I can't believe I did not know that. Thread answered, I guess police officers really don't care considering the fact that it seems like everyone changes those parts.Why wonder if the exhaust is legal?
They're aftermarket cans so technically they're not legal, along with the turn signals.
Generally they don't care. But if one ever did, you can get tickets for all of it. Basically its illegal to alter any of the equipment on motorcycles. Turn signals and exhausts are not DOT approved.I can't believe I did not know that.

Matter of enforcement. The matter of legality is not the same as say having no insurance. Every exhaust manufactured has the words "For offroad use only" stamped somewhere on the package and/or paperwork.Wow I didn't know this. Then how do dealerships sell bikes with aftermarket exhausts and still get them registered?
You have just run into officers who didn't feel like busting your balls. License plates must be horizontal, have a it lit when it is dark, and be able to be seen equally from both sides.Also, to my knowledge there's nothing illegal about that plate...
I've been ridding with the side/swingarm mount for over a year now and plenty of LEO have taken rather close looks at my bike and never mentioned anything about it...
*shrugs* maybe its a state to state sort of thing.
