Unfortunately, California stopped allowing conversions in 2004:foul:
Technically they didn't stop allowing conversions but now require the bike has an emission certification which pretty much eliminates most of the off road bikes. For example the KTM's are not actually sold as street legal but because they have the certification they can be converted.

OUTERLIMITS, please have some compassion for a fellow San Diedan.
Brother I'm in the same boat and have not done it yet. I've got the dualsport kit wired up (well most of it) and plan to take the next step soon. As noted above, technically it is not possible. The reality of it though, is that people are doing it every day. Whether they keep their plates long term is still to be seen. As to the vin#, I believe it cannot contain a 3 or a C in the 8th position, but I think that just differentiates a green sticker bike from a red sticker bike. WR's have been green sticker for some time. Yours definitely is, but I don't recall the change date. Something like '03 or '04 I want to say. All the same, there are plenty of people that have converted red sticker bikes to street legal in California as well. Just depends on who you get to handle your paperwork, but that one is probably much more of an uphill battle.

The place closes to Mexico on the West Coast. I asked my Son if it was San Diegan or San Diegian and he said San Diegan and I went with his cause he a lot smarter than me. See I can't even figure out how to Quote Message in reply (Kids not here).
