That the general statutes be amended to prohibit the issuance of a safety inspection sticker or registration plates for any motorcycle on which the manufacturer's imprint on the tail pipe and on the motorcycle do not match, provided legal aftermarket pipes that do not exceed state decibel limits shall not disqualify such cycle from the issuance of such sticker or plate.
