The rule of thumb is extended warrenties are a waste of money except for the company selling them. However, if the warranty coverage is good (not sure what they offer and what the fine print says) and your not mechanically inclined then there may be a benefit if you have to take your ATV to the dealer for any type of repair. Just remember, nothing will be covered that you damage and nothing that is a wear item will be covered. Only manufacturer defects and that can be a hard case to prove with an ATV, especially if you ride one like it's supposed to be. So if you are a leisure driver you probably won't break anything and if your a serious hard core driver they won't cover the damage as they will blame it on you. In the end, the math and $$$$ is in their favor, not yours.
