How about replacing your current gauge with a 74k gauge?

Extended warranty

I do not know about Harley but some company extended warranties are just an insurance company and not always associated with the original, in the this case Harley. Is Harley the insurer or is it an independent company. I purchased one on a car once and when troubles occurred it was an independent company. I did not know if Harley did own financing and insuring.

I'm curious, was this more than 1 extension warranty? The bike is an 2002, it had 2 years factory correct? Never heard of an 8 year X. Most are adding 3-5 years.

From what I've read you can buy an extended warranty package that will cover your bike for 7 years. This summer I saw a flyer at Seacoast HD that stated for $2500 they'd warranty a new bike for 10 years and it was transferable to the next new bike if you traded in, but not to a new owner if you sold it out right. I guess that's a good way to keep a customer base. So for $250 a year you get free oil changes and maintenance and free towing and free roadside assistance. Every time the bike breaks it'll cost you a flat $50 no matter what the repairs amount to. Like every thing else insurance related your just rolling the dice. I personally don't trust anyone to wrench on my bike I've seen way to many telephone call loose bolts coming from the dealerships to trust them.

Just to give you a couple examples: A customer at Gulf Coast HD was having a custom paint package installed on his SG. When he went to pick up his bike which he was planning on going to Sturgis on, he took the right turn out of the dealership and his left bag and crash bar ended up on the street.

I was up at Sea Coast and the service tech rode a RG up to the customer pickup spot. I asked him, "Are you going to let the owner ride away on that"? I handed him a pencil tire gauge I always have in my vest and he checked the front tire. It was at 28 psi.

You'll find that most of the mechanics are MTTI graduates and while they are trained they are certainly not experienced.

Just curious,with ALL those "repairs" how many miles are on the bike??

Lux,
I know how you feel. I sure miss having the assurance of a warranty if something major goes wrong. If you can re-up the warranty, go for it (but I was told HD will usually verify milage before renewing a warranty). I made sure to have as much fixed as I could, just before the warranty ran out.
