OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE
What Are The Procedures To Obtain Service Under This Warranty?
To obtain service under this warranty, the original Consumer Purchaser should immediately contact the dealer where the Engine was purchased. The dealer will then contact S&S® Cycle, Incorporated (the "Company") for a determination as to whether the defect in the Engine or part is covered by this warranty.
THE DEALER OR SERVICE PROVIDER MUST RECEIVE AUTHORIZATION FROM THE COMPANY BEFORE PROVIDING SERVICE UNDER THIS WARRANTY.
In the event that the Company determines the Engine or part must be returned to the Company for evaluation or service, the Company will provide the dealer with a Return Authorization Number to put on the shipping container for identification.
The original Consumer Purchaser or dealer must clean and properly package the Engine or part so as not to cause further damage and return the Engine or part, shipping costs prepaid, to the Company. The Return Authorization Number must be clearly visible on the outside of the shipping container. If the Engine or part must be cleaned prior to warranty inspection the cost of cleaning will be charged to the original Consumer Purchaser or dealer.
The original Consumer Purchaser or dealer must also send to the Company a detailed explanation of the relevant facts concerning the nature of the problem, the specific use of the Engine, and the circumstances giving rise to the defect or problem.
If it is not practicable to contact the dealer for warranty service, the original Consumer Purchaser may contact the Company at the following address, telephone number, fax number or e-mail address:

This warranty covers only the original Consumer Purchaser of these parts and is not transferable.
What Does This Warranty Cover?
S&S® Cycle, Incorporated (the “Company”) warrants these parts to be free from defects in material and workmanship. If the parts become defective during the warranty coverage period, the Company will, at its option, repair or replace any, or all, defective parts. Repair or replacement of defective parts is the sole and exclusive remedy.
With the exception of electrical and electronic componenets, the warranty coverage remains in force for a period of twelve (12) months from the date that the original Consumer Purchaser buys the parts.

However, warranty coverage will automatically terminate if the original Purchaser sells or otherwise transfers all or any portion of the purchased parts.
What Is Not Covered By This Warranty?
The Company shall not pay or be responsible for the cost of shipping the defective parts to the Company for service under this warranty, nor will the Company pay for the cost of labor to remove and/or replace the defective parts.
Moreover, the Company shall have no obligation under this warranty in the event that the parts become defective in whole or in part as a result of improper assembly, installation, break-in, maintenance, or use, or any other misuse or mistreatment of the parts, including, without limitation, operation of the parts with fuels, oils or lubricants not conforming to specifications published by the Company or continued operation of the parts after a defect or malfunction occurs or is identified or suspected.

The Company provides touch-up paint with powdercoated parts. It is the customer’s responsibility to repair minor finish damage to prevent or inhibit further deterioration.
It is the responsibility of the original Consumer Purchaser to cease operation as soon as a defect or malfunction is identified or suspected. The failure to cease operation once a defect or malfunction exists can cause substantial damage to the Company’s parts that could otherwise be avoided.
In addition, the Company shall have no obligation under this warranty for parts defects caused by alteration including, but not limited to, polishing; powdercoating; painting; removing or reconfiguring any components; modification, repair, or unauthorized service.

The Company shall have no obligation under this warranty when a competition application, including but not limited to a turbocharger, supercharger or nitrous oxide, is used with the Engine. Further, the Company shall have no obligation under this warranty for any parts that are included in a Competition Package Option offered by the Company since the Package is for use in racing and similar competitive activities.
THE COMPANY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ALL CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THESE PARTS.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.
