    Just got my KDX and CRF sucessfully inspected at the CSP in Broomfield this lunchtime.

    The inspector checked the DoT tires, horn, brake light, headlight and tail light but did not insist (or even mention) on a hi lo headlight - good 'cos neither bike has one.

    Didn't seem to pay any attention to the mirror either.

    Sounds like you currently don't own the moto you want to plate, so when searching I would ask the seller if the bike has been previously plated in Colorado. If the title shows it as street legal and Assuming they still have the lights and such on it, that is by far the easiest way to deal with plating a dirtbike. Most of the time you just take that title and proof of insurance to the DMV and walk out with your plates. On a side note, I find going to the DMV early in the Am, early in the week results in the best service as they haven;t had to deal with asshats all day! :rofl

    On a side note, the people of New Mexico would like to thank you guys for supplying us with our main supply of street legal dirt bikes. You have no idea how lucky you guys are up there.

    I have just finished prep on my WR450, and am taking it in on Tuesday. I even put an auxillary light on if someone insists on a hi beam. Will let ya'll know.

    Anyone have any recent experience in Broomfield? Also, what is the easiest way to get a brake light set up? (KLX300)
    I don't have DOT tires, that will be the only snag I can see coming.

    I'm just hoping someone will start another thread about the White Rim Trail.

    It's been a couple of days.

    Another thread, this was "the" thread, geesh..... As for calling, they will tell you what is in the manual, asking what someones experience is, gives someone a heads up as to what to "actually expect...

    Brake light: install a dual element tail light & a banjo bolt switch.

    DOT tires: hit up the audience for cast-offs that you can use to get thru inspection, or dumpster dive at your local bike shop.

    The dumpster diving is a good idea.
