Default Pro RMK extended warranty worth it?

Made up my mind to buy a pro and am contemplating the extended warranty but at a tune of $1300 for 4 more years unsure if its worth it?

Call Michelle at Oregon Trail Sports. I got a 5 year warranty through Cornerstone from her for a lot cheaper than that.

It would also depend on your plans for the sled. If you are going to leave it alone, an extended warranty may be useful, if you plan on messing with the motor, the warranty may turn out to be useless.

No poo bash in here. I went with an extra year is all and spent the rest on accessories. They wanted to sell me an extra 4 years for $1300. I don't even typically keep a sled more than 3. Hope I don't regret it.

Speaking of junk.

Warranty is useful if it fixes a great sled that you have been happy with. S**t happens and if you don't have the skills (or desire) to improve and fix it yourself then it's nice to just drop it off and let someone else fix it and bring it back to the great sled you started with.

But,,, if you started with junk and they put the same junk back on when it breaks and 3 years later they say they improved the junk but it's still junk so you go have to go back again, then,, warranty has been a waste of your time IMO.
Instead you should have spent the money on a Team clutch and jackshaft and hyvo gears and chain, maybe some running boards and suspension relocation kits or anti stab kit or steering fix kit or venting kit or "get rid of a suitcase" kit or,,,.

IMO buying a great sled first (like the Pro you are looking into)and don't worry about it breaking. Just ride it (as it should be). But if you are the type that can't fix things yourself and tend to worry about it then a warranty can be a good investment if you keep it COMPLETELY stock.
Make sure you have a heart to heart with the dealer you pick about the warranty and what you think you are getting. Then get it in writing and read it well before you lay out the cash. Keep a copy with your will at our lawyers office lol.

In the end, starting with a great sled and keeping it running is way cheaper then starting with a junk sled built with more Chinese parts than a cupie doll. Warranty or not.
