That's right. I tried to get the Kalifornia distributorship way back in '91. Turns out the ARB & CARB (+ EPA) procedures require deep pockets, a lot deeper than I've got...and some rather...err..strange California-only tests.

Like running the bike for 24hrs on a dyno (!?!)

Or locking the bike in a closet sized tin shed with hydrocarbon sensors for 3 days, to see how many HC's leak out.

Then there's the high pressure fire hose test. And the electrical system reliability test. Followed by a test against another test.

The Endfield wouldn't make it, I'm afraid.
