it cost me $800 for the kit and the install. That being said, I was a sucker for paying the shop to do it. You should be able to search the forms and find the cheapest way to put together a kit. It's pretty much an entirely electrical process to get teh kit on, so if you are good with diagrams, I would do it yourself.

a rough estimate would be:

$30 front signals
$30 rear signals
$20 horn
$100 speedo (enduro computer)
$5 licence plate bracket
$5 licence plate light
$150 DOT tires
$20 mirrors

= $360 + a lot of electrical tape, patience and time.

Good luck

Since you live in TX, you don't have to spend a whole lot. You can buy a kit which are fairly expensive, or you can buy a few parts and do it yourself. For a TX plate all you need is 1 mirror, a hi/lo beam headlight which you already have on the WR, you need to buy a switch housing for use with the headlight, a tail/brake light and a compression switch on the rear brake to operate the brake light, a horn, and of course DOT legal tires.

I spent approximatly 350.00 on my 2003 WR450, I live here in Texas too.
connector to use the Hi/Lo beam on my headlight $4
Horn $8
handlebar switch (you can go cheaper here) $40
speedometer (may not be required in Texas, I had a cheap bycycle one the first time I had it inspected) $100
mechanical brake switch $10
license plate bracket (you could make your own cheaper) $25
License plate light $3
DOT tires $150
Mirror $10

You will need insurance and an inspection.
Like the above poster said, just a little patience and time is all that is needed to wire it up yourself.
