If they are stock, and have not been modified, then they are legal. The EPA assures that all OEM equipment adheres to applicable laws.

If the baffles have been removed, then they are no longer stock.

If I were you, I'd familiarize myself with the location of the EPA stamp on your exhaust, as well as the OEM stamp if there is one. Be ready to point it out to your friendly neighborhood police, as needed.

Hey guys - I am going to San Diego from Today-Wed and considering renting a sports-touring from eagle riders near the airport. I land today around noon and wanted to know there are any good scenic routes with little traffic that I can take for a 2-3 hour ride between 1-6pm, and/or early mornings between 5-8am. Thanks -

Probably best to ask in the West forum. Locals know all of the good roads.

+1 on asking in the proper regional forum.

That being said, California has quite a lot of nice roads.

Hey! Welcome back!

Aren't you in Idaho, or someshit? How about some damn pictures for your hot and sweaty NYC friends, who are trapped in cubicle offices?

I think that under the letter of the law your aftermarket exhaust would probably be illegal and you could be ticketed for it if somebody wanted to find something to ticket you for. But if it's not loud enough to draw attention on its own and you don't get pulled over for some other reason you might get by. Bottom line: no guarantees.

From the NYS


11. No person shall operate a motorcycle on any highway which is: (1) not equipped with a muffler to prevent excessive or unusual noise; (2) equipped with a muffler from which the baffle plates, screens or other original internal parts have been removed or altered; (3) equipped with an exhaust device without internal baffles, known as "straight pipes"; or (4) equipped with an exhaust system that has been modified in a manner that will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of such vehicle above that emitted by the exhaust system originally installed on the vehicle. 12. No person shall operate a motorcycle on any highway which is equipped with an exhaust device that is intentionally designed to allow for the internal baffling to be fully or partially removed or interchangeable. This subdivision shall not apply to a motorcycle manufactured or assembled prior to nineteen hundred seventy-nine or a motorcycle registered as a limited use vehicle or an all terrain vehicle pursuant to article forty-eight-A or forty-eight-B of this chapter. 13. A violation of any of the provisions of this section shall be punishable by a fine not exceeding one hundred dollars or by imprisonment for not exceeding thirty days, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

Speed Cameras

Heads up guys - this article was in the 6/23 edition of the Times but I didn't catch it until today.

Executive summary: NY State legislature gave the city the nod to install speed cameras "near" schools. The current plan is a 5-year pilot program to install 20 speed cameras near schools. If you get nabbed, it's a $50 fine.

Link to article:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/23/ny...d-cameras.html

No word yet on the exact locations of the cameras. Perhaps this should be the subject of the Tag-O-Rama until we find them all?

You can't spit in NYC without hitting some kind of school, so I'm sure these cameras will be pretty much everywhere with vague language like 'near schools'.

Thanks for posting that. I'll mention that NYC also has a law which says that if your exhaust is plainly audible for 200' you are in violation.

But I've never heard of it being enforced.

YMMV.

EDIT: Might as well post the law...

New York City Administrative Code(NEW)

§ 24-236 Motor vehicles. (a) Motor vehicles, other than motorcycles,
with a maximum gross weight of 10,000 lbs. or less. No person shall
cause or permit any motor vehicle, other than a motorcycle, with a
maximum gross weight of 10,000 lbs. or less to operate on a public
right-of-way where the muffler or exhaust generates a sound that is
plainly audible to another individual at a distance of 150 feet or more
from the motor vehicle.
(b) Motorcycles. No person shall cause or permit any motorcycle to
operate on a public right-of-way where the muffler or exhaust generates
a sound that is plainly audible to another individual at a distance of
200 feet or more from the motorcycle.
