Vance & Hines exhaustD&S Harley Davidson, a dealer in Phoenix, Oregon, has its own blog, and recently they addressed a popular question.

"Will putting an aftermarket exhaust system on my Harley Davidson void the factory warrantee?"

Apparently, the answer is yes. According to D&S Harley Davidson...

This warranty will not apply to any motorcycle or sidecar as follows:

1. Which has not been operated or maintained as specified in the Owner's Manual.

2. Which has been abused, misused, improperly stored, used "off the highway," or used for racing or competition of any kind.

3. Which is not manufactured to comply with the laws of the market in which it is registered.

4. Installing off-road or competition parts to enhance performance may void all or part of your new motorcycle warranty. See a Harley-Davidson/Buell dealer for details.

Point #3 pretty much kills it for everyone of us. There's already a federal law against modifying the exhaust system.

On the other hand, I have a stage 1 modification on my Electra Glide, which includes a set of Vance & Hines slipons. And, I've had warrantee work done twice already, and having it done after the slipons were put on. The first time was to address the engine light coming on, and the second was to install a new rear cylinder head after the original one broke.

So while Harley-Davidson can void the warrantee if they want, the fact is that they don't, if they want to maintain happy customers.
