    Anybody ever had dealer not holding to warranty for any reason.

    Hey guys, I just bought a new 300x and the hours are racking up pretty quickly. I have 11 hours now in the last two outtings. 2 weeks of ownership. So far everything is great and I just purchased the factory service manual as I plan on doing most of the maintenance myself.

    I did purchase the 4 year extended kawi warranty but just want to make sure the dealer will not give me hell if they have not made alot of money off of the scheduled repairs. I am very particular with all my trucks, motocycle, quad and ski and would just rather do it myself. Not because of the cost but just for the satisfaction of knowing I can fix it myself.

    I only bought the warranty because of the scare tactic the dealer used on me because he said they had Ultras with some supercharger issues and was told it would cost $4000 bucks to replace.

    What do you all think?

    This is not my first ski and I am mechanical inclined so be easy.

    Thanks

    Congrats on your new 300X!
    Hope you got the faster one, the green one.

    If problem is deemed factory defect/screw up, it will be covered.
    If problme is deemed your screw up, it will not be covered.

    Just remember to save all receipts for the maintenance just in case.

    I think your dealer is full of bs saying that the $4000 to replace s/c which costs $1500, so $2500 for labor?
    Look for another dealer if you will ever use them for any kind of repair.

    $799. for the warranty. Total of 5 years with the factory 1 year. I thought it may be high but I talked them down to $11,800 on the price of the ski. Ebay helped me as I had the dealer pull up some of the prices I found there.

    Yeah, I got the green one and was willing to pay more for it. It is a beast and the pull is amazing. Click image for larger version.

    I thought the supercharger quote was high but times are tough for the dealers and they will tell you anything.

    I have every receipt even for the 93 octane fuel used.

    I will have to trust them at this point as nothing has been done wrong as of now but just wanted to know if anybody else had a bad experience.
