Can you plate a 2001 WR426f in CA?

I have a 2001 Yamaha WR426f. In CA, can you get this plated? If so, what do you need and how much does it cost at the DMV? Any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately, CA stopped allowing dual sport conversions in 2004:foul:

My '98 was non-op when I purchased it, just green stickered. I put it back on the road this year with a plate with no problem. But like I said it was non-op so at one time it was registered with plate during it's life. I would still call DMV and try to get yours on the road.

thanks guys. Maybe I'll contact the DMV, but I will not get my hopes up.

He's correct. :thumbsup: However, I have read that some local DMV offices will still allow it out of ignorance and or whatever else might come into play.

In this case, Kommiefornia started the ball rolling on this non sense, and now the feds have picked it up and are spreading it to other states as well. :p

If I cannot convert my 2001 WR, what dualsport lbike would you suggest I purchase? I like something affordable but reliable as I would probably only use it 2-3 times per year.

Well, what I did with my 04 was install all the necessary DMV stuff and pulled the plate off an old bike I have at my parents and hope for the best. I don't ride roads much myself and hope if I ever do get stopped, I get a clueless officer or an understanding one. Until I figure out how to plate it legally however

You can carry insurance on the bike, FYI. I figure that helps as well.

tons of already plated dirt bikes in craigslist.

WR or KTM will be a good choice.

go out of state if possible, there are 49 shots at finding a place less communist than this foresaken land of leaf lickers.. you have a relative living near by at all?

I wouldn't do this in Kommiefornia, because it's a felony. Meaning, BIG TROUBLE if you get caught!:p

I've known of a few guys that have done that and leaf licking rangers wrote them up for failing to register and out of state bike, in state (out of state registered bike with a Kommiefornia driver's license). It's a fix it ticket, but highly problematic since you can't register a dirt bike here.
