    I wish this was enough. USFS ranger doesn't care when he can do the poke test.

    A catalytic converter is not a legally approved US forest service spark arrestor

    Still not legal. No “approved NFS stamp”. At least in Cali

    I was wondering the same on my 1290. What to do? So I installed a ZX-9 muffler and used stainless sink screen mesh in end of muff. Also lowered muff on install so soft bags fit above muff without burning. No sticker but visable screen that I hope will have the rangers happy. 7DDF0094-0746-4BDE-8AF2-678C87BBE712.jpeg

    Hopefully that works. Yosh has a slip on with spark arrestor and db insert. Pricey though.

    Yeah for sure. With these bikes going off road I am really surprised there isnt many options or advertising on mufflers that have them. I know Rangers can be a stickler on them. IDK? And I sure as hell dont want to be “the guy” that burned down forrests let alone people losing their homes. Cheers!!

    Does the factory muffler have the said CA stamp and a screen?
    I dont recall it having any of these.

    I honestly dont think it does. I could be wrong. I think I remember looking for it ( USFS) and also shining a light into muffler but saw no screen. And like posted earlier they stick a rod down bung hole to check.

    Because a forest ranger with a sporadic stick test when in the woods beats annual MOT inspections.
    Move over here

    Says who? I called the local ranger station in capitol forest, they said the catalytic converter satisfies the requirement.

    District 36 told me that if they put their probe down the pipe and no screen or turbine, I cant participate in their event. Even if I have all the stock equipment installed.

    I told them the ranger at Carnegie said it was all good. D36 said then get the ranger to write a letter on their letter head explaining why it is okay.
