Was look at a new Yamaha and it seemed Motorcycle Warranty are mostly a useless myth. Ride 100 miles into USA or canada depending where you live and something blows up your going to stuck in a debate with the Yamaha , honda etc about whom paying for it. and what might be covered. Seem that they can tell you go fly a kite and you ve got no a thing you can do about it. Not saying you may not end up with a break down paid for or anything like that . Just seem that 15% or less of buyers are going to ever use one. :eek1 The dealer I went the warranty is with there 2 locations only because the registered the bikes with Yamaha which started the count down it. 2 years of sitting around mean Yamaha warranty is gone.
