If you have AAA can you try and register it there

AAA can only register vehicles that are already in the CA DMV system. New or out of state no luck.

The FED sticker is used to verify the VIN #. When signing off VIN #s, the DMV or CHP needs to reference points for VIN #s. This is due to the people that steal vehicles and do VIN switches.

All vehicles in California are required to have the emissions label. The 7500 mile rule is what determines the tax on the vehicle. If under 7500 miles, the vehicle is considered new and you will pay the tax required on the vew vehicle. IF over 7500 miles, the vehicle is considered used.

Go to the CHP and get the bike inspected and verfied that it is road worthy and meets all the requirements for the state of CA.

Went back to the DMV gave them paperwork end of story registed...

Try the DMV in Hemet they seemed very easy going and were helpful

AND...


a new vehicle must meet CA standards on the EPA sticker (must be 50 state). If you, as a CA resident buy an out of state bike with less than 7,500 miles, just make sure the sticker says it meets CA standards.

You're still going to pay sales tax on used

The whole reason for doing this was that people were circumventing the smog laws by buying unavailable (in CA ) vehicles new out of state, then bringing them into CA to register....

Lots of cracks in the system. My sister picked up a Ninja 250 with 7k on it. Had a Calfornia plate on it from last owner. She transfered it with AAA no problems. Only when I gave it a tune up did I discover it was did not have an EPA sticker, have evap crap, and was not a 50 state model. It never was. It somehow fell through the cracks over several owners.
Go figure.

I have AAA just so I don't have to deal with the DMV. They have fixed a lot paperwork issues for me where the DMV would not give me the time of day.

I don't know all the details of what AAA will register for street bikes. But they are out of the dirt bike business. Pasadena AAA says "dirtbike, go to DMV". I think it has to do with too many people trying to get street plates for their dirt bikes.

`76 Gold Wing I bought was parked in `81. I had pink/reg. Drove it to AAA and they said it was out of their system. Guy had to come out to varify eng/chassis numbers matched. I paid and got an `08 sticker. (sigh)

Two weeks later DMV sent me back all the paperwork with an option of showing up with the bike for them to see it or CHP. CHP said all was done correctly by AAA and all he could do is varify what'a already been varified. I dred going to DMV. Been two months, and if I didn't have three other bikes to play with, I'd get right on it.

WOW, that really sucks that you have to go through that level of effort to register a bike.

yeah, I wish the rest of the states would keep their kooks to themselves instead of sending them all to California. (Boxer is from NY)

If you think registering a bike in Cali is bad, Try running a business here...

Now that I'm thinking about it I need to go throw up...
