• Warning!!

    Riding a tuned or deristricted EMTB is not a trivial offence and can have serious legal consequences. Also, many manufacturers can detect the use of a tuning device or deristricting method and may decline a repair under warranty if it was modified from the intended original specification. Deristricting EMTB's can also add increased loads for motors and batteries. Riding above the local law limit may reclassify the bike as a low-powered bike, requiring insurance, registration and a number plate.

    Be aware of your local country laws. Many laws prohibit use of modified EMTB's. It is your responsibility to check local laws. Ignoring it, has potential implications to trail access, and risk of prosecution in the event of an accident.

No nothing, thought someone would no
I would suspect that the reason no one has replied is that you're targeting a very small percentage of people.
Firstly they need to have a Badass box installed, then they need to have had a motor issue that requires warranty, then the motor issue would need to be specifically related to a certain failure mode and diagnosed to show that the speed de-restriction was in place and then the said de-restriction was the cause of the failure.

You could also look at it from the other angle, that no one replied because the boxes haven't caused any motor failures.
