The DMV rep you spoke with was wrong or there was some miscommunication.

CA DMV: Buying a Vehicle From Out of State - Can You Register it in California? (FFVR 29)



I don't believe this changes anything the human told me on the phone yesterday. 7,500 miles or lower is a new bike. Must be fifty state legal to be registered in Calif. On your attachment no reference to over 7,500 miles. But when I tried to get my 20,000 mile out-of-state bike registered I could not unless it had the right EPA stickie.

All I know is Calif is tough. On everything. Except, nevermind, what I was going to write belongs in another thread.

I don't think I was very clear in my post. I posted that link because you said "I just got off the phone with a DMV person. Coincidentally, I have a chance to buy a new 2012 FJR1300 out-of-state." The link discusses what is considered a NEW vehicle which should apply to your new 2012 FJR scenario. You wouldn't be able to register a new street bike purchased out of state unless it was 50-state compliant and has the sticker stating so. No confusion there.

I have to admit I'm a bit confused because you mentioned a used ZX-14 in one post, a new 2012 FJR in another and a third post where you mention a bike with 20,000 miles that I guess is the ZX-14?

I don't know why you weren't able to register 20,000 mile ZX-14 with matching frame/engine numbers and problem-free, prior registration from Arizona. A bike (even a 49-state bike) meeting those conditions with over 7,500 miles should be able to be registered in California. Here is a different link which references 7,500 miles:


Quote
Caution: Unless the vehicle was originally manufactured to meet California emission standards or the owner or vehicle qualifies for an exemption, California law prohibits:

California residents or businesses from bringing into California or registering in California, a motor vehicle that had less than 7,500 miles on the odometer (at the time of purchase, trade, or acquisition).


Good luck on future purchases and happy riding.  Thumbsup

All I know by my interactions with DMV and minor research is that to register a vehicle here it has to be a fifty state vehicle. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Happy riding indeed!!
