I've seen a few Stella's for sale here in Southern California and I have emailed the sellers asking them how they got the Stella registered here in CA. Here was thier response:
"We ran the odometer forward to 8000 miles. If a 2-Stroke comes in from out of state with more than 7500 miles, the CA DMV will allow it in."
Is this true or not? I've never heard of this before.
