orv sticker placement

50 posts in this topic

dumb question. but i have never owned a dirt bike in the state of washington. so the dmv gave me my orv stickers when i registered, but did not explain anything. they gave me two stickers that look like mini license plates, and the small month and year stickers like you would normally put on the back license plate of your car. where do they go? i dont want to have to put them on top of my fenders and cover up my good looking stickers. and also, i am prone to "breaking" fenders if you know what i mean. where do these babies go? do i have to have them out for the world to see? why couldn't it be one simple sticker like the state of oregon that you can put up on your forks? :thumbsup:

and when you are riding...do you have to carry the registration paper with you?

sorry for the newb...ness

I put mine inside my radiator shroud on the frame next to the VIN. I also had them on the top of my fork tube, just under the top triple clamp (dont put them at the bottom triple clamp or you will tear it apart when you slide out your forks). I am not sure if there is a hard and fast rule about where to put them but I have been riding Wa trails with DNR checks and as long as they can see the ORV sticker and the serialized month/date tab you will be ok. No need to take the registration with you, never been asked for it in my 20 years of riding here.

I put mine on the frame near the VIN. Of course they expired three years ago.

I have mine on a piece of PVC with part of it cut out so it snaps around my fork tube.

Stick em' up Gregoire's ass....

Exactly!!!

I always put them in the hardest spot to see, Like behind a # plate or headlight housing. but then I am kind of an ******* too.

If you do like the directions say they will be gone with the first power wash

so do you have to have both of them on there i.e both sides of the frame by the vin...or both fork tubes? i am sure they are meant to have one front and back? do you guys just put one on and the month and year stickers, or do you put both the orv stickers on your bike?

I usually just have one ORV sticker on mine and the month/year stickers below or above to ORV sticker.

I have always just put on the year and month on the steering stem for years and never been hassled, till this year at rimrock where they had about 500 sheriffs on hand. They wanted the big ones on each side plate. When i told them we replace plastic and numbers during the year they said no excuse, to get new ones each time. Let us race though. guess we will bring them and some tape if we go to rimrock next year.

I just put one of the license plate stickers on each fork tube under the top triple clamp and put the month/year stickers just underneath one of those on one side. I never carry my registration. Like someone else said, as long as the law can see the stickers somewhere they leave you alone. Make sure you have a spark arrestor if you are going anywhere near trees, because they check those too. One particularly "thorough" sheriff deputy in Naches stopped our whole group for 45 minutes while he went through everything. He also gave the guys with plated KTM's total hell. That was before they called back all the plates of course.

Both you guys should write a letter to those fs ranger district's who waste our money on those wanna be barney fife rambo orv rent a cops. They make it pretty easy to support a broke orv program vs. one flush with cash.

I think DOL says one on the front and one on the back, renewal sticker on the rear.

Or one on each side.

I could be wrong but I think the DOL regs allow you to put the numbers on the bike without using the sticker, the renewal sticky is the important item.

Thru the years I've usually put the stickers on each side of the steering head or on the side panels, and I've seen a lot of bikes with the stickers on the fork tubes but if both if the tubes don't have reduced diameters between the triples or different diameters it is hard to remove the tubes if the stickers are between the triples. On my last bike I debated how often I might replace fenders or number plates and the cost of new stickers, finally gave up and put one on the number plate and one on the rear fender.

I cant even find anything about it on the DOL website. Nothing about cost, requirements, or anything.

Same here. My most recent bike was my first one that I had to get ORV tabs for, when I picked up the tabs I was surprised to not find any instructions what-so-ever on where to put them.

No problem I thought, I'll find the info online.

Nope. Nada. Zilch.

I stuck em on my fork tubes.

Just waiting for the day I get hassled about where they are "supposed" to be applied.

What a joke.

And still debating whether or not I will bother renewing them when the time comes.

      At the Tahuya Focus meeting tonight DNR told us that a jeep route in the Tahuya Forest has been rerouted onto a 1/4 mile stretch of the Tahuya River Trail due to a failed culvert in the old jeep trail.  The section has been reposted with the proper signage showing the stretch is open to all user groups.

      Who lives and rides in Shelton, Belfair, Tahuya, Bremerton..etc? 
      Heading up there to scope out the scene to find a place to live, and wouldn't mind meeting up with some single track riders.
      Basically want to ride at the house, or ride to the trails. Is that possible without being in a 1 horse town?
      Any good clubs to talk to in the areas?
      Any opinions are greatly appreciated!
       
      Cheers,

      Webb Takes Everett EnduroCross Win
      EVERETT, WA – October 15, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Cody Webb took his third straight main event win at the Rekluse Clutch EnduroCross in Everett, Washington. The FMF KTM rider took over the lead on the third lap and held a comfortable margin to the end. SRT Offroad backed Trystan Hart finished a strong second to back up his round one podium and fourth consecutive top five. Rockstar Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker had a tough main event with a costly crash on lap one but managed to come back to finish third.
      The top thirteen Super EnduroCross riders earned their way into the gate pick qualifier and Haaker took the win to earn a bonus point. He had a back and forth battle with Webb and just when it appeared that Webb was going to take the top spot, he went down in the river rock section to allow Haaker to take over the lead and win.
      The bracket race groups the top 12 riders into single lap head to head battles until the final two riders face off. For the fourth consecutive race, Webb and Haaker faced off in the final. Haaker got the jump on the start but Webb made an aggressive pass in the rock pile to take over the lead and held Haaker off to the finish. This gave Webb a bonus point to offset the one Haaker got in the qualifier.
      The start of the main event was chaotic as Haaker did a nose wheelie into the first turn when he locked bars with another rider. Hart came out of turn one with the lead ahead of Spain’s Joan Pau Segura and Webb. Haaker’s bad start put him deep into the pack and then he crashed in the wood pit on lap one to drop to the back of the fifteen-rider field.
      Hart led the first lap and then Webb worked his way past both Segura and Hart on lap three to take the lead. Webb and Hart both took the joker lane early in the race and held onto the top two spots. This allowed Webb to ride off to his third win in four races.
      Hart held second until Haaker passed him on lap eleven but Haaker had not yet taken the joker lane setting up a tense final three laps. Haaker waited until the final lap to take the joker lane and Hart stayed close enough to take second back on the final turn.
      Cory Graffunder put in his best result of the season to take fourth position despite sitting in fourteenth at the end of lap one. The tall Canadian thrives on tough tracks and this one fit the bill. Ty Tremaine rounded out the top five on his RPM KTM and he too had to recover from a bad first lap that saw him in 11th.
      Beta’s Max Gerston finished sixth while riding with some injuries sustained in a crash just four weeks before. Cooper Abbott rode his Purvines DA8 Yamaha to seventh. A crash pushed him back from a battle for fifth. Kyle Redmond rode his SRT Husqvarna to eighth. GasGas backed Noah Kepple finished ninth after a terrible start. Wally Palmer rounded out the top ten on his SRT backed KTM.
      Ty Cullins, Tyler Kinkade, Cody Miller, Quinn Wentzel and Segura finished 11th to 15th respectively. Segura rode in third for half the race and looked solid until he broke a chain.

      Cody Webb:
      “I struggled with my starts all day today and my face was riding Colton’s rear tire going into the first turn, I am not sure if we locked bars but he was doing a stopie,” Webb said. “I tried to put in strong laps because I did not know what was going on with Colton and I know he rides strong all the way to end. It is great to get another win.”

      Trystan Hart had another great ride to take a career best second in Everett. Photography: Tanner Yeager
      Trystan Hart:
      “This is kind of my home race since it is closest to my house in Canada,” Hart said. “It was so great to have so many of those fans and family come down here to cheer me on. And I got the holeshot and led for a little bit. I knew that Colton had not taken the joker lane yet when he passed me so I stayed as close as possible and got him back on the last lap.”

      Colton Haaker:
      “I was down in the firewood section and stuck in somebody’s bike,” Haaker said. “I got a good start and when I put the brakes on I hooked handlebars with somebody and that put me into a nose wheelie. I rode the best I could and it wouldn’t have mattered (if I took the joker lane earlier), that what happens when you have to pass that many riders.”
