    Street Legal in Michigan?

    I heard recently that the State of MI was going to pass a new law allowing us to modify SXS's in Michigan to make them street legal.

    I'm wondering if anybody has accomplished this? And if so, how expensive and difficult was it?

    Thanx!

    I saw that SuperATV had a kit they made and you can view the price on their website.

    Edit

    Not sure if it still applied but I grew up with the LEFT HAND signaling kit built in. We were born with it ready to drive!!!

    Isn't it still accepted as a legal method of signalling. I use it here on my roads as required. I see too many vehicle that a clueless as to their high tech signalling lever!

    It's more expensive, but I would get a ryco kit from ruthless motorsports. I have used it on my gen1 wolverine and I'm currently installing it on my x4.

    A number of years ago I bought a plated Honda 650R from Michigan. The owner had it safety checked by the state. Usually it is the certificate of origin VS a title that can be a stumbling block.

    Law passed at beginning of this yr.
    If I remember correctly: dot windshield (safety glass), wiper maybe squirters, horn, turn signals (fnt/bk), dot tires, bumpers, license plate holder with light.

    Now, all machines can ride on shoulder of all roads (25 mph) other than state roads. ( m roads / interstates ). Just got back from west branch n st Helen. Rode everywhere. In town - out of town...passed police....no issues.

    Hi Dozer,

    I thought I heard that the new law also included some requirement for the rear end...like it must not have a posi-track. That’s why I’m wondering if anybody has successfully plated their Wolverine under the new law.

    Nice discovery kdt...thank you for taking the time to find it. I am bad trying to navigate the internet trying to find those kinds of things.

    Wolvie Hunter, I don't see any mention of posi rear end. Its just saying a diff required, meaning no go-carts can get plated for roads.

    Ok. I thought the diff required meant that it couldn’t be a posi-trac.

    Thanks for the clarification.
