Ok guys im wanting a bike to ride to work, I have been looking for a WR but they are expensive when compared to a used YZ. Im curious what it would take to make the YZ street legal? or can this not be done?

That depends entirely on your jurisdiction. Check with the local motor vehicle department to see what can be done, and what can't.

As far as getting a YZ lit up, read:

+1 to what Gray said. Start by checking with your local DMV or state patrol for the requirements. It may or may not be possible to do it in your home state. If it is possible, it may cost as much to modify it as buying something else.

Also, ask if you purchase a street legal modified YZ from another state, if you can get a title and registration for it and ride it on the street there. Some states are yes, some are no.
