Question Yamaha question

I just recently picked up a 1986 FZ600 and noticed that as with many other Yamaha's there is a FZ600S and a FZ600S CA. Can someone tell me what the "CA" stand for.... I'm guessing California or Canada??

I need to order some new manifold boots for the carbs and there are different part numbers for both.

Yes, I'd assume it would be CA=California as my Seca II has the same two designations, one model for ca and another for the rest of us. Most likely for the emissions systems, I'd imagine.

The CA suffix does indeed signify that your bike has the California mandated emissions systems. There will be carb vent hoses, an evaporative emissions canister, and probably a few other differences that I'm not certain of. Whether or not you want to keep it CA compliant is entirely up to you.
