Plate a dirtbike

Finally got around to getting my klx 300 street legal. Inspection with the state patrol in Montrose took about 20 minutes from the time I walked in. No problems. Another 20 minutes and $116.00 dollars at the Delta clerk and I am ready to roll. The trooper did check everything on the inspection sheet.

Now you need to buy the OHV permit or registration so you can ride your converted dirt bike on dirt

Residency Required?

Ok I went through about 30 pages and did not find the answer.

Do you have to be a CO resident to plate your dirt bike?

I know most states allow nonresidents to plate vehicles in their states, (look at all the snowbirds in AZ and I know for a fact SD allows out of state people to plate vehicles in the state)

Can I have an Iowa address and take my bike to CO, get all the requirements completed and get a plate?

Thanks

Short answer? No.

DMV requires a Colorado address and I'm pretty sure a Colorado drivers license. But theoretically, you could sell your bike to a friend in Colorado, go through the conversion/inspection/dmv process, and then he might "decide" to sell the bike back to you. It would then have a title and most likely transferable to your state as a titled, street legal bike. You'll pay tax and registration fees on both transfers, though likely minimal if you sell if for a small amount.

I've heard this several times, and decided to try and find out more info...

I started a new thread here as this topic does seem to come up frequently. I don't know that my info is 100% accurate, but it is a good start.

Without reading this whole thread, I decided to call the Jeffco DMV. The person stated I'd need a BOS that said Off-Road Only, a VIN verification, a certificate of compliance, and insurance. As titling is handled by the counties, but overseen by the state, that should be true across the state.

A JeffCo deputy sheriff stopped by my house within 20 minutes of me calling them for a VIN verification on an out of state bike recently. I imagine they will do the same for the dirt bike conversion. You must be in unincorporated Jeffco for them to provide this service.

Good info. The thread below has more recent and accurate information on the topic.
