Good Times Protection Plan

Anyone have any experience with it? What does it cover and does Kawasaki actually deliver on their promise? Should I keep $450 in my pocket or put it towards the plan?

I never purchase extended warranties. Friend of mine works in the business of selling policies to dealers. He says it's the best gig ever. Makes a ton of $$$.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Figured. When my mom bought a new Suzuki, their clause was basically that you either had to do maintenance with them (so more money their way) or you had to have work done at a certified mechanic and keep every single receipt of routine maintenance done, otherwise you void the warranty.

1983 Honda Sabre V45 750 - Sold
1994 Suzuki Intruder 1400 - Traded for below
1983 Honda Goldwing 1100 - Sold
1996 Honda CBR 600 - Sold
1994 Honda Goldwing 1500 - Sold
2014 KLR New Edition - Pending

If you do your own work, keep receipts and records I don't think they can legally deny you warranty.

When I bought a new vehicle oil changes were included for as long as I owned it. The car has never been back. It's just a way they get you back into the dealership so they can charge you for something else which you probably don't need.

Friend of mine had a Toyota Highlander. He took it to the dealership for an oil change. They put on the wrong oil filter. His wife picked it up and by the time she got it home the motor was pooched. They reluctantly covered it.
