    Default California cracking down on emissions?

    Recently ive tried buying a number of different "emissions" related parts for my bike (new air cleaner/bracket/breather bolts/exhaust pipes, carb parts) from websites like lowbrow and JP cycles, and wasnt able to purchase. Luckily TC bros didnt have that issue (yet?), but wondering if anyone else has had issues like this? Is this all going to get worse? fuck Newsom man, and i dont even care about politics, but making it real hard for us chopper guys out here in CA.

    One of the youtube harley guys said he had the same problem in one of his videos.

    He gets some items forwarded to him from another state as a workaround.

    So, it appears to be a thing?

    PS: I heard once that Jessie James got hassled out there for leaving some emissions device off his bikes and they fined the living shit out of him for it.

    He offered to do a recall to install it and they declined.. Just wanted the money and couldn't care less about the missing emissions equipment.

    Sounds like a racket.

    And everything in California causes cancer too. I bought a carb spacer made of a single piece of aluminum, and it had the stupid California cancer warning on it.

    If hot rodders and bikers fail to lobby their state governments are guaranteed to shit all over them.

    Organize and vote and make sure local politicians know about it. Eventually the hobby will be killed off because Americans are lazy. The glory days of ABATE fighting helmet laws and other bullshit were because traditional bikers ran those orgs and took no shit.

    Serious people should probably keep an eye out for free states to live in with good vehicle (no inspections) and gun laws.

    Helmet Laws.. lol.

    Kind of makes you wonder what happened to all the people chanting "My body, my choice!" Right?

    I suspect a lack of Helmets costs insurance companies a lot of money.. And they lobby for them in the background.

    Not to mention the contrarian types who can't sleep unless they're taking away some little freedom or small bit of happiness from someone, somewhere... Like it is their sole purpose for existing.

    PS: Maybe someone in the Bro section, who lives close, can forward to you?

    “The government you elect is the government you deserve.” - Thomas Jefferson

    And if you choose to elect a “government big enough to give you everything that you want [you also elect (and deserve)] a government big enough to take away everything that you have.” - Attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

    Vote accordingly.

    I wouldn't stress over it. Sure, if you get stopped and the cops want to be dicks then they can cite you for not having your bike in compliance with the vehicle code, like no emissions control system, or anything else they find, which is part of the reason I don't give cops attitude. But there's a big difference between that and say, requiring all bikes to get smog tested to register or renew registration. Last time I checked California still doesn't require bikes to get smog checks (I've been in California the past 51+ years). I just renewed my two bike registrations, and no mention of smog checks.

    Some vendors simply don't know the laws here, aren't willing to take the time to research them, won't pay a lawyer to do it for them, and just believe what they've heard. And to avoid any perceived hassle they refuse to ship to CA. I've seen the same thing over the years with ammo, gun parts, and some knives.

    Hell, Amazon wouldn't ship me oil filters. Fucking oil filters?! But I can buy the same filters at any auto parts store in the state.

    There's another thread on the same topic from last Sept titled "Pipes in Ca" if you're interested.

    California has been Libtard Central for years and years, And they just keep
    going with their Over Regulation. & over the top Control.

    Most spray paint cannot be Shipped to California, And definitely most Hotrod
    or speed equipment for automobiles & bikes.

    I even got the dreaded "Cannot be Shipped to California" recently when I was
    attempting to purchase some chipawa boots online that are made in the USA.
    Maybe the glue they uses, causes Cancer?? WTF!
    Fuckin bullshit state, run by COMMIE Lib Tard Fanatics.
    These A holes are on a quest to eventually ban all gasoline vehicles by year 2050,

    As with all things f tard, the f tards have beaten the "cancer" warning till it is just something people laugh at now.

    If it ever was a useful warning and a net plus for public safety? It ain't no more..

    It's just a lame punchline for late night comics at this point.
