You can do it yourself in CA with the proper form and the stock emissions sticker located on the rear fender near the seat. If your bike is a California bike, then the sticker will say it conforms to California Emissions. Go to a dealership to see these on new XR650Rs. The stickers are also on the 450X and street legal dual sports like the 650L but probably in a different location. I will look for that DMV form online and post the link.

There is also a company that will do it for you. They are based out of Riverside, CA and charge a fee.

Found it. The form is at the bottom of the link. This page tells you how to fill it out. Make sure you have a horn, DOT headlight, functional blinkers and brake light, lighted speedo, at least 1 mirror, battery to run lights and horn with motor not running.

I have a buddy who is a CHP and he said that to be a dualsport it needed to have a steel tank. I also pointed out that KTM sells them with pastic tanks. He figures it must be something that was mandated in the past and isn't watched closely now days. I reminded him we live in the Republik Of Kalifornia.
