I live in DE, and apparently you can ride in some of the state forests in NJ if you have licensed bike.

So, I was wondering if anyone has tried to license (tag) a YZ 426, and if it was a pain, or not too bad. Do you know of any good dual sport kits ???

I guess, I should address this question to people on the east coast. I know there are states ( CO ) where even a scud missle can be legal with little fuss.

Thanks for your time.

I live in MD and I got my YZ taged about 2 months ago. I used the Baja kit. They also sold a WR retro fit stator and cdi (which was cheaper than getting it from the dealer) so that I could run the lights. I purchased a WR can and headlight from one of the WR riders on this site. The can (with core) is necessary to get pass the sound requirements. And I wanted the light so that I could use it instead of the Baja light after I passed inspection. For the most part the instructions were fairly well and included pictures which help. I took my time with the installation. I can't see it taking anyone more than two evenings after work to complete. Oh, I did have to get a kickstand from Baja and some bicycle mirrors from Sports Authority. The inspection went very smooth. I was worried about my certificate stating off road use only, but with the inspection slip I had no problems. I don't think I lost any of the YZ snap with the WR stator and I think the extra flywheel weight helps in the woods.

Good luck!

I set up my 00 426 with the WR stator and ign. and lost 3 miles per hour top speed, even switched back to the YZ stuff to verify and the speed came back. Other than that, all was about the same as the above!!!
