    Saw this on FB and it may be of interest to some London riders? Looks like it might have been possible to have kept my XT660!

    Euro 3 Compliance Info
    One of our members has found out how to see if your older bike is actually Euro 3 compliant, see below:
    Good news, i've copied and pasted the result of the riders outcoem - " ULEZ has accepted the documentation and my bike is now ULEZ exempt! The NOx figure is what TFL care about and the 1200GS has a figure of 0.038 whereas the maximum allowed is 0.15 (EURO3 standard) so it is way under.
    Process for 1200GS
    You will need the homologation paper for your bike, it is based on the VIN number I am afraid. I got mine from BMW homologation department (email eccoc@bmw.co.uk) after sending through a copy of my V5, filling in a form and paying 120.00. If you email them will will send you the form you need to complete.

    Once you have the homologation certificate you send that along with a copy of the V5 to TFL (there is a link on ther website for applying for exemption) and you should receive notification in a few days.
    If you have a friendly BMW dealer try ask them for the homologation papers, it may save you 120.00!
    Other < 2006 bikes
    What I did is contact eccoc@bmw.co.uk for the emission figures for the bike in question. You should get a table with the emission figures, the important one is the NOx. If the NOx is under 0.15 then you need to decide if you want to pay the 120.00 for the homologation papers. TFL require the homologation papers to grant you exemption." This may also work with other manufacturers.

    So, this is based on what the manufacturer, say BMW, says the NOx figure is and not the vehicle in question being tested?

    Not knocking this, fair play to however got the exemption.

    But, the can the manufacturers figures be trusted after the ongoing "emissions scandal"?

    Don't shoot me, I'm only playing Devil's advocate.

    Did they try putting their reg number into the TFL's own check form?
    (https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ult...m-checker-ulez)

    My 2006 K1200R is ULEZ compliant (it's a EURO4 standard, so well in due to bikes having to comply to Euro3).

    Have to admit I was quite surprised to see that the big K was still going to be ok for it. Will have to put that on the ad when I try to sell it again!

    Just had a look at the London ULEZ, because it doesn't effect me I've not looked at it before, but isn't it a bit odd that you can pay to pollute?

    Absolutely, there'll be a lot of Londoners flooding the market with pre-loved non-compliant, yet perfectly good bikes in the not too distant. You could pick up a bargain or two
