    According to a news item in Cycle News issue 24:
    Comoto Holdings will have to Pay a $1.93 Million Fine. Comoto Holdings, is the parent company to Revzilla, Cycle Gear and J&P Cycles. They will pay a $1.93 million fine to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the alleged sale of non-exempted add-on/modified motorcycle parts in California.“ We take the sale of uncertified parts seriously as it can lead to significantly higher emissions that impact the health of California residents,” said CARB Executive Officer Richard Corey. “It is also unfair to the vast majority of manufacturers who comply with clean air requirements." According to a release by CARB, “Retailers and distributors must ensure the parts they sell have been evaluated by CARB prior to sale and proven not to reduce the effectiveness of the emission-control system. Such parts replace or modify vital original equipment emissions components and manufacturer-designed engine-operating conditions. Modifications to the engine and emissions control systems of motorcycles can lead to significantly higher smog-forming emissions and adversely affect public health."

    CARB always seems more interested in making money than dealing with smog.
