How long does factory warranty lasts on brand new bike?
Hi Guys , anyone knows how to derestrict the new 2017 ninja 650? i just got my full licence and need more power now... Cheers
From what I have read from net rider forums, it is illegal and you won't be able to register the motorcycle as there is a significant change in the power to weight ratio.
It's not illegal for a full licensed rider, but it will void your insurance. If you want to have an insured bike, you will need to register it as unrestricted, but then it can never go back to restricted so the resale value will drop.
Since LAMS approved bikes are easier to sell with the more riders wanting them, you'd be better off to sell the bike and buy the unrestricted version.
If you're trying to do a sneaky and you aren't really full lisence, try the way they do it with the 2012-16 bikes, it is a massive pain in the rear to get the throttle pin out,involves tearing down the bike, and using a makeshift security torx T20 screwdriver bit.. The clip in the back is easy. Just remember. Your insurance will be voided and if you drop the bike, there's no way to get that pin back in quickly.. Especially if you're in hospital, and if you hit a pedestrian and the cops find your bike was unrestricted illegally, it goes from an accident to manslaughter.
Be smart, ride safe, make smart decisions.

I don't understand this. It's the same engine, no, just "restricted"?? Yes, it will change the power to weight ratio, but if you have a full licence, why is it illegal to de-register the bike, remove the restrictor on the throttle, remap the ECU, then re-register it as an unrestricted bike? Also, if you inform your insurer that the bike has been de-restricted and they accept that, how will it void your insurance?
