    Akrapovic headers

    Does fitting the akrapovic headers (without the Cat) invalidate the Warranty?

    As Alex says, no. But.... if something was to fail on the bike which the headers could be a contributing factor to, it can cause a warranty claim to be voided. I've just recently had this so I now know it through and through.

    So basically if your fork seal goes pop, it's not going to be blamed on your headers. But if your bodywork starts melting because of excess heat, don't go expecting these to be covered.
