Call the extended warranty company. If it hasn't kicked in yet you should get all your buy in money back or they may just transfer it all to your new purchase. Don't trust the dealer on this call the warranty company direct.

The warranty is no good to the dealer because it can only be transferred to another individual not to dealers. He may try and cash it in somehow which would give him more than the $500 he offered you.

I've had extended warranties on 2 different bikes and got a prorated amount back each time. Prorated because I was into the warranty period on both bikes.

The term is unearned premium, they should refund all the premium, since they never had any risk. The dealer makes a nice profit, don't expect them to be helpful. When I traded my Harley, they insisted on my visiting the dealer to get a refund of my wheel & tire coverage. They originally said they would email the cancelation document, never did and got an extra month's consideration due to the delay.

The unearned premium check for my first bike came directly to me (2004). On my second bike the unearned premium check went to the dealer who then passed it on to me (2018).

If I'm working the deal correctly in my head, the dealership is selling you the GT for $26,000 (for number's sake) with a trade-in value of your B at $18,000 (for number's sake). This nets a trade difference of $8000. If the GT is $24,000, your trade is worth $16,000. You MIGHT get more selling it yourself, but then you have to deal with the lookie Lou's, the Low-Ballers, and the "I'm coming to look at it, be there at X o'clock!" and they never show. You spend the day waiting for nothing. Your money, your decision. I traded a 2005 LT instead of selling it myself for the reasons I've listed. Of course I didn't get as much as I hoped, but the deal was easy and was an acceptable amount in my eyes. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

My current extended warranty is With BMW Motorrad. Talked to the dealer again today and told them to call BMW directly. I bought the current B new in June 2018 and it had 3 year factory warranty on it so definitely not into the 3 year extended yet. I will Likely do this deal if they will just agree to port the extended warranty to the new bike. If I don't like the answer on the warranty I will call the mothership myself.

Check with Brentune, but I thought that if you had a handheld and flashed your bike back to stock they would rewrite a tune for $100 if it's the same model bike. Can anyone confirm?

I spoke with Bren and its $295 to map the tune to the new bike if the old one goes back to stock. I can live with that. seems fair.

So I closed this deal today on the bike. Nice Black Friday purchase for me. Pretty stoked actually to be moving to a GT. My only concern now is the GT still needs to have the transmission recall done. My 2018 still has an oil leak the dealer cant fix from a year ago. Hopefully I get lucky and this one doesn't leak after its been opened up. this whole post recall oil leak issue is a total BS. The Mothership needs to get this sorted and make the correct parts available.

I will have a few "B" accessories to post here shortly like the bag crash bars, dash bag, saddle bag liners, Remus pipes, RDL seat.

I do have one question to anyone with a GT. I have the Shad 58 top box that I will use on the GT. I am assuming that Shad plate with just sit on top and fasten to the stock GT carrier with some u bolts or something. Am I correct with this assumption or is there other kits available or another better way to do this? Thanks

Congrats on the GT. That color combination is one of my favorites along with the Blue Planet Metallic Option 719.

Hopefully the trans recall goes smoothly on your new GT. Mine had an oil leak as well, but my dealer traced it to a gasket and repaired it. No issues now. Nice stain on my garage floor though...

Did you ask the dealer about the recall? When I got my 2019 GT in September, I asked them if they did the recall. Well, they didn't, but said it was done at the port by BMW, before it was sent to a dealer. They showed me the paperwork confirmation that it was done. You may have the same situation.

The sales guy told me the bike needed the recall done but I didn't actually verify with service directly as that dept was closed for the day. The bike was a June 2029 build so I doubt it was done that early in the year. I told the sales guy that I wanted the bike to stay there for atleast a week after the recall was completed to see if it is leaking by then. It seems to be 3-4 days for the leak to appear after a full clean up......atleast on my current B
