I have mine registered in Ohio - what a hoot. Decided to quit babying it and stop trucking it to distant places and just ride it. Really wasn't worried about hurting it as much as I worried about screwing up it up for its most important purpose - great dirt bike.

 Going to ride it to Michigan for a week of UP exploring. Leaving this weekend - approx. 2200mi

My biggest worry is wearing good knobbies out on the road. We need good knobbies here for of road use. A road will kill them in no time flat. But it's nice to have when I go to Colorado or especially to sell the bike. Always worth more once it's tagged.

Have you been pleased with the fuel injection over all, hot start, cold start ect, any lean spots ?

Also what kind of dual sport kit did they install.

Dual Sport kit? Surely you gest ;). Bike runs perfect, stock. Perfect.

Starts perfect no matter what. Only thing I've noticed is a rare decel pop. It does run a bit hot but no coolant overflow as of yet. And best, no emission crap to remove and no clogged up exhaust. It's also very quiet.

Put a Flatlands skid plate on it and have a Rekluse on order.

I just pieced together my own kit... I wanted as little wiring and places for things to fail as possible and wasn't wanting to use the blinkers that came with the kits ... came out awesome

I also have a slight pop on decel, just lean. Going to increase tps slightly, should solve that...

Runs great, always starts up easy... fan does it's job..

Here in CT, I went right to the DMV after the dealer & got my street plate.

 

My 500 XCWs MSO didn't have "For off road use only" stamped on it. No problems.

 

:ride:

You could do the same in AZ, but local law enforcement will pull you over if they don't see at least one mirror when on the street. A mirror, horn, and brake light are "required" by law here, but they are not required or checked to get a plate on it.

If I ride on the street I put a mirror or two on it. Hi/ lo beam will never happen. Brake light most likely will never happen. I don't really ride it on the street. Only use it Colorado to get from trail to trail. Here I won't waste my knobbies getting on a street.

I just got my 2013 450 XC-W inspected last night. Now I just need to find the time to get to the state and pick up the plate. We installed the Sicass Racing street kit without the turn signals and it came out great.

I had to go the bonded title route with an mso to get my plate here in Vermont. Cost me 167 bucks for my title/registration and 35 bucks for an inspection. Need to invest in a set of sm wheels for the street, you won't regret it haha

In Texas we have yearly inspections, no way to get around such required parts. That includes required inspection just to get a plate. I guess Hillbilly states have the bennis>G

My 05 450 MXC said cross country on the MSO. $20 dollars later walked out of the Georgia "hillbilly" DMV with a plate!
