Beware if you want to street legal a non street legal bike in Las Vegas

It isn't going to happen anymore. Today I road my 2009 KTM EXC over to the DMV on N. Decatur. The DMV employee came out to do the VIN check. He then asked for the green slip, which i provided (I was still smiling and being nice.)

He then asks me for my EPA certification sticker. At which point my blood pressure shot up to 200. I said listen "I know where you are trying to go with this, and I am not going down that road." He replies "we are cracking down on these things." (As some Harley goes by with open pipes...) So I reply, "I have a vehicle built by a factory to US EPA specs and I have a temporary registration already, do you do this to all the Fords, Chevys and every other factory built mode of transportion? He ignored me and again asked for the proof. I said " It is on the frame under the gas tank." Which it is... He says

"well how hard is it to take the tank off?" I roll my eyes and explain the process. He goes inside to get tools and then decides it will be easier to call KTM in OHIO. To make a long story short I am $170.00 poorer but I have a plate, registration and the title will be here in a few weeks. Just wanted to share my story. Later

So you are saying that getting a WR450 plated in Nevada can't happen anymore? What legislation has passed for this to happen?:p

As of 2009 the DMV guys are now needing proof of EPA compliance. Which on the KTM EXC's is a silver sticker under the gas tank. As an individual I don't know how one could ever get this sort of thing. This is not a smog check.

That is weird because on my ktm on the neck it sayd for closed course only, because of noise. it to is an exc.
