I might be screwed...

bought a 2007 Yamaha R6 in Arizona. Went to register in Cali and they need to inspect the bike. The lady at DMV said most bikes are 49 state California being the 50th. They need to inspect my bike to finalize the registration. I looked at the owners manual and it has a "C" in parenthesis at the end of the model number. I don't know if this is done on all R6 manuals to save money or it actually is a Cali model. Then I looked at the model label under the back seat. It also has a "C" at the end AND it's highlited. Could I have a Cali model already?? I guess the difference is Cali models have a charcoal canister (like my 95 Mustang Cobra Cali) and other states do not. Any thoughts???

You're probably OK. I bet that people used to got to neighboring states like Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon to get vehicles that beat the California emissions. Maybe CA got those states to sell vehicles that meet CA-emissions regs, so they couldn't beat the system. Most states are probably going to meet CA rules pretty soon anyway.

Yeah the gay emmissions laws! But I believe that the new ones all pass Cali standards so as not to have to make two models! And if not they're not far from it with all the emmissions bs that they have on them! As well as many dealerships around cali selling the cali model because of the over production of the model and trying to aid in the ordeal. I couldn't deal with it, I love my pipe!!

All the R6's in the states are Cali models already, with that huge catalytic converter. You should be straight.

I just don't know guys...

The owner's manual points to three decals that are guides for the extra hoses and charcoal canister routing for Cali bikes. I lifted my tank and I don't have these stickers. That's supposedly what the DMV is looking for. I looked everywhere to see if I could buy the stickers, but to no avail. I guess I'll have to just get it inspected and if it fails, register in Illinois. I'm a resident there anyway since I'm military stationed in Cali.

they shouldn't give you too much hassle b/c tons of people in cali buy out of state vehicles in order to avoid the hefty state tax.

Update....

OK, took it to inspection today. As I suspected, they saw that the emissions label only includes fed standards and not Cali. The lady inspecting then told me I couldn't register the bike in Cali. I told her I was military and she said, "Well, that changes everything!" So we went over the paperwork and got it registered. I kinda fibbed and told her I was stationed in Arizona when I bought the bike and immediately transferred to San Diego after the purchase. All in all, it worked!

No, the C is a general designation... after that, there are two designations, one for 49 states, one for cali.

No, that is not correct.

Here is the front page of the parts catalogue for the 06 r6. Notice that there are two separate models, one for cali, one for the other 49 states:
