2-Stroke Riding

Are there places out there to ride a 2-stroke? At the moment my EXC isn't tagged. Trying to get it through all the hoops here to be able to ride National Forest trails.

You need a spark arrestor, and a Montana Permanent registration sticker. registration sticker can be purchased at any DMV office in any county. I think it runs about $30. or so. Spark arrestor is the big thing, but you can find easy slip on types for a two smoke. i used to have a Cobra Sparky that just screwed onto existing two stroke exhaust. Once you have sparky and its registered you can go anywhere that is open to motorized use.

My 300 has a FMF silencer on it. It says on the outside that it contains a spark arrestor. So I just need the sticker, not actual plates?

You dont need plates if you stay off the roads.You do need a plate to ride USFS roads. If it has a head light and tail light, cheap clip on mirror you are good to go for the most part. Registering a bike MT is about $125- 175.00, but It is a permanate plate as long as you own the bike here, and they give off road sticker free when plated.
Montana requires for street legal:
Headlight
taillight
brakelight
horn
mirror
speedometer.
Turn signals
My KTM XCF 450 has a flip up mirror, head and tail light, and speedo. I use hands signals for turn and brake, and have no horn, I take my chances and If I get a ticket so be it. It also depends on the Gal at the DMV that day. Some know bikes and others dont care what you register as long as you have money.

Converted a trail bike to street legal a coupla years ago, pretty sure you don't need turn signals. All else is true though.

Right on Putts, no turn signals required.

The off road permit (sticker) costs $61.50 for MT residents. DMV also has a 30 day permit for non-residents - couldn't find the cost on DMV site

So tired of winter! Put bed-liner on the front plastics of the wee this past week. After putting it back together I just couldn't stand it and took it around the block a few times. New tire on the way, better weather can't get here fast enough!

Laugh Hello 49! Meet up Saturday morning?

Don't pretend you haven't been looking at the forecast. Saturday is gonna be sweeeeet!

Anyone want to meet up at the Spotted Horse in Belgrade at 10am on Saturday? I'm gonna caffeinate, talk about motorcycles, even if I'm by myself, and then head north maybe to Maudlow afterwards.

Hey, there, Monk. (okay, forgot your name...) I just put a new tire on my bike and think that it's ready to go. Meet you at 10 on Saturday at Spotted Horse. I'll PM or email you to give you contact info.

I'm interested, gotta see if Nate @ the bike shop can fit me in to put on a new tire tomorrow, and then what the honey-do list may be at this point. I'll keep you posted.

Hey CL. The boys at the Spotted Horse serve up a mean cuppa joe. Always worth the drive. Met up with Bologna. He and I rode North from Dry Creek Rd about a mile or so past Pass Creek Rd. Still quite a bit of snow on the road and the bare spots were slick as pancake batter. We figured Maudlow wasn't in the cards today. Road back to Bozo via Pass Creek Rd and Rocky Mtn Rd for a little extra mud time.

Since I didn't get going till around 2pm, I rode the Norris, pony, Cardwell loop. Stopped in Lahood for their prime rib bites (exceptional). A little gravel from 287 to Willow Creek too. Had to try out the new Heidenau

The bed liner coating looks great. I've thought about it on my Wee as well and on a few (OK, MAAAANY) other projects. Just never got around to it. Once I finally gather everything up, I might put out a feeler for others wanting a few small odds and ends done. Would probably be more economical to get a few people together to spray a a few small things than one at a time. Then again, maybe they just hang the stuff up at the same time as they are doing a bed and hammer it all out at once.

Where did you get it done? What was the rough price (if you don't mind)? Or did you do it from a "home kit"?

By the way, in your second photo, you've shown your cards! I see your new NOS bottle in the foreground! A bit of fog could even make our little 650s perform like 750s no doubt!
