Quick question. What if I saw a bike in another state and wanted it shipped over? I recall seeing somewhere that there could be (emission) issues when trying to purchase a bike out of state and shipping to California. Is this true? What issues might come up?
I bought mine from Texas and had it shipped here (600 for that). Had 3400miles and had it inspected at DMV, they just matched the vin and engine block numbers to pass it. But had to pay 850 to get it registered in CA!! All and all it's easy peazy
if you really want to trick them - just swap airbox covers with someone from CA. they really only look to see if your bike has the sticker saying it's 50 state approved. i pointed the carbon canister out to them and they said nope - we need to see the sticker.
