Well I am in the process of selling my street bike in order to buy the YZ450FX. Now my situation in maybe unique, maybe not. I love motorcycles, dirt-bikes, etc. Right now have a 2014 Honda CRF250L it is a great little dual sport bike. It is lacking though in power, is heavy etc. but it does what it is suppose to and does it well. I really enjoy the bike. I have it modded, FMF exhaust, Mega bomb header, fuel controller, sprockets, new clutch etc. So it is a pumped up little bike.
Anyway, I live in Maine. we have four very different seasons. I do not have a truck, no trailer (can access one if I want) so that is why I like Dual sport. I want a bike like the YZ but street legal, I don't want a KTM in order to get what I want.
Also another reason I want this bike is it has a kick stand, electric start, and I can mount it to a Timbersled kit for the winter.
So I am have having the dealership put a baja kit on it, DOT tires, trail tech 2 endurance cluster on it etc. everything to make the bike street legal here in Maine. So this will allow me to get to the trails to ride. It is only going to be on pavement to get me to the nearby trails. But in the winter it would be setup with a Timbersled.
So my questions.
1. Has anyone used the Tusk dual sport kit on a off road bike?
Dual Sport Armory sells a kit for this bike. for $170.00 It is everything but a head light. Signal lights are LED.
Baja designs sells a kit for this bike, has everything except for a mirror, and headlight. Signal lights ARE NOT LED. The kit is $375.00 and $100.00 for the headlight. Mirror another $10.00
So that is Baja Designs total $485.00
That's a big difference.
Is the quality that different? What would you all buy? Anyone have experience with Dual Sport Armory?
2. Should a person add the radiator fan from the start?
3. Anyone have experience with the YZ450 model as a timbersled? If so, any must have fore the winter months.
Thank you all for your help.
