Glad ta hear I said something of interest. Seriously, they don't have emissions tests for bikes in NJ, but we did do one at my friends service station for laughs and giggles to shut-up a very 'green' asshole acquaintance (not friend) of mine. The difference between stock and 'no cat' were surprisingly negligible, and would definitely go 'un-noticed' by any inspection. I posted the results some time ago, only to see them lost when we had the 'big crash'. Maybe I can still dig 'em up and re-post 'em. My current 'can' has a removable baffle (as most do) to prevent any deep investigation , and so I'm not sweat'n my lost 'cat' in any way (and I'm certainly not missing the heat either). Further more, seeing that the 'cat' is in the OEM can.....who's gonna know? Anyway.........I have my friend with the service station do the inspection (as he's done for the required "state certification" of all the customs I've built in the past) AND, don't forget how bad Jesse James made the "People's State of California" look when he ran the EPA tests on his customs vs. an OEM 'green' model ( also known as the "AL GORE Big Twin" ) 2t

We haven't got that far yet in CA, but it's only a matter of time.
