umm yes. you can do pretty much anything as long as it doesnt have anything to do with the VIN, registration, or anything like that(legal paperwork related). If that makes sense. That's to ride it off road.

Nope. There is no smog check, no catalytic converters. The only regulation on smog for offroad bikes is if it has a red sticker registration in California. From 2003 up to now, motocross/competition bikes in Cali are red sticker because of this. But in 2002, they are all green which meens they can be ridden anytime, anywhere in designated riding areas. On these bikes, the exhaust can be changed, re-jetted, and it's still green sticker legal. There is no regulations on what you can do to them, smog wise. But one thing you need to watch for in the exhaust is noise, but thats it.

Does that help? :ride::thumbsup:
