Right away, we were at odds because he said I need a metal tank. I knew this wasn't in fact the case and showed him the DMV paperwork to prove as much.
Everything went OK from there, until he was checking the brake lights. It's currently only activated on activation of the rear brake. He says it needs to activate on application of both brakes. I don't think this is the case, and before I go ahead and buy a switch, I want to be sure he's not getting confused with another state again. Does anyone know for sure if they need to be activated on BOTH brakes? The DMV paperwork is less than clear
"STOP LAMPS 486.251, 484D.125
Mounted on rear of vehicle
Display a red, amber, or yellow light
Be visible from at least 300 feet to the rear in normal sunlight
Be activated upon application of the brake
May be incorporated with the tail lamp"
The cited NRS don't help clarify the issue, either.
"NRS 486.251 Use of head lamps, stop lights and turn signals required.
2. Every motorcycle or moped operated upon a highway must be equipped with stop lights to be lighted in the manner prescribed for the use of such devices."
So, anyone have a for sure yay/nay on that? I'm not concerned with what's a "Good Idea," just what's the minimum to be legal.
Also, he mentioned "Get that fixed then we'll take it to have it vented" Any idea &%$#@! that means? I can't imagine it means being smogged, as DMV explicitly exempts motorcycles from emissions tests.
Thanks for any help!

I called the Honda dealership, who said I should be good to go.
I took it in, got it inspected and swung by the DMV> The inspector there just verified the VIN and signed off. 2 hours and $150 later and it's legal.
