Dirtbike MSO question

Hey guys I recently bought a 13 crf 450r from the 2nd owner. He gave me the original MSO from the dealer when the bike was purchased. The dealer signed it but The original owner/ purchaser never signed it. I want to get it titled. Can I just sign it ? It will just look like I was the original purchaser?

Ok that’s what I thought. Will I have to pay the sales tax? And can I just take the mso to the title office and get a title?

If you don't have any documents that you paid sales tax, then yeah, you'll have to pay sales tax.

I’m fine with that if that’s the case. Just called the tax office and they need the dealership to fill out a 130u form for me to get a title. But it will be an off road title and they won’t make it a street title. How do I go about making it a street title?

You have to get it inspected. The inspector should give you a document that states it's street legal.

Ask the dealership that's going to give you the 130u form then.

I think what they meant is you can't get a MSO converted to a street title. You have to get a offroad title, then get it inspected, then get street title.

Get offroad title from MSO and pay sales tax
Get DOT tires, horn, hi/lo beam headlight, tail light, brake light, and I believe one mirror may be necessary.
Get inspection and turn it in with off road title to convert to street title.
Get money and .

Ok I’m going to go that route. I’m thinking of getting the Baja Designs squadron headlight and tail light. Not sure how to make it have a high and low beam though.

Why would the MSO cause the title to be issued or treated any different?

An MSO is what the dealer would present to the state to title the bike when you buy it. You presenting the MSO to the state should be no different.

Ok - I see the issue is not the title process, it is the bike. CRF450R race bike.

That bike is not going to be street title-able without first stopping off at the off-road title event, due the actual classification by the manufacturer when originally imported to get it in passed EPA & CARB.

The street title process & adventure will be same as any other cheater title endeavor then I have a street titled RZ500... now that was an interesting mission

Buy it. Put street stuff on the bike, go get it inspected and hope that the DMV does not see that your VIN is on the off-road-only-never-to-be-street-titled-big-list-of-stuff-the-government-bans

That's why it was sold on an MSO to begin with. The 1st owner didn't want to do any extra leg work.

You may luck out. Or get try get it categorized as "farm truck" or "drill equipment" LOL
