    Default Modifications allowed on BIkes [as per Indian Law]

    Hello,

    sorry for the separate topic ..as i couldn't able to find the right thread which discusses this

    Here all can contribute [like which mods are allowed and which not] so the new thread.

    my question is :

    Q: Is repainting the bike/car is legal ?? means in RC book the color is mentioned and one wants to paint with different color then is it allowed ?

    Q: if its allowed then is there any procedure to change [color mention] it in RC book ??

    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    free flow is not legal at all, other engine mods i think would need an approval from the rto as being safe for the streets (not really sure about this)...

    as far as painting is concerned yes you can get the color in the rc book changed to the one you paint ur bike, more info on this can be gotten from an rto agent, i also heard that there is a way to paint the bike and keep the rc book as it is if u leave one part of the bike in original color mentioned in rc book.. maybe someone else can shed more light on this

    Nothing on the number plate other than the registration number. Anything else would make you liable to be challaned.

    Free flow doesn't have a cat-con. The vehicle is no longer complaint to emission norms of the land.

    Free flow increases noise, most probably exceeds noise regulation limitations.

    Doing both is illegal.

    i dont have a cat-con and my bike clears the puc tests without any issues,the main reason why a free flow is not allowed is because it crosses sound limit of 80db and according to the rule any kind of modification at all is not allowed to the exhaust, let alone replacing the whole thing with a louder one.

    regarding the number plate it is now mandatory to have embossed number plates, and thus even without any stickers the usual number plates we have are non-compliant of the current laws

    Passing Emission norms is different from Passing PUC. I hope people will understand this someday.
