I assume you would just transfer the reg, and in your name put all the road gear on and get a roady
for full reg
What year are you looking for as I have an 06 Kato with rec reg coming up for sale

Yes, rec reg to road reg will require a full roadworthy.

Don't forget things like the horn, a chain guard and the rear guard should (or used to anyway) extend down to level with the rear axle.....or thereabouts.

When looking at the 2011 ask if he has all the original ADR parts, it'll save you a fair headache not to mention coin.

Tires as well Sav. We used to just grind off the " Not for Highway use".

The entire process ia a major PITA IMO. Time is moeny, and. life is too short. Just go buy a new one with Reg.

get the seller to install the adr gear blinkers ect so you can make sure it works and is all complete before buying. Also remember to get a receipt and put a low value for the bike on it this will save you stamp duty . Full rego is a huge cost over rec im looking at switching back. Full rego is around $460 a year plus you need to pay for a roadie that you don't need for rec rego . Rec rego is only $120 a year off the top of my head. Both still need stamp duty paid.

If you are only going to pay $450 for full reg for the advantages you get it is totally worthwhile,with it you can ride anywhere even to the local shop but rec reg is limited to forest roads only,my bike is $700+ per year I wish it was $450 cheers Nev
