Nice! Give us a rundown on what type of kit you used and if you think the installation was as advertised. I need one myself. Tim
I got the kit from Baja Designs and I am totally happy with the install and the final product. I've read some unhappy stories about Baja Designs but it's my opinion that they have improved on the kit. They have phased the 2 outputs of the stator into a strong DC output. This allows the battery to get a nice charge while at the same time putting out a strong signal to all lights. I also installed a nice digital speedometer which was $75. I put the entire kit on in one night with the exception of the brake light switch which took about 30 minutes the next day.
The downside. The kit was ~425 after speedometer and the stator that I had to send back to them in order to have them float the ground.
The DMV experience was great and it made it all worth it. I hate to post something like this when I see some many guys struggling to get their bikes on the road in other states. If you have anymore questions I'll answer anything.

its nice to see where your from, (oregon).. and that its was easy to go through DMV. Im in cornelius about 15 min. away from you. Maybe when that time comes I can meet with you and you can give me some pointers on the street kit. My Girlfriend lives on hall Blvd. so I think Im kinda close.
I sent you a PM with my contact info. Shoot me an email when you wanna talk about getting something together for your bike. Or any other questions in general..

Installing the Baja kit was easy for anyone that can read directions and has good attention to detail to make sure things get hidden well.

Feel sorry for all you guys that have to go to so much trouble to ride your bikes on the road. All WR's, CRFX's, EXC's etc etc are road reg'g from the dealer here in Oz.
Yamaha even sell a road registered YZ250WR which is a 2 smoke MX bike with lights and a quieter muffler.

Is that the stock Exhaust plug in the muffler? Yank that puppy out, put in a GYRT of PRO Moto Billet Insert, Cut down the throttle stop, and unplug the grey wire or your new bike will run like a TTR 225. Search for free mods for more details.
Yes, it's the stock cork. The priority was to spend cash on getting it street legal. Adding a can to get 3hp wasnt a high priority just yet. I had been riding around the neighborhood while making some adjustments and having it uncorked wouldnt make the neighbors too happy. I have done the free mods with the exception of the grey wire.

Oh, one more thing, what tires are you going to run? The stock ones will be bald as an egg at about ten miles on the road. Your bike looks great, good job! I like how nothing sticks out too far.
I'm not sure what tires to get. That's my next research project as well as getting some exhaust on it. If anyone has any suggestions I'm open to anything. I'll probably have to hit up the SuperMoto forum or one of the others. I'll obviously do a 'search' first....
Thanks, I worked pretty hard to get this all going and it paid off finally.
