Finally Finished* - My Street-Legal Retro/Hurricane 450

61 posts in this topic

I put an asterick on the finished part, 'cause are we ever really finished with modding our bikes? Actually I'm still waiting for PWR to come out with their stage 3 cooling kit for the Yamaha 450's. I might change my headlight setup too, to something less bulky so I can run a regular front plate. I have a billet stop switch on order to hook up as an ignition interupt for speed shifting (plugs right into my Graves ignition), also a bilet gold anodized rear brake clevis. I even have a lightspeed carbon fiber gas tank heat shield I still need to cover with CV4 heat shield foil sitting in my garage. But for now, it's finally plated and on the road!

Many more pics of some of the mods in my garage.

CRF - man, I'd scare myself if I added it all up, but it's probably getting somewhere close to what the bike itself cost!

Man do I wish we had a track here in Hawaii - you can bet I'd be on it! i had a blast last year when I rode at Grange in Calif. Might have one possibility - One of my friends is converting his KTM to SM, and he has the keys to our police emergency vehicle operations course - about the size of a cart track, and no dirt, but it's better than nothing. Besides, we'll be "training"!!

I'm not sure, but I think they might be out: http://www.motosport.com/offroad/product/PWR-STAGE-3-COOLING-KIT/?prodId=885753&cat0=DIRT&sMMY=YAMAHA;YZ450F;2007. Maybe they are just listed. That is one sweet looking bike. I've never been a fan of yellow yamahas, but that one looks pretty sweet!
