#05NR31 - MRF Releases EPA For The Layman - Second Revision

EPA officials recently informed the Motorcycle Riders Foundation of a new interpretation of the "Control of Emissions From Highway Motorcycles" document.

The latest document contains the new 2006 Emissions Regulations for Highway Motorcycles and the new interpretation includes the effective date of two essential provisions in the document.

We have been notified that the effective date for the "one per lifetime" EPA exempt kit motorcycle and the provision for a shop to build 24 EPA exempt custom motorcycles per year was actually March 15, 2004, not January 1, 2006 as originally verified by EPA.

The "EPA for the Layman" paper on the MRF website has been updated to reflect the EPA’s changes and can be found at http://www.mrf.org/pdf/EPA-for-the-layman-rev2.pdf
