For us down under the bikes are street legal out of the box, knobbly tyres and all.

When I bring mine in for inspection, I'm gonna get my tire marker and highlight "Dunlop" and add D.O.T.

You are very fortunate that Oregon has the good sense and fair-play to take this on a bike-by-bike basis. Don't fudge the tires. You may not get a third chance.
Iowa had already inspected (rigorously!) and approved my bike long before I even bought it. They are not being anywhere near as reasonable, though I still have my Title and plate and a current Registration. But it has been a long, ugly battle with more to come... You don't want any of this!!!
Beg, borrow, or buy the tires!!! Sanding off the "off-road" designation is NOT enough. They know an approved tire will clearly say DOT on the sidewall. Just my best advice to guy I want to see win one for us all...
Please keep us posted?
Oops! Day late and a dollar short, as usual... Just read your second post. You ARE VERY LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations, too!

Once they get a look at your dualsport kit, They got to let you keep your plate.

Once that they found out that I had a TRICK DUAL SPORT kit on my bike, it was an automatic pass slip and they let me keep the plate.
