Street legal...maybe?

Is there any way in hell to make a RZR street legal? Of course it varies from state to state but has anyone tried? I would love to make a RZR a summer "get around" vehicle as crazy as it sounds. I would assume that it would take more than just directional lights to pass a safety?

Re: Street legal...maybe?

Where are you located? Here in Minnesota you would have to: turn signals, rear veiw mirror, parking brake, windshield, Dot tires, Then go to DMV have it inspected, then should be able to license as a dune buggy.

In Arizona you have to be able to spell your name.
Seriously horn, Rear view mirror and lit license plate (if you drive at night). Register it as a golf cart and insure the crap out of it.

I'm not old, I've just been around a long time.

in delaware and a lot of other states it can't be done because once something is given an offroad title. you can't legaly drive it on the road.no way to tag it. you would grind off your vin and convince them you made it and get a new vin.

Re: Street legal...maybe?

Hey bitsiphon you got me there I forgot about the horn and license plate light. Shoud have remembered that it cost me $100 by the State Patrol. In Minnesota the only place you can ride them is on the road. $500 fine for being on any trail, unless it is on your property. I have been haulin ass down many back roads, cops have just waved and waited for the dust to clear.

I'm in Niagara Falls CANADA. I will be contacting our version of the DMV and the inspection agency (Canadian Tire) and will see what's up. I'll report back with the details although it won't even apply to 95% of you.

Re: Street legal...maybe?

I spoke to a guy here in Cali he just put a windshield and turn signals the destroyed the original paperwork and had a bike shop with a manufacturers license put a VIN on it. Registered as slow moving vehicle (under 35 mph). Kinda risky
I'll stick to my trails
Would be cool though.

Re: Street legal...maybe?

I have mine street legal in Utah. Added turn signals, a horn, license light, rear view mirrors and wiper, I have a glass windshield. Then a Safety inspection and On Road Insurance.

we are restricted to two lane roads in county and cities under 7500 poplation, except if the city designates roads in their city to allow operation, Maximun speed is 45MPH.

Ace Re: Street legal...maybe?

I live in Utah and mine is street legal. The requirements may vary from state to state, but ours is as follows. (Stock RZR) needs yellow signal lights all the way around, including hazard lights. Horn. Windshield or face shield on helmet. Lighted liscense plate frame. As for all the other requirements the stock RZR already has them, like a lighted speedometer, seat belts, headlights etc. The biggest problem with the utah law is that the UTV/ATV can not be operated in towns with a population of 7500 or more. Which really confuses me because a RZR is actually safer than a motorcycle but yet motorcycles dont have restrictions and the RZR does. Prime Example that the law makers in utah cant really see anything past thier own colon due to the fact of thier head being stuck. KC.

Re: Street legal...maybe?

We need to talk to our city leaders and have them designate which roads we can drive on in the over 7500 population. Some of the cities in Cache and Box Elder counties have done this. But I am not aware of any in Weber, Davis, Morgan or Utah counties that have done so.

Re: Street legal...maybe?

Down here in southern MN I ride my RZR through Owatonna and Albert Lea all the time both are popularion 20k + so not little tiny towns.
I've driven past many cops most just give you the stink eye and keep driving. long as your on the shoulder they don't care. class 2 can run on the sides of the road unless the city states otherwise. it's controlled by hte township it's self. in other words it won't last long before some bonehead wrecks it for us.
