Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up. I'm converting my 03 YZ450 that was collecting dust in the garage (I race a 05 CRF 450 right now, I Know, I need to try a 06 YZ :ride: ). The part I thought was going to be hard took ten minutes! Took my certificate of origin and bill of sale to DMV (virginia) and had a title/ registration no questions asked in ten minutes :thumbsup: . Dakar kit is on the way with 17" excels, still deciding on tires. This is going to be a short commuter/ fun bike. If I really like it and feel the need I will do the wr 5spd conversion. Do have one question, can any one recommend a sprocket size with the 17s? I don't mind losing a little bottom end as I wont be racing this at all but don't want to have to run super high rpms for higher speeds. I thought I've seen as low as 40 tooth but no sure. I'll post up some pics as soon as it starts coming together.

Steve
