AIS on all 05's ??????

I'm picking up my 05' in a few days and one of my concerns is te AIS. Here's what I know(or at least think I know):

1)The AIS was only supposed to be on California models. Bikes in other states

were not supposed to have the AIS.

2) I live in Washington state and was at a dealer recently eyeballing the 05'.

On the right side of the cylinder head, I noticed a sizable tube which, after

looking at photos on thumpertalk, I now recognize as the AIS.

Was this bike a california model misplaced in Washington state by accident? Or is the AIS, in fact, on all the 05' WR450's?

I thought the green sticker bike was for CA also not true there on the show room floors here in TX

From what I can tell they all have it - mine does - and yours will too.

It looks like they all have it....

I live in AZ, and have it also.

Anybody know if the Canadian spec bikes will have it?

That's the rumor ....

Check the VIN. If the eighth digit is a C or a 9 (I think), then it is not a CA Green Sticker bike. There's no way it qualifies as green if it doesn't have the AIS (and if it does have the C or 9? in the eighth place in the VIN). To verify the bit about the VIN, check the CA DMV web site. Search for Green Sticker and/or OHV.

Bottom line, if it doesn't have the red sticker digit in the VIN, then it's CA Green and has the AIS.

Someone here picked up their Canadian bike from Blaine WA, they posted that the bike had the smog dealio....

C or a 3 in eight digit is red.

You're right. Here's a link to the DMV web site.

Indiana bikes have it too.

Got mine in AZ as well and sure enough, it's there :cry:

I read in another link someone had 'plugged' theirs :cry:

How, I'm not sure. But I will find out and plug it too :cry:

I stuck a solid rubber cork plug in the metal air line that go's into the head.Then slipped the soft rubber line back over the plug back onto the metal air line.38 cent fix untill someone makes a kit to take that baby off :cry:
