4 year extended warranty is $1100.

What does it actually cover? think about it. If it's a factory defect Yamaha will already have to cover it and the bike comes with a 1 year warranty regardless. Small things like a rectifier or a water pump could go bad I guess but those aren't really a big deal and would be rare.Everyone that told you NO gets to pay if you have something go wrong..............LOL
Never had one on a bike because I usually buy used, but can talk in length about coverage on cars(I was a service manager for 12 years). Most extra coverage policies are a "wear & tear" policy. Which means if the component fails due to your use, mis-use, or abuse it will be covered(except wear items). Factory coverage is a "workmanship or deflect" policy, which can leave a little "gray" area for everyone involved. 25 years ago I never told anyone to buy one, today however is a different story. Vehicles in general or becoming less mechanical and more electrical. Which means more shop time to troubleshoot and an electrical part can't be fixed, only replaced. Price out an ECU lately? I bet the gauge cluster on the FZ09 is crazy money.What does it actually cover? think about it.

You guys are absolutely right. I am glad I asked before going there.I agree with Paul. I was in the automotive Vehicle Service Contract business for 13 years representing General Electric. I only buy the extension if it makes sense. The price of $1000 is out of line. You can also shop the Factory Yamaha Extension at other dealers. Your dealer may be offering a dealer held or independent brand and marking it way up. Keep in mind that the FZ-09 is not overboard with electronics, so the lack of high-tech items has me less concerned about failure, but you still have 11 months to decide.
