All our enduro bikes are street legal off the show room floor. I think it is because the manufacturers don't bother over there because of the EPA laws.

The WR comes with a dual filiment bulb in the tailight which makes it very easy to hook up a brake light. The wire to hook up the brake light is under the seat. Just put in a hydrolic swithc in the rear and hook it up the the wire that is under the seat.

Luck it is...I just got a plate for my wr450 and the clerk who inspected it checked the wrong box for the emissions...Otherwise it would have not worked. You could always keep trying til someone screws up like on mine. If you can steer the dmv clerk's expectations just prior to the inspection they might see the offroad only emissions sticker and assume it is the "meets Ca and US emissions standards for ON ROAD use" Of course to do this the bike ought to look like a streetbike- clean and shiny/ turn signals/ possibly no nobbies/ a couple of big mirrors. Another thing that may have helped was mine was tied down on a flat bed trailer and the emissions sticker was mostly obscured by the back part of the front fender...I had to bend the fender to the side(with some difficulty) so she could see it. She saw the sticker and assumed it was for "on road" use. Of course I had her expecting to see that and I was dam lucky
AAhhhhhh, the old "plating in california" question....... I am in the same boat: people claim to have done it, but most people and dealers say it cant be done anymore. So what is the big secret??? Does it just come down to luck at the DMV?
