The California Air Resources Board approved S&S Cycle to sell engines for new build custom bikes in California, reported S&S Cycle.
The engines covered by the executive orders are the S V100C, V113C, V124C and X117C. All of these engines are intended for “new build” custom motorcycles.
The engines are similar to the existing S&S Cycle 49-state Environmental Protection Agency engines, but were made compliant with California evaporative emissions requirements with the addition of a carbon canister, a vapor valve, an evaporative hose routing label and a sealed air cleaner assembly on the carbureted models. Additional restrictions also have been applied to the maximum capacity of the fuel tank and the distance between the fuel tank and engine.
