How many folks added the extended warranty?

I had the warranty switched over to my name, it comes with a 6 month factory warranty. As long as I choose to add the extended warranty I could within the 6 month period.

I saw a advertisement for Kodiak / Grizzly 5 year Extended - $660.00

Thoughts?

Not sure. Their warranty doesn't cover a lot of things so what does it actually cover?

Use of lubricants, oil and fuel oil mixture other than those recommended in the owner's manual
Accidents
Collision or theft damage
Submersion
Fire
Cosmetic damage - scratches, dents, fading, flaking, peeling, etc.
Normal wear and tear or lack of maintenance
Abuse or neglect
THE FOLLOWING PARTS ARE NOT COVERED:
Drive chains
Clutch plates and facings
Drive belts
Brake pads
Tires
Oil, lubes, spark plugs, high tension cables, batteries, filters and fuses
Seat
Frame
Rims
Instruments
Winch components

When I got my unit I got the standard 6 month and then an additional 18 month from the factory as well for s total of 2 year. I went in to finalize the paperwork and my sales guy came in and said Yamaha had just released an additional 18 month warranty at no charge, trying to keep up with Can-Am I guess. The original 6 month Warrenty was originally void if I installed any electronics devices also Winch, heated anything lights,ect. The new warranty does not have that in the disclaimer anymore, only voids if electronics get fried from improper installation of any accessories.

I can see that happening, them trying to leverage warranty to an extent, it looks good on paper and gives them a slight edge up but surely not a defining factor for someone wanting either one.

Yea, I was happy to have the extra warranty but definitely not something to sway me if I was undecided. There's so many holes in every brands warranty, at least it gives you piece of mind if major things go wrong early. Typically you buy a good machine and take care of it will last. My own opinion though

Exactly.

We're indeed a much different crowd, much different in comparison to say some one looking for the cheapest commuter car that doesn't know much and just wants the best bang for their buck so they go for a Hyundai because it has the best warranty term.
