I'm sure I've seen the big tail light versions for sale as road reg'd ADR models.
The following pics show the ADR taillight (with the gap aorund it in the rear guard) on my bike and the non-ADR taillight (and new rear guard) my husband fitted to his bike.

What ARE those rubber thingys on the stands?
They're a 'safety' thingy that are supposed to kick up your sidestand if you happen to leave them down when you ride off - they don't work!

Mine was simply loctited ON, with a plastic pin stuck in the switch.
I removed the 2 screws on the cover, flipped it open, and prodded around with a tooth pick to loosen the loctite, then eventually found the plastic pin and removed it. Switch works perfectly now.
Thanks for the info - we now have two working headlight switches!! The switch on my bike was lightly glued and the pin was easy to extract. By contrast, the switch on husband's bike was heavily glued with two pieces of cut cable-tie plus a pin.

Did NSW briefly have a regulation that all new bikes had to have a headlight fixed to ON?
ADR 19 was amended in 1992 to introduce mandatory "hard-wired" headlights for motorcycles - low-beam headlights were required to illuminate whenever the engine was running

This requirement was rescinded in 1996, due mainly to pressure from motorcycle lobby groups.

As such, only motorcycles manufactured during the period 1992-1996 must have automatic ‘headlights on’ (although I'm not sure many RTA/roadworthy inspectors would know this).


The following is a link to a PDF of the ADR page from the parts list: CTX200 ADR Parts List

@ Blokette, your tailliight is straighter than mine!
Is your taillight recess (under the rubber seal) cut really rough? Mine looks like it was done with an electric kitchen carving knife.
"the switch on husband's bike was heavily glued with two pieces of cut cable-tie plus a pin"
Oooh! Cable tie AND a pin! Glad to know that mine isn't the only bike that was ADR'd with bits from the bin :)
Whoever is ADRing these bikes needs a kick in the nuts.
Thanks for the parts list PDF.

Why would somebody buy an ADR CTX200 and remove the indicators?

Got the CTX RWC'd and registered. No turning back now ($500+ in paperwork!).
Off to get the big yellow L in a couple of weeks.



Trying to do the right thing and get a refund on the remaining NSW registration and send it back to the previous owner. VicRoads reckon it's a "simple process".

Nah - mine's rougher than that - hacked is a more apt description!

Maybe they broke them - or wanted to save them from getting broken ...

Sorry to bring back an old thread...
Just a tip for anyone with an ADR CTX200 - check all your indicators to make sure that the compliance morons haven't installed them UPSIDE DOWN.
I noticed today that my rear indicators had the drain holes pointing towards the sky. Easily fixed by swapping them over L<>R.

I've had my L's for 3 days, and have done 200km in the bush on the CTX200.
It's performed way above my expectations. First gear is EPIC. I never thought crawling could be so much fun.

]Many years I brought a WR200, that Yamaha dealers were selling in registered form.

These were brought into Australia and modified locally to meet ADR requirements, by Geoff Ballard I believe. I don't think these were done by Ballards,they were done by Bert flood who was the only authorised importer of the WR200 because they were such a fantastic bike,not even Yamaha could import them,AFAIK,cheers Nev
