California exhaust regulations explained.

As posted in recent on-line Dealer News:


The Motorcycle Industry Council and its members have developed a "Frequently Asked Questions" document aimed at clearing the air over the complexities of selling and installing aftermarket exhausts in California.
The list addresses questions dealers might have about exhaust system sales following recent investigations by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) into possible emissions violations.
A PDF of the document is attached below.
Dealers in the state have been complaining over the last two years about stepped-up enforcement by CARB regulators on the sale, installation and in some cases even showroom display of aftermarket exhausts. And it's safe to say that regulators from other states may be monitoring CARB's enforcement efforts to determine their applicability elsewhere.
The MIC document provides guidance on a number of issues, including which systems are CARB-compliant, what systems are considered replacement parts, how to tell if a modified exhaust system has been approved by the state, when it's legal to sell a modified system without a CARB label, and which sales records must be maintained by the retailer.

READ the pdf Ed

its about having emissions stuff and the correct stampings on the pipes.....EPA closed the noise office 30 years ago according the pdf

I read the whole thing, why do you think I posted it?.....It is the noise issue that has the government cracking down everywhere.....otherwise they would still be ignoring us. The smog thing is just the easiest first step.

Why does anyone still want to live in California?

Not sure. It seems like they have rules for rules.

Because California is awesome. You have to be from here to get it. ;)

Kind of along the same lines of me never wanting to live in the south.

The land is beautiful but there's nothing awesome about tyranny. I value freedom over aesthetics.
