Hello group. I am picking up my first AT this Sat in Oregon. Being a California resident I am concerned about the restrictions with emissions. It’s a brand new 2020 DCT. Can someone please let me know where the emissions sticker is on this bike? thank you.

Hey @Kcboom10 - can't comment on state emission validation for a particular vehicle, but if it is brand new is that still an issue in the continental USA?

Nevertheless, welcome to the Forum and congratulations on your new purchase.

The emission sticker is located under the seat. I believe it will state "This vehicle conforms to U.S. EPA and State of California regulations applicable to 2020 model year new motorcycles."

At least mine does, with the exception of it saying 2019 on mine :)

Welcome!

The only restrictions I've run into when bringing out of state bikes/car in.. (other than numbers matching the paperwork)
1. must have more than 7500 miles to be considered "used" in CA
2. If less than 7500 mi.. it has to have "California Emissions Compliant" sticker (which it should have anyway however you may have to pay 'new vehicle' taxes. You may also have to take the bike to a CHP office to have an inspection done. I suggest putting on the 7500 miles first.

Kc,
You won't have any problems with any emissions on that or any other new bike. EVERYTHING built, motorcycles, cars, trucks, boats, spaceships, submarines etc. in the last 20 years is all 50-state approved. CA led the emissions charge decades ago and from that point on, all states have the same requirements. Hense, any vehicle/motorcycle built, can go to any state. Each state may have their own enforcement guidelines but, the emissions are all the same.
As for the label, well, you've been told where it is.

Everything went perfect. Bikes legal licensed in California. DMV inspected the bike looking for three things. The emissions sticker with California on it. VIN and engine stamp. Super easy except writing the check. I was a little nervous from a previous bike I brought with less than 7500 miles and no CARB sticker. I was told that the VIN was now blocked and can never be registered in CA.
