Feb 2002 was the cut off date for 'dual registration' (Green sticker bike with a plate) in Cal.
If you can get a peace officer to ok the EPA as on-road, and get a lighting inspection after your DS kit is installed, you can get it plated. It may not stick, but it seems as though a large percentage have, and do stay plated.

with the regs of today in CA i wouldnt plan on trying to get one plated that i wanted forever cuz its possible that down the road even next registration that they may revoke the tags. If i had the bike and just wanted to try i would but i wouldnt buy one in hopes of having that my only street legal.
