Street Legal WR450F in NY State

Is anybody in NY State converted a WR450F street legal? Any info will help.

Thanks

Oliver

I managed to get my 90 WR250 road legal in NY about 5 years ago. BUT... tried this year to get 05 wr450 road legal, NO GO. NY state response is " we do not have athority to change manufacturer designation of OFF ROAD USE ONLY, only manufacturer can decide that" ,sounded like legal BS to me. You can bring in a bike that has been converted already(road legal title from another state) or move bike out of state, get it legal and bring it back in.

PM me if you like

I had same thing here in nj dmv told me once the title says for offroad only it cant be changed so I had to find one that was taged already funny thing I bought my bike in ny and it had road tag and title in nj already and the guy gave me a copy of the original and it said offroad only so it must be not what you no but who.

thanks for your replies. I will try and see what will happen. I will keep you posted. Might do it in January. .

Just checking the status on your conversion. I am looking at a 250f from NJ and would like to try to get it street legal, even barely. Places like Galeton, PA won't let dirt bikes in becuase of the registration/insurance reason. Is there any way in NY to get an atv plate on a dirtbike or something at least?

As long as you've got the Certificate of Origin or a transferrable reg, you can get an ATV plate.

You would also have to pay sales tax and a $10 reg fee.

My experience has been you need to go to a rural laid back DMV. I plated my 08 by going to a sleepy town, with a one person DMV. Flo gave me a title and plate, even though the MSO clearly stated "Off Road Only".

I would recommend against getting an ATV plate in NY unless you never plan on riding on the street and you need it for a particular riding area.

I've heard stories like William's, but it didn't work for me, so I converted it in Maine instead. I'm a little leary about trying to transfer the title to NY now, though, since I had previously been ATV registered in NY.
