Re: street legal in michigan ?

Can you make these modifications/ title changes while the rzr is being financed?

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Does your Liberty Mutual Insurance say Michigan No-Fault on it? Is it insured on a personal auto policy or business auto policy? My concern would be, driving it on the road as a "street legal" vehicle w/o the proper "Michigan No-Fault" insurance on it. I could see that being a huge personal liability exposure. I am curious, because I would like to do the same thing. But I would only do it, if I was protected properly.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

You better check with your bank before you do all of the work. i guess there are many that wont allow the VIN to be changed. It would suck to do all of the work then the bank wont let it happen.

The insurance is tricky too. I talked to a few guys who had theres plated, and their reallly not insured. There are some insurance companies that have michigan no fault on all of their proofs. heck my snowmobile even said that. but when these people are in a accident theres no coverage.

I wanted to do things right no skimping. when i had it inspected had a state trooper do it, so there was no skimping

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Hi All
My rzr goes in the shop to get the "street legal" addons this weekend.
I have also talked to the finance and insurance companies and received their blessings.

What are these registered as for title purposes ?
That's where my confusion is now.

If you have already retitled your rzr please let me know, I would like to know what it is registered as.

Thanks
Tom

Re: street legal in michigan ?

i just got mine street legal on Thursday April 28 and it was a little bit of a hassle at the SOS but everything else went smooth. the SOS was helpful but didn't know exactly what to categorize it as because they don't see this often, but its considered a orv pickup. it gets a new vin in 4-6 weeks so i purchased a 60 day temp plate for $50. they wanted to see the receipts for all the items used to make it street legal so they could tax you on them if you didn't pay tax already. once the vin guy comes out to the house to place the vin tag you get the paperwork to buy a permanent plate. i already put 40 plus mile on it and passed 1 sheriff and he didn't blink, so far so good

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Well I would like to say thanks to bonzi.
My local SOS office (canton) was extremely confused, the lady I had has been
there 25 years and this was her first time to make a orv street legal.

I showed her bonzi's post (on my iphone) to give her some guidence as to what to call it
then after a call to Lansing, they told her I could not get a temp plate until I got the new MI VIN #.

Finally (after 1.5 hrs) she got everything together and Issued the paperwork
and a 60 day temp plate.

Thanks again to bonzi !
I still might be waiting at the sos office

Tom

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Had the EMP windshield on mine and the police asked for the DOT engraving on the glass which EMP doesn't have so i showed him the website add that states that the glass is DOT approved so he signed off on the title application, so if i get stopped and asked to produce the proof i made a laminated copy of the add and keep it with me, but so far the police or DNR haven't blinked an eye at me since i plated it, knock on wood. But i will install a rear window that is like a boat window so i can unsnap it when i run the half shield on the trails and the glass when i run the roads, as the exhaust fumes get heavy with the glass in place so then i'll snap the rear soft glass for those times.
