Once you get everything complete, you will have to have a local sheriff's deputy or city policeman sign off the checklist. You can call a local dept and they may send someone out to your house to check the bike over.
My friend and I only added a pressure brake light switch to our WR's, and we found a sheriff shooting radar on the side of the road. We went up to him and asked if could approve our bikes. We told him that we only ride trails, and just want to be street legal to go to town and get gas. The sheriff followed us to our homes, and signed off after only asking to see the headlights working & brake light working.
I think we found either a forgiving cop or a cop who appreciates bikers, or he was clueless of what to check for.
Anyhow, we ride the streets and have not been bothered over here in the Grand Haven area.
We have no turn signals, no horn, no DOT tires, no mirrors, loud exhaust, etc.
Good luck, send me your email address and I can send you some pics.

The bike has hi/low beam, tail and brake light, horn and the smallest mirror on the left side that doesn't do a dang thing for seeing out of. No blinkers or plate light. I haven't ridden on the street much yet. I don't want to tear the rear tire up that is on it quite yet.
Good luck and have fun.

you definitely don't need a kit to dual-sport your WRF in michigan. excluding the (not-really-necessary) DOT tires, you can probably do it for around $100 or so.
couple of links might help you regarding the brake light switch:
and also read through this thread for info on a great license plate bracket...
finally, in my sig is a link to my writeup of the annual Six Days of Michigan, which you may want to look into riding this year. it's tons of fun.
