COMOTO an afternarket parts supplier that operates under the RevZilla, Cycle Gear, J&P Cycles brands has settled a dispute with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the alleged selling of non-exempted add-on or modified parts in California.
In total, COMOTO will pay $1,937,500 to resolve the alleged violations, in a mixture of fines to CARB and payments for environmental projects that benefit the community.
“We take the sale of uncertified parts seriously as it can lead to significantly higher emissions that impact the health of California residents,” said CARB Executive Officer Richard Corey. “It is also unfair to the vast majority of manufacturers who comply with clean air requirements.”
According to CARB, it found that RevZilla and Cycle Gear advertised, sold, and offered for sale, roughly 7,750 motorcycle parts that did not have legal exemptions to California’s anti-tampering laws for emission controls.
