    Being military, ive had a local address and out of state plates--->with my local address for years. Everybody does.

    Cops never have asked me why.


    And if nothing else, just wait a month and get a title from from your state with you clean SD title? Yeah, you have to register it again, but all the potential wishy-washy stuff is gone. It's the price of a new tire again

    I am seriously considering this because I have a beautiful cr500af that needs sumo wheels. My only worry is that mc vs atv/dirt designation on the sd title. I can pass all the other bs but when i go to transfer this to pa if it says dirt its not gonna fly at all. They are gonna reject it and then im out of luck and just wasted money. Is there any way to tell how your bike will come back? Maybe call and ask?

    +1 on this - I have the same concern/question here in VA.

    A related concern - I already have my bike titled in VA (as an ATV). If I go through this process to street title and plate it in South Dakota, then come back a few months later to transfer my South Dakota STREET title back to VA...is VA going to have my old ATV title on record and that raise a red flag???

    My S. Dakota title doesn't say anything about dirt or atv. It states year, make, model, and body which jsut says road/str. I'm assuming "str" is short for street. The title does however show that Illinois was the original title state so if I take it back into my local DMV it may raise a flag, but we're talking about govt employees processeing thousands of titles. I don't think they will be paying that close attention. Who's to say that you didn't buy the bike here but take it to S. Dakaota and leave it at your hunting ground up there, but decided to bring it back, or you were attending school up there and needed something for campus but now you dropped out and are back at your parents house, etc. I think the DMV is your only hurdle once it passes there I'm sure most everything else is automated and not very closely monitored. Just have a plausable story and don't act like you have your hand in the cookie jar.

    Default Getting A title

    Soo,

    I read all of the posts on this thread and didn't see anything about actually obtaining a title. I live in Hawaii and they don't issue titles for Dirtbikes. Anybody know a way around this? Its an CRF150 and I wouldn't mind throwing some street tires on it for the wife..

    No MSO, I did a VIN check and have detailed bill of sale. The guy I bought it off of had the bike for about two years and never received it from the previous owner, being that I live on an island I might be able to locate the original dealer.. Do they keep MSO's?

    Some keep them for a certain amount of time. If a title was never issued they might could release something.

    The dmv or a title company should be able to at least look up your MSO with ur VIN.

    Received my plate in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It works! My registration definitely says ATV as the body style... not sure why but DONT CARE. If they gave me a plate, im riding it on the street lol. Plus being in the military, its not uncommon to have mismatched plates/license/insurance so im just gonna keep the SD plates and not bother switching it. I can also play dumb if I do get pulled over.

    Congrats! I have put only about 60 miles on mine so far due to weather or work. But passed by several cops without even a glance.

    I do know I need a bigger gas tank! The light comes on after 30 miles of riding.

    i have registered bikes via other routes and it was a pita , the mso or whateever blbalblabla is not the issue the issue is if the old title says off road only. that is the issue. not being pulled over with an out of sate tag. that does not matter once you have a tag all states will transfer them to your state so to worry about that is retarded , the mayor problem is the title, off road shit , if in sd they are changing your title designation and sending you a tag then that is the best news i have heard in years is that true ? please clarify the issue thanks guys

    Read the first post in this thread. It gives you the step by step process. To answer your question. Yes if you have a title in your name it doesn't matter what it says about off road only. You send it and everything else in post one to s. Dakota and they will send you a plate and a new s. Dakota title that says road/ street.

    Sorry if someone else already mentioned this, or I'm just being dumb (I only skimmed through this thread). If I took a.. say... 08 CRF 450 and did this whole thing, would I be able to transfer it to Cali since it would then have the street title? Cali laws bug me, I can't find the page with the specifics anywhere.

    In ca from what I've heard you only need to show that it has more than 7500 miles on it and maybe have it ready for inspection at the dmv. Just ride it 7500 miles in the time you have the sd plate. The police shouldn't pull you over unless you're doing something wrong or they see you really often. They'd have to notice the sd plate again after 30 days. The vehicle is supposed to be registered in the state if you're there more than 30 days...

    have yet to see a CRF plated in calif. hope somebody will chime in on this. ithe bike would have had to go through the carb process from calif, along with aqmd requirements when it was originally mfg. from what i gather. if it wasn?t plateable from honda in calif, don?t think it will happen. do go to AAA and ask them to run the VIN and they will tell you, without red raging the bike. DMV won?t do that for you.

    What it generally cost to get everything done? Tax, tag, title, registration?
    This is the interwebs. You don't admit when you're wrong. You just bring it down to personal attacks against sexual preference, the opponents mother or at the very least past grammar mistakes. RGP's: 5

    It comes down to if you paid taxes on your bike when you purchased it and have the paperwork to prove it. If you do not have the paperwork, SD will make you pay taxes at the time you register it in their state.


    Also on a side note, even if you do not have a title or MSO, you can still get your bike registered in SD for street duty. From what I have found from emailing them, if you have a current offroad registration in your current state, that is sufficient as long as your forms (registration, atv affidavit that is notarized, copy of you driver license). Now if you purchased a bike that was repossessed, you will also need an affidavit of repossession and a copy of the security agreement from the previous owner

    FYI Montana does self cert that a dirt bike has all street equipment then issues a street title, can even street reg' ATV UTV don't know if they do via mail though ? 1 other unique think about MT is that bikes are a permanent lifetime registration, they do not require insurance on bikes crazy as it sounds. I've do 3 bikes so far, even a GasGas trials bike

    May run into a problem with the insurance. My agent called and asked for the VIN. Said the insurance company called them to verify the VIN was correct.
    I sent a copy of my SD title and registration card so we shall see.

    If the bike is titled then you're good with the insurance company.

    Thats what I think too. That why I sent copies showing that its legal. They may ask why SD =Ga thing but seriously I dont know why its a big deal. Cops and insurance companies should not even care about dirt bikes on the street. Its not like we can out run cops, and if the bike hits the pavement,we just pick it up and ride home.

    I had a similar problem with a Chinese bike that I street legaled in CA (by use of magic, not the SD trick). The insurance company took awhile to figure out what to do. About a week or so, they ended up calling it a scooter since it was a 250cc. ha.

    I spoke with my insurance company (Progressive) prior to buying the bike, and they said as long as it has a street legal title and plate they would cover it for road use.

    Thank you very much for the information, Im VERY close to trying this because I cant seem to find a nice SM in my city.

    My question is, What if I buy the bike from a private seller and get the title from them? will that still be fine since its not new? and is that when ill have to pay taxes with SD?

    Ill be keeping an eye on this thread.

    You're certain of this? I've never owned a dirtbike with a title because here in kansas you aren't required to register them, therefore NO ONE does.
    this is a horrible problem for people who want to supermoto.

    but I think you can do an offroad registration (it's mainly for getting insurance if you dont have a title) with just a bill of sale.
    If I can get my bikes plated with no title....... because I have no idea how to go about getting a title or MSO for a 2001 bike

    That is the info they told me when I emailed them. My state does not title off road vehicles so we only have a bill of sale. They told me if I have an off road registration that is all that is needed along with their forms. I have not tried it yet as I do not even have an off road registration yet
