    Title help for KTM 300 in Texas

    Tech in CC, listen up!

    I want a new off-road machine and I want light and nimble, so 2 stroke it shall be. Problem is the title for the new bike is not going to be DMV friendly, so I am told, purchase to be completed on Saturday. No , I don't want to do this because I am trying to be a commuter, all of this stems from stringing trails together in CO and UT. The group of guys I will be riding with are all on 2 strokes as well but they live in OK and no one seems to care what you register in that state. I don't want to be the guy that gets us all pulled over every time we go from one trail to the next.

    What work arounds to this problem are available? Before I go and sign all the paperwork do I need to start an LLC in AZ or what?

    I haven't been on in a couple of days. Just found this gem:

    I still wonder if there is another option. Just doesn't seem right that I should have to trailer a bike trailhead to trailhead when no one else does that.

      My street legal, 4 stroke KTM 350 EXC-F weights 228lbs ready to ride. How much lighter can the 2 smoke possibly be to go through the BS of trying to get it plated and still possibly getting your balls busted?

        Register the bike in OK using a friends address?

            The 300 is lighter by 1 pound.

            But has 51 HP vs 35

              I had my 250 2-stroke. I had to wring its neck to get up this one hill climb out in CO that was near my house. It would take me more than 3 tries every time to get up it. Then my friend rides out with his 4 stroke and drives straight to the top because of torque. Every time he got in trouble he still had torque. It was a game changer.

                I was looking into trying to make a yamaha ttr 230 street legal and get plates, lights, horn, etc were no big deal but the state would not give plates due to title.. After a lot of web searching it seemed like transferring the title to Montana would get a street legal title and plates. IIRC you could also just clean the title in Montana and then transfer it to home state and get plates. Bring it up in the Montana thread already linked

                  Get the the Maine OHV tag. This tag allows you to ride on the streets of ME. https://moses.informe.org/online/atv_snow/index.htm

                  Registers the vehicle in ME, they give you a tag that allows you to ride on the streets. Then, due to reciprocity, its a legal tag there in your state.

                    maybe some people like having some power in their bike rather than buy a 4 stroke

                      Alaska won't allow you to register a dirt bike for street use either, but when I bought my Husky FE501 (not 501s so not street legal) the dealer told me that ktm and husky come with some document that doesn't list it as an off road vehicle like all the other mfg do. I can't remember what the document was (4 years ago) but they were able to put a light and plate kit on it and do all the dmv paperwork to get it titled. I asked the guy if I could do the lights and paperwork myself and he told me that it was much easier for them as a motorcycle dealership to get it pushed through and I might not have the same luck. There are a handful of plated 300s running around town too.

                        I have no idea what year this was for you but times have changed my friend. The 300s have lots of low end grunt power. I have been a 4 stroke guy from the start 27 years ago (XR 200, XR 250, XR 400, CRF 450x), this will be my first 2 stroke and the first to be fed through injection. Times are a changing.

                          I likes my 284 lb 61 HP XR650R, and it has all the power I'll ever need and I use it. And fuck Orange.

                            You might want to check on that new "title". If you are buying a new ktm, it will come with a "mso" mfg statement of origin. The last ktm mso I saw did NOT have the words "for off road use only" like every jap bike has. I have personally tagged a dozen new ktm two-strokes here in KS because 1- it doesnt need an inspection(being new) and 2-not having that off road language on the mso doc. I even tagged a 450r honda without any lights, horn, mirrors etc. it had an arkansas title that did not have off road only on it. you luck could be worse down there, dont know.
