Just out of curiosity ... is it really that hard to get a WR 'plated' in the US of A. In Australia the WR's have been coming over here for years with a compliance plate and ADR (Australian Design Rules) specifications. Anyone can walk into a dealer (with enough cash) and just ride one away fully legal. They come complete with Headlight (high and low beam), Tail-light, Brake light (operated by front and back brakes), indicators, horn, mirror, keyed ignition, DOT Tyres and a quiet exhaust. I'm sure that Yamaha Australia have done their homework and found that they would sell very few of these things if it was a 'red sticker' item in Australia. How many more would they sell in the USA if it was 'green' ? Husky's, KTM's, Suzuki's and Honda's are the same story - even 2 strokes are no problem and the KTM 300 is a big seller here (and rightly so) Is there some reason that Yamaha does not (want to) comply ?
