Question Victory Exhaust pipe Markings

Hi,
I’m in the process of importing a 2008 Victory into Canada. As part of a checklist for importation an inspector must complete a checklist. Included on the checklist is the statement following statement.

“EXHAUST SYSTEM: must have permanent legible marking, confirming it meets “EPA regulation of 80dB(A)”

Does anyone know where I can find such markings (or similar) on Victory Swept pipes? Is there anything stamped into the pipes themselves inside the heat shields?

Thank-You

You may not find it on those. Most aftermarket, even the ones from Victory have "for off road use" stamped on them.
The OEM has it IIRC at the first/last joint on the muffler. Somewhere close to under the floor board/passenger floorboard area. You may have to look underneath for it. I have seen it but don't remember exactly where.
If I may suggest, put the factory mufflers/pipes on to do the inspection then change back.

Good Luck and Best Wishes

^ this. Factory exhausts on new bikes are required to be stamped that they meet emissions and noise regulations but anything else typically does not and so is not. Even the "factory" aftermarket stuff is, as lost mentioned, considered to be for "off road use only" and is marked as such. Putting a stock set on and swapping out later is your best option unless someone that has the pipes you want can confirm that they are legal.

Riding across the border still requires a import inspection. Unfortunately I do not have original pipes.
