CA to start smogging bikes?

What the hell is this? Is this just a way for CA to make some easy cash?

Where are you seeing this?

Fran Pavely, the POS legislator, introduced a bill a year or so ago that ultimately got shot down but I'm not surprised that the issue has reared it's ugly head again.

No new bills using the words "motorcycle," "test," "smog" or "emmissions" have been introduced according the search engine on the CA legislature site. The only recent change is the law that states exhaust systems on motorcycles manufactured after January 1, 2013 have to meet Federal sound regulations.

I wouldn't trust anyone at Cycle Gear on legal issues unless he or she can tell you where to find the bill, the bill # or even when the legislature is in session.

Little OT but i think its stupid in general you should be able to mod what ever you want and if you dont pass smog you dont then you have to revert to stock. But if you mod and pass smog but dont have the stupid stickers thats just dumb...

Bikes pollute way more than cars. Motorcycle fuel, exhaust and emmissions systems aren't nearly as sophisticated.

Good to know, I had no idea. Figured smaller machine = less pollution

But how much of the _overall_ pollution would this prevent? Are there that many motorcycles ridden that many miles in California that it's a significant amount of the total pollution?

However the number on the road is so small that it is not significant. If all motorcycle pollutions were on a graph the length of a football field, the last six inches would be street bikes, the remainder off road.

Yes, the emmissions generated by motorcycles is a fraction of a percent of total vehicle emmissions. One of the reasons why red stickers for off-road bikes and not being able to convert off-road bike to street legal is ridiculous.
