I plated my 2003 WR450 just last month even though across the face of the MSO It said something about it not being street legal and riding on the street was not legal or some mumbo-jumbo like that. I went into the local DMV office and registered the bike and told the counter girl that I wanted a plate, she said I couldn't plate a OHV. I said it's a motorcycle not an OHV. She said that will be $50.00 for 2 years please. The kicker to that was 3 weeks ago I get a letter from the head DMV office in Salem telling me I must surrender my plate because the bike was not street legal. I called them up the next day and was told that I could have the bike inspected for the street legal pieces and get it signed off, which is just what I did. I got my title and registration in the mail this past Monday. I had already installed a Trick Dual Sport kit on my bike which cost $370.00 and has everything you need to make it legal except for the tail light and turn signals on the rear. I didn't get their rear set up because I wanted to try my own idea on that. Their set up is another $30.00 I think. The only other piece that you will need is a rear view mirror. Go to www.trickdualsport.com and check out the kits. It didn't show a kit for the new WR450 but they have one. Call Dale and tell him Jim in so ore sent you.
