California Legal Alert!

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 -

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 April. 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 discouring 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, becasue 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.

(*Note: We don't know where in the hell they got this big number of 3% - possibly based on the number of car versus motorcycle registrations in California? But as you know almost no one rides their motorcycle to work during the week - everyone drives a car.

This week I drove my car down the I-405 in greater Los Angeles from my home in the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach and back, a 2.5 hour drive, some 90 miles and back in heavy traffic. During the trip I encountered probably 250,000 automobiles or more in both directions on the freeway, and only 6 motorcyclists! In rural areas it's probably even less:.

That percentage equates to just 0.00002% of bikes driven in greater Los Angeles
during the weekday
compared to cars!!!

Not the 3% as the legislators claim. As a motorcycle enthusiast I own 6 registered motorcycles, but like most of us I generally only ride one of them for recreation, usually on Sundays - that's just 4 times a month, and usually under 50 miles per ride. - Editor)

• A smog check program for motorcycles will discourage a new motorcycle purchase and encourage infrequent useage 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. Alen Lowenthel (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 Calderon 916-327-8755 fax 916-651-4030 ph Lou Correa 916-323-2323 fax 916-651-4034 ph Dean Florez 916-327-5989 fax 916-651-4016 ph Gloria Negrete McLeod 916-445-0128 fax 916-651-4032 ph Alex Padilla 916-324-6645 fax 916-651-4020 ph Tim Darrell Steinberg 916-323-2263 fax 916-651-4006 ph Pat Wiggins 916-323-6958 fax 916-651-4002 ph Rod Wright 916-445-3712 fax 916-651-4025 ph Leyland Yee 916-327-2186 fax 916-651-4008 ph

You can find your own State Senator by: 1. Accessing the state senate website at : 2.Click on District Maps. 3. Then click on Your Senator. 4. Enter your street and city address and zip.

S&S® Cycle announces TÜV approval of a carbureted V-Series engine to EURO III noise and exhaust emission standards.
May 12th 2009 - S&S Cycle continues to strive to offer more Proven Performance products that meet today’s increasing emissions standards. Being added to S&S’ current list of emissions certified engines is the TÜV approved S&S V113. The V113 is a carbureted 113 cubic inch V-Series engine that has been approved by the TÜV to meet the current EURO III noise and exhaust emission standards. Approval of the V113 offers European custom bike builders the opportunity to build custom motorcycles containing a sought after V-Twin power plant while still being able to register their creations.

Director of Business Development Michael Scaletta comments “We are very pleased about achieving EURO III certification for our engines. Not only does it demonstrate the sophistication of our technology, but also highlights our commitment to protecting the environment by producing emissions compliant high performance products – something we have been doing since the first S&S 50 state legal engines appeared in our catalog in 1998.”

The V113 will be offered in natural, wrinkle black powder coat, and polished finishes. Each engine will include an S&S IST ignition system, Super G carburetor, Teardrop® air cleaner, and the necessary TÜV documentation for the engine. In order to retain compliancy, the V113 is furnished complete and assembled by S&S engine builders before being shipped. Installation of these engines will require an exhaust system containing catalysts and secondary air injection. A notice is included with the engine with the details of where these components can be sourced.

The engine part numbers are 106-4893 with natural finish, 106-4894 with wrinkle black powder coat finish, and 106-4895 with polished finish. These engines will be available starting March 23, 2009

In addition to the V113, S&S is currently working towards receiving approval on the carbureted V96 and V124 engines to meet EURO III noise and exhaust emissions standards. S&S is hoping to have these engines available to our customers by year’s end.

S&S Cycle has been a leading manufacturer of performance engines and replacement parts for v-twin motorcycles for over 50 years. The company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities are based in Viola, Wisconsin. More information can be found at .

S&S Engines Now Certified to Meet California Emissions Standards
April 24th - S&S Cycle of LaCrosse and Viola, Wisconsin has received executive orders from the California Air Recourses Board (CARB), which allows S&S to sell engines for “new build” custom bikes in the State of California.

The engines covered by the executive orders are the S&S V100C, V113C, V124C and X117C. The V100C, V113C, and V124C are carbureted engines with displacements of 100, 113, and 124 cubic inches respectively. The X117C is S&S Cycle’s proprietary fuel injected 56° X-Wedge™ engine with a displacement of 117 cubic inches. Again, all of these engines are intended for “new build” custom motorcycles.

The V-Series engines are compatible with 1984-’99 style custom chassis designed for Harley-Davidson® Evolution® big twin engines, and are available in natural, wrinkle black powder coat and polished finishes. The X-Wedge engine requires a specially designed chassis to accommodate the X-Wedge engine mounts. The X117C is available in silver or wrinkle black powder coat, and polished finishes.

S&S CA engines are similar to the existing S&S 49-State EPA engines, but were made compliant with California evaporative emissions requirements with the addition of a carbon canister, a vapor valve, an evaporative hose routing label, and a sealed air cleaner assembly on the carbureted models. Additional restrictions have also been applied to the maximum capacity of the fuel tank and the distance between the fuel tank and engine.

S&S CA engines are available only through qualified S&S dealers. To become qualified, a dealer is required to pass a simple on-line class and test. This is to ensure that the selling dealer is familiar with the special requirements for compliance. Once these requirements have been met for a particular engine, S&S will issue a Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin (MSO) for the engine. At that time, the motorcycle will be deemed certified, and the owner will be able obtain a title, and registration. The bike can then be offered for sale, sold, or ridden with no mileage or use restrictions.

It should be noted that these engines cannot legally be used to replace the engine in a previously registered vehicle. Looking ahead, S&S is currently working toward approval of one or more replacement engines for 1984-’99 Harley-Davidson big twin motorcycles originally equipped with Evolution engines. Executive orders approving replacement engines are expected sometime before the end of the year. This will allow S&S Cycle to provide owners of older Harley-Davidson motorcycles with an emissions legal performance upgrade and an alternative to rebuilding a worn stock engine.

S&S Cycle has been a leading manufacturer of performance engines and replacement parts for v-twin motorcycles for over 50 years. The company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities are based in Viola, Wisconsin. More information can be found at
