OHV legislation in CA

Recommended Posts

I have wondered for quite awhile, what are the rules as to where it is legal to ride off road? And where to get more info on these rules.

check out the USFS, BLM, and Calif. State Parks. they will tell you where it is legal to ride on public lands. Calif State Parks used to put out a book that had all public riding areas in Calif in it.

It changes with the fires and slides alot of places are open but hard to get to. Trails are closed every year and more and more enforcement is needed cause of the jerks that refuse to obey a few rules and pick up there own trash :)

I just got back from a meeting in Redding, thay informed the public that they will be registering all trails in the us forests by 2008, and then it will be against the law to ride off these trails. Anyone know of anything similar in other states

Also I am wondering as to the status of the California State Motorized Trails system. Are these purposed green sticker routes or are they legitimately open routes now? If anyone knows....

The parts I have seen on topo maps here in San Diego look more like short trail sections connected by long runs on the street. I thought it would be all off road, but it doesn't look that way.

That is if the Califonia State Motorized Trails system is the same as the SMTS. I just noticed the California part.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
