    POLICE OUT TO MUFFLE MODIFIED SNOWMOBILE EXHAUST SYSTEMS

    Distance and time are major reasons these tickets will just be paid. 110 bucks, no record on your DL so really, nobody in their right mind takes a day off work and drives 14 hours there and back and spend four hours at the court house, might have to miss two days of work or you will wish you did after that. I sure as crap would not fight it in that scenerio, but locally I would if I had a quiet after market exhaust. I have a sled that you could not buy the stock exhaust for any longer, am I to believe the law says I have part it out because the exhaust failed. That is ludicrous, and any judge would understand ht the law was not written in this manner and only the listed after market type set ups or gutting your exhaust is what is illegal. Police will simply charge any person with any after market because they think this is the law. They are wrong, but you have to go and fight. I do not know why people keep quoting the msva where it states you cannot modify any part that is required under the MVSA Canada. It has nothig to do with exhaust, but is for things like throttle cut off switches, kill switches, etc.

    On another note, the cops in the article stated that loud cans are allowed on private property, they are not, there is only one exception and that is sanctioned racing.

    Well that is the kicker, it is a grey area where the court would have to determine if any aftermarket muffler with baffles was to be deemed a hollywood muffler or not. It sure is not up to a cop.

    can you please show me where the MVSA states anything about a muffler.

    No it does not. It is clearly stating that any part on the sled that was required by Motor Vehicle safety act( https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/acts-regulations/acts-1993c16.htm) found in the link, cannot be altered. That begs the question, is the muffler listed as one of these parts in the MVSA. I do not see it there, and you seem to be unable to provide me a link to where it may be. I say that aftermarket exhausts are perfectly legal, just as they are in cars and trucks, however the stipulated types of exhausts mentioned in the MSVA are not, those being straight pipes, by passes, cut outs, gutted, and the grey area hollywood muffler.

    The act being the motor vehicle safety act. Now, could you please link me up to the section in that act that mentions mufflers? I searched and could not find it..so, very grey indeed.
  11. Trailered to Smiths Falls and rode up to Arnprior for lunch. The vid starts in smiths falls and ends at PJ's. The trails further south are good but need more snow, the good part is, ice base, so it will hold the snow it gets and the groomer will not be dragging up slag. once you get to Almonte the snow cover is double and the trail is better. The trails off the railbed are not as good but are passable. Very nice ride, and a very good smoked meat sammich t PJ''s. I will say this, a pint of Bud light, and the sandwhich was 23 bucks before a tip which seemed a little on the high side, the beer was a fin. i guess I should not complain as the cost of doing business is high these days and the food was very good, but fries and a sammich should be under 15 bucks IMO.

    Show me where a muffler is listed in the motor vehicle safety act. I cannot find it but may have missed it. If it is not in there, then we must defer to the first part of the MSVA section that outlines the type of exhausts that are illegal. If you have a quiet aftermarket exhaust and get a fine you would win in court unless they can show that the muffle was a hollywood type...very vague but I am sure a stock versus the questionable muffle on video with a db meter showing them to be the same would solve the question in court. the crowb would not be prepared in any way to prove your guilt unless it was loud, and if police do not use a db meter they will have a hard time proving it. db meters are the way to go.

    Unless the muffler is part of the motor vehicle safety act, like the kill switch and brakes are, then it is not included and aftermarket exhaust that is as quiet at stock would be just fine. The thing is, if you run a quiet exhaust, stock or aftermarket, then you will be fine. Run a loud exhaust and you should rightfully expect a fine if the cops stop you. Those loud cans are considered hollywood mufflers are all know what a bypass gutted and straight pipe are.
