Emissions legal Husaberg

Brett, Jedi or parts guy:

Any chance that sometime in near future (05 model would be nice ) Husabergs would be California emissions street legal? Since they are already Green Sticker legal it seems that it would not be too dificult to get a CARB street legal emissions label. If that were the case then Husabergs would be the only bikes that currently could be Dual Sported under the new California law regarding the road registering of off road motorcycles. This could be a huge marketing advantage!

They wouldn't need to be "street legal" out of the box only "Street emissions legal". The owner would still be required to affix the proper lighting, horn etc.

The way I see it Husaberg and BMG would clean up in this niche market as no other product of this kind exists. Unless you include a DRZ and a few others which don't really come close.

Hi Guys,

I purchased a 04 550 from Dan Blum of Motoxotica and just finished prepping it for Dual Sport riding. Its plated for the street, and does not need a Green sticker for the dirt.

I did not have any trouble installing the new 05 type of right side header on it. It fit right on using the red silicone sealant and a rubber mallet, with a little patience.

Here is a picture of it:

So what was the trick to getting it plated?

Fill out the original registration request form at the dealer as you normally would do for a street bike.

Write in MC instead of TRBK on the original registration request form and ask for and pay for normal street bike registration. DO NOT ask for or pay for an Off Road registration or sticker.

Prep it for legal street use in the state you live in.

Good Luck, sometimes this doesn't work.

I just ordered an 05 Fe450. We will see what happens when the paperwork gets done. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and sweating bullets!

Joe,

Glad to see that you got your right side header to fit without mods.

Bike looks great.

Probably not.
There is a big difference between a bike owner being able to manipulate the system in order to get a plate and an importer homologating bikes for street use. In addition to the six hour WOT test, there is a 9600 mile road test requirement, with emissions tests every 2400 miles. My recommendation would be to go buy a bike from Dan

Cheers,

Brett Saunders

Dear friends,
A nation wide and far more stringent emissions act is taking effect in 2006. Big change is on the horizon regarding all internal combustion engines.

Regarding "Clean" motorcycles:
May I suggest you strap in as the ride is about to get bumpy.

Sincerely,
Dale

Sincerely,
Dale

Hi Dale,

This emissions issue has always been somewhat a mystery to me!If it is well documented that an IC engine needs a specific ratio of fuel to air to run correctly how it it possible to radically change the % of emissions produced by a engine?I realize that more efficient combustion chamber designs and modified fuels can realize incremental gains but where can big changes ever come from?I never could understand the common practise of pumping air in the exhaust to get better readings, how does that change anything and a catalytic converter is heavy, expensive and difficult to dispose of,and only partly effective, even
when new.

Since most countrys in the world could care less ,sometimes it seems that it is all for nothing anyway.Care to predict the future!...nsman

Hi Nsman,
I have an extensive IC emissions background. I will be happy to put together a brief post regarding the issue.

Sincerely,
Dale

Ps
It may be a few days as I am behind on most everything.
