                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the California Vehicle Code

                                      K&N Engineering
                           RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly

  Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
 Vehicle Code; and

  Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section
  39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the RK Series Custom Air
 Cleaner Assembly, produced and marketed by K&N Engineering of 1455 Citrus Ave.,
 Riverside, California 92507, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
 applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
 prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the motorcycles equped with fuel
  injection listed in the attached Exhibit A.

  The RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly includes the following main components:
_ open—element reusable air filter, outer plate, air funnel (as applicable), velocity stacks
  (as applicable), crankcase ventilation hose (as applicable), brackets (as applicable), and
 other assorted hardware.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the RK Series
 Custom Air Cleaner Assembly will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
 different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation of the RK Series Custom Air
 Cleaner Assembly will not require the removal of any emission control system
 components, including, but not limited to, evaporative system components such as
 activated carbon hydrocarbon adsorbers.

 Changes made to the désign or operating conditions of the RK Series Custom Air
 Cleaner Assembly, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
 performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
 Order.

 This Executive Order shall not apply to any RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly
 advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or—
 concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.


Marketing of the RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the RK Series Custom Air
Cleaner Assembly for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the RK
Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation of the device and
its emissions impact on the affected vehicles in the modified configuration. Based on
the engineering evaluation, no adverse effect on emissions is expected from use of this
device.

The ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and the
exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the
ARB with reason to suspect that the RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly will affect
the durability of emission control systems, K&N Engineering shall be required to submit
durability data to show that the durability of vehicle emission control systems are not, in
fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE K&N
ENGINEERING RK SERIES CUSTOM AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY:

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.                                                |

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
order, in which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this      gé'{}’ day of June 2009.

                                EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: K&N Engineering

Name of Device: RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly

Background:
       K&N Engineering of 1455 Citrus Ave., Riverside, California 92507, has applied
for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code
(VC) for the RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly designed for the motorcycles
equipped with fuel injection listed in the attached Exhibit A.

Recommendation:                     >
      Grant exemption to K&N Engineering as requested, and issue Executive Order
D—269—35.

Device Description:

    — The RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly includes the following main
components: open—elementreusable air filter, outer plate, air funnel (as applicable),
velocity stacks (as applicable), crankcase ventilation hose (as applicable), brackets (as
applicable), and other assorted hardware.

      The RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly air intake systems are specifically
designed for installation on the motorcycles equipped with fuel injection listed in the
attached Executive Order. The installation of the system does not require any major
modifications to the stock motor, except for the modification of the factory air intake
system to accommodate the RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly air filter and
hardware.

        The RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly is intended to increase the
engine‘s volumetric efficiency and power output at particular engine loads and throttle
openings. At heavy engine loads and increased throttle openings, the airflow into the
engine is increased because the RK Series Custom Air Cleaner Assembly is less
restrictive than the stock air filter. This allows more air to enter the engine, which is
compensated by the vehicle engine control module with an increase in fuel flow,
resulting in a higher power output.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
      This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation of the
device and its emissions impact on the affected vehicles (with the device installed). The
emission levels in the modified configuration are predicted to be below the applicable
certification standards based on prior testing performed by the applicant. Therefore,
based on the engineering evaluation, the staff concludes that the RK Series Custom Air
Cleaner Assembly meets the requirements for a VC 27156 exemption for the            '
motorcycles listed in the attached Exhibit A.
