          The staff recommends that Custom Chrome, Inc. be granted an exemption

forbtheir Rev Tech Cylinder Heads for installation on 1984 to 1995 Harley

IV.       CYLINDER HEAD DESCRIPTION
          The Rev Tech Cylinder Heads have been specifically designed for
installation on 1984 to 1995 Harley Davidson equipped with a 1338 cc engine.

These cylinder heads operate in conjunction with the original equipment

manufacturer‘s (OEM) emissions control system already certified with the stock

engine.     The purpose of using the Rev Tech Cylinder Heads is to enhance the
performance of the motorcycle at off—cycle driving conditions.       By modifying

the spark angle and combustion chamber design of the cylinder heads, Custom
                                         —1—


Chrome, Inc. is able to improve the engine‘s ability to flow air, mix fuel, and
provide greater combustion at higher RPMs.

       Custom Chrome, Inc. manufacturers the cylinder heads out of aluminum

alloy which is similar to the stock version.    The cylinder heads, when compared
to stock, is similar in all parameters except for the cylinder head‘s

combustion chamber volume, stock is 82 cc and modified is 77 cc.    The cylinder
heads are comprised of two components, a front cylinder head and a rear

cylinder head.   The Rev Tech Cylinder Heads are designed with the capability of

using two spark plugs; however, until they develop a dual ignition system

for this application the cylinder heads come with one hole plugged.     No changes

are made to the stock tune—up specifications, and Custom Chrome, Inc. does not

recommend the use of any special octane fuel when using their product.

v.     DISCUSSION OF THE CYLINDER HEADS
       Custom Cflrome, Inc. has requested that the Rev Tech Cylinder Heads be

exempted for 1984 to 1995 Harley David;on equipped with a 1338 cc engine.     A
1989 Harley Davidson equipped with the Rev Tech Cylinder Heads was used as the

test vehicle.    Custom Chrofie, Inc. performed testing at Compliance and kesearch

Services, Inc. in Linden, New Jersey tp be compared against the motorcycle‘s

emission standards.
       The results of the exhaust emissions test performed at Compliance and

Research Services, Inc. are shown in Table 1.


                                      Table 1
                                CVS—75 TEST RESULTS

                                      HC        £0
                                    (grams/kilometer)
       Device   _.                     0.76     4.1
       Standards                       1.0     12.0


          The CVS—75 emissions test results at Compliance and Research Services,

Inc. indicate that the HC and CO emissions of the motorcycle, with the Rev Tech

Cylinder Heads installed, are below the emission standards set for that engine

family.     The Air Resources Board did not conduct confirmatory testing to

validate the emission test results submitted by Custom Chrome, Inc..      _

          Custom Chrome, Inc. submitted all of the required information and

fulfilled the requirements for an exemption.
