Appreciate the clarification. After dropping as much money as I did on a new boat, I wanted to make sure any mods I did would keep my warranty intact.@Maineiac I verified with my dealer that both Thrust Vectors and Cobras would not void my warranty. No matter which you go with, you won’t lose your warranty.
Yes that is correct and I have said that all along year after year but I think you misunderstood my message regarding warranty issues first I am stating that my systems do not void your warranty because I have so many documented situations where people claim to have been told by my competitor that my steering would void your warranty and there are plenty of posts over the years explaining the Magnuson Moss act on after market parts and voiding warranties those even go back to my competitor trying to prevent people from mixing my parts with his , but this is all before your time here.
Latest one to my recollection https://jetboaters.net/threads/cobra-jet.28908/page-2#post-502070 plus I have a file of customers who confirm this and other statements like the steering will rip your pump off I like that one especially after the wake steering fiasco with the fins magically bending the bolts during use even though they claimed that they were not in the water at speed my opinion of that system was they were the EDSEL of jet boat steering https://jetboaters.net/threads/thrust-vector-wake-update-deflector-lock-torture-testing.20861/#post-355768.
In any event I was confirming that my parts will not void the factory warranty and also pointing out that if you remove a factory part say some stainless steel standoffs from the reverse hood and replace them with different aftermarket parts should the E series reverse or any reverse for that matter fail to operate properly, Yamaha can refuse to cover that repair under the warranty if they can show that the aftermarket part caused their part to fail. But no they can not void your warranty completely. Hopefully this clarifies the point of the warranty statement.
