I'm still dreaming of the day that I can add cams and a tuner and have a question about voiding the warranty. Through reading forum chat, I've learned that there is some law that says that a warranty can't be voided unless the moco can prove that the installed part caused the failure. Now saying that, will adding a SERT void my warranty. If you talk to the the dealer, they say it will.
So what is the real deal here and why if you happen to know.
You guys ever read the full text of the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act? Here's the text of the act as it would apply to us and our need to do stuff to our bikes. It's meant (my interpretation anyway) to allow the consumer to do reasonable mx work to keep the bike running. The best example would be the milestone service requorements, oil changes, etc. Bottom line is that I would remove anything non-original from the bike if I had to go in for service work of a covered part except for cosmetic items.
(9) The term "reasonable and necessary maintenance" consists of
those operations (A) which the consumer reasonably can be
expected to perform or have performed and (B) which are necessary
to keep any consumer product performing its intended function and
operating at a reasonable level of performance.
