orrec -- Off-Highway Motorcycle Workshops: El Monte on February 27, 2014 and Sacramento on March 6, 2014

Posted: 14 Feb 2014 15:12:34
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) invites you to participate
in a public workshop to discuss the owner usage survey and
emissions testing elements of our assessment of off-highway
motorcycles (OHMC).  The goal of the assessment is to better
understand how exhaust and evaporative emissions from OHMCs, in
particular red-sticker vehicles, can be reduced.

The workshop will be held in two locations as indicated below;
each workshop will cover the same topics.  The workshops will
consist of a one hour presentation by staff, followed by a
question-and-answer session. 

Date:        February 27, 2014
Time:        10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location:    California Air Resources Board
             Annex 3, Conference Room 100 
             9460 Telstar Ave. 
             El Monte, CA 91731

Date:        March 6, 2014
Time:        12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Location:    California Air Resources Board
             Monitoring and Laboratory Division
             1927 13th Street , 1st Floor Conference Room
             Sacramento, CA 95811

After the El Monte workshop, a laboratory tour will be offered to
participants who wish to visit ARBís Haagen-Smit Laboratory
motorcycle evaporative and exhaust emission test cells. The
laboratory tour will begin immediately after the El Monte
workshop from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The workshop notices, directions, and additional information are
available on ARB's website:

Background: In 1998, the Board approved amendments to off-highway
recreational vehicle (OHRV) regulations that link registration
with compliance to exhaust emission standards, creating the
red/green sticker program. Year-round operation is allowed only
for emission compliant (green sticker) OHMCs and all-terrain
vehicles. OHRVs that are not compliant with ARB emission
standards are issued a limited use red registration sticker to
restrict vehicle operation on public land during peak ozone
season in regional non-attainment areas. 

In July 2013, the Board approved a regulation establishing more
stringent evaporative emission standards for green sticker OHRVs.
Although the Board at that time decided to continue to exclude
red sticker OHRVs from evaporative controls, it directed ARB
staff to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the opportunities
for both evaporative and exhaust emissions reductions from red
sticker OHRVs with a commitment to return to the Board with an
update by November 2014. The owner usage survey and emissions
testing plan to be discussed in these workshops are a critical
element of the assessment that will be presented to the Board in
late 2014.
