LETTER FROM JUDD HOLLIFIELD, OWNER & CEO
Rinehart Racing is proud to offer official 50 state certification of both EPA and CARB emissions compliance for certain touring model slip on mufflers.
In an effort to define what qualifies as emissions compliant exhaust products for motorcycles, the EPA has recently announced that aftermarket parts which meet the legal requirements of the Air Resources Board of the State of California (“CARB”) as replacement parts are also emissions compliant under federal regulation.
Rinehart Racing has undergone extensive testing in an independent emissions laboratory facility which is recognized by the State of California and the EPA, and test results affirmatively conclude that installation of 4” Slip On Mufflers & MotoPro45 Slip On Mufflers for Touring models, and 4.5” Slip On Mufflers for the 2018-later Fat Bob model which do not tamper with the OEM catalytic converter qualify as a replacement part as defined by CARB, and thus are legal for sale and installation in all 50 states in accordance with California state law and US Federal law as prescribed by EPA regulation. These part numbers and part descriptions are as listed on the attached schedule and apply to the following model years:
FL Touring Models:
Model year 1995-2005 (carbureted)
Model year 1995-2005 (fuel injected)
Model year 2007-2018
CVO model year 2000-2005, 2009-2018
California Touring Models:
Model year 1995-2003
Model year 2007
Model year 2009-2018
CVO model year 2000-2003, 2009-2018
Softail Fat Bob model:
Model year 2018
In short, dealers now have the assurance, by and through this certification, that they can sell and install certain Rinehart exhaust products without fear of penalty or liability with the EPA or CARB. Moreover, Rinehart Racing is proud to offer you more certified EPA & CARB compliant part numbers than any other aftermarket exhaust manufacturer. Rest assured, we will continue to develop additional compliant product, as well.
We recognize that the sale and installation of aftermarket exhaust represents a significant and needed source of revenue for your dealership. In that regard, we want to establish the highest level of confidence in our product and equip your dealership with the tools to increase profitability without fear of penalty as a result of federal or state regulation.
Thank you for being a committed member of the Rinehart family. If you have any questions relating to these topics, or if we can do anything to help support you and your staff, please do not hesitate to contact your personal customer service representative, road rep, or even me. I wish you the very best as we look forward to a new season ahead of us
