    flushmounts


    Hey,
    Anyone have any problems getting a sticker in Mass for having flushmounts. Went to the dealer to get some for a winter project to keep me sane. They sell them, but said they wouldn't give me an inspection sticker!! The guy was telling me how most people change them to get the sticker and then change back!! That sounds ridiculous!

    Cause they're only [i]slightly[/i] illegal.

    If they don't meet DOT or state standards - don't expect them to pass on a state inspection. Ditto that for rearsets/pegs with no rear brakelight attachment (if you're so inclined).

    flushmounts wont pass MA inspections at any place that does strict inspections... however if you have a buddy that tells you where they do pass then ur set - that was my problem until a lil birdy told me where to go.

    A good trick is to go to either a place that specializes in customizing Hardley's or sportbikes, NOT a dealer. Dealers have a lot more to lose if they get popped...

    I've been lucky so far up here. There's a coupla places I can go and they won't even look twice at my directionals and/or undertail. Mostly 'cuz they have no clue as to what a stock sportbike is supposed to look like...

    You don't have to have the rear brake working with the taillight. Mine has been disconnected since I got the bike and it always passes inspection (always at a dealer). This past year the kid said something about it, and the service manager said "nope, doesn't matter...the front one works, that's all we need to pass it". Good enough for me!

    gixx6man, this worked for me:

    Bring you OEM flashers with you and tools to swap them. Then ask if they would like the OEM's put back on. Tell them you will swap them out right here and now in their parking lot and then swap them back right here in your parking lot after they sicker it.

    See what they say.

    in MA it's different. just find a local shop that will give you a sticker. forget about the hassle of switching them over to stock ... waste of time since there are places that will do it.

    I always just took the words of the guys that work there as bond. Next time Im bringing some lawbooks with me

    As stated in 540 CMR 4.06a (State of Massachusetts Regulations):
    (a) Brakes must be adequate to stop a motorcycle from a speed of 20 m.p.h. in not more than 19 feet. Each motorcycle shall have either a split service brake system or two independently actuated service brake systems which, upon application, act on front and rear wheels. Any motorcycle which has a number plate issued under the provisions M.G.L. chapter 90, 6A (Plates for antique motor cars) which was not manufactured with either a split service brake system or two independently actuated service brake systems shall be required to have one brake system adequate to stop said motorcycle within the aforementioned distances.
    More specifics :
    540 CMR 4.06a
    540 CMR 4.06b

    JC thanks for making my slackful ass look this up - Im glad I did, now I don't even have to change insp. stations (or install brake switches) .

    As for the dude who asked about the flushmounts - I guess you have your answer, and then some .

    gixx6man... you're pretty much in my area... if you wanna know what shop i went to pm or email me or just ask greg lol.

    didnt have to even turn my bike on - so whose to say that any of the lights/blinkers/horn whatever worked properly lol.... of course it all did...

    if you grow some boobs and dress real cute they might almost forget to charge you for the inspection too lol

    If you get in good with your inspection places (car and bike) you'd be suprised what will pass.

    I installed euro style amber lights in the top corner of the headlights and the bike inspection guy actually told me that I should take the front blinkers off completely and use the euro lights for my blinkers.

    My car...where do I start on that one

    Thanks for all the info. I am going to do it this winter. I just went over to a custom harley shop and they don't even put blinkers on a majority of their customs!! Go figure.
