streetlegal; What's a good year to buy for Dual sport.

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 2005 525 EXC that I'm beginning to believe is impossible to make street legal in CA. I hear conflicting stories, some saying yes but mostly saying its not possible.  If anyone has been successful for this model/year, please let me know.

If I can't get my bike street legal, I'm prepared to buy a clean used KTM 500, 525 or 530 that is. I've been told the 2008 is a year I should stay away from.  Does anyone have advice on any other "street legal" years I should look for or stay away from?

Thanks,

Anything 2007 and older will not be able to reg for street use. Bikes need to be street legal from factory.
