The second issue was that I did not have a chain guard?????? Have any of you ever had this proplem? if so what did you use, I took the chain guide of my son's TTR90 last year So I was going to see if could make that work for as long as the inspection takes. I would just hate to have to drill the swing arm for this BS.
The other thing that steamed me was that and just confirmed my negitive opinion about dealers. First I had to keep starting my 400 for the kid doing the inspection. Sure you have to know the process to get quick starts on the 400 but this kid did not know what the decompression lever was and why you would need it. He asked me so I explained and he just looked at me with a blank face and clearly did not understand. Second, since it was pretty obvious that the float was sticking I asked if while they had the bike there if they could open up the carb and hit it with some carb cleaner. The guy who works the desk at the service department did not know what I was saying and replied that I would need to make a seprate apointment for that because it may take several hours.
The deal unfrotunatly has gone the was of most small dealers over the last few years. All street bikes and quads with just a few dirt bike in the corner. The sales/service/parts department has lost of their dirt bike knowledge.
Oh well I get better price on parts from TT, and I prefer to do most work on my bike my self. Also I get a free re-test.
So anyone have a suggestion on the chain guard thing

The guard from the TTR didn't fit, but the one from the wife's XR100 fit with some twisting and some cable ties, hopefully the PA inspection guys like cable ties as much as the aussie guys do.

not all states have Both, some have neither. Florida is one of them we use to have safety inspection's back in late 70's and emissions came and went. i believe the safety inspection's should be brought back. too many dangerous vehicles in operation down here.

It works like this--Pink slip, Compulsory insurance (third party) then rego.
No rego = big fine around $1500 all up
Edit- that $1500 includes no licence
