I just had the starter solenoid and temp sensor replaced under warranty. I got lots-o-mods and there was no issue at all. I suppose if the mod affected the part you want warranty work on it would be an issue though.
I have a CF open clutch cover and just took my bike in for 600mi service. I thought they give me a hard time having my clutch springs exposed etc, and all they said was I need to get carbon exhaust to match! I agree
I would guess it has a lot to do with your dealer. Although it's often best to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission, if you're really concerned about losing the warranty, fish around for an answer from the dealer you'd eventually ask to do your warranty work.
I was interested in putting a set of slip ons on my 800 and was told by the dealer that I could only put DPs or Termi pipes on without voiding the warranty ......In the same breath, the sales guy says "We can add a K&N, open your lid, and add a Power Commander III in case you want to take it to the track." These sales guys are too much.
I think the bottom line is.....If they can sell you somethin' the warranty work is no problem. Either way I'm gonna make mods and if there IS a problem I'll handle it......... legally.
well the dna dealer rep down here in florida denied authorization for warranty repair for overheating based on the fact i had a powercommander installed... so i've returned the bike to stock... i had to track down a replacement air box lid too. it's really up to the dealer and the dna dealer representative... if you have either that's worth a more than a pile of s h i t things like that shouldn't be a bother but if you have someone with a chip on their shoulder it could make your life more difficult than necessary. legally they can't deny warranty repairs unless they can show the change was the cause of the problem... reality is that there's a bunch of dicks employed by dna and it takes a letter to ceo to get anything positive to happen.
