Title: London riders: New Emisions, does it effect you!
Post by: b1k3rdude on 13 May 2018, 01:46:35 PM
Summary

I have been aware of this B$ for a while now, but as the new ULEZ (Ultra low emission zone) is coming into force by 8th April 2019 I thought I'd better check the status of both my bikes - 2006 Bandit 1200 & 2005 Fazer 1000 (both bikes are NO LONGER Euro 3 exempt).  I found all the relevant sites where you can put in your reg and it will tell you if your bike is exempt -

More info
[update] both bikes are now no longer exempt, anything before 2007 wont be able to enter the ULEZ zone without incurring a £12:50 charge.

... At the moment.

IIRC there's already plans to decrease the emissions levels in the next few years, despite the fact that bikes reduce congestion and, thus, pollution :(

Obviously does affect my bike, but not my daily commute, so for now i'm not too bothered, but i'm sure they will make the ULEZ zones bigger and more widespread as time goes on.

I'm surprised they haven't blamed the raise in the number of murders/ knife crime in London on vehicle pollution so they can screw a bit more money out of the motorists.

By 2020 Leeds and at least 4 more places will have " clean air zones"  and like London these zones will get bigger and bigger and more expensive as they realise how much money they can make out of them.
Just another ploy to use the enviroment as a tax generator and to put the poor and working class back on the bus where they belong, leaving the roads clear for their betters.

That the irony of it all, a bike is and has been cheaper the public transport for a very long time now. I live in Hertfordshire and London at peak times is horrendously expensive @ £25 for 1 day travel card (the return ticket being no better),where as £25 gets me just over two days travel on the bike. And the cost effectiveness of the bike gets even better when used for local journey's.

What would happen if everyone stopped using their own transport for a week and relied on public transport to work, and nobody bought fuel for vehicles that week. The country would come to a grinding halt, and the treasury would loose millions in fuel tax, vat, and rip off congestion/emission charges. I know it wont happen but perhaps those in power would be more careful when dreaming up schemes to rip drivers off if it did.

That actually happened about 20 years ago didn't it when there was those blockades of the refinery's.

It was a bit like Mad Max 2 with everyone searching for the fuel, the precious fuel!.

For anything like that to work all drivers would have to join in no private cars, 4x4s so no one would have a need to buy fuel Left bikes out, as there would be no SMDSY no D**K heads in 4X4S, Audis, BMWs, Mercs  or any other cage so it would be safer for us to ride.

I remember it well. I had enough petrol in my car to get me to/from work for a few more days (about 50 mile round trip) and the company wanted to send me up to Corby for a few days.

I agreed to go on the proviso that they found me a diesel car with a full tank of fuel so I could get home again to Sussex. They found one with half a tank and our warehouse in Corby had its own fuel bunker for the trucks so I could fill it up for the return.

On arriving in Corby they were made to fill the car up BEFORE I started any work so I knew I would get home :)

the roads were deserted though. It was a lovely drive there and back.

So when they expand the zone as far out as the North & South circular roads in October 2021 is that going to encompass The Ace Cafe?. The actual premises is on the 'outer' side of that road, but will the road to access it be included in the ULEZ charge?.

'Historic' vehicles have an exemption and obviously the really modern bikes are OK, but it would financially affect the riders of everything accesing The Ace that was produced between 1978 and the introduction of Euro 3 wouldn't it?.
Don't expect to see so many classic 80's Japanese two-strokes attending events there in the future if that's the case :rolleyes .

Either I miss-read or the status of the bikes was changed, because now both bikes no longer are and will have to be sold -

Basically, if you can prove you old pre-2007 bike produces less than 0.15 g/km NOx, there's a fair chance it could be made exempt from the ULEZ. So, anyone got any stats for the our FZS600's or FZS1000's? No mention of NOx on the V5 for my 2003 FZS600.
Title: Re: London riders: New Emisions, does it effect you!
Post by: YamFazFan on 04 January 2019, 11:00:59 AM
If the FZS600 can get an exemption there's hope for everyone!. No chance I'll bet.
Title: Re: London riders: New Emisions, does it effect you!
Post by: Arfa on 04 January 2019, 01:32:36 PM
Really not sure, seems it certainly fails the Euro-2 standard on CO2 emissions alone (14.8g/km - https://www.ultimatespecs.com/motorcycles-specs/honda/yamaha-fzs-600-fazer-1999 (https://www.ultimatespecs.com/motorcycles-specs/honda/yamaha-fzs-600-fazer-1999)). Whereas Euro-2 and Euro-3 stipulate CO2 limits of 5.5 g/km and 2 g/km.


But as far as NOx emissions I can't find anything. :-( If it's below that 0.15 g/km limit for Euro-3, there's a chance the FZS600 could live on in London!


Euro emission standards: https://www.transportpolicy.net/standard/eu-motorcycles-emissions/ (https://www.transportpolicy.net/standard/eu-motorcycles-emissions/)
Title: Re: London riders: New Emisions, does it effect you!
Post by: mtread on 04 January 2019, 04:25:12 PM
Just checked my V5s. Like I suspect everybody else's, my FZS600 doesn't show a NOx figure. My 2015 Tiger 800 shows 0.117 (pass), but my (fuel injection) 2004 Speed Triple shows 0.160 (just fail). So I think we will be lucky to get the 600s and 1000s low enough.


 Having said that, if there are no NOx figures registered with dvla for our bikes, shouldn't we be given the benefit of the doubt?


My diesel Mondeo is showing 0.225  :eek On the other hand, any VW that's ever been built passes with flying colours  :lol

Post by: b1k3rdude on 31 January 2019, 08:13:06 AM
So as I suspected the FZS1000 is technically Euro3 compliant and all we need is a Cert to continue to ride out bikes in London -

04-03-2019 MAG recommends ULEZ ‘breathing space’ for motorcycles

MAG has asked London authorities to allow time with bikers to prevent an angry, administratively nightmarish chaos over ULEZ charges for motorcycles.

MAG met with former Chair of the Transport Committee on the Greater London Authority, Keith Prince AM, at London’s City Hall to seek a postponement for motorcycles from the ULEZ pollution charges for older motorbikes. This was supplemented by a formal letter (link HERE (https://wiki.mag-uk.org/images/9/97/20190301163936590.pdf)) to the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, requesting the postponement.  Reasons identified for the postponement of the charges include:
  • The Mayor and TfL haven’t yet grasped issues relating to the introduction of the ULEZ charge for older bikes. This means eleventh-hour panic could lead to ill-considered, knee jerk decisions from bikers and also from policy makers.
  • Postponing ULEZ on motorcycles has a tiny impact on emissions. By TfL’s own figures fewer than 4,000 bikes will be non-compliant with Euro 3 – a figure itself already declining through entirely legitimate individual exemptions.
  • ULEZ as it stands means the certainty of injustice, as one biker can be charged whilst riding next to a biker with an identical bike that’s exempt.
  • Postponement can still lead to charging in 2021 if evidence proves the case for it. Currently TfL has no meaningful evidence on motorcycle emissions, nor effective modelling techniques to know the positive effect of modal shift to powered two wheelers. A delay provides time to measure real world emissions and journey time-savings – which will also reduce congestion and thus secondary emissions.
  • The social impact on the poorest road users, who can often only afford older motorcycles and scooters for their commuting needs, has been totally ignored and turns the ULEZ charges into a regressive tax against the least wealthy.
  • TfL has yet to justify the disproportionate effect of charging motorcycles, which would have to pay the same as older cars, while newer cars get in for free.
MAG’s Director of Communications & Public Affairs, Lembit Öpik, warns: ‘there’s a pressing need to take all of this into account to avoid administrative nightmares and injustices. Many motorcycles facing the charge are operating at emissions levels below the ULEZ emissions thresholds. TfL would be obliged to refund any payments made by those riders. So let’s be sensible and postpone this charge, before the whole thing descends into chaos.’


So I have renewed my ancient subs to MAG, due to the work they are doing on our behalf regarding ULEZ.

FZS600 is a no no.... (see below from Yamaha) might be worth someone asking about the FZ6


Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your enquiry.
We do however regret to advise that only models constructed to comply with European Whole Vehicle Type Approval, regulations that were not fully introduced until 2003, will qualify for a CoC.
Due to the age of your machine it was not subject to European Whole Type Approval testing, in this instance we can only advise the NOx output for the Model code, therefore a machine of that model of a similar age, which was 0.185 (g/km).
We apologise we are not able to be of assistance.
Kind Regards

So I have done a freedom of info request to TFL - I want to know exactly what kit is required to test bikes for NOx and create a CoC.

Superbikehire (http://www.superbikehire.co.uk/) in east london atm are the only place I know of, but they are charging £175 and they wont guarantee a pass - smells like a cash gouging scam so decided I would like to know how they can justify this cost and why some bikes wont pass.
Title: Re: London riders: New Emisions, does it effect you!
Post by: mtread on 25 May 2019, 01:14:07 AM
As someone who has had to answer FOI requests in the past, I fear you will be fobbed off. TFL will say that any testing station /dealer that has approved kit for testing NOx to a Euro 3 standard can provide TFL with results. So far only one dealer has applied to do this, but they have asked for others to apply. The fee is a commercial decision by the garage, nothing to do with them.
The CoC is the result of the test carried out by the manufacturer. A trustworthy source.
The question needing to be asked is why don't TFL accept that bikes of the same model /year as one that has a CoC should also be exempted? Why do all bikes of the same type need their own CoC, when they are identical (in terms of NOx).
As I said, anybody taken to court for a bike identical to one TFL have passed, would win.

I have an 03 Foxeye 600 (FZS?)  and need to ride in to The City for work.  Plus I live inside the South Circ.
I took a punt (ok, my company paid for it) and had it tested.  Guess what??  It passed!!  It failed first time, but was so close they were able to tweak it and it passed! 

Cost an arm an a leg, but will pay for itself after about a month.  I now have a CoC from TFL.
The whole thing is BS and, as soon as it comes out to the SC I will have to get rid of the Voyager, but I am bloody well keeping the VR6!!

That's very interesting. When I asked Yamaha about a CoC for my 03 fzs600, they said they couldn't issue one for the year/model, but their tests suggested a 'fail' at 0.18.
Goes to show the (expensive) benefits of individual testing. As you say, will save money quite quickly.

So I got a replay from TFL to my Foi request -

Quote

You asked:  “Please confirm the make and model of equipment required to test motorcycles for ULEZ exemption, specifically testing NOx output to produce a Certificate of Conformity.

 The testing that would be required for motorcycles is the type-approval ‘type 1’ emissions test. This test must be performed on a dynamometer capable of being adjusted for appropriate road-load coefficients and with a driver aid capable of displaying the appropriate velocity/time co-ordinates for the legislative drive cycle for each class of motorcycle. Emissions analysis must be by a minimum of a 5 gas analyser specified to measure NOx over the required drive cycle, whilst taking account of total gas volume over the same cycle, and producing a single value in grammes/km. Emissions testing is to be carried out in accordance with the regulation ECE/TRANS/180/Add2
 Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
So what is a "type-approval ‘type 1’ emissions test" and has anyone every had one done? And Dynomometer sound a lot like a dynojet rolling road...

So I too asked Yamaha if they could give me any NOX info so I could apply for an exemption for my '02 fzs600. The NOX limit for TfL exemption is 0.15g/km, You can see from their reply below that they reckon it might be slightly over if compared to 'similar' bikes.

So after yet more research I found out which government dept to contact to go about getting my bike/s (2006 GSF1200 and 2005 FZS1000) tested to obtain my own EWVTA Certificate of Conformity. I emailed said dept enquiries@vca.gov.uk  and got the following reply -
Quote
Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your email enquiry dated 18 August 2019, concerning the above.

The Certificate of Conformity comes from the manufacturer.
Although DVSA carry out the MSVA testing (as we have the facilities to do so) we cannot make a decision on which vehicles require the testing prior to registration. The DVLA are the authority who will register the bike so it is their decision what paperwork (if any) will need to be submitted to them to allow registration to occur as multiple methods can be used (be it MSVA certificate, Certificate of Conformity etc).

The DVLA email service can be found here -

- 0300 790 6801 for drivers queries.
- 0300 790 6802 for vehicle queries.

To be able to permanently register a motorcycle, quad or trike, that is less than 10 years old in the UK  with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) , you must either provide proof of European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) obtained from the manufacturer, or put the vehicle through a Motorcycle Single Vehicle Approval (MSVA) test.

You can find the MSVA application form here (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/motorcycle-single-vehicle-approval-msva-1) and you can view the fees for the MSVA test here.

Subject: ECWVTA and COC - how to obtain for Motorcycle

To the VCA & VLSA,

I own a 2005 Yamaha FZS 1000 motorcycle that I learned a few years after purchasing it, that it was originally a US model imported into the UK.  How do I go about getting CoC certificate from yourselves for my motorcycle as stated near the top of the page on the following government website –

-  https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-approval/motorcycle-single-vehicle-approval (https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-approval/motorcycle-single-vehicle-approval)

I am having to email my inquiry as the above page doesn’t state or link to anywhere where or how to get the CoC for an imported vehicle.

Kind regards

Now I looked at the MSVA application form and the webpage I downloaded it from and it doesn't state anywhere on that form (typical government inter-dept failings) that the bike needs to be less than 10 years old, but as I don't have to pay anything upfront I have nothing to loose by trying to get both bikes tested.

If you read the thread in the FZS1000 forum, you'll see Yamaha will let you have a CoC (for £60) showing your bike has a NOx level that is exempt. Then you just send it to TFL....

I believe this is only on bikes manufactured in europe, mine is a US import that was converted to UK spec.

Got a link to the above thread?
