A local Harley Davidson expert says the Fredericton Police Force is wrong to paint all after-market exhaust products with the same brush as it vows to clamp down on vehicle noise.
Rod Johnsen, owner of Chopper Rods Inc. in Douglas, said it isn't illegal to install an after-market exhaust and they're installed all the time.
Every car that rolls off a factory assembly line comes with an exhaust system that eventually needs to be replaced, Johnsen said. It's not illegal to take that vehicle to a local muffler shop and repair it. The same holds true for motorcycles, he said.
