Emissions & Shipping (CA)

My 2002 K1200RS is "For Sale"...(I'm in NY) (so I can dance like this... )
I received a call from a gentleman in CA...he asked if the bike would satisfy CA emissions requirements. ???
I have no idea, I also didn't think that different states had different requirements.

Does anyone know??

He also asked if I had any idea what it would cost to ship it back to CA. I recommended riding this puppy home.

If anyone knows a thing or 2 about shipping prices...I'd appreciate it!

Thank you all in advance.

(and do not worry, I wil not fall prey to a shipping/moneygram scam) :wtf

-Yes...I know I overdid it with the smilies.

Ca. emissions

I believe that all the newer bikes are "50 state legal" so it should not be a problem UNLESS you have modified some part of the exhaust system. A quick look at the exhaust system should show a large bulge towards the middle of the pipe. If it is there, then it should be OK. JMHO someone else may know for a fact.

The emission regulations should be the same as bringing in a used out-of-state car to Ca..
If it has over 6,000mi. there is no emission regulation problems. He can check on-line with Ca. DMV.
I also agree with Larry. If the exhaust has been tampered with, he will be buying a new one if the bike has to be inspected by the CHP prior to registration.

Another issue...if the bike has less than 7500 miles, the DMV here will consider it a new bike purchased out-of-state and notifiy the Franchise Tax Board that taxes are due.

Ya, I know 7500 miles on a BMW that "young" is highly unlikely...but be forwarned
