The mileage limitation and 48 State bikes are relatively new so a pre 1980 shouldn't have any problems.
When Yamaha got fined $26,000,000 for bringing bikes in from Nevada (even tough modified to comply with California spec) it showed various counties how to make money by screwing people over with 'out of state' vehicles

Ok great, thanks!  Is 1980 the cut off for 48 state bikes?

I don't remember but think it may be later, some time in 90's when major changes happened.
The only reason I know anything at all is due to some research I did while working as an instructor at MMI,
Florida is way too lenient on some modifications (usually jacked up 'mudboggers' not even close to legal specification)

Just a thought on the KZ750 twin, you'll want to skip over any 83's.  They changed them to belt drive that year.

Have you seen this? This bike has been on craigslist for months, maybe a year? He recently reduced the price. It could probably be had for cheap. I live close by, I could take a look for you.

I did, but back then it was listed or $2500 I think it was probably at least 9 months ago
