Understand that there is no such thing as an extended warranty unless it is given to you in the future by the factory for some unexpected problem in the vehicle.
These things are extended service contracts. What's the damn difference, he says? Federal warranty law is strict and has great protections for the consumer. Contract law is much weaker for the consumer. Whatever you sign, you must follow exactly, or they other side doesn't have to spend a dime on you. Read ALL the fine print and make up your mind about it before you pay and sign anything.
And, if you really want one of the extended service plans, buy the bike first, then shop the internet for another Suzuki dealership offering a Suzuki plan at a discount price. If the underwriter of a non-Suzuki plan goes tits-up, you have nothing for the money you spent.
I never buy them and never have found the need for one. Keep in mind that the price you pay has money for the salesman, money for the dealership, money for the underwriter, and usually something left over to pay claims.
