I see this forum is a lttle old.AS you most know I traded my XR650L for a XR650R.I want to ride it on the street some,but after checking the local tax commisioner,They say you can't tag a off road bike.I went as far as buying a frame with a title from Keepitroosting.com.I thought it would come with a good title,but the title say's"off road only".Now I don't know what to do?I can't afford a new KTM,and I really love my XRR,so the only thing I know to do is buy a basket case XR650L and put my XRR engine in it,or swap vin's.lol
This is the most stupid law I have ever seen!I'm willing to make my bike as streetable as any production bike,and can't even ride it on the street.I have no problems welding gussets on the XRL frame to keep it from flexing.Has anyone heard of this being done yet?
If you can get an XRL frame with a title, cut the head tube with the VIN and date plate and replace the XRR tube. Then the frame will match the title and you will have done a years less fabrication to it and keep the XRR suspension to boot. Then take the title to the DVM and register it as an XRL. walk outside and go:p
