Get a "Baja Designs" lighting kit, with turn signals, stuff the exhaust can with steel wool to quiet it down, pirate a charcoal canister from a street bike, run your gastank overflow lines to it, get an appoinment with your local State Troopers to inspect the bike, and there you go, you'll get a plate. At least that's how it works here in Kalipornia.

Ummmm... the 2002 Suzuki DR200E was originally sold as a dual-purpose streetbike. All you need to do is put the street components on it and get it inspected.

A DRZ is a dirt-only varian of the DRS, so if the rubes at the DMV don't notice the vehicle ID prefix he should be able to get a plate for it. I know you can get one in Arizona like that, or Nevada. Or Alaska where nobody cares anyway because they're hopped up on coffee.

According to bikez the only 200 sold in 2002 was the DR200E. There never was a 200 dirt only 4-stroke. His bike should be a DR200E not a DRZ200 whether he thinks so or not.
