    imformation on regeristing a converted bike

    I just picked up a honda cr 250.Its a 2003 and was used twice im told by the owner.Needless to say there isnt a flaw on the bike.I have been riding i guess you could say a semi tard for many year its a tdr 250 and one of my favorit bikes.i have allways figured id get one some day nows hears my chance.Yes i no its a 2 stroke and am aware of all the reasons i shouldnt use this bike (electrickal ect)but i very much preferr 2 strokes and do not mind working through all the problems that go along with it.I will probibly end up one day convert it to a cr500 motor but for now thats a ways off.Any way my main concern is the difficulty of regeristing it for plates.any help would be great thanks

    Hmmm, no one else is chiming in... I don't think icbc allows this sort of thing anymore, last i heard. You can't really register a converted bike.

    I've heard this too, apparently the SuMo must be factory or it's not legal. Of course I heard this from a dealership successfully trying to sell me a factory motard.
    screw it, I'm leaving

    If it says RUM (Restricted use motorcycle) on the VIN tag (usually on the gooseneck) it cannot be registered anymore. There was a loophole for a while, but it seems that's been washed away.

    People are still doing conversions, The loophole now is to grind off the frame serial number and register it as a u-built then get it inspected. If you follow the same steps as the Harley guys where they get a frame, then throw an engine in it then call it a u-built there is no problem. What was happening is you can go buy a bike, like a KTM 530 that comes both street legal and off road then people were buying the cheaper off road bike (RUM) and going to a ICBC agent and saying it is street legal then the agent who in most cases dont know shit would insure it.

    If done properly there is no reason why you cant build a "home built" bike, get it inspected, then insure it and ride it. You just need to find the right shop who understands the law and an agent who is willing to help.

    thanks for the reply.so it would seem in the ktm case the rum bike would have had to pay less in taxxes than a street worthy bike.so its no surprise the gov would stop this.takeing the vin off had popped up as an option.and maybe the only way to go.sucks.either way it will be a fun project

    A few runs down the upper levels highway should have it leaned out enough to stick the piston. A 2 stroke dirtbike engine is not designed
    for what you are planning on doing with it.
