How to I get a plate for my WR in OHIO

Thinking about getting my WR450 (04) licensed with a plate an all in Ohio.

Does anyone have experience in doing this? is it difficult to get done?

Do I need some type of state inspection?


My brother took his off road title for his XR400 down to the North Olmsted DMV and said he wanted plates. They took his off road title and $25.00 later they handed him a on road title and a plate. Simple as that!

You go to the title branch and sign an affidavit saying you have made the bike street legal and they swap your "off-road" title for a normal looking "street" title. Then you can go get your plates.

Not every title agency will do this, the first one told me I had to get a state police inspection, so I when to another branch and no problem. XR400 street titled and plates.

      Hi guys, I live in California and there is possibility of me moving to Mason/Ohio. 
      California has strict emissions laws where most dirt bikes are never street legal. 
      Example : 
      Enduro KTM450, Husky 450 -- Can get a plate, street legal
      Yamaha, Honda Enduro bikes -- mostly green sticker meaning it can ride OHV areas all year round, not street legal and cant be made street legal
      Two strokes/MX bikes -- red sticker, private property only or 6 months out of the year(winter) OHV areas.
      How are things in Ohio? Can I get a plate for a lets say two stroke Husky TE300? I have seen threads where people were talking about plating dirt bikes in ohio but the thread is from 2007 and a lot changes in 11 years. What happens if I bring an out of state bike to Ohio, do I take the title to motor vehicles and get a new one?
