If we're going to post a list of rules, we might as well post the official rules straight from the California Highway Patrol:

Quote:
Motorcyclists who are competent enough riders to lane split, should follow these general guidelines if choosing to lane split:
  1. Travel at a speed that is no more than 10 MPH faster than other traffic danger increases at higher speed differentials.
  2. It is not advisable to lane split when traffic flow is at 30 mph or faster danger increases as overall speed increases.
  3. Typically, it is more desirable to split between the #1 and #2 lanes than between other lanes.
  4. Consider the total environment in which you are splitting, including the width of the lanes, size of surrounding vehicles, as well as roadway, weather, and lighting conditions.
  5. Be alert and anticipate possible movements by other road users.
