Yes, you ARE covered for three years, should some component fail, as we all are, but you are not covered for all the routine maintenance costs that you see listed in your owner's manual and those services, (shop rate @ $80 - $100.00 per hour), which many of us are capable of doing ourselves, will cost you a bundle over three years and for as long as you own the bike.

Stories of bungled work done on owner's bikes by dealers abounds on any m/c website you can find, hence, those that are capable like to do it themselves to ensure it is done right, according to the factory service manual in many cases.

Right to repair legislation is being looked at by governments right now, as this corporate money grab, by holding vehicle specifications hostage by the manufacturer and dealers, is an overreach of their authority over the vehicles they sell.

If you are happy to spend hundreds, or thousands of dollars over the course of many years of owning a vehicle, that is your right, but most of us would prefer to save that money for trips and fuel and buying just those parts that we need to keep our bikes in fine working order.

In 26 years of owning a Honda ST1100, I have saved literally tens of thousands of dollars by doing all the work on this bike myself, except for tire changes, thanks to having the factory service manual from Honda.
Yes I hear what you are saying but for me personally a RE dealership doing the servicing will suit me better. 

The milage I do will be small probably less than 1000 miles a year and service intervals for me at least will be far apart.

Folks, I am located in Dallas, TX. the first service cost is around $600 for my meteor 350 stellar. I am handy myself as these dealers charge hell a lot of money. If any one is interested in the service manual email me. I got it from RE factory on all the details of the bike. Will be glad to share it with who ever is interested as its a huge file around 350 mb PDF around close to 2000 pages.

Not likely, as that would violate copyright laws.

Strange…at first I‘ve got a notification from the forum, with a link to Google Drive, that did not not work. After that 2 emails arrived, asking me for 50 $ payment for the manual…

Bit deceitful should have said from the off that he wanted payment for it.  Think I will wait till it becomes more widely available from a more trustworthy source.

Royal Enfield have produced a comprehensive workshop manual for this model, but it is not something they allow dealers to sell in a paper format or even give away as a free of charge download. Of course, this should be made available to owners in one form or another as it is an incredibly useful asset, but ourselves and dealers are restricted by Royal Enfield on this. Hopefully RE may take another stance in the future, so that these manuals can be made easier to access for private owners.

The manual sounds like it is in circulation already, and whilst we cannot host this directly on the forum, an easy way for files to be shared would be through something like google drive.   

Just to note, and it may not be anything sinister, but please urge on the side of caution when sending across your private e-mail address, and certainly do not entertain making any form of payment for someone to send a copy of these manuals.

Thank you that's really interesting and wise advice, Dantheman. From that screenshot it looks like a lovely workshop manual which would be not only useful but enjoyable to have on the bookshelf for any Meteor enthusiast.
