FYI-

I spoke with Honda Motorcycle and inquired if modifing the exhaust and air intake would void the warranty. The response was
"We do not advise owners to modify the motorcycle as we do not test aftermarket parts. The addition of after market parts will not neccessarily void your warranty. If the damage is determined to be a result of the aftermarket parts, then the repair would not be covered, but if it was determined to be the result of a manufactoring defect it would be covered under warranty"

Of course the use of the word "neccessarily" was strategic.

There is actually a federal law covering the modification of vehicles.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (P.L. 93-637) is a United States federal law (15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq.). Enacted in 1975, it is the federal statute that governs warranties on consumer products.

If I remember how it was explained to me the manufacturer can only deny you warranty coverage if they can proove the damage was directly caused by the aftermarket products.

So for example if your crank shaft bearings go out at 2000 miles, unless they can proove that it was somehow due to you not running baffles in your pipes, they have to cover it.

That usually falls onto the dealer whether or not they will help you... I call it the dickhead curve... most dealers are willing to work with you on warranty stuff, so long as your mod is not actually causing the issue or problem... ex. My dealer is more than happy to work with me and you can see my list of mods below... if he is he only dealer in town.. the you mitt be asses out, otherwise your warranty is in the Honda computer system and it might be wise to find one that will help you and likes Honda's billfold...
