Add an ignition key. It's very easy to do.

I have the same bike and am debating on whether to dual sport it, or upgrade to a newer 450 with e-start.

May I ask what light kit you are using, price, and which vendor you got it from. Also any problems you had on install.

Yeah. I'm not into the Baja Designs kit. I'm sure I would break it easily. I'm considering a kit from Procycle. They have low profile LED signals, and I found LED plate lights online.

I'm still debating the time and monetary investments in doing this, so just getting input from others that have.

The Baja Designs kit is the most durable kit out of the box, by far.they offer optional turnsignal types, rear tailight versions, etc.
Next would be the Dakar Trick kit.

Many kits use really cheap parts (dual sport america) that break while you are installing the kit.

BD is better because:

- wire gauge is thicker, and loom is longer for easier install
- all brackets are steel, no pot metal
- all parts are rebuildable if needed
- relay is quality (not chinese)
- optional key switch is quality
- all wire terminations are robust. They don't bend or break installing/removing

I like my BD kit but if you get a little dirt in the combo switch the blinkers and headlamp don't always want to work. Another option is http://www.trickdualsport.com/. They will custom build you a kit in what ever color plastics you want!
