That's a nice WR! What are the Alberta regs? I had always thought you could get a non-RUM bike plated there, then import it here ... Sounds like it's a huge hassle there, too.

Horrible choice of bike to supermoto on the street . Even Yamaha warned dealers about doing anymore them 20 minutes of sustained highway speeds.

1. Can a Yamaha WR450 be made street legal in BC? No but Yes???? You cant take a "R.U.M." bike anymore and get it plated, but you can take make a bike from parts as a "u Built" and go through the inspection process.
.
thanks for the clarification, figured as much, you got me thinking after your post on my other thread...

sounds like a total hassle, i'll stick with street-legal model from the factory then, easier resale value that way anyway... :thumbup

officially the value of the 'original' components needs to be less than 50% of the value of the bike.

So if you took a WR frame and suspension, motor from another bike, then put sumo wheels and brakes on it, you'd be in the ballpark (it would also need all the required safety components). Although I dont know how it works with RUV vehicles, since it's illegal to remove the vin, but that vin cant be licensed.
Does anyone want to trade engines, get inspected and then switch back motors? haha I would totally do that!
