    **edited - my post is regarding F3 not Ryker**

    The price does vary from dealer to dealer. It depends also on how many years you are buying. I bought 3 years for less than $700 with Sierra Cycles in Arizona.

    The 3 year B.E.S.T. extension should run you under $700. But the price is up to the dealership.

    The prices for extended warranty do vary from dealer to dealer. $700 ballpark seems to be lowball. You can shop around by phone. Berts Mega Mall (an advertiser is one). You do not have to buy the extended at the time of sale. You must buy the BEST before the original warranty expires though.

    All add ons for toys carry a large margin. Some dealers are more "greedy" than others.

    Just like Ann, I bought my BEST extended warranty from Sierra Cycles in Arizona. I paid $670.00 for 36 months. Remember, you don't have to buy it when you buy your Spyder. You do have to buy it before your original warranty expires and you can buy it from any Can Am dealer. I bought mine over the phone (my Spyder, too).

    That was an aftermarket warranty and most are not worth the paper written on. Many dealers will not even deal with these shisters. Leave it to the owner to attempt reimbursement after the fact. I would not touch one of these scams.

    I'm curious any Spyder owners that have used this service? What is included and what isn't? Would love to hear any stories it proved beneficial.

    I posted this in another thread on extended warranties but suppose you missed it....

    I will come in on the Yes side. Been there, done that, BRP covered the $11k cost of a complete new engine assembly when mine blew coming home from a long trip last fall. BRP was actually very good to deal with but I will say, MUCH of the outcome has to do with your dealer and how well they know the bike and BRP's systems. How to report claims, how to work the parts system, and communication with several different departments in BRP that are not real good at speaking with each other.

    In my case, there was never really any intent on BRPs part to deny the claim, trouble was there were no 2015 Rotax 1330 SE engines in the parts system. And no 2016s either which were the only superseded part number. Neither the dealer nor I wanted to attempt ordering sufficient parts to build a new engine from what we had left of my old one....starting with a new case. Phone calls to parts and engineering support for service resulted in the answer that yes, a brand new 2019 engine assembly will indeed work fine in a 2015 bike. They placed the order and had the crate in hand in less than a week. Total repair bill was over $11k. More than the bike was worth but they fixed it. Bike is running great with its new 2019 drive train. BRP BEST warranty was actually pretty easy to deal with. They even paid the entire tow bill which was far more than the $200 limit on the roadside assistance. Heck of a way to get new plugs, filters and other items I was due for at that time for free.....

    Avoid ALL aftermarket extended warranties. They simply do not handle claims in the same straightforward manner that the dealer processes standard warranty claims.

    Just called Sierra Cycles in Arizona. They said it would be $680.00 for 36 months. And, I can do the deal over the phone. My local dealer told me $999.00. What should I do? Lol.

    I bought the B.E.S.T warranty in July 2016, and it expires on Aug. 5th, 2019. I paid around $ 700.00 for the extended B.E.S.T. warranty.

    I have a 2014RTS-SE6.

    I wont be buying an off brand Warranty right now, because I don't have a job.

    you can tell your dealer that you are finding cheaper prices on the extended warranty. They will usually match it. If they don't buy the cheaper.

    Deanna,. I am curious if you ever used your Xtended Waurentee, and if so, on what, and was the work done from the Dealer you bought it from, or another Dealer? Thanks,

    Cause was failed oil pump drive bearings. Needle bearings defect and disintegrated. Then lost oil pressure followed by catastrophic failure. Yes, the 2015 F3-S in my signature. New 2019 engine/trans assembly installed and running great. Have about 1500 miles on new engine. Odd failure, comes under the $&!t happens category....

    And since you asked Deanna, My bike was purchased from Pitbull in MO (one of the very early F3s they brought to Spyderfest in 2015). BEST was purchased from Berts Mega Mall. Engine replacement was at my local servicing dealer in Houston. (Mancuso North). I do my own maintenance. None of this was any problem.

    I would mention the better deal you were offered from Sierra to your local dealer and tell him if he can match, you will buy from him. If not, buy if from Sierra....

    Are all BRP Dealers obligated to sell BEST Xtended Waurentees, and are they required to Servce BEST Waurentee Claims, or what if they are not interested in selling low profit BEST Insurance, and are also not interested in the hassles of working the low Margin profit returns on BEST parts and Labor, and time spent with the back and forth beween the Dealer’s Tech and BRP? Cutting to the chase, can Joe Blow, who bought his Spyder over the phone from a Dealer in Chicago, and bought his BEST Xtended Waurentee from Bert’s in California, or Sierra in Arizona, while living in Orlando, Florida, expect his local Florida Dealer to be obliged to honor his BEST Waurentee through the Policy’s expiration? I’ll bet BRP Dealers, in general, despise having to deal with any Xtended Warrantees, including BEST, especially if they think it will be them who has to deal with the Sevice Claims, and they avoid even mentioning these Waurentees ,once the initial sale of the Spyder has been consumated.

    This is one of the advantages of BEST over any aftermarket warranty. The repair and claim process is EXACTLY the same as any other warranty repair. And they have no idea where the warranty was purchased. A BRP dealer cannot refuse to do warranty work on BRP products they are a dealer for. Never even heard of one that tried. They do sometimes offer front of line or expedited service to purchasers of bikes from their dealership in busy seasons. For most dealers, sales and service are entirely separate profit centers with very different goals in mind. I do wish BRP would implement a corporate wide head of line privilege for down bikes traveling outside their home area like other manufactures already do. Harley and Ford I know both have this policy as I have personally experienced it. BRP does not. But this is a separate issue.

    Any dealer that refuses to honor warranty service be cause a bike was purchased elsewhere, will not be a dealer long. For the most part, the service department does not care where the bike was purchased.
