CA DMV to Issue Plates?
 
I came across a thread somewhere and someone had heard a rumor that California will start issuing plates like the good ol' days again sometime in the future. Anyone have any information on this?

No foolin'! I really can't remember what thread it was in. It might have been a completely different forum actually. I think I was looking into something else at the time and didn't think to bookmark the page. I searched the Google for a while earlier trying to find it and came up empty handed but figured if there was any truth to it someone in here would know more.

Just found this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=817413

Pretty recent and no mention of anything getting better in the future.

Not unless CARB gets defunded or dismantled, and that's never gonna happen in this liberal state. Them and the Coastal Commision just need to be shut down. I'm sure not holding my breath.

You're not gonna get a plate for anything that doesn't have a certification from California Air Resources Board. And it costs about thirty grand to get one.

BMW f'd that up when they came out with the G450X so they couldn't sell them here. By the time they got their cert everybody had already figured out they were just so-so, and it killed the model. Ship everything over to Husqvarna and let them build dualsports.

KTM had TWO models in 2007, basically the same bike: 450 and 525 EXC. Same for '08 I think, then the bigger bikes came along.

It's a California scam.

BTW, they're all wrong over there. If the bike doesn't have a CARB certification sticker saying it's legal for on highway use in CALIFORNIA you cannot plate it here. Unless you find an idiot dmv clerk or can fudge paperwork. Or pay off a dmv agent. Some of the below board stuff gets done all the time.

Get a plate in AZ and ride it here. Till you get caught. Then take it back to AZ.



EDIT: They finally got it right over on the other thread. Bottom line is you can't get a plate on a bike after 2004 model year that isn't CARB certified. Unless it's a mistake, which does happen all the time. So guys keep trying, some get them. And some get them and then they get taken away. LOL.

If the bike has over 7500 miles and you're moving here from another state, and it was licensed in that other state, and it has Federal EPA sticker, you can get it plated.

Also, the light certification thing is easly gotten form CHIP or even an authorized dealer/light inspector. It's just an affidavit you file with the title application.

Any highway vehicle needs this to be legal.

#2). Ca street legal emissions certification sticker -(not off highway ca certified)
CARB - EPA thing

#3). Federal safety certification label (sticker).
Certifies brakes-gas tank- tires and other things

and I guess one last thing... You must have the pink slip/title with you when you do this.
You will need to surrender your off highway title and they will issue you a new Motorcycle title.

If you don't have all these things in order at the window you will be turned away.

Can't post the link right now but it's on the DMV website.

Can it be done. YES..!!

DMV staff training can work in your favor sometimes.
If at first you don't succeed try a different office.

Technically you are correct. But it's moot cause the only bikes that have those stickers are already factory plated unless you forged your own stickers.

I have gotten 5 bikes registered in the last 6 years. None were inspected for lights or turn signals.
I made a few safety improvements after getting them registered.

1. Moped -- just fill out the paperwork and send it in.

2. 1975 XL175 -- no paperwork, just bill of sale. Not running, just a junk pile.
a) Start at DMV
b) CHP inspection
c) Back to DMV to finish.

3. 1976 XL175 -- no paperwork, just bill of sale. Not running, just a junk pile.
a) Start at DMV - The DMV said I did not have to go the the CHP, but Sacramento said they were wrong.
b) CHP inspection
c) Back to DMV to finish.

4. 1965 CT200 -- no paperwork, just bill of sale. Not running, Brand new engine.
a) Start at DMV
b) CHP inspection
c) Back to DMV to finish.

5. 1964 CT200 -- no paperwork, just bill of sale. Not running, Brand new engine.
a) Start at DMV
b) CHP inspection
c) Back to DMV to finish.

Granted they are old bikes, so maybe that means something.

Yes, the age of the bikes had something to do with it:

https://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/reg_hdbk/ch15/ch15_15.htm

"All new and used off-highway motorcycles converting to on-highway or dual registration must be verified to determine if the motorcycle complies with the ARB regulations.

These regulations require a 1978 year model and newer off-highway motorcycles to have an emission label affixed to the vehicle indicating certification by the manufacturer for on-highway use.
A motorcycle may not be converted to on-highway or dual registration if the motorcycle is:
1978 or newer year model motorcycle with an engine 50cc and larger and no emissions label.
1978 or newer year model with an emissions label indicating off-road or off-highway only."

New rules to go into affect in 1998. I bought my last two stroke in 1997 for this reason. They delayed it until 2002.

If you plated by 2002 you are granfathered forever. If not new rules apply. New rules say you must have Emmissions sticker on bike stating it meets on road use standards. HOWEVER, these labels are not available, so not required on bikes before 1978.

If antiques are your thing plate away. Otherwise go to AZ or NV.
