I was told yesterday From another duke owner that changing the exhaust would void the warranty idk how true this is but can anyone confirm this?
Thank you for the info.i do want a full system started saving for the austin racing rs22 but just wanted to make sure planing on getting a pcv for it i dont really like how the akra look and sound i think it kinda kills the look of the bike with that big canisterAll true replies so far.
I used to be the exclusive distributor for LeoVince and then Arrow Exhaust in N. America. There are usually aftermarket options supported by the manufacturers. For example, Arrow makes 90% of the OEM pipes for Triumph so they're pretty good off the show room floor - the aftermarket Arrows offer better performance by getting rid of emissions equipment, not improving exhaust flow/back-pressure/resonance. If you go slip-on, the sky is the limit, go with whoever you like. If you want a full system (which will need a tune) the 790/890 has a PP offering from Akrapovic as well as a full map... it's very pricey, however. So you'd need to weigh your value of your guaranteed warranty against the cost of the exhaust.
The single biggest risk you run with an exhaust is engine damage from not having your fueling re-mapped. Without a tune your motor WILL run lean, which means hot... depending on the dealer and the local KTM rep, that could be an easy way to deny warranty work. They would, however, have to show that the failure was due to the modifications in order to comply with Magnuson–Moss... but heat is usually the killer (in one form or another) of all mechanical failure in a motor.
Yea i want to go full system but was looking at Slipons and really like how the ixrace mk2 sound with the cat on i can imagine how it would sound with out the cat thinking if i go the slip on way i will get that with a decat pipe.Stick with a slip on during the warranty period and you'll be safer
I got a MIVV slip on with the expectation to get a decat when the warranty expires.Yea i want to go full system but was looking at Slipons and really like how the ixrace mk2 sound with the cat on i can imagine how it would sound with out the cat thinking if i go the slip on way i will get that with a decat pipe.
