Received Green Sticker for my WR 450!

I slapped the sticker in the most visible place in the fork right away, now I only have to worry about the 96 db.

You know... this is kinda frustrating though. The whole reason that they "started over" with the green/red sticker rules (i.e. all 2002 and older bikes get green stickers) is because it was easier than addressing the allegations of inconsistent application of the rules. The 2003 bikes were supposed to be the first year that they applied the rules correctly. Apparently, you have shown us that DMV is no more squared away today than they were a year ago. I guess the rule of "cross your fingers and hope for a stupid DMV clerk" still applies. I got my fingers crossed...

In the 4/03 trail rider mag it says the wrf450 in stock form meets the 89db rule but not the emissions requirement cause they are so choked up.
The ZYF does meet the emmisions requirement but not the db rule.
I guess I assumed if you uncork the WR it would pass emmisions. But the article did NOT state it would or would not.
sorry for the confusion.

Side note: I spoke to a BLM ranger that works in barstow. He said he would not be enforcing green/red stickers but would check sound if he thought you were too loud.
It's always something. But he was a really nice guy and I think if you show 'em respect they won't hassle ya! That of course is my experience and opinion. I know there are plenty who will say different!

That's the case. ANY 2002 and older bike gets a green sticker now. You can get an 02 WR426 and get a green sticker or an 03 WR450 and hope that you win the "green sticker lottery".
