I've got all of the street legal stuff (blinkers, horn, flasher, etc.) mounted on the headlight assembly and a single connector so I can quickly swap from headlight to a YZ number plate. On the rear I have a similar setup, everything on the rear fender w/ a single connector. I slip on a YZ fender when racing.
I have never ridden a DRZ, but I have seen the factory race bikes and they can be made to kick butt as well. Might cost a bit more to get there though.

Street legal is easy with either bike. Go to your secretary of state and get the cahange of title form and it will outline exactly what you need to do to your bike. In Michigan all that you need is High/Low headlight, Tail/ brake light, horn, license plate illuminator, mirror, and DOT approved tires. Also if you know a police officer if you get close he may just sign off for you on the change of title.
I wasn't lucky enough to know a police officer so I made all of the changes. Total cost was 25 dollars for an e-line brake switch and then some wire connectors, a switch and a plastic stick on mirror, and a plastic bicylce horn. I garbage picked the DOT tires from th shop near my house and threw them out after inspection.

Then it all came off but the standard WR lights, brake light and mirrors. That is enough to get by for the kind of dual sport riding I wanted to do. Keeping it bare bones simple.
