Your list would be a lot simpler if you deleted all bikes 2002 or just deleted the year designation on the list.  All these bikes are green stickered.

This reminds me of the approved firearms list.  California government is so pathetic.  Such a nanny state.

Does anyone ever pay attention to green sticker law? I literally don't know one person that does.

Can plate the green sticker in CA so some might care.

Of course, Yamaha is getting outta the green sticker business in 2018. Haven't heard if the 450X is still green for '18, but I haven't looked either ;)

It's almost 2019. I guess petitions don't do much. Are we any closer to having the red-sticker bullshit riding limitation abolished? I'll get a new bike either way but a red-sticker still pisses me off.

Yup in 2024 and any bike that doesnt fit carb standards will be banned from public use and anything built prior to that will be grandfathered in for year round riding.

Cool, although I thought I read something about 2022. They're taking their sweet time. 90% of my riding is in the woods so maybe a red-sticker won't really effect me. I plan to go to a bunch of new areas next year though. I suppose fuel injection is helping in ways.

It’s all a game by the state. My 08 ktm250xcf is green sticker, while my 06yz250f is red?🤯

Because your YZ is a track bike that Yamaha focused on power and didn't bother to get it certified as Green.  KTM met the spec for a trail bike and took the time and spent the money to get it green stickered for you.

Rules were the same for both companies. You are comparing apples and oranges.

KTM's 250sxf gets the same treatment as the yz250f.

Still doesn’t make sense. The 07ktm250xcf I had the year before was red! I was told by dmv, that if the vin number starts with the letter a or a number 2or less it’s a green sticker. Anything beyond that is red. After 2002 makes and models

It’s California.  It doesn’t have to make sense.

It makes perfect sense...  especially since DMV employees are notoriously wrong...  and you appear unclear on the subject too.  A Red sticker bike has a C or a 3 in the eighth digit. 

Bottomline this has been settled in this state for 15 years...  no point in going back and hashing it out at this late date...  you bought a track bike manufactured well after the red sticker program was running.  That's on you.  As the red sticker green sticker program dies you just might get a year round sticker in a few years...  assuming you still wanna ride what will be a 20 year old bike by then.  Your call...  as was the choice to buy a red sticker bike in the first place. :doh:

What ever mr know it all who definitely don’t! I’ve been there with dmv a couple times over this and I understand English. Trust me it’s a of. I’ve just come to the realization that if I want to ride one of the red sticker bikes in a time when I can’t around town just gives me better reason to go adventure further out. I ain’t scared !
