street legal in michigan ?

i was wondering about the hassle of getting road legal, all the hoops- tires, windshield, wiper, insurance. i have the maddog kit to start. also if the dnr will hassle you if you don't put the correct windshield and tires if on a 2 track or power line, what roads are off limits, a lot of questions i know but just want to get it right the first time.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

I am street legal in Michigan. The most difficult part was finding a insurance company that would cover me on the road and on the trail. I had to switch all of the insurance to Liberty Mutual to get a resonable price for the street legal insurance. I added the following items to my 2008 Std Razor and then had it inspected by my local police department.

1.) Parking Brake
2.) Turn signals
3.) High Beams
4.) Safety Glass Windshield
5.) Wiper (Manually operated)
6.) Horn
7.) Washer Fuild pump and nozzles
8.) License Plate Light
9.) D.O.T. Approved tires EXF Motogrips
10.) Polaris Front Bumper
11.) Polaris Rear Bumper

Once the police department signs off on the TR-54 Form you take that your title, and proof of insurnace to the SOS and they will issue you a plate and a new title.

Good Luck!

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Insurance is a pain, and you are going to pay alot of money for it if you can find it.

Where are you going to ride? In northern michigan and the UP you can ride on most county roads, just no state roads and highways. Heck i drove mine across the mackinaw bridge last year ill try to post the picture.

Forest service roads can be ridden on if you have a plate.

It was a long drawn out pain getting mine done legal, and i went above and beyond for everything.

Its nice being able to go down the road, but i have alot of time and money wrapped up into doing it.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

I had a custom windshield made, it works great. it has vents in bottom to keep dust from sucking in, and i also put a electric wiper and washer in it

UP you wouldnt need to do road legal, baldwin would be good for that silver lake is a good time too.

Paradise to grand marais is the best rzr riding in my opinion. lots of great off trail riding right along superior

Re: street legal in michigan ?

that is a sweet windshield, who made it? and would they be interested in making another? i like the mirror combo, wasn't sure how the side mirrors would look but they look good, with the vents you don't need a rear window?

Re: street legal in michigan ?

welding guy i know made that, he told me if anyone wanted one it would be 550 but you have to put the electric wiper and washer on.

I know its pricey but it works good and was done special to what i wanted. yeah i havent had trouble without a rear window, doesnt suck air in bad

where you located at?

Be careful with the windshield. In the Baldwin area I had to have one with DOT stamp, Polaris windshield has it, EMP does not and they were not interested in stamping it.

Probably there are several items on the checklist that are open to interpretation but there's no DOT requirement listed for the windshield.

IMO if you live on the west half of the State it would be worth the drive to take the machine to Silver Lake (Mears, Shelby) for the inspection. They have more experience with it than anywhere else and I'll bet are more lenient.
