My 03 WR450 has been plated out of state since new - the VIN has never been in the CA system. I'm wondering what would happen if I tried to transfer the registration to CA at this point . I'm always a bit nervous when riding on the street since my drivers license says CA but my plates do not - would be nice to have peace of mind if I ever get pulled over. Would the computer automatically flag the 3 or C in the 8th character, or would my fate rely on the intelligence of the DMV clerk? Anybody out there tried this before?
