I live in Las Vegas , Nevada , I want to street legal my 2004 wr450f, Does some one sell a good kit??? I have a carbon pro white bros. exhaust on it now, will I have to change that to get it licensed? Has anyone else in Nevada went through the process of getting one street legal? Is it a pain in rear or what? Please help!!

Trick Dual Sport...but all I did to my 03 was add a brake switch and wired it in, a license plate light, left mirror for AZ. We don't need turn sigs, and I haven't put a horn on yet...check the NV laws and see what you need. Saves money and less weight...

I would suggest a kit with LED signal lights if you do any trail riding. I have to replace signal light bulbs at least once a month.

I got my kit through my dealer, so you can always go through a local guy if you want.

Good luck

You can use your stock headlight and tailight with Baja-Designs one but you do have to do the stator mod, no problem though for most. It's a bit pricy but its a nice complete kit (less mirrors) and I love it, no problems with my lights blowing yet..YET....lol

I used the Baja Designs. I am still having some issues with them, but the install including the stator mod were pretty easy. Somebody here in TT somewhere had a link to make your own, I kind of wish I saw it before i Purchased a kit.

I am currently looking for info as well. I am confused is the stock headlamp and taillamp legal? From what i understand all I have to add is some blinkers and license bracket and a reflector and two mirrors and I am set? The bike I bought is already registered, but the state it was regersterd in did not require blinkers or mirrors. So I am hoping to just add those and be all good I am hoping for an easy process

you can use the stock headlight and tailight, however you have to wire up a brake light to work and a high/low beam with indicator, signal lights, mirrors, and liscence plate bracket and a horn should get you legal. (oh yeah the brakelight and headlight suppose to work with the engine stalled out also)

IMO - avoid the BD kit at all costs. Either make your own or buy a Trick DS. Rewiring the stator is a big mistake. The problem with the BD setup is that running the headlight on DC puts a pretty big load on the rect/regulator and the reliability of the BD regulator is questionable at best. If the regulator fails the bike will not run as the WR450 requires DC for the CDI to function. I believe Trick uses the stock rect/regulator and runs the headlight off the AC output. Dale's setup has lot's of protection (circuit breakers) as well so the chances of damaging the stock regulator are greatly reduced. :excuseme: My setup is home built but wired in a similar fashion and it has proven to be very reliable. PM me with an email address and I'll send a schematic.

Well i have not heard of any BD voltage regulators failing... And most laws state your headlight and tailight must run for up to 5 minutes withe the engine off and that's why they rewire it to run off DC current. The BD wiring harness is very well made and I am happy with my kit (i did have a bad flasher though, they had a bad batch and warrantied it) But laws vary, and most people can't make themselves a complete kit, alot of wiring.

Actually it does happen. Unfortunately when it does the bike is dead. The WR450 is unique in that it is one of the few bikes that requires 12 volts DC for the CDI and will not run if the DC system is out. Don't know about other states but CA only requires that the taillight stay on for 15 minutes without the engine running. BD makes good kits in general but have really struggled with the WR450. I believe the current kit is the 2nd or 3rd attempt. IMO Trick Dualsport makes a much better product for about the same money.

That's cool, has anyone here had their voltage regulator fail? if so it may be a good idea for me to buy one and keep it in my backpack. I think the CDI needs 12volts cause it's a Digital Mapped One, (correct me if im wrong) and BD is making attempt number 4 for the WR kit as their liscence plate bracket, which is aluminum, breaks off after bouncy dirt road driving..... they are going to require a YZ fender and use the plastic bracket and led tailight instead which holds up longer....

If you're looking for a good license plate bracket Scotts makes one that uses the stock WR fender. I've had mine on for literally thousands of miles without a problem. Highly recommended :excuseme:
