Okay...so, the new Buell XBRR is supposedly NEVER to be ridden on the street.
Anyone hip to actual rules in California?
What would it take?
I am close to ordering one...but want to know the real deal, and noone at the dealership/ DMV are talking.
In most states the state can determine by the engine VIN whether it is certified for either state (CA) or Federal emission standards. If it isn't, you can sometimes get a certficate from the manufacture stating it is certified (if it is) but most times you are screwed.
Most states will title virtually any motor vehicle for insurance/theft reasons. Title the bike, then....take your title to a DMV (preferably rural, or away from a busy DMV where they see more paperwork and title tranfers) and tell them you have a title and now want to register the vehicle. It worked for me. I have titled and registered a Rokon 2x2, a 1932 JAP, a Freightliner semi as a pickup, a Suzuki JR50, and a home made scooter this way. Try and get the dumbest looking DMV chick to help you. Good luck.
