where you're coming from. With just a few exceptions I bought my bikes from dealerships, and like you I value my local motorcycle businesses. When I bought the C14, which was about a month ago, I chose to get an extended GTTP warranty. I got a three years deal for a little bit over eight hundred dollars. I am ok with it since I know that Ultimate Cycle is breaking the rules set by Kawasaki Co., plus I've been having this great relationship with the people at the dealership who wouldn't hesitate for a second to bend backwards, if necessary, in order to accommodate me. They already have! I can't put a price on that. They more than make up for the difference in price. I believe I did the right thing.
Please step back and listen for a second, I know you don't know me from Batman, but I have to say you know very little about the bike, and the Kawasaki support network...I do.I Posted / Started this thread
, and followed it up from the beginning. Please do not tell people Pete is doing something "not legit" from Virginia, all over the U.S.A. (exception of Fla.)You are completely out of line, and bordering on laying down a Libel suite for yourself there with those words.
Any bonifide dealer of Kawasaki product, as a representative of Kawasaki Corporation, can sell the GTPP.
Pete, and Ultimate Cycle, his business, are High ranking Black belt dealer folks. As far as your opinions, you are welcome to "express" them, and you are also welcome to spend $800 any way you please.....(insert PT Barnam quote..) you actually go "served" by the trusted dealer you got this from....you paid $200 more than KAWASAKI wants for the GTPP (I assume you didn't get the paperwork from Kaw, extending THIER price....)
Now, with regard to purchasing an extension for a second or third party sale of the bike, if the original 36 month factory warrantee HAS NOT expired
, there is no reason you would have to take the bike in for an inspection. We have numerous people here that have attached the GTPP, purchased from Pete, to a bike they bought used, within the first 36 months.
As for purchasing a GTPP after the 36 month original paper expires
, this is the only time "inspection" may
come into play, and specifically for the benefit dealerships that may have taken a bike in on a trade, and it may have sat and expired. You cannot go in with an expired original warrantee, and get an extension, inspection or not...ain't a happenin', sorry.As of right now, I know of no documented way, that a second 36 month extension can be gotten
, and am awaiting response from my inside connections at Kawasaki, and also from Pete.
