Got any facts to back up that statement? CA emission controls on bikes are all about containing fuel tank vapors and keeping the fuel system closed to evaporation. That's why it's called EEC, Evaporative Emission Controls. Most the AFRs are federal standards.

You don't care about what you do, even if it affects others? How typical for the pathetic USA today. No way we last another century, and I'm glad I'll not see the end. Good luck. It was a good run, but all empires fall, we'll just fall much faster.

LOL? Seriously? Are you out of high school yet?

Dude, no worries. Just learning here. Not a total newb to sportys. Just building a blaster. Friend of mine said just ride it and quit worrying about her and quit spending money. I've got the big spending out of the way till I can figure out a decent quarter fairing and matching the paint. Any input on your suggestions are welcomed.

It's your bike, I'm not worried, either. Do whatever you want.

I will. Do you have anything else to add? Besides some BS about emission standards for Kali than so goes the world?

I'd suggest talking to Aaron, or the folks that built the tuner, some more. This thread has been clouded over by politics apparently, as is becoming more common.........

Yup, Going to reach out Khromewerks and Aaron tomorrow along with Tmax. There is a solution to every problem. Mine aren't earth shattering. Just got to study more. Good input here most of the time.

Spoken like a true bleeding heart. So my motor tuned properly to run properly is a concern to you how again?
Sorry. Spin it however you want and go ahead and run your EPA and CARB compliant bike if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.
I use to be more like you. Then I grew up. I've watched this left wing, bleeding heart crap destroy our country and it's economy for over half a century. Driven everything overseas, and made us dependant on foreign oil when we have our own but can't drill for it. With the latest lefty virus driving us into oblivion, I wouldnt doubt we see the epa dismantled and many more of it's rules reversed to dig out from the hole it's helped put us in.
Least I sure hope so. But this is getting political because that's exactly what it is. So you have a good day, John.
