I know in MA they WERE going to start the loudness testing on bikes but it never happened. Based on the states lack of $$$$, I would not be surprised it they tried it again.gsxrmike said:is a yoshimura rs 3 pipe street legal? On their website it says they are for off road use only.
The laws on improper mufflers is not written in a manner that allows loopholes like that. State law is not written to force limits on the manufactures of factory bikes or custom mufflers. State law, in regards to mufflers is written to put restrictions on the actual operation of the "muffler". Therefore, just because a bike has been customized doesnt make it exempt from the law. Just because I build a custom noise maker does'nt make it legal to make noise. Some states actually list an allotted DB range. Others simply leave the law broad, and leave it to officers descretion. The defendent would then bascially has the option to appear in court, and would have a chance to allow the judge or prosecutor to hear how loud the bike is (in the parking lot of couse).badass1000 said:He asked the same question about the choppers and found out that since it is a custom tittle their are no laws on the exhaust and noise. He is now trying to get a custom tittle for his busa.
