    With it under 7500 miles, he will just have to pay the remaining sales tax that AZ does not collect. Bought a KLR 650 (350 miles) and my F250 pickup in AZ last year. No problems registering in CA. CA just wants to see the EPA sticker and their tax money!

    CADreaming:

    Make sure you get to DMV within 10 days of bringing the bike into CA to get your temp registration if you do not have the title. AZ takes two months to get titles to you or your bank. If you do not go to DMV within 10 days, the charge you a penalty. I went in on day 11 for my truck but was able to talk them out of charging me the extra money. I had to fill out a form explaining why I did go in within the 10 day time frame.

    I've had my 2015 800 XCX since Aug. 2015. As soon as I got it home I ordered a Sargent seat and a Puig windscreen. So much better.
    I dropped the front sprocket one tooth and added a Booster Plug. I woke that triple up!
    The best thing I did was have Mike's Dirt Bike Suspension work on my suspension. New springs and valves. The stock suspension might be alright for a 140 lb. person. But it is like on a rail now. And will surprise you how good it handles a twisty road.
    I also went tubeless on my back tire. I went with the Outex kit. No problems what so ever.
    I absolutely love my Tiger! I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.
    After the initial run today I can concur the gearing is a bit low so dropping a tooth in the front sprocket may be a change I make The driving mode settings are interesting but I havenÂ’t really opened it up yet while break in. Ride to Sedona today. Yeah I am Liking

    Dropping one tooth on the front sprocket made a big difference. First gear just seemed a little too tall.
    Every time I ride the Tiger it puts a big smile on my face. Probably a good thing I have my helmet on.
    I hope you find some nice twisty roads on your way home after your break in period. I think you will be pleasantly surprised how well it handles. I prefer my Tiger any day on a twisty road over my ST.
    Have a safe trip home and enjoy the ride.
