Re: out of state bike

I don't think the bike needs to have California emissions to be licensed in California. I moved to CA and titled a bike there that I bought new in NM. There were no issues.

It does if the vehicle has less than 7,500 miles on it.

Re: out of state bike

There's an emissions label on top of the airbox that will tell you if it's CA legal, along with the title.. If it doesn't and the vehicle is "new" (has less than 7500 miles) it's not legal in CA.

There are some exceptions (like, if you by a non-CA emissions certified vehicle which was purchased to replace a vehicle that was stolen when you were outside of CA) but in general, a new (which means less than 7500 miles) vehicle, including motorcycles, will need to have CA emissions to be legal here.

Re: out of state bike

OK i found the label it is on the rear fender under the seat but it only says it meets federal emissions and doesn't say California can i just buy a used fender with the sticker or do they check something else?

Re: out of state bike

Yes - they check something else.. The title and VIN. Does the sticker indicate if it's legal in all 50 states? (In 2010, the EPA standards catch up to California's, so, some bikes are already being built to be sold in all states.) If it does, it's CA legal..
