  1. damn. looks like its time to buy a new bike, or one already plated.
  2. I've done a little cheat before with non CARB parts and though i'd try to pull one past the dmv by doing this. Could someone take a photo of the CARB/EPA sticker thats on the frame. The people I talked to at the DMV seem rather ignorant of the laws/rules and i think I can make the sticker, slap it on the frame and have it inspected. Im isnt guaranteed to work but the dude at the dmv said all the look for are the turns/lights etc and the carb/epa sticker. That's basically what ive done for car headers that didnt have a carb EO number. I took the EO number for a company that had the apporval, made a sticker/plaque, put it in the engine bay and had it smogged at a test only. Worked flawlessly. Now whether or not that will work with the bike remains to be seen. I hope that I get a uninformed dmv rep when i go to do this. He didnt even mention the VIN number deal or anything. I guess it's worth a try before I go and buy a WR400 frame and swap my 426 shit over. Maybe I should just go and buy a KTM 690SM
  3. yeah i figured as much regarding the "plate number" but I was hoping it to be a mess-up on the DMV's part. Im fairly sure WR's are the only street registrable bikes in cA from Yamaha's stable. So im going to search for a WR frame and give it a go that route.
  4. OK, I know all the basic info about street titling a YZ and the 8th digit on the VIN info but I was looking at my title today and saw OK, It say's OFF HIGHWAY but it has a plate number under the spot on the title that says plate number. Does that mean I could go down to the DMV and pay the june reg and request the plate? I've never looked at a dirt bike title before so it kinda threw me this AM. Lastly, what would my chances be of getting a WR400 frame, swapping all my YZ shit over to it , requesting a new title and street registering it if im not able to get it via the first method.

    DS650 Jetting Help... Please Eddie!

    thanks eddie, im gonna dig into it this weekend.
  7. I took my carb into the local Can-am/Bombardier dealer to have it tanked and thoroughly cleaned. Upon getting it back at idle the header glows red rather quickly. I dont know what they monkeyed with. I even heard what sounded like a bad ping on start-up. Seems to run alright. Kinda soft bottom end with a massive punch on the mid/top end. Here's the specs on the bike 43mm Mikuni K&N Filter, open top airbox Trinity Racing Full Exhaust Port and Polish Head 12:1 Compression Piston It didnt glow before hand, so Im just going to get all new jetting, and redo the carb per whatever specs you think work best Eddie.

    Baja 250 on a quad.

    I've set myself a 2 year goal to ride the baja 250 on a quad. Im not trying to be a podium finisher, just a dude that crosses the line in the alloted time. Anyone here done it or worked as part of a chase team? I'd like to talk logistics and whatnot.

    i'm changing sides...

    the newer LC4 engines are really reliable. Might be thinking of the race bikes. I've heard nothing but good things about the newer gen LC4 engines. Some slight oil leaks and a few headgasket problems, but all covered by the dealer if problem should arise.

    sold my flat black SM, and should be picking up a black KTM 690SM next week. so stoked to be on a SM-ish again. First mod, 950SM headlight and front fender, then removal of the diesel stack exhaust. I'll post pics and whatnot when i get it. I suppose im gonna have to learn the KTM forum now.
