Ok so i am very new to dirt bikes and from recommendations from a friend they told me i should go with a WR 2001+ 426 or higher for my first dirt bike.

I have found a bike that will be looking at today but i have a few general questions on the Vermont plate/Street legal bike in California. I was told the bike is red sticker but can be green stickered if i get it registered in CA, but if do it will not be street legal.

I really would like to be able to run in the Green Sticker areas but then again i also want to ride this on the street at some point.

I have done a few searches on the forums about Dual Sport and Vermont plates but i can't seem to find a answer to match my situation.

One last question, was the 2001 Yamaha WR 426 stock Green Sticker in California?

Thanks for all the help!

From the FAQ sticky...

"Q: Which WR is Red/Green sticker compliant?
A: 98-02, 05+ are Green Sticker compliant. The 03-04 are Red Sticker bikes."

Yeah, I read up on it a little and it seems that it is definitely green sticker, but can't be transfered to Cali with the "D/S" status... We can try tho!
