  1. Hello all this is my first time posting. I need your help. I recently purchased a DRZ 400 SM off of Ebay and it was shipped here to Bakersfield, CA from Nebraska. I took it to the DMV which they registered the bike then later called me back saying they made a mistake and that the bike didnt have a sticker on the frame signifying that it meets all CA emissions standards. For that they made me strip the license and give it back to them. I want to register my bike in CA so I can ride it but I dont want to modify the engine. DMV even told me that I couldnt modify the engine to pass emissions and get registration. They also told me I couldnt run it up to 7500 miles so that it would count as a used bike. I'm not sure but I think they red flagged my DMV account so that I cant go to any other DMV and try to get it registered. They also sent me a letter saying I need to remove the bike from the state of CA. I love this bike and feel like I've been totally screwed. I'd be grateful for any help you can give me ...and hope that I can find some loophole in order to register my bike. I'd gladly pay anything to get it registered.
