That is the official stance. You can sometimes sneak them by, but there is a good chance the plate may get pulled. That whole deadline in 2002 is why plated dirtbikes carry such a high value here in CA.

Maybe register it in AZ or NV?

You are looking at about $350 for a decent dualsport kit, something like Baja Designs. It should have all the gear you need to get it solid, except the mirrors.

I know UT and CO are the easiest. Never tried Nevada since I didnt live there or know anyone who did.

Another question: Is there any real difference in billet clutch baskets between brands? There is the Hinson, Barnett, Wiseco and a few others. Not a huge difference in price amongst the batch.

Eek Head gasket?

Has anyone ever blown a head gasket on their BRP? Toll mine on the trails a couple weeks ago, laid it over a couple times, later while cruising along the trail an antifreeze bomb goes off between my legs. Had the radiators pressure checked and they came back good. Can't see any obvious clues on any of the hoses that would warrant a big and sudden leak like that. Wondering if anyone has had this happen to them or have any ideas about it. Thanks.

My brother had his XR650R plated in AZ, and he didn't need turn signals for it. In fact I don't think it even had a brake light. He lives in UT now and has to put on a dual sport kit to get it plated here. (I think he's going to go with a cheap one from rockymountainatvmc.com )

High flow exhaust canister = after market slip on (eg. T4 ProCircuit), or HRC Tip on stock exhaust, FMF slip on

Large Diameter Header & Exhaust canister = after market FULL exhaust, from the head to the tip. This could also be a T4, since you can get just the slip on or the full exhaust.

To my knowledge, no.

The only externally adjustable carb that i'm aware of is the Edelbrock Quicksilver carb. Which there is one for sale on the front page of the Parts section right now.

Nevada is way easier than Utah, except Vegas and Reno areas. You can pretty much do it over the phone.

Check that your overflow hose is connected to the valve. Might have shot out on top of the rad.

The hose should connect there and run down to your overflow by your left foot.

Axle doesn't turn and shouldn't wear. Likely your bearings are shot. Replace them.

Grasp your wheel at the top and force it back and forth. If it moves your bearings are done and both should be replaced.

Don't buy "cheap" bearings. It's not worth it. Try to find quality brand name, sealed bearings (SKF, FAG, etc). Depending on what your ride, we often pack the bearings full of grease to prevent water penetration. Still only last a season-1.5 season.

Why would this info help you at all?

Just ride it and do proper maintenance. Not much you can do other then that AND you get it ride it an enjoy it!

Change oil, replace worn parts, twist the throttle.
