    NH State Inspection Standards


    For the love of all that's holy! Short of struggling through New Hampshire Statutory Authority: RSA 21-P:14, V(a), Article 47a, Part 4(b).2, Section 11-f.2.2, Can someone tell me what the standard is for brake pad thickness and tire tread depth in the state of NH?


    I'm getting ready to winterize my whip and want it ready to go in the spring. I know I'm close but don't want to pull the trigger unnecessarily nor get caught having the shop do it for me at inspection. Considering and especially since I logged less than 300 street miles this year.

    Inspection? I thought it was live free or die up there?

    Na. Some thought the motto promoted a hostile atmosphere and regulated communicative behavior. It invoked a sense of supremacy to the uneducated masses that would take the tagline literally. Fortunately, our elected officials helped us navigate the minefield of social relations and showed us tolerance in the way of expanded taxation and limited personal discretion.

    Call your inspection shop, they should know the exact depths/thicknesses to meet inspection.

    2/32", but you can probably get away with 1/16"

    I like your thinking Randy but I don't believe Lincolns melon is a constant. I bet there's 1/32 difference in my penny vs. your penny. *** No size jokes***

    .063 vs .0625 is snug. I'll be safe at 3/32" then. I bet a good burnout's 1/32"...

    It’s a typo.

    “Live tax free or die.”

    They will also check your brake pads ... and the condition of your rotors...
