Thank you Jeff for the prompt reply. Gonna hit up CL in Vegas area and register my Dual sport at gramps house hopefully before mid October.

You actually need a model year 2002 or older bike for a non-emissions bike to have a legit Cali plate. The cutoff to get a bike plated was 1/31/04, but it still had to be an '02 or older bike. That's why '03 XRRs are so cheap in Cali, and why the last few sat in dealerships unsellable for a couple years.

But that still won't keep them from eventually scrubbing the reg list and sending you a GFY letter if you weren't the owner of the bike before the cutoff.

I'd probably get the newest emissions-legal KTM that you like and can afford.

That's fine for a 4 stroke, but I want a newer plated 250 or 300 2 smoke . . . seems like for that I need to go out of state.

I think that's what the OP was looking for.

On the other hand, you guys have me interested in looking around on CL and calling my friend in AZ! I was at chaparral the other day and that ($9k) 300xcw is so light, that big tuba pipe looks like it'll get smashed quickly though.

That's not entirely true. Any green sticker bike purchased prior to 1/31/04 was eligible for a plate. I legally plated an '04 KTM 525 EXC which I purchased in 12/03.

The model year 2002 or older I believe relates to plating a 2-stroke. That's when they started implementing the red sticker program and Cali would only let you convert a green sticker bike to dual sport. There are a few plated CR500's out there :-O
