Here is a pic of mine
They have 2 streetbike tire liners (to anchor the studs)as well as long wood screws with washers to hold the side knobs from rolling over. The tires have also been "profiled" (shaved on the lefthand side)to allow for easier transition from straight to turn.
I may be able to hook you up if your interested...

I have an 04 wr450 and would like to set it up for the ice. Give me all your idea's to make this thing rip. Thank's.
Are you looking to race it or just get it out for some winter rides?
The more serious you are the more you need a serious solution. Like these.
However, if you are just going out for some casual rides, you may be able to get away with buying your own box of screws (Price=?) and screwing them into your existing tires. Not the best solution, but would work.

You refer to "drill and tap screws" for ice riding. I've never heard of them. Can you provide a photo, brand name, link, or some other way that I can get a better idea of the technology to which you refer?

The way to go is to buy a set of wheels on eBay and then have tires done. The tires are an emmer effer to mount.
BTW make sure you get tire wraps and NEVER use the tires any where but ice. The tires need sharp edges to get traction and just rolling across pavement or cement will ruin them.
The amount of traction on ice is unreal.

if you're racing you'll need the CMRC type, and the studs must be protected from everything except ice, but for long lasting fun, you can't beat the sled studs.
