Won't be any more hassle than any dealing with DMV. I am sure it is a 50 state bike, but even if it was not, it has the required 7,500 miles.


Find the emission sticker on the bike. Most likely they will want to see it.

You will be required to show the DMV agent the Meets CA emissions sticker or 50 state compliant sticker whichever it has. If its been removed all bets are off. I went thru a PITA bringing in a KTM 950 from AZ because I couldent find this sticker even when the KTM manual stated ALL 2005 KTM bikes are 50 state compliant. They will check the Vin#s and look at the engine numbers and frame numbers to verify against the title and to issue a Ca title. Far as the exhaust they never asked, looked, started it or seemed to care about mods.

What they said. Just locate your fed emissions sticker ahead of time so you can make it available to the inspector. Some times they are are in odd places, like under the tank or behind a trim piece.

You'll have to declare a purchase price and pay sales tax here, less what you can show you paid when you bought it.

It's not difficult transfering a street legal bike, it's trying to plate something that was never legal to plate here in the first place.

As mentioned, sticker & frame + engine #s are suppose to match! If you can verify that then you'll be fine. I had ordeal with a bike with <7500 miles, and it was painful...

TBH, generally better to buy an in state vehicle, they don't even bother to look at it when you transfer the title.
