SpookyTooth had their kit tested in Arizona for emissions...passed just dandy. And AZ isn't very lax about emissions either.

There is a company that's making conversion kits for some of the larger 2 strokes for some of the countries that rely heavily on 2 fuel injection. No unburned fuel is used to push the exhaust out of the chamber, just air. This makes for far less emissions. Not sure how the lubrication problem is solved though.
