                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—635—12

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                    California Sidecar
                                  Trike Conversion Kits

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Trike Conversion Kits,
produced and marketed by California Sidecar of 100 Motorcycle Run, Arrington, Virginia
22922, 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 following motorcycle applications: 2006 to
2017 model year Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Series, 2009 to 2017 model year Kawasaki
Vulcan 1700 Series, 1988 to 2000 model year Honda GL1500 Goldwing, 2001 to 2017
model year Honda GL1800 Goldwing, 1999 to 2017 model year Harley—Davidson FLH,
2000 to 2017 model year Harley—Davidson FLST Series motorcycles, 2000 to 2017
model year Harley—Davidson XL Series motorcycles, 2006 to 2017 Yamaha Roadliner
and Stratoliner motorcycles with a 1.8L engine, 2010 to 2017 Victory Motorcycles with a
1731 cc engine, and 2014 to 2017 Indian Motorcycles with a 1811 cc engine.

Installation of the Trike Conversion Kit does not require modification or relocation of any
engine or emission control system components. The exhaust system is not modified
other than the extension of the tailpipe after the muffler. An optional gravity fed 3.4
gallon capacity auxiliary fuel tank manufactured out of polyethylene can be added to the
Trike Conversion Kit for installation on the Honda motorcycles only.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the Trike
Conversion Kits will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Trike Conversion Kits, 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 Trike Conversion Kits 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 Trike Conversion Kits using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the Trike Conversion Kits 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
Trike Conversion Kits may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.


This Executive Order does not exempt California Sidecar‘s Trike Conversion Kit with the
auxiliary fuel tank from compliance with other applicable codes and regulations such as
state and federal safety codes and regulations. Also this Executive Order does not
imply or suggest that California Sidecar‘s Trike Conversion Kit or auxiliary fuel tank
meets other codes or regulations.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior and current submitted emissions test
data generated on a 2008 model year 1.8L Honda Goldwing with the 3.4 gallon capacity
auxiliary fuel tank and a 2014 model year Indian Chief Classic, both modified with the
Trike Conversion Kit. Test results showed that both motorcycles met the applicable
emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure
(FTP) and SHED test (Honda only).

   Device w/ df            0.3           1.8

The Air Resources Board 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.

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 CALIFORNIA
SIDECAR‘S TRIKE CONVERSION KITS.

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         23   day of January 2017.
