Switching the off-road title to an on-road title is my biggest hurdle. Getting it street legal is no problem. NY sucks when it comes to that. We ran out of places to ride by me and i live in the sticks!

I'm sorry.The baja designs kit and dot tires is all you need to get it inspected.

Therein, lies the problem. Here in Oregon, that's the red flag that tells the DMV "no go" on plating the bike. Back when the dealerships were sending in the paperwork, the state would issue the plates no problem, no off-road designation on the title.

I've heard too many stories here recently about guys getting their bikes plated, but then 90 days or so later they get the dreaded letter from Salem saying to surrender the plate and then wait forever for the refund.

yeah it's gonna take lots of homework but hopefully there's some kind loophold. I've been told that there's a title company in Alabama that can issue a title but yet to find it. My buddy lives in PA n titled his kdx back in 98 but they've changed the rules since.

There are usually loopholes

Here in California there are a few. You can inherit the bike from a deceased relative out of state where the bike was already plated. You can bring it into CA plated from another state if it has over 7K miles. There are a couple more. One used to be that you could bring in cars and bikes from other states if you were on a trip and your car/bike grenaded and you had to buy another to get home. We brought in several 2WD K5 Blazers in 1982 from a friend's dealership in Parker, AZ to convert to prerunners. Worked like a charm and no smog.

There are others but people are kinda closed lipped about them. I heard that the DMV regularly googles these forums to find info about how people are skirting the laws. For example I know a sure way to do it and I intend to use it on a new bike for my wife and either a new YZ250 2stroke or a KTM 300EXC 2stroke for myself soon. So I ain't posting it here. I've already worked all the details and everything. I discovered the idea by accident and don't know of anyone else who has done it so if I keep my mouth shut it should fly under the radar...

One obvious way is to buy some other bike that is very similar and transfer the #s to the XRR. And I mean literally transfer the #s. Your XRR is now forever an XRL but it's also street legal. You just have to go all the way through the process so it's bullet-proof if it all gets checked by a smart official.

The smart and easy thing to do is simply to buy an XR650R that was plated legally before the laws changed. This has to be teh cheapest way to do it as well. Plus the plated bikes are often a lot less abused in my experience. Most of the processes above are for bikes made after the cutoff.

Strange laws over your side of the pond, over here if your bike is legal...has a chassis number you can ride it on the road needs basic stuff for MOT but you can get away without lights, ignition and other stuff.

if my brp didnt had a plate and i needed one now, then i think in my country its also no go anymore or i have to pay bigtime.
the legal on road supermotards are a must here nowadays cause many bikers sell the racer and get a sm back because the laws and fines for speeding are going insane overhere but when i lift my front wheel infront of a cop i loose my licence for 10 days at least with a fine like 1500 euro? and that for a first timer, think about it when its done 2nd or 3rd times...........byebye licence and maybe byebye brp listen up

fines are going up in the netherlands from 1-1-2012 with 35% affraid

i think its almost better here to ride without a plate naughty

cheers

hey bikerman,I used a universal switch that goes right into the rear brake master(not the kind with the spring) n a led brake light off of ebay that fits in the stock light.I'm using the stock stator so i kept it simple .(no blinkers nstuff)It cost me like $60.It works really well surprisingly
