No more dual sport "kit" bikes in BC?

As far as I know it's still technically not "impossible" to get one plated.

Just not any where near as easy or trouble-free as it used to be.

Thanks for that link. So looks like you can home build a bike tho lol. I've been told that to many people were plating 2 strokes without kits and that is why they don't allow it anymore. So if you have an existing plated bike its ok?

If it's been plated before then you're good to go until you get inspected... then you're hooped.

You can't newly insure a bike unless it comes from the factory with compliance, it is stated on the frame whether the machine meets the requirements. "Off road only" will not fly even with mods. I guess you build it and have it inspected... it's the shops' ticket on the line.

U build seems like it may be a way around it, I don't know the specifics... probably need a legal frame, inspection...

Easy to dual sport a 4 stroke dirt bike in AZ, no 2 strokes allowed. But good luck getting insurance for it. The "off road use only" is in the VIN, and the insurance company will turn it down.
