Are the warranties a hassle to deal with when something goes wrong with your bike? Does the dealer give you the run around?
I purchased a warranty when i bought my first Burgman, a 2007 AN400 in April 2008. In 2009 i began having some clutch issues, like a grinding noise.
There was a bulletin put out from Suzuki on this. I brought my bike in, the dealer said it seems like you need the fix stated in the bulletin. They took my warranty
info, called Suzuki, and Suzuki autorized the $1200. repair. They also redesigned the air intake which was causing the problem sucking dirt into the clutch
assembly. This issue was fixed for the 2008 model. So, i had no issue with the warranty process but my issue was actually a bulletin put out by Suzuki.
On the warranty it tells you what is... and what is not... covered. Keep meticulous records because you must follow the maintainence requirements by Suzuki or they will
void your warranty.
The Suzuki warranty is much better than any 3rd party after market warranty a dealer might try to sell you. I have a friend that had a after market warranty on his "05" 650
and it was a nightmare for him to get his fixed. They tried every trick in the book not to cover his repair. Just a FYI...
