Note: California emissions laws prohibit the installation, sale, advertising, and on- and off-highway use of any "add-on" or "modified" emissions-related part (e.g., exhaust parts or systems) on any pollution-controlled vehicle unless either (a) the part has received an exemption from the Executive Officer ("EO") of the California Air Resources Board ("CARB") or 9b0 thew part is installed on a racing vehicle which is never used upon a highway. See California Vehicle Code 27156 and 38391; see also CCR 22202225 ("aftermarket parts" regulations). An "emissions-related part" is defined to mean "any automotive part, which affects any regulated emissions from a motor vehicle which is subject to California or federal emissions standards." 13CCR 1900(3). A "modified part" is defined to mean "any aftermarket part intended to replace an original equipment emissions-related part and which is not functionally identical to the original equipment part in all respects which in any way affect emissions, excluding a consolidated part." 13 CCR 1900(b)(14). An "add-on" is defined to mean "any aftermarket part which is not a modified part or replacement part." A "racing vehicle" is defined to mean a "competition vehicle not used on public highways." California Health & Safety Code 43001.
A "replacement part" is defined to mean "any aftermarket part intended to replace an original equipment emissions-related part and which is functionally identical to the original equipment part in all respects which in any way affect emissions." 13 CCR 1900(b)(20). Replacement parts are presumed to be legal for use of pollution controlled vehicles and do not require CARB exemptions. See 13 CCR 2221; see also CARB's "Replacement parts Guidelines - Aftermarket, Performance and Add-On parts Regulations."
In California, exhaust systems (headers or mufflers) intended for installation on non-catalyst equipped motorcycles are considered by CARB to be "replacement parts" and comply with emissions regulations enforced by CARB, provided that all emission controls originally connected to the exhaust manifold are reconnected to the exhaust system and are functioning properly. Similarly, "Slip-on" mufflers are generally legal to use in California as "replacement parts" unless the muffler being replaced contained a catalyst. Before purchasing any exhaust products, check with the vehicle manufacturer to determine whether the vehicle came originally equipped with a catalytic converter. Before purchasing any slip-on muffler products, check with the vehicle manufacturer to determine whether the O.E.M muffler contains a catalyst.
