my new 07 wr450f -
Posted April 06, 2010 - 10:36 AM
I just picked up a slightly used 07 wr450F, it already has all the free mods done, IMS tank, yz exhaust and Header, hand guards, etc,etc.
However it is not plated yet
I live in Arizona and need to be plated to connect all my trail rides.
I have reviewd many many posts regarding dual sport kits but am hoping to get an update.
From what I can tell there are 4 premade kits out there :
Baja Designs - very $$$'
Trick Dual Sport - also $$$, I like the accesory plug for GPS connection
Dual Sport America - Better price ...anyone buy one of these ? Includes Key switch
Rocky Mountain offers a "Tusk" kit which seems very generic -only $159.00
Many post recomend building my own kit...but I dont know how ??
I'm leaning towards the Baja Designs just cause I'm familiar with it.
Anyone know where there's a post including instructions on building my own kit ?
Thanks...WR Newbie ( Been riding BRP's forever)

i took extra time with making extensions on some of the blinker wires so they weren't tight under or behind the headlight. just my anal-ness with it. i also located the horn to one of the screws where the AIS was mounted before because the fork mount was an issue with the headlight plastic. radio shack has all the wire and connectors you need to make it custom ... added 5 bucks to my install...should have taken pix...sorry.

****DUAL SPORT AMERICA ARE CROOKS (from my personal experience and many others on the web) maybe a trip to CA is in the future, it is only a few states away ****

Dual Sport America has been officially banned by me and all other inmates here in AZ !
Initial ride report here : http://www.advrider....ad.php?t=568149
I went with the "Home Made" kit as Arizona MVD no longer does Vehchle inspections.
$10.00 rear view mirror, and brake light switch...Total cost at AZ MVD was $33.00 to transfer title, get street legal plate and OHV sticker. Love AZ :-) I still need to buy a "plate holder to bolt on to the fender.
Hey Goner and Kawi380...shoot me PM on ADV rider and we can go ride ?
