I plated my bike ('01 WR426) in Oregon before moving to San Diego a few months ago, anticipating I'd get grief if I tried to get a green sticker for it. I haven't registered it yet since I "technically" still live in Oregon, but I'll keep you posted on my progress.
As for your situation, do a search on "Vermont" and "Plate" and you'll get the scoop on getting a Vermont plate. Once you have that you'll be able to get a CA plate, which is the equiv of a green-sticker!
Also, ElectrexUSA is a dual-sport kit manufacturer (among other stator and lighting coil products) and are very knowledgeable about CA law on plating. Take a look at their site and contact them with questions. I called them before moving down here and they were *very* helpful.

Ask for Ritzo (the owner) and tell him you heard about them on ThumperTalk!

Steve, I called the number you posted and spoke to someone, possibly Ritzo, but he couldn't offer much more help. He did say to look up the State of Vermont DMV. I will soon. I was hoping to switch to a WR 426 since it is lighter, faster, slightly smaller than my xr600 and dual sport it too. I guess I may have to look at Husqvarna, KTM or even an XR650R although that is actually bigger.

I told him that since I got such a great deal, I would recommend him to others.
Now I just need to get rid of the Canadian peahole muffler that came with it.

If you're looking for a WR, I'm thinking about selling the ThumperTalk bike (check my signature for all the details). If you're interested in knowing more send me an email:
