Dual Sport Laws (California)???
Posted June 30, 2005 - 04:44 PM
1) Do I have to have a speedometer/odometer? (if so will a gps qualify)
2) Do I have to have mirrors and how many?
3) Are flush mount blinkers acceptable?
Any information would be very helpful. Thanks

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) established emission regulations for on-highway motorcycles beginning with 1978-year models. Off-highway motorcycles must have an emission label affixed to the vehicle indicating certification by the manufacturer for on-highway use when converting to on-highway or dual registration. Registration guidelines for off-highway motorcycles converting to on-highway or dual registration require verification of the emission label.
Off-highway motorcycles previously converted to on-highway or dual registration will not be subject to verification. Off-highway motorcycles year model 2003 and newer with a red sticker will not be allowed to convert.
NOTE: ATV OHVs cannot be originally registered for on highway use or converted to on-highway registration, regardless of aftermarket conversion kits or added equipment.
Please direct questions regarding emission certification or labeling to the California Air Resources Board at 1-800-242-4450 or visit their website at www.arb.ca.gov.

More than anything, if you have a red sticker bike and are trying to get a plate for it you won't get passed
Dan CJ22 has a 400 which is defiantly green stickered but probably still has a 3 or C in the 8th position of the VIN, I know my 02 426 does.

4 blinkers, (see note below, but I'm pretty sure they're required)
mirror on left to see 200 (2 not required)
battery that will power tail light 15 minutes with bike not running
Must be able to stob from 15mph in 32feet or less
Noise limited to 80dbA
I didn't see avthing in the CVC regarding Speedo/Odo or signals
Clear enough for ya?

Its even less requirements than that, go to the DMV and simply get the motorcyle license guide from the DMV, they have them laying all over the place. Its the manual you read before taking the permit test. IT has ALL the requiremnts in it, period.
