WR450f street legal kit for $159.99

23 posts in this topic

I just had a buddy inform me of a complete street legal kit on Ebay for only $159.99. He just got one for his bike and loves it. I just bought one. Will let you know how it goes. If it is as good as he says it will be a score. Has anyone else tried them.:moon:

that looks JUST like the stuff you can get from rockymountain.... I think you can get all the pieces separately, it is their house brand "tusk" that makes it. you should add them all together and see if your getting a good deal or not... would be curious to know.

Does the handlebar switch include a switch for hi/low beam? It looks like it does but nothing is mentioned about it in the item description. I contacted the seller about this yesterday but he has not responded yet.

It probably is. The "item location" is Santaquin, which is just a few miles from the RM warehouse. Still nice to have it all packaged up.

This same kit is sold by Rockymountainatv.com for the same price - their part # 1285760004. There are very good installation directions in .pdf format on their website.

Crap! I ordered mine from e bay and paid the $13 shipping when I could have gotten it from RM with free shipping. Oh well, it should be worth it anyway.

So you just register it as an on road vehicle at the DMV? I live in CA.

I'm in NC but you have to get it inspected, notorized bill of sale, off to DMV, tell them you have no title and hope for the best. You can search for CA.

I received the kit today, will take my time putting it on the bike, since it is still below freezing in the garage.

Little more work than just that - you will need the following and then some.

1. Green Sticker 4 Stroke

2. Certified Brake and lamp inspection

3. Stickers that state the bike complies with BAR and CA or Federal air act (don't remember for sure).

4. All the different DMV Based forms

5. bring the bike to the DMV for inspection and Register the bike as a Dual registration.

I get a lot of heat every time I mention the site that can assist in this endeavor, because - A. there are non-believers B. just negative to begin with C. "it's a scam" and D. The old one liner " I know a guy, who knows someone who got there plate taken away".

No worries...Be Happy!

Oh Yeah - The kit is on RM's site - it's under their house brand TUSK as the mfg.

The sticker on the bike needs to say it meets Federal and CA emissions for ON-road.

I have the kit, and am currently installing it. Seems to be a good kit so far. There seems to be a lot of "Modify as necessary" type of situations. I think it would be easy for the mechanically inclined. Im stuck on the hi/low wire installation. Does anyone know if the stock headlight for an 06 has high/low capability?

I have been looking into that kit to put on my WR250 here in UT. I asked the safety inspection guy at the local Yamaha dealership what he thought of it and he said its a decent kit, but it is not a complete kit as is does not include a high/low beam headlamp or a DOT approved speedometer. Plus you have to make sure you have DOT tires. I don't know if those are the same requirements for other states or not..
