Re: Michigan hb5639 passed

Wow - too much stuff required. It should need no more than a street legal dual sport motorcycle. The windshield, wiper requirement is too much.

I agree somewhat. A lot of hoops to jump through, then trying to get a decent price for insurance adds to it. As nice as it would be to have it road legal, I don’t see myself going through the trouble or expense. Maybe if I lived closer to work and could use it for commuting.

Re: Michigan hb5639 passed

I did this all once a few years back (2014), it sucked and cost me tons of money. I enjoyed adding the modifications but dealing with the DMV was like driving a nail slowly into my head. The entire process from when I first applied to actually getting the new plate took 7 months. I found a good cop to sign off on everything so that went well. I had all the parts on in a few weeks so that was easy too. I used a hand crank windshield wiper to save on funds.

I assume like a differential in a RWD car?
My rzr doesn't have one. That's why we burn up tires so fast when we ride on the street.

Re: Michigan hb5639 passed

Yeah...the “differential gear” thing rules me out. I ride exclusively in the U.P. anyway so not being street legal isn’t much of an inconvenience. Hopefully it works out for others though.

We have differentials right?

Because otherwise the kits are $150-$300, plus windshield, (washer fluid dispenser too i think), mirrors, and DOT tires.

Im super excited about this if its that simply. Im looking at Street legal kits right now

Re: Michigan hb5639 passed

I never heard of UTVs being checked for 'differential gear's during TR54 inspections when Michigan used to register prior to 2015's ban. We have a differential with gears in it . . .

Re: Michigan hb5639 passed

the hardest part could be finding affordable insurance. As stated the rest isn't too bad. I think the differential part is a non issue I believe since all sXs have one

My guess is the differential thing is to thwart people from registering go-carts and quads as street legal. Most sxs’s have a differential. I wonder if any money from Mahindra is behind this bill to allow the Roxor to get plated? They are a huge company with very deep pockets and the Roxor is being assembled in Michigan.
