Would fitting a non-Triumph approved slip-on exhaust invalidate the warranty or what about an aftermarket shock or seat?

I doubt it...that's not normally the way the motorcycle industry works.

But I think it would all depend on what your warranty claim was and whether that new part/parts was a contributing factor to the bike failing.

So the short answer is it shouldn't

My experience of warranty is that if the claim has nothing to do with what’s been changed then there shouldn’t be a problem...

For example a warranty claim for paint bubbling on the rear mudgaurd shouldn’t be affected by fitting an X pipe..

But if you’ve fitted a rack and drilled the mudgaurd I’d expect no joy with a claim...

If you fit an aftermarket seat or set of handlebars and the engine blows up, a warranty claim should not be unaffected...

Not in the US due to federal law except for Harley. The EPA entered into a settlement agreement with HD that required them to void warranties if the exhaust or emissions systems were altered with unapproved mods.

The amazing thing is that Harleys pass emissions standards in the first place

If your engine goes bang, simply replace the cat then have it trailered to the dealer

Not only the emissions warranty but the entire warranty is voided. Obama's EPA at work. Motorcycles have an infinitesimal effect on air quality. Lawn mowers are a significant one and no regs.

So the official word from the dealership... who I might add called Triumph to check...

By removing the catalytic converter the bikes fueling will be altered and as such will no longer be Euro 4 compliant. As a consequence any engine related issues will not be covered by the warranty. However, any non engine related issues will still be covered by the warranty.

So there you have it folks... we may not like it but it does in fact screw the warranty.

As mentioned though... should an engine issue occur it would be a simple case of replacing the cat before taking it to the stealership!
