Wheels Motorcycles offer a lifetime guarantee

Postby wallywant on Fri May 17, 2013 5:39 pm

hi all, just posting to ask do you think a warranty is worth its weight as I purchased my Yamaha xj6s from wheels motor cycles and it came with a life time guarantee providing I own the bike.now would you scub this and do you own servicing or would you pay them once a year approx. £200 for a service which includes a free mot if its due.just not sure the best way forward please advise.many thanks.xj6s.

I looked at the small print once and decided what they want to maintain the guarantee wasn't worth paying them £200+ per year to change the oil filter and plugs.

I do most of my own servicing so for me it wasn't worth it.

Thanks still strange I still don't really know the best avenue as the xj6s Yamaha is only 18 months old and now done 7000 mile so not sure really as of that age you don't know if any thing will go wrong that's all.cheers.

I would check the small print, but it may well be worth getting.
The main problem I think would be nothing wear and tear is covered, so basically clutch,bearings, cables wouldnt be covered, as they are classed as consumables.
Most japanese bikes hardly ever go wrong, but if something bad does happen which isnt wear and tear, ie snapped con rod, failed gearbox, engine bearing failure, it would cost a fortune to repair.
If you not able to service your bike yourself, I would go for it. Also, remember when you sell the bike, you will have a full service history, which does appeal to some people
