what should I get?

Recently, I decided that I wanted a good used dirtbike for the purposes of getting my self to class(I go to N.C. State) but I mainly want it for off road riding. It will have limited street use. I was just wondering what y'all would recommend. My price range is probably in the area of $2000-$3000 I have seen seen a few 500 cc on/offroad bikes but I was thinking of maybe a 250cc... can you make those street legal? And also the fastest I would have to go on the road is 40mph(its all city streets). Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: what should I get?

I would definetely want a 4 stroke... but can you make 250 street legal? Those 500's are kind of pricey

Re: what should I get?

I can't really offer any suggestions on specific models for street legal/offroad or dual purpose bikes in the 250cc range. I ride both street and offroad, but on different bikes. They're aren't many "street legal" two strokes out these days. If I were you, I'd grab a cycle trader and see whats out there in my price range that I liked and go for it. If you don't know much about bikes, grab a bud that does and take him with you to check it out. I know there are some older XL's and TT's out there that are street legal and pretty good thumpers too. Good luck.

Get a XR250 and get it street legal or find one thats all ready done.

Thats all there is too it... there is no ONE perfect bike.

All's I'm sayin is "YEA"

Re: what should I get?

to make a dirt bike street legal you have to have the title. check out bajadesigns.com they have kits for these bikes.

kyron, how do i get a title for my 83 xr350? i was thinking of a dual sport conversion

Re: what should I get?

Do you have any paper work for it?

go to your notor veh department and tell 'em its a street bike! if it's never been registered (in cal dirt bikes are dirt registered) they might not know that its a "dirt" bike.

Find out what your states regulations are for street bikes and thats what you have to do....... the baja kits are nice but I'd look at E-line also....

There are a lot of "corners" you can cut to save $$.


Stupid side note.........
I have to have my CR500 emission tested to transfer the street registration from cal to Az.... they say it will pass [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] how that is I have no idea, I guess they just want my MONEY...........

All's I'm sayin is "YEA"
