I have an 07 YZ450F and I'm wanting to dual sport it and make it street legal. Has anyone done the conversion yet? I called Baja Designs and they said they don't make a stator for an 06+up yz450f. They said I could try running a moose racing stator but it will perform poorly at idle and at low rpms due its low watt output. I suggested to the tech about installing an 07 WR's stator in which he then said would work except that I would have to get a WR CRANK to make it work but otherwise didn't get into great detail how to go about it. So there very well could be other stuff to do as well possibly.

Has anyone tried the moose stator + has anyone done the WR stator/crank conversion to make there dualsport kit work for their 06+up yz450f?

Depending upon what I hear from you guys, I think I'll try the moose, and if its sucks and burns up the stock stator, I'll try to convert it to WR parts if it doesn't cost too much. Haven't looked at the cost of an WR crank yet. I saw the WR stator price which was reasonable. LEt me know if any of you guys know anything. Thanx

A conversion to a WR flywheel/stator requires the WR crank (at least the left half), the flywheel, stator, and left crankcase cover, plus misc. little bits, totaling roughly $700.

Then there's this;

Yeah I tried looking online on the Florida DMV website and could only find a 2006 Florida Motorcyclist Handbook in which it stated at a minimum you are required to have a headlight, a tail light, a brake light, two turn signals, a horn, DOT approved tires and it must have a front and rear brake. It didn't mention anything about EPA noise requirements, smog requirements, whether or not if a two stroke could work, or if it has to be a four stroke. I know there are two stroke street legal scooters out there so it could be possible. My But yeah, I'll will check with the DMV my next day off, which is probably in a week. The only reason I m talking about two strokes is because my other bike is a 2001 cr250.
