A bill was wending its way through the California legislature that would mandate regular emissions testing for motorcycles in the state. Senate Bill 435 proposed to make emissions testing mandatory for motorcycles, on the same basis as cars.
But, the legislature has dropped hearings on it for the 2009 session. it’s a two-year bill, which means it’s still not dead, and can be resurrected in the 2010 session. But for now, motorcycle smog checks have been tabled in California.
