Will swapping out the horn with a stebel nautilus void the Ducati warranty? or adding a heat-troller direct to battery?
I read through the warranty and it seems like yes. :(

No. See the Magnuson-Moss warranty act. In short, a modification only voids the warranty if the part was improperly installed (or otherwise inappropriate for the vehicle) and caused a non-defective part to fail. So you install a monster turbo and blow the engine, that's on you. You install an aftermarket exhaust and and a handlebar clamp breaks, no relation there.

They cannot void an entire warranty in any case, only the warranty on the part you specifically fucked up. Like if you failed to use a relay when installing the horn and the horn button burns up. Or if you install a heat troller and short out the ECU 'cause you're bad with wiring. But even in those unlikely cases, the rest of the warranty to the motor, the suspension, etc. is all still valid.
