Or....they may be looking for the emissions sticker
Since the '05 is green-stickered, getting a plate is legal. They'll likely be checking to make sure you haven't modified the engine or exhaust and to check for turn signals, reflectors, DOT tires and other required street-legal gear. If you don't have those items, prepare to surrender your plate. I wouldn't ride the bike there, you may not be able to ride it home. I'm curious though, how did you get a plate BEFORE having the bike inspected? DMV doesn't usually do things that way.

When you street-legal a bike that is not sold from the factory in that configuration in CA, an inspection is almost always required. As for getting the inspector to come to your house, fat chance.
Tell them to send an inspector over to your house and he can inspect it. It is a brand new bike! They will not bother to get anyone over. Check with a Lawyer to see what your rights are in Kaliforniastan!

If the eighth charactor of your VIN is a "C" or a "3" your chances are very slim because the DMV computers have caught up with them.
Is it still possible to get a '00 WR400 CA plated if it has the green sticker?

The biggest BS about all of this is that the bike comes with a smog device that makes this bike more compliant than most vehicles we see on the road everyday. I called CARB and explained this to them, they now say that the bike doesn't meet "Safety Standards" even with a dualsport kit... BS....
The DMV and CARB is running out of excuses!!!!!! They're just making shit up as they go......

They do in Michigan. Call 911 tell them I need a motorcycle safety inspection or vin# inspection and they dispatch someone to my house. And all with a smile. Granted Michigan is a long way from Cali They do things a little different out there.
I say let them come and take the plate off the bike if they want it that bad. Untill then its yours.

I'm with you guys that say "Ignore the request" if you know that it won't pass inspection. Let them come and take the plate off.
I don't think that's the greatest idea... They just won't renew your registration...
