    Default Ticket for Aftermarket Exhaust

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: IL

    I got a ticket violation code 9-76-140(a)(2)

    It says that no motorcycle should have no muffler or straight pipes.

    the cop told me that I can't have any aftermarket exhaust what so ever. Even though I bought a Legal Exhaust system for my motorcycle.

    Is it true that i cannot have any aftermarket exhaust on a motorcycle. And my motorcycle is way below the max. DB under 35 and over 35 which is 50-53 and 56 DB respectively. ( i think)

    thanks

    I believe (but do not know for sure) that you are talking about a Chicago municipal violation, not an Illinois violation.

    If that is correct, start your research here:

    It would be a violation in California although I've never, ever heard of it being enforced. If it were, it would be an absolute nightmare for the HD guys since about 99% of them have modified exhausts and air cleaners and have no access to the original parts.

    I used to have 2 Harleys and modified them both but I saved all the parts.

    Well, the cop told me it was a STATE law. Well in any sense I appreciate the help. I guess i'll have to battle it out in court and see what the judge says.
