Virginia Legal XR 650??

11 posts in this topic

:worthy:

All, I have been researching online anyone who has converted an 01 XR650R to Dual Sport (Plated) in Virginia.

The 01 did not come with a title only bill of sale.

I have checked the details on the VDOT website and all related legislation. It is now a matter of how to go about licensing the BRP.

Anyone with experience in converting any bike to DualSport in VA, please drop let me know.

Greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the info. Checked out the garage. Nice rig to say the least!

I don't have a title since it was bought here in VA. But do have the MSO.

I plan to put on a Baja Designs Kit and get it inspected. I see you have the dial speedo. I have seen the digitals and analog. Anyone better than the other in your opinion.

I am new to the DS stuff. I used to ride trails when I was younger and just picked up the XR to do both.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I DS'd an '01 R in Virginia about 3 years ago (see My Garage). BUT... I had a clear title from the previous owner (TX).

Like piginc said, apply for a clear title, get your R converted while you're waiting, get it inspected and once you get your title take that and your inspection receipt to DMV and tell them you want a street title. They didn't blink when I asked for a street title.

An important tp for the inspection: I would not recommend trying to get it inspected at a bike dealer. They are often much more strict about the regs fine-print. Find a local inspection shop that also does bikes, they'll generally be a bit more relaxed (and friendlier).

Good luck! Let us know how you make out.

Ride safe.

Thanks for the data!

Will apply for the title. In the meantime, will pick up the Baja Designs kit. I have been researching and all fingers point to price of about 450.

Did you get a better deal?

Reference to the Analog, not certain if I want the digital or not. Will research and get back to you. Thanks again!
