I've been watching the griping on the rules, but I tried to puzzle
through them myself to see if my 2003 naked is legal, and I can't really
9.1.2k - can't modify lighting
9.1.13 - you can remove the brake light
9.1.35d - can remove tail light assembly
9.1.35e - can remove headlight glass, shell
Ok, so what's the purpose of 9.1.2k? Can I take off all the lights, or
9.1.18 - handlebar type may be changed but the mounting method may not
I have Woodcraft clip-ons. The original SV had bars. I can't use bars
with a fairing. The SVS has clip-ons though.
9.1.26 - aftermarket fairings may not be fitted to bikes not originally
equipped with a fairing.
My bike was a SV. The SVS has a fairing, but no bellypan. I have a
Cheetah full fairing on my bike. What I'm reading here implies to me
that its illegal.
Just to further complicate things, the 2006-and-newer section says:
9.2.5 The following emissions equipment may be removed....
It doesn't say that anywhere in 9.1.x that I can see, though. I've
taken out the emissions stuff, did that make me illegal?
Also, what's the current opinion on a good DOT tire setup? I have
slicks on right now, so I guess those will have to go... :-/
Thanks for any suggestions,
