Not worth it IMO. I find it hard to even imagine Honda honoring a warranty part more than 2 years down the road, let alone any company.

If you are buying a brand new bike from the dealer you may as well protect the investment with an extended warranty. That's too much to pay not to.

as long as u keep up with the oil changes and dont molest the living **** out of your bike, it will be fine. all hondas are known for their reliable motors.. if it was like a kawi or a gsxr, i would prolly look into getting one..

There are other things that ca fail other than the motor.

I am in the 3rd year of my 5 year total warranty and it had paid for itself by the end of the 2nd year when I lost 3 rectifiers.

I say, if you plan on keeping the bike......get it to protect your investment. The thing is...most people total their bikes before the initail warranty runs up....

I agree.... and for those of us that keep our bikes for awhile and plan on racking up some miles, it's probably not a bad idea to have it. I was going back and forth about buying one back in 2005 before my 1 yr warranty was up, but decided not to. I guess I don't regret not buying one, but it definitely would have come in handy when my bike started jumping out of 3rd gear back in Dec (had to fix it myself... pull motor, spit cases, replace 2nd 3rd and 6th gears adn shift forks). Other than the trans problem, the only other problem I've had between now and Oct 2005 (when the fac warr was up) has been one regulator/rectifier and a CCT.... that's been it. Between the trans, CCT and the R/R it cost me about $500 total, so I guess it's about even.

It's up to you though, and how long you plan on keeping the bike. They are extremely reliable machines, but anything can happen. There was a guy awhile back with an RC-51 with 104,000 miles and he had an extended warranty. He found a crack in the swingarm, took it in and got a new swingarm under warranty... no problems (then a couple months later somebody pulled out in front of him and totalled the bike....)

I purchased extended warranty on my '06. Steering lock was broken and they replaced it without any questions.

I just bought the 5 years HONDA PLUS for $750 + $250 for 5 years thief protection for my 07.

It includes unlimited towing/transporting even if I crashed myself or if I get a flat tire. I don't have a pick up truck and I think for the towing/transporting part for 5 years really worth it. Also, if I go on a trip and got interrupted, it will cover up to $500 for hotel and meal.

are you joking? theres plenty of companies that have more than 3 year warranties that honor them... i wouldnt get the extended either but not because id be afraid if something did go wrong they wouldnt honor it
