    I have seached for this several times, and am probably not wording correctly, so I am going to ask.
    Friends, an indy, and a dealer, have not given me a straight forward answer regarding this question: I want a stage 1 upgrade, can I use all aftermarket products, or some aftermarket products or do I need all oem?
    Example 1: Spoke w/ dealer. Told him I wanted non-hd pipes, non-hd a/c, and non-hd fuel management. His response was warranty voided. So, I ask about all the above with the exception of HD fuel management. His response: "you have given me information that may void your warranty."
    Can I do a stage 1 that won't void my warranty?

    Doing a Stage 1 using aftermarket parts WILL NOT void your warranty. The Stage 1 is probably THE most used upgrade. If that is the position the dealer wants to take then I'd find another one.

    Many of us here have upgraded using both MOCO parts and various aftermarket parts.

    Back in March 2009 I put on the stage 1 myself with V&H mufflers, Ness AC (now using V&H V02 AC) and the TFI. I've run into issues with my TBW, throwing codes and my dealer does the warranty work with no issues. He has never said anything about the TFI under the seat or the pipes/AC.

    Now I've bought two bikes from them.

    Ride safe and have fun.

    I just purchased my bike 2 weeks ago today. (2011 FLTRU) The first thing the dealer suggested that I do with my $1000 chrome cash was do the Stage1 with True Duals to get rid of the cat and go with Bassani mufflers. I never give a thought about it voiding the warrenty since they suggested it. By the way: I love this bike!
