California Motorcycle Smog Test Bill Passes Out Of Committee-- We Need Your

Help! Write Fax or Call your State Senator NOW!!-- HELP GUYS! - As Goes

California, So Goes the rest of America -"FACT"

ACT NOW or NO MORE AFTER MARKET

CARBURETORS, EXHAUST SYSTEMS, RECALIBRATE D FUEL INJECTION, CUSTOM BIKES AND

ENGINE PARTS, CHARCOAL CANISTER REMOVAL, etc......

 

Sacramento, CA, Wed, April 22nd - SB 435 has passed out of the California

Senate Transportation & Housing Committee and is expected to be on the

California Senate Floor before the end of the year. This measure calls for smog

checks, beginning in 2012 for motorcycles 2000 model year and later for

owners to be able to re-register them. The California Motorcycle Dealers

Assn. has concluded that there is not enough benefit and that there is the

potential for discouraging potential owners. The author of the bill claims

that including motorcycle in the smog check program will eliminate 5.2

tons of smog daily. That is a tiny amount compared with the 1,406 tons of

smog produced every day from all mobile sources. This is not something any

motorcyclist can ignore. Your sport will be seriously affected by this bill.

 

. Motorcycles do not contribute enough pollution to warrant being included

in a smog check program

. Motorcycle, because of their low mileage usage and a much higher gas

mileage than cars or trucks, represent less than 3%* of the total for all

mobile source emissions.

. The cost to implement and conduct a motorcycle smog check program will

cost California more than the value of the emissions it's estimated to save.

 

 

. A smog check program for motorcycles will discourage a new motorcycle

purchase and encourage infrequent usage owners to stop using them.

. Motorcycle smog checks were eliminated in one Arizona county when the

program did not reduce emissions enough. *If motorcycles have to be returned

to stock condition, finding original parts for older bikes will be

impossible because historically, not enough spare parts were made.

 

We need to do two things IMMEDIATELY:

1). Contact the CA State Department of

Transportation Senators who wrote this Bill: Sen. Allen Lowenthal (Chair) ,

Fax 916 327 9113 / Ph (916) 651-4027 Sen Robert Huff (Vice Chair) , fax 916

324 0922 / Ph (916) 651-4027 Sen. Fran Pauley, Fax (916) 324-4823 / Ph (916)

651-4023

 

2). Find out who your state Senator is. Then fax, call or write them asking

for a "NO" vote on SB 435. 2. Also contact the below nine Senators: Ron

State of California is out of control, I got my DMV renewal on my 2005 GMC 2500 truck and it's close to 600 bucks. Damn I didn't even pay that much when I bought it new?
