IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Big Sucker,
manufactured and marketed by Arlen Ness of 6050 Dublin Blvd., Dublin, California
 94568, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable motorcycle

not recommend tuning the motorcycle to specifications different from those of the

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Big Sucker, as exempt by
the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the motorcycle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 Marketing of the Big Sucker using any identification other than that shown in this
 Executive Order or marketing of the Big Sucker 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 Big
Sucker may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the motorcycle
 manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted exhaust emissions test data
generated on a 2008 model year 1.58L. Harley Davidson Touring motorcycle, modified
with the Big Sucker. Test results showed that exhaust emission levels met the
