Re: Show off your exhaust!

Just got word from Remus USA that there was an EPA raid on their facility last week (in Kaleefornia) and they brought the hammer down on them..

When he came into office, Trump (as promised) removed a Federal regulation (put in place by Obama which banned sales of most aftermarket motorcycle exhaust kits) and for the last 2 years.. all has been well with the world.. Apparently that didn't sit well with the plastic straw banning clown-show at the helm so they made an end run around the president's agenda and just passed a new Kaleefornia state bill banning the sale of any exhaust that eliminates the cat... Sheesh..

Basically.. this means that about 40% of their product line is now verboten to the public including all systems for the K1300S, K1200S, K1200R, K1300R, K1300GT, and late K1200GT.

That being said... If anyone is looking for a kit for these bikes, I have another source for them outside the USA that delivers inside a week...

Lastly.. I spoke with the owner of the company and he's pretty much fed up with the craziness and thinking about packing up and leaving Kali for a state more business friendly.. like North Carolina.

Re: Show off your exhaust!

typical BS from these left-wing Pelosi loving ding-bats.
i hope they (Remus) move out.
don't spend money in a state that hates capitalism.

Re: Show off your exhaust!

Just crazy - maybe all those systems were going on race bikes - just saying. California is the leading state when it comes to saving the planet and MA is not that far behind.
