Green Sticker from Dealer?

Just bought a new WR250F. Was I supposed to get a green sticker from the dealer, or will it come in the mail? If it will be in the mail, does the dealer paperwork suffice to ride?

Thanks

The battery was fully charged and the distilled water was spot on. Is there any hope for the battery or has it most likely dried out?

Not sure. I replaced the battery last year and fired it up for a minute then let it sit, because I'm cool like that. :)

I'm assuming draining the tank is a must though?

Desert Racing on a YZ125 - Highest Speed in Late 90's?

Just curious, what do you figure the fastest someone could reliably go on a YZ125 in the desert around 1996? This guy was a district 39 expert racer. What do you figure the top speed really was?
