Build your own, save a buttload of money. Depending on what you need, you could do it for less than $100. I got mine from Baja Designs, spent over $400, and it didn't hold up well. A friend built his from scratch for a few bucks and his works as well as mine does. And I've had to repair/replace almost every component in the 2 years I've had it. There are probably companies that make beter stuff but damn, have you seen the prices of some of those kits? Some are over $600.

First you need to know exactly what is required to be street legal in your area.

In michigan we need
1) hi/lo beem headlight
2) tailight/brakelight
3) Dot tires
4) mirror
5) horn

On my YZ400 I used:
1) electrex wr stator/flywheel kit $300
2) electrex voltage regulator $20ish
3) electrex brake pressure switch $20ish
4) Acerbis Blitz headlight $75
5) Ufo ktm underfender tailight housing $25
6) Acerbis mirror $15
7) Radioshack personal alarm $15 honda kill switch $5 makes the horn

I got away without the DOT tires. The cop diddn't catch it. I also dont have a hi/lo beam headlight. Although you could wire the 2 bulbs in the Acerbis with a toggle switch to resemble a hi/lo. A cop will never know the diff. Both bulbs are 35w stock on the acerbis.

I dont have blinkers and I dont have a battery. Some areas require these.

Hope some of this helps.
