But then you're paying full registration fees, plus the ohv sticker. Why not make it so that it only costs you like 30.00 instead?

Since when? You can just buy the sticker. $25 I think. That's what I did. Did my registration complete separate at another time. Maybe I am misunderstanding. You're registering primarily as OHV I suppose.

It was my understanding that the State Trust Land required a permit above and beyond the usual OHV sticker?

It was explained previously. If you purchase the OHV sticker at the time you register the bike and select the "primarily off road" option, your registration fee will be $4.50 as opposed to full price. So, not matter what bike you're registering the fee will be $29.50. If I had registered my 950 using your method I would have had to pay the full registration fee of $100+ and then purchase the OHV sticker for an additional $25. Using the method that is being described here, it was $29.50.

Much better deal.

No, not for crossing/transiting.

If you plan on camping, etc. Then yes, I believe you need the "full" permit. $50 or something for a family, something like that.

""Arizona Law requires all vehicles used off highway and meeting the criteria listed below to display an off-highway vehicle decal.

Criteria (All three requirements must be met.):

The vehicle is designed by the manufacturer primarily for travel over unimproved terrain.
The vehicle has an unladen weight of eighteen hundred pounds or less.
The vehicle has been issued an Arizona license plate.""

Probably ought to start with the questions a LEO is going to ask.

What state is your DL from?

Where do you live?

The key is to get the OHV sticker first (select 'primarily off road'). Then go through the registration process after that. Pretty simple when you do it on line (I registered 4 bikes this way in the last 6 months).

If at the MVD, I guess you could force them to do it one step at a time (IE: Transfer the title, stop. Get OHV sticker, stop. Register bike, stop).

I am more confused than ever now. My understanding is, when registering my DRZ400, full on road registration does not need an OHV sticker to go offroad. Either here or even California.

What's confusing to me is why someone would elect to pay more to register their bike when they could get an OHV sticker and declare that said bike is primarily ridden off-road.


And good luck tryin' to convince the ones who enforce this shit that a DRZ was not built with the intent for OHV use... They'll wanna' see a sticker on that there bike.

I've been stopped once at a check point ran by USFS-LEO's on Reddington Rd, and stopped a few times in various locations by Game/Fish cops... in all instances they were making sure I had that OHV sticker. They also made sure I was using a spark arrestor.

Do what yer comfortable with, but if the tag you pay to put on that DRZ costs more than $28/Yr., gettin' a OHV sticker and declaring "primarily ridden off-road" should be a no brainer.

they are the stock Dunlop 908's which are fantastic in the dirt....however they are wicked squirrelly on the highway...or in wind...or on cattle guards...or well you get the point. the ramps merging I-10 and I-19 are grooved.... these tires can be a lot of fun in that grooved concrete.

I have a set of Heidenau k60's on order from Zen-Moto, which will be spooned on as soon as these Dunlops are roasted. im guessing i have about 800 miles left in them. i dont think i have ever gotten a set of stock tires to last more than 1500 miles and these wont be the first.
