thanks for your responses! Maybe you can help me out with something that I was told regarding this on Saturday. Essentially, last year a new law was passed by CARB (the California Air Resources Board), that places more stringent regulations on motorcycle exhausts. I was told that I am pretty much out of luck if I want to have after-market pipes installed in-state, as a cursory search of the major pipe manufacturer catalogs did not show any CARB certified pipes for my bike.
Does this mean that I need to go out of state, say to Nevada or Arizona, if I decide that I really want after-market pipes?
Thank you all for your assistance,
