while confirming my 4 year YES plan with yamaha, i asked them a couple of question about electrical/ wiring things. i was told by them, that if any modifications to factory wiring harness,ie: tapping into,splicing etc...., gives them the right to refuse warranty work to any electrical issues that may arise while under original 12 month or YES. i was told that directives to dealerships, require hem to start looking at wiring mods initially when a bike comes in with any electrical problems. they said it can backfire on you if you end up with some actual mfg's defect. this would include all electrics, including fuel injection electrics. excluded are dealer installed genuine S/Y accessories , direct harness plug-ins and alarm connected directly to battery terminals. thought someone might be interested. this is odd, because nothing is voided for exhaust changes. some of the rules are more scrutized when you get the YES.

Re: wiring answer from star/yamaha

Thought the FTC and SEMA protection applied to bikes as well and not just cars.....I call B.S....they would have to prove that the parts installed caused the problem!!

Re: wiring answer from star/yamaha

my original thought. sounds like they just want to find reason to not fix something. probably shoulda never asked them, now they may have red flagged my file... i agree to the smell of BS. sorry about the long winded OP.

Unless they can see an obvious cause I don't see how they can deny a warranty claim. Guess if something goes wrong we'll have to undo all electrical mods before taking it to the shop.

it has to be a direct cause say you spliced in a another headlight in to the wiring for the stock headlight and it shorted to ground blowing the headlight and fuse for example then its your fault and they aren't liable. Now if you did this and your fuel pump went out for example then they have to cover the fuel pump. Its all covered under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. They have to prove how the splicing or any other mod directly effected the problem. If they can't then tuff luck for them they have to cover it.
