After reading this entire thread I decided I'd join in on the fun. I'm looking at a non running 2005 DRZ400E for cheap (well not real cheap). Besides plating it ill need the lower it 2" and install an"S" subframe. Than maybe a 19" front wheel?? Stay tuned.

Thumb Grandfathered Plates ??

Hi, I want to introduce myself after 20 years of chasing fish and game I got the off-road bug again and liking different things than most brought home a couple Yamaha Bigwheels, not fast-but fun.
One was plated in 1985 by an employee of the dealership and has had current tabs since. It's in great shape and although it does not have DOT rated tires currently (they now have them in correct sizes).
It just has mirrors and a brake light.
Am I in danger of losing the plate to a hot headed patrolman?
would the '28 yr grandfather' count as the bike has not been changed.?
I would not take it on the highway but to use trailhead to trailhead and on side roads its perfect cheap fun.I also have led blinkers/relay/horn/switches to add now for legality..

Thankyou to tod701 for fighting the good fight regarding these laws.

Although I now have the urge for a more capable bike after going and watching the 'Urban Asault ' riders..

Keep your tabs current and most likely all you could get is an equipment related ticket.

Worse case it might be possible to get the plate yanked, but I highly doubt it.

It's official, now legal. I don't have to worry about the cops chasing me home anymore.





Big thanks to MASH in Spokane for making it all go smoothly.

Nice, congratulations, although I'm not sure you don't need to worry about cops chasing you anymore

Out of state transfer

I am looking at a '01 KTM 520 that has a street title in CO. Does anyone know if the WA DOL will just transfer that over to a new WA title or will I have to have a dual sport kit added and then have an inspection.

Coming in from out of state, I believe it will require an inspection, mainly to verify that it's not stolen. That's always been the case with cars for me.

Don't know if you can slip by with a dual sport kit in the inspection or not, it depends partly on the VIN (0 or 3 in the 8th digit) whether the state considers it OEM street legal.
