Reputable Aftermarket Warranty Company
Let me start by admitting that I was stupid and did not purchase the Kawasaki extended warranty that was offered from the Dealer.
My question is this...does anyone have personal experience with a reputable aftermarket warranty company that really does provide good coverage once the initial manufacturer warranty runs out?
I need to buy a policy that I can trust in case something really bad happens to my motor like a hole in one of the pistons caused by detonation (this already happened!).
Thanks - Tom

First, detonation ain't gonna be cover by any warranty unless it was done by a bad tune from factory... or a failing OEM part that made the detonation possible.
But in most case, detonation will be done by bad fuel quality / octane ect....
I am not sure any Aftermarket Company will cover your ski under warranty, unless of course they rebuild it with their aftermarket parts.

I would love to trade it in, however, I have a ton of money invested in fixing it that I'll never get back so I'm going to have to keep it for a long time.

Mines coming due too haven't decided if I'm gonna extend it.

Kawi/OEM warranty = GOOD

I would be very apprehensive about letting the local hammerheads at the Kawasaki Dealership and/or some "Other Dealership Spin-Off / PWC Repair Facility" do major engine work on my $15,000 machine. I realize if it is a warranty issue - it needs to be conducted "under those" stipulations.
There has certainly been a history of guys getting a diagnosis, repair and consequently additional failure within a short period of time.
Reference this for "one" example only:
If this happened to my shit - I would seriously move into something else with a Manufacturer's Warranty - and consequently treat this as a tough lesson by learning from your '87 Octane mistake.
My advice = get your repair done - and go visit your local store - or even another store and get "seated" on another one.
Good Luck !!!!

Please allow me to append to my previous post - You may delete the last line in the previous post if:
"You have full confidence in your selected repair facility - they have demonstrated a reliable track record - concerning such repairs - OR you are skilled and knowledgeable enough to conduct such repairs yourself".
Good Luck !!!
