    Have any of you guys went through the tagging process on an older bike? Im fixing to start the process on a 1996 XR600R. All I have as far as documentation is a hand written bill of sale.

    Call the DMV. They will tell you what you need to do.

    They guy I bought my DRZ400E from never registered it. He had the title signed by the previous owner. All I had to do was make an appointment with a judge and have him award me the title.

    As far as registration in Oklahoma its super easy. Speedo horn and lights. VIN check and you are good to go.

    Thanks for the replies guys. My bike predates titles being issued in Oklahoma from what I understand. So im just trying to find out how much of a hassle its going to be to get it titled so I can start the process to get it plated. I actually bought the bike from a guy in texas, and from I gathered from the DMV Texas issues titles and my Bill of sale wont cut it?

    You are correct. I bought mine in Texas as well. If you are in Oklahoma and if the DMV is requiring a title then go the nudge route. It was painless although $130 was steep. I had the paper work and registration done in the same day as I received the judge decision to award me the title. If you have the work done already on the bike it will take some running around but its not horribly difficult or complicated.

    Did you ever decide on a single replacement bike?

    I did not. I still have both DRZs. The 400E has M41 tubliss and it is great for road and ok offroad, as long as you are not trying to go fast offroad.

    The 250 is in the shop getting a new top end. I rode the 400E out in Duncan at darryl's place for the first time and it did ok. Weight did not bother me, but lack of traction without knobbies did. I think I could replace the 250 with the 400E.

    On that note the 250 just feels so smooth and great. Its like its a part of me when I ride it now I have used it so long in the trails. I can't see me getting rid of it. Maybe after I get it back and take it out to Darryls I will will decide I need more power, but until then I think Im holding on to both.

    IF I had to go to one, I am thinking KTM 350 EXCf or CRF450X plated.

    When I registered my 1985 XR350R, I went to the Oklahoma Tax Commission at the capital complex in OKC with a bill of sale (generated for the occasion) and a receipt for my Baja Designs kit. They gave me some paperwork that I took to the tag agency along with insurance verification and I had a title in hand a few days later. Nobody ever looked at the bike.

    Theres several ways to do it... 7 or 8 years ago I took a form very similar to this one below to a tag agency and titled a '99 YZ426... It came back using the same VIN as the bike's original one and everything was great...

    I did almost the same process a few years later on an '04 KTM 450 and had to provide receipts down by the capitol (DMV? can't remember)... it came back with a VIN starting with "ASVE00...." and is tagged as a 2009... the taxes suck on it being a "new" bike now... and I had to STAMP THE NEW VIN in the frame, and carry a piece of paper with me everywhere... Ugh.

    specifically on the second bike I used, 761B

    The EASY way is if you're buying the bike NEW NEW NEW.... just ask the dealer, BEFORE THE PURCHASE, (and remind them DURING the purchase) that you want a street-legal title... all they have to do is mark one(?) thing on the title and when you register the certificate of origin down at the tag agency, they'll ask you if you want a tag (or just assume you do), and the title will come back as a regular title in the mail. SUPER EASY.

    My 2013 KTM 200 XC-W I bought used came with a tag.
    First owner bought it in Texas, when he registered it in Oklahoma, they asked him if he wanted a tag.

    Does anyone know if a motorcycle is required to have turn signals in Ok. I have an 09 400 KTM XCW. It did not have lights originally but I installed lights from an EXC, including brake light. It has an odometer and mirrors.

    Do I need to install turn signals?

    You need to get it out of the yard, off the milk crate, and the new tires put back on it first! :deal :lol3 :beer

    What is the process for getting a VIN, if your machine is so old it pre-dates the 17 digit VIN?

    Got the top end rebuilt and brakes fixed on my 77 Husky... As I understand it I don't even need turn signals. It would be entirely too much fun to ride it to work.:rofl

    I know this is an old thread, but I am looking at getting a 2004 or older 2 stroke dirt bike and would love to get it street legal for running between trails.

    Seems no one in OK has titles on thwir dirt bikes. Will any generic notirized bill of sale work for getting a title? Is it easier to title 42 the bike and get a title vs. Going through the judge?

    Really appreciate any help!

    Bought a 2005 crf230f with no title and only a bill of sale went to the local tag agent and they gave me a rash of shit about what they couldn't do and how impossible this or that was and how I needed to sue to have a title awarded to me ect ect blah blah bullshit bullshit! Took the same paperwork to the next county over and they said no problemo. Sign here pay there and title and little brown offroad sticker in the mail next week.

    Same tag agent that gave me so much shit on the Honda gave me a plate for my 2014 KTM 450 xc-w with no blinkers or brake light or any other street equipment. Just asked if I wanted one and took my insurance when I paid my excise tax. You never know how things will work out but if one tag agent says no I'd keep trying others until you get a yes. 20160102_160643.jpg

    Resurrecting an old one here. (And first post on the forum by the way!)

    Any changes to Oklahoma law wth regards to this? I have a 2015 WR250f. I just installed a Tusk dual sport kit. Still has the stock tires by the way. How important is having DOT tires if they don't even do an inspection?

    I'm loving the bike and can't wait to get it street legal.

    Thanks!
