Might as well set it up for hi-low beam while you're already at it..
a LOT of inspectors will demand both work.

the statutes also state both must work. for $20 why not?

drz400, s or e with clear street title for $1600 - $2000. Shoe on some street tires on stock size rims and have fun. If you love it, buy spokes and rims from chad ($600?), and a set of sv650 race takeoffs from John at scrc ($75 - $100 mounted). If you are hooked, get a brake rotor and spacer for the caliper ($100 used). Suspension is fine using a dirt bike for street stuff. Only if you are really racing do you need real suspension.

But first things first...get a drz in dirt trim and ride it in the dirt until you learn how to actually ride, lol.

Im thinking of getting a 12 WR450f to tard out or Find a KTM 690SMC...
550.

The extra toggle switch is a factory add-on. It engages the lumbar support.

That's not a blue title shown in the pics. You can buy it. You won't own it. And the owner can then report it stolen, and you get it taken back, and all kinds of BS.

shoulda bought my klx dude! Shane got a great deal on it. he loves it. i wasnt trying to hide anything from him and he got his title and transferred it no problem! everyone was too worried it was a 250.. a stock one sucks. i could clutch up mine in 3rd gear all day long.

i cant wait to buy another tard, im glad my baby went to a good home.

and i cant wait to knock my ex room matethe out for me into the situation im in and had to sell it.

oh well though.

Being that I was an NC resident for 20+ years, it will say if it has a lien holder on it.

It is a factory legal bike, NC is real -ish on titling off road bikes.
