When I Registered my wife's crf230, which was alread CA plated, the only thing they wanted to look at was the VIN and ODO. They could care less about the Full Dirt knobies that were on it. They didn't bother look at the lights/signals. (turn signals not reqired in OH)
The only thing the OH BMV (dmv) is real sticky about is Titles, if you want to register a bike, car whatever. you must have the right paperwork and they just about always insist it's "Notarized" So if you buy a bike out of state or locally, don't forget to get the Title notarized.

Anyway, I finally talked to an Ohio State Patrol Officer who is very knowledgable on this subject and he clearly stated I DO NOT NEED AN INSPECTION. He said I just need to go to the nearest title agency and ask for the "Body of Change" afidavit and if they have any questions they can call him personally.
So off I go to my nearest title agency this morning and was successful! In fact it was nothing, I just said I purchased this motorcycle and need to transfer the title into my name and also transfer the title from OR to MC as the bike has everything it needs to be street legal. She completed the transaction, no questions asked.
Now this was a different title agency location than the one where I was told I need an inspection, but even that lady called me back and said I was correct, no inspection is needed.
So S2P, let us know if you continue to have problems and I can give you the officer's name that gave me this information.

Ohio requires Dot tires, Signals Tail/brake light Headlight Horn && 2 mirrors. If any dealer signs the Affadavit that you have that the BMV will accept it.
different title bureaus have varyin evperience with bikes so some of them will give you a hard time. i even looked up the ORC on it at one time and it does nor REQUIRE inspection.

Looks like you maybe right about the signals http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4513.261
It seams I remember reading something about turnsignals were not required, but you had to know the Hand signals. that did seam lame.
One mirror is ok?

Come to Delaware County, I walk it and out in 5 minutes with two street titles, one for the 426 and the other for the TTR 125. I bet I could go in and get one for the TTR 90 if I wanted one.

I tried the no kickstand for a while but got tired of trying to find a place to lean it up against.
Trail Tech has a kickstand that works good for like $80. I have one on my 01 YZ426 and it works good. I took some sticky velcro and put the two sides back to back. Then I but one of those brass rings for a bolt hole and bolted it to the mud flap. I wrap it around the kickstand for added assurance that it doesn't bounce around in the whoops.

I've got a cr125 with no title or mso.
I've got a bill of sale only, does anybody know if theres a quicker way to get to the street title instead of going: bill of sale>offroad titile>street title
