Did I mod my bike too soon?

I have a '07 Gixxer 750. Had it for 2 months now and has 800 mi. on it. I just installed a Yoshi R-55 slip on and a PC w/mapping for said exhaust. Was this too soon? And since I did it myself I probably voided my 1 yr. warranty.

You should be good to go with it, I know people who put full exhausts on before mile 1, but they are track bikes.

You didnt void your warranty. If your clutch goes bad they will fix it. Now if burn a hole in your pipe they wont fix that because its not an OEM part. But other than that, you are good!

it's a slip on so you could just take everything off before you bring it to the dealer and they would never know if you experience any warranty related problems.

Just hit 12000 miles on mine, and it's an '07. Half of those miles were racked up out in Cali though. Exhausts don't void your warranty.
