Does "Street Legal" require directionals?

Recommended Posts

Was looking at a 2001 XR400 being sold and the seller described it as "street legal". Yet on further inspection, it does not have any directionals. There is a horn, headlight, and tail light/brake light but no directionals. Could it really be street legal if it has no directionals? Thanks.

It depends on your state.  For instance, in the People's Democratice Republic of New Jersey where I am from does not require directionals or a speedometer but brake lights, headlight, and horn are required.  So go to your state's Motor Vehicle Department's website and look up Inspection.  Also don't forget to check if it has DOT approved tires.

Yes, but it depends on your state, and in some states it depends on what was on the bike when it was first sold.

Often, turn signals must work if they are there. In PA, you must have a mirror and horn, in addition to lights.

Note: a lot of police don't know the details of the law, so you need to check with the DMV, inspection office, etc.
