A cop can either just look at the color of your sticker (right on the plate next to the reg. sticker), or lack of, or run your plate.
Everything is right there at his fingertips: How many times your plate was run, your entire driving & criminal history going back to the day your were born, etc,etc. If he sees your a young punk with a long record, you're gonna get yanked. Since those days are a ways behind me, I actually haven't had the bike inspected since '06 -- haven't ridden much -- been working waaaaaaay too hard!
For cars/trucks, you'll get a friendly "reminder" in the mail that your failed vehicle needs to be re-inspected ................ or your gonna get fisted by Ted Kennedy!
Then they blow the tree-hugger horn about how if your car passes emissions, you'll keep xxx,xxx lbs of CO2 out of our precious air.
I'll ponder that one while I burn some tires & styrofoam ....

I know, before you say it, the lights when lit are the proper colors and much brighter than stock. The inspector wanted to be a hard A.. and that's his job.
I like the looks of the new lights and the way the tail light flashes with the blinkers. Is there a way to put stock lenses over the led bulbs?
I probably could do that with some careful surgery & some epoxy, but it would just destroy
the look I have going. Looks MINT when parked
When the key is off, they actually are clear with a very slight tint. My bike is mostly black with just enough chrome, so the lights look mint, IMO. I couldn't bear to look at it with red lenses on! But the bigger problem would be the water infiltration from the next monsoon I get caught in ( happens every year, like clockwork, when I'm hundreds of miles from home in a t-shirt!
). I'd have to use caulking, which wouldn't look very pretty.
It's much easier to just break the law! ( Judas Priest breaks out ) Darrel was completely wasting.......
