    If anyone with the ATV body type title had any info that would be great, I tried calling today but they were out to lunch, I got one email back saying "This is how they register dirtbikes in South Dakota", which doesn't answer any of my questions. I'm really hoping I didn't spend $50 for a plate I can't use. I'm just confused right now, I see there's a few people on here with the same thing and they seem to be riding fine, just wanting for clarification. Thanks

    sometimes it says atv, mc, or the best ever: enduro

    it will be up to your local tag office as to how picky they are about the magic papers and the magic ink on them. sometimes they act like what you're asking is akin to curing cancer, other times it's just a rubber stamp and barely a sigh.

    the DMV is a useless tax generator squirreling away magic papers for tomorrow.

    Ok so I got the 1998 kTM frame I'm using in my build from from a dismantler in SC. They provided a bill of sale for the frame. Before I called SD I called the dismantler and asked for a reason they issued a bill of sale vs a title or mco. The owner said where they are in sc is very close to Georgia and that being so the bike possibly came from there and was never issued a title. When I called SD i told the lady this and that I had the bill of sale from the company and she said I would need to fill out one more affidavit (https://www.state.sd.us/eforms/secur...gistration.pdf) with the other two to complete the registration for the 98'. I'll let you know how its goes down Ill be sending paperwork out for my ktm 350 and my 98 frame with 96' 360 project tomorrow.
    Oh and even though on this affidavit has the notary from south Dakota she said any notary from anywhere can do it.
    I believe the lady's name was Gerry who I spoke with

    Just putting this out there, I contacted my state and asked about the ATV body style and they said that still counted as off road. I could see getting away with it because of the plates but still, seems like the majority of us getting ATV or something similar aren't really street legal, I'm not sure if I contact them by phone that they'll change it.

    Well the I have the title not the mco for the 2013 350sx-f and my Texas title has motorcycle listed as the body type. I don't see why they would alter that and not list it as such. Is that happening to people with titles or just the guys registering with mco's?My thinking is if I send them both one with title and one without at the same time they will list mc on both.

    Default Now it makes sense

    I think that being that my bike is new & says "Motorcycle" on the MSO that it will be registered as such & that is why I had some difficulties.

    Bah, too much worry about the magic papers... just send your stuff !

    Mine came back labeld as the coolest possible vehicle, which was "enduro", but my state doesn't have 'enduro' on their rubber-stamp-it computer screen. They changed it to "mc" which is much lamer, but whatever, it's legal and insured now.

    Default For California Residents who have the SD Plate

    Hey guys,
    Just wanted to see if any other Cali residents ran into this issue or already know what to do with DMV regarding transfers out of state. I posted here a while back showing my receiving of the SD plates. Only issue is that I wanted to report it to the DMV because I received an 'Incomplete Registration" letter from CA DMV since I was initially trying to go through the legit route (DMV to CHP then to DMV again..). Initially, I was trying to get dual-registration for my 05 KTM EXC 525, however, things didn't fall through with 'respect' to emissions standards thanks to CHP.

    So, after the failure I looked to South Dakota and got my plate from them.

    Question: How do I report to this change to CA DMV who knows only that the bike is CA off-road registered, but not on-highway registered? And also doesn't know I have South Dakota plates on them.



    Thanks in advance guys,
    -Rene

    Default Bringing up another question from this...

    So, I currently live in Japan and have a street-legal DRZ400SM here. I'm planning to bring it back to the states when I end my tour here, but may run into some issues with the legalities. I was told by the Motorcycle Foundation here, that as long as I can tag/title the bike in the states prior to PCS that I would good to go. Anyone look into this or running a non-USDM spec bike? I would be very curious if this would be something I could work out. Thanks in advance!

    the drz is considered street legal in the US, so wherever you end up living, it won't be a problem for street legalese.

    the importing of it (psychically) and border /customswouldbethe only annoyances.

    once it's here, titling that bike will be just like titling any other through south Dakota. :-)

    I figured if I can get plates/registration that may help with importing the bike. I'll have to get a translated title but I may be able to work out the "legal" importation.

    Hey guys I just found out about this thread and had a one question before I try this

    I currently have a street title from another person that I bought my motorcycle from
    I tried to transfer to a Wisconsin title but failed
    Do I just send this in with the other information to South Dakota (It's completely signed from both me and seller)
    or do I have to get a dirt title in my name from this before I can send it to South Dakota?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    I am wondering if I will need an inspection sticker from my state. Obviously it should be inspect able so the cops leave me alone but why will I need a sticker if it is registered through SD?

    the answer changes with each state/province. YOUR state will be different from all the others, and of course every stop by the police will be different also.

    use the SD method to get a title, then transfer to your state and put whatever on the bike is needed to remain legal.

    Just go to the Vermont DMV website its all there you dont need a fake address or anything. Bike or car must be less then 300cc or older then 10years. I have done it its super easy.

    Here is the link you need just follow the directions.

    http://dmv.vermont.gov/registrations/drivers/new



    Just wanted to add, your bike can be newer or have more cc if you have a MSO or title if you want to convert to street.

    Sent in my title last week w/forms. Got an e-mail from South Dakota this morning providing my total fees and letting me know I could call and provide my CC information. My bike is a 2014 WR450F titled in New Mexico with me currently living and my driver's license showing Florida. So when the renewal comes back up, I'll probably have the local police stop by and do a VIN inspection (so I don't have to take the actual bike down to the DMV) and then I'll go get it titled and registered in Florida.

    Great Thread!!

    I must a missed the part where the address changed. I just sent mine in last week (previous post to yours) and my tags are already on the way back to me from SD. I just used the two forms as mentioned in the first post and used the exact address posted in the first post. Just did everything the OP said to do. The only additional thing they wanted when they e-mailed me was the color of my bike.

    Whoops, didn't realize it was edited to match the new/correct address. Thanks!
    Fingers crossed I can find my bill of sale. Bought the bike new but that was back in 2001! Hoping this goes smoothly, been dreaming of a plate on this for years.

    Default Wisconsin

    I am from Wisconsin and I am trying to get a plate and title for my 2000 kx 250 2 stroke.

    Okay so I have spend the last 4 hrs trying to ready most of this post, now I have just a few questions.

    Is there anyone that has done this process with a 2 stroke?

    I have the first two forms filled out and they are ready to be sent in, but there is a problem.....
    I do not have a title or Mso (none were issued) but I found the form that states you can get a title made for the bike.
    Form MV-215 https://www.state.sd.us/eforms/secur...gistration.pdf
    Has anyone else had to use this method?

    I just want to make sure I have everything straight before I finally send everything in.

    Thanks for the help...

    If you tried calling back today, you won't get a response as it's a Federal holiday (Veteran's day).

    Update: I've had a sd plate on my WR426 for about 3 months now in CA with no problems from the cops. Guess I've been lucky. Oh and I went to the dmv today and walked out with CA plates and registration. Should have my new title in 4-6 weeks. I'm going to call this a successful transfer. Thanks everyone who updates this thread!!!

    I read the entire thread and actually registered to ask a few questions.

    People who have done this in Florida..

    If I were to buy a dirt bike what would be the best case title scenario(besides already plated)? Would it be better to buy a dirt bike in GA, plate it through SD or just buy one in FL and plate it through SD(I live near GA but in FL)?

    Basically looking to buy a dirt bike and use this method to plate it from scratch(own a couple of dual sports).


    To everyone else..

    Has anyone done this process and sold their bike later on?
    Did it add value?

    1- this is just a process to get a street legal title, which will be exactly like any other street legal title. if your state (florida/whatever) requires EXTRA crap like lights/smog/certifications on TOP of the title, then yes, you'll have to do that. titles transfer from state to state, unless it's a weirdo place that has EXTRA crap. ;-)

    2- of course it will add value, but it's not magic. if your bike was worth $2500 before, it's not a signed-by-pam-anderson race replica worth $80,000 ;-)

    just do it. ride the bike. know every time you do, you're getting away with... nothing.

    The title and registration just showed up from South Dakota
    It clearly says dirt on both the title and the registration
    is this still considered street legal in my state of Wisconsin?

    Looking closely at the photos, I noticed it says "Body : Dirt". I think they mean that's just the body style, as opposed to M/C. Unless they specifically told you otherwise, I don't imagine it'd be something to worry about, after all, it's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission. Also, I have my XR650R plated down here in NC. It's had a plate for less than 10 days and I've been tearing it up all over. Haven't gotten a second look from the police, and as you know, I'm sure, the uncorked 650R isn't quiet when you're hard on the throttle...
