I've been trying to figure out the laws myself but found contradicting stuff online and when its through word of mouth I always get different answers. .
I do not rely on word of mouth......or idiots spouting their mouths off online

the info below is from DMV, CHP, Huntington beach city website and
others that have been into motorized bikes for 10 years

Motorized gas powered bikes are legal in California

M2 drivers license,
moped license plate on the bike,
ride in bike lane OK,
No insurance,
must wear DOT helmet,
less than 30mph on level ground,
Maximum of a 2-speed automatic transmission that is incapable of being manually shifted,
capable of Human Propulsion ie Pedals,
less than 2 brake horsepower,
2 or 3 wheels.

The CA law says nothing about the size of the motor.
