Would a lift void the warranty?


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

It depends on the service department and what broke. Kawasaki requires pictures.

I had a rear seal go out on rear axle, Kawasaki warrantied it and I have arched arms and spanned shocks.

Now if I broke an axle, not sure they are going to warranty an axle running out side of factory spec geometry

My guess would be any DIY upgrade could put you at higher risk of them voiding warranty. My guess is an authorized dealer wouldn't do an install that would negatively influence the warranty without full disclosure in writing up front.

I May consider taller tires to keep warranty in effect. May be moving in this direction next year. I research things to death in advance of most purchases I make.

Portals are about the only way to lift and not change the geometry but dang they're expensive. Could replace a lot of parts for what those cost.

Mine has the bracket lift and get's used pretty hard hauling corn and trailers. No issues yet knock on wood.

My dealership installs the same lift and recommended mine. I put it on myself though. Figuring out how to jack it high enough is the hardest part.

Get with me one day and we will run over to lewisbeel where I keep my Mule. I just put Elka Shocks And added new tires. It’s pricey but it kills two birds with one stone.i didn’t measure but I bet I’m 4” taller and way more sturdy

If you run elka’s you can span back to normal geometry in 5 mins. They can’t void a warranty claim for shocks. Or you can put original shocks back on in 15 mins.

I can’t hide arched arms and 30” tires.
