Yes, they fit just fine. You might have to do some minor modifications, but nothing serious.

You can also tap it lightly with your spoke wrench. It will ring if it's right; if it sounds dull it's too loose.

It's worth a try. They will send everything back including your check, if they decline to register it. You will probably need a VIN verification, so might as well get that done first.

The XR is out then. Not street legal.
I recommend the TW200. It is not uncommon to find one in good condition for $1000 or less.

It is under 300cc and originally street legal. Therefore as long as there are no liens nor stolen vehicle reports associated with the VIN, you should have no problem registering it with Vermont.
