Harley Warranty Voided if Thunmaxx is installed?

Is it true that my Harley extended service plan is voided because the stock efi module is no longer on my bike?

they will do and say anything to void a warranty. and they probably wouldn't be wrong to assume that along with that TM there are some other mods that kida go with that TM like bread and butter.. exhaust, AC and ??cams..so, did the dealer install the TM, or the other mods? if they didn't, you'll probably will need a lawyer to get anywhere with them.

you could always put back all the stock stuff if a problem arises, conveniently, when your'e close to home so you could make those changes.. IMO.

if its a problem with the engine I would say possibly anything else they would have to prove that the changes you made caused the problems .

Unhappy MOCO Politics

The moco will void the esp for any reason AT ALL!

You need to study the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act and be prepared to use it.

ESP can be a major pain!

Good luck

esp is not a warranty so the magnusson moss warranty act does not apply. you must read the fine print of your contract. they can void the esp for changing shocks or wheels, especially if they are not a stock harley size.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

It isn't MoCo that administers the ESP. It's an outside company. They've been sending inspectors out more often to look at claims.

You took out the ECM, or Electronic Control Module, the part that effectively controls every part of the motorcycle, and replaced it with something else.

And then it surprises you that you extended warranty would be void??

Just so you know, if you purposely ride the motorcycle with no air in the tires, your tire warranty will be void too.

Noy trying to be an ass, but REALLY??

The MOCO will find a way to void your warranty, especily if the parts was/were not installed by a dealer and not ''Harley'' be ready for a fight, even farting on your seat while riding and the seat is not covered by your ESP anymore because of unproper mixture of oxygen

I hate to break it to you but I personally know of 3 moco dealers that POINT OUT ON PURPOSE every esp violation they can... I was there when a mechanic was pointing out problems on a guys bike for the report BEFORE esp was notified.

DON"T forget the moco mechanics can also BRAND/MARK/IDENTIFY your vin as being "modified" "not street legal" Race track only" etc for warranty and esp claims...

Yes esp is administered by an outside agency for the moco.......

Just like the KGB was an outside agency for the kremiln!
