Void Warranty

Will adding an after market sproket and /or slip-on exhaust void existing warranty?

Yes and no, at least in the United States. An aftermarket part may void the warranty IF it caused or led to the problem under consideration. For example, let's say your engine craters on you and you've the sprocket. They can't blame engine failure on a sprocket (unless the sprocket change clearly caused severe overrevving or lugging, for example.)

Now let's say you get your engine fixed and then add an exhaust can. Now your turn signals quit working. Warranty implications?? Naaaa. But what if your fuel injection quits working? Will they honor the warranty given the fact that you've added the exhaust can? Maybe, but they could probably say "no" also, and either answer might be justifiable.

thats why I keep my stock exhaust... IF anything crazy were to happen I'd spend the hour or so to put it back on before I took it in... I know that it would be obvious if they looked into it that I haven't had it on for the 11+k miles that are on it but if they see it they'd prob. not think twice... so yeah who knows...

08 Versys 32+k and counting
