C-24.2, r. 9.001 - Regulation respecting the control of sound emissions produced by the exhaust system of motorcycles and mopeds

Full text
4. When required to do so by a peace officer, the driver of a motorcycle or moped must help in measuring the sound emissions produced by the exhaust system of the driver’s vehicle by performing the following:
(1)  in the case of a motorcycle with a transmission having a neutral position,
(a)  sit on the vehicle’s seat;
(b)  put the transmission in the neutral position;
(c)  ensure the stability of the vehicle in the upright position;
(2)  in the case of a motorcycle with an automatic transmission having no neutral position and a moped,
(a)  let the vehicle rest on its centre stand;
(b)  ensure the stability of the vehicle in the upright position;
(c)  lift the back wheel from the ground so that it can turn freely;
(d)  straddle the vehicle without sitting on it or, if the driver is unable to do so, stand beside the vehicle on the opposite side from where the measurement is carried out;
(3)  in the case where the vehicle has a control system that may affect the sound emissions of the exhaust system, adjust the system in the position giving the maximum noise;
(4)  where the measurement method where the engine runs at a constant speed is applied, activate the throttle of the vehicle in order to reach and maintain for at least 2 seconds the rotational speed of the engine to the value determined in section 6;
(5)  where the measurement method where the engine runs at a variable speed is applied, activate the throttle of the vehicle in order to increase progressively for at least 2 seconds the rotational speed of the engine from the idle engine speed, up to the value determined in section 6;
(6)  where the measurement method where the engine is idling is applied, let the engine of the vehicle idle.
