Cool SEP warranty

I have an 08 650 abs and am trying to decide which warranty to get. Either until its paid for or go past that. Have any longterm owners had many problems? I've heard lots of good things about these bikes, but you never know. I only have 4000 miles in one year but im thinking about some long road trips now. So if any one would like to share your opinion, i would appreciate it. Thanks

How much is the SEP warranty?

I had my '02 DL1000 for 3 years and 30K miles and had no problems at all. From what I have read on the forums, these bikes are very reliable and hardly anything ever breaks with normal use.

I just finished three years and 80,000 km (almost 50,000 miles) with my bike. The closest thing to an issue was the speedo drive on my 2006 DL650 needed a shot of grease.

I don't think that my experiences are at all unusual.

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

18K miles on an '05 and the only problem has been a screw fell out of my light switch . . . well, the plastic has cracked at the adjustment point on my mirrors too.

You can buy your SEP anywhere, have your dealer price match if you are going to get the extended warranty. www.oneidasuzuki.com has the following online prices for the SEP:
48 month: 369.
72 month: 549.

First remember that you are buying insurance. With that out of the way i will say that i bought my extended warranty for FAR less than a fuel pump would cost.

I recall reading that some folks, don't blow this statement out of proportion, had problems with fuel pumps. I plan to keep the bike for 5+ years so i look at it as cheap insurance, just in case.

I say, if you can afford it and plan to keep the bike and put 10k plus a year on the thing, why not!

buy only if you can't afford to pay to fix

a) I hate insurance and have a tendency to only buy if required by law or if paying out of pocket would break you.
b) The bike is reliable.
c) Buy the manual and DIY if something does need fixing.

R.I.P. (Retire In Peace, thanks for the great ride.)
