I want to make my WR426 street legal to ride in the summer to save gas but I hear keep hearing that it is almost impossible in WA :lol: Some people say to sign the title over to a friend in ID or OR and get it street legal then bring it back to WA, but again I have heard that WA is cracking down on this :lol:

Is it possible to get it a plate?:lol:
If so how?:eek:
What is the process? (send to ID or OR)

I dont want to spend any money on a dual sport kit if I can't even get the bike street legal. Any help would be greatly appreciated :applause:

1st you have to by a baja kit from Bajadesigns.com
2nd. Make it street legal.
3rd. you will have to title it out of state in id or oregon. Which for me means sell it to a buddy have him transfer title and all that then he sells it back to me.
4th. Try to retitle machine back in Wa.

Remember, you will have to pay excise tax in both states and that can add up. Wa is 9% of value and the state will give it a value for you and if it's under that value on the bill of sale.

$5,000 bike in Wa will cost you $450 in excise tax alone
Idaho it will cost you at least half of that.

Add every thing I've talked about an liscensing and you can get to $1,300 easily!!

I have finally started to realize it's just not worth it.:applause:

You're almost better off buying a bike out of state that is already licensed. It sucks that in this state you can build a kit car/motorcycle and get a plate but you can't make a dirt bike street legal and plate it.

This described my understanding of the process until a couple days ago. Run a search on recent posts same subject that I've responded to. According to one TTer who sounds like he is in the know this route no longer works. Just double check before you proceed.
