Warranty vs. Aftermarket Parts
I was at the dealer yesterday getting all of the recall work done when the warranty manager noticed that I had an after market can on the exhaust. She asked what else had been done to the bike and I said that I had upgraded the air filter as well. She said that she would have to check and see if they could still do the software portion of the upgrade, "Flat Battery" is what she told me, with the aftermarket parts. I was also informed that running the filter and the can would make the bike run leaner and would most likely void the warranty on the motor if anything happened.
Simply wondering if anyone else has been told this? I have a hard time believing that an air filter and slip-on can would void the warranty on the motor. I have done the same thing to cars and trucks all my life. I am a firm believer in letting the engine breath better.
