SB 435 exhaust system bill ahhhhhh


Recommended Posts

the bill has been amended a bit

SB 435, as amended, Pavley. Vehicles: pollution control devices.

(1) Existing federal regulations require a motorcycle manufactured

on and after January 1, 1983, and exhaust emission systems for those

motorcycles, to meet specified noise emissions standards and require

that a label be affixed onto the motorcycle or exhaust emission

system indicating that the motorcycle or exhaust emission system

meets the noise emissions standards.

This bill would make it a crime for a person to park, use, or

operate a motorcycle, registered in the state, that is manufactured

on and after January 1, 2011 or a motorcycle, registered in the

state, with aftermarket exhaust system equipment that is manufactured

on or after January 1, 2011, that does not have the above label, and

would make a violation of this provision punishable by a specified

fine, thereby imposing a state mandated local program by creating a

new crime. The bill would require the person to whom a notice to

appear is issued, or against whom a complaint is filed, for the above

violation, to provide proof of correction. The bill would

authorize a court to dismiss the penalty imposed for a first

violation if the person produces proof of correction to the

satisfaction of the court.

(2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse

local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the

state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that

reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this

act for a specified reason.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.

State-mandated local program: yes.

Looks like it would only affect motorcycles manufactured after January 1st, 2011. Am I reading this right?

Also the fine dropped to $50 for first offense from $300

:banana: hmmm i would like to see one of these labels..... It may be lucrative to replicate and sell to the mrd owners lol....

you mean anybody that has any aftermarket perf. exhaust because they are all louder than this law allows , I dont know why the SSW/MRD pipe has earned the loudest pipe rep. , it isnt any louder than the YOSH TI or a couple other after market pipes , DRZ's arent that loud to start with , they are alot quieter compared to MX bikes , did you know that your 450R is way louder at full throttle than a DRZ with a SSW/MRD

This sounds very much like our Australian Design Rules ( ADR`s ) . But unlike in your country , our police rarely enforce them . :banana:

it is rare .. on a rare occasion a friend of mine who runs around on a hog actually got busted , but man that thing is loud .

the thing is there are a million hogs around , this was a rare occasion
