I am new to bikes so for those who are not this might be a stupid question. Are most after market pipes "street legal" meaning they meet the EPA noise standard or not? I am looking for a set of black pipes. Does anyone know where i can find them and they be street legal. I appreciate any and all feedback guys before I go out and add these pipes. Thanks

Sorry Larry, but I don't think any after market exhaust pipes meet EPA noise standards...

In fact, the Fury pipes have a catalytic converter... and that I am certain NO after market pipes have...

Thank you Sir! This is why I joined this forum and I appreciate it very much. You just saved me a lot of money and I am sure headaches as I plan to go cross country!

That shouldn't matter as long as it's legit in your state. It would be like a Jacked up Truck from Texas getting a lift violation (ticket) since they are driving through California. You just have to meet regulations in your state, then ride cross country ;)

I can confirm this too. I was stationed in California with a vehicle registered in Florida. I never had to meet emissions requirements there, or get anything checked by California. As long as you meet the requirements for the state the bike is registered in, you are good to go anywhere in the country.

Thanks for the input folks. I checked the laws and I am good to go. I am from SC and the question arose because of a comment concerning Myrtle Beach. Seems they have adopted ordinances to discourage "Bike Weeks" and this only applies to that town . FYI you can find the State laws for each state at the AMA site. Here is SC : South Carolina state motorcycle laws Looks like they do each state. Never been to Myrtle and don't plan on it so Fuggin is getting a call! Lots of other things I want to see other than an overcrowded retirement beach community that don't like bikes! Thanks again.

Hey larry, where in SC are you located? Im in NC around Shelby and Morganton. I had a couple of friends visit North and South Myrtle for the spring rally (they avoided city limits) and had a ball.

Also if you are looking for a super good rally, visit Cheerokee NC in April 2010. One of the best rallies around. Check it out The Official Cherokee Survivors Motorcycle Rally & Concert We will be up there.

Hi Hayne,
I am just across the GA line in Clarks Hill, SC. Thanks for the info and I will try and make it! Is there camping nearby?

Yes, lots of camping. If you decide to go call in advance for reservations. The rally is so big, it covers about 15 miles in surrounding areas. That just means you dont have to be right in the center to see it all. Lots of motel/hotel biker friendly places too. All types of bikes welcome! We stay in Maggie Valley and its about 12 miles from the actually rally but you cant tell your 12 miles away from it...bikes everywhere.
