Dang dude - Im up in Northern Cali, and the cops here are cool. Most of the bike cops dont even give us any trouble - as long as you arent riding like a complete jackass, pretty much anything goes. Usually just pulled to the side and given a warning... And I have NEVER been hassled about my pipes either...Ray, I saw those were EU approved, but they are EPA also?, is that on the muffler label?. The cops out here are NAZIS with exhaust pipe issues and I need the real deal. Great looking. Yoshimura says they are only doing EPA mufflers for the "big bikes" like the ZX10R etc.
