No SA ?

I always found it interesting that:

1) Europe doesn't require spark arrestors on motor vehicle exhausts for a reason

2) While you're on your U.S. spark arrestor required dirt bike, say at Rampart, street bikes, cars, trucks, snowmobiles, etc can go right by you on Rampart Range Road without spark arrestors being required.

3) Always wondered how a hot particle can find it's way out of a 2T expansion chamber that's coated inside with oily gooey residue.

4) Used to watch night time flat trackers racing with straight pipes and never saw any hot sparks coming out their pipes

Oh, and the rack worked well too. Bolts didn't vibrate loose or anything.

Bureaucratic work at it's finest.

The only reason I see for the "markings" would be what my ranger buddy showed me. So they can look it up in their phone book size book on manufactures and what have you. Note like all things the book is not always up to date so thus they still can check and make sure you are compliant.
