No person shall sell or install a motorcycle exhaust device that is not equipped with an exhaust muffler bearing the United States environmental protection agency required labeling applicable to the motorcycle's model year, as required by section 205.169 of title 40 of the code of federal regulations, nor shall any person sell a motorcycle without an exhaust muffler bearing such labeling.
