To my knowledge, Maricopa county AZ is the ONLY place that currently emissions tests motorcycles, and that is soon to be a thing of the past. As for me, I don't give a rats ass what's legal and whats not as far as emissions crap goes, nor do I see why anyone else would either. As far as I am concerned, the EPA can stick it where the sun don't shine. I have a 1964 Ford Fairlane, which is exempt from emissions testing due to it's age (there were no emissions standards back then) and a 1972 Ford Pinto which is exempt because I have it registered to a legal address I have in another county. When motorcycle testing comes to an end, I'll be free and clear. No more of that crap for me.
Here's the official EPA site on it ( http://www.azdeq.gov/environ/air/vei/motor.html
) I check it every couple of days. I seriously doubt my '85 Goldwing will pass emissions (it's fuel injected and not adjustable) and it's registration expires in 3 months. If this BS is still around at that time, I'll register it to the same address as the Pinto is registered to.
I suggest you jet your bike any way you want, and if you want an aftermarket exhaust, go for it. It is after all YOUR
