Road legal yz450f ??

I want to make my 450 street legal so I can buzz around town on it. Other than register it with DMV for tags and obtain headlight/turn signals what else do i need to do to make it road-worthy? Larger sprocket? It will be around town and occasionally the 20 miles each way to a few other places at 55 mph.

Thanks!!

What year of bike?

How you gonna get this by the Oregon DMV?

its a 2009....we dont have emissions laws/checks here if thats what you mean....if there are other laws then I'm not sure.

In Tx the title to a YZF reads "Off highway use only". If it's the same in Oregon, how do you get them to title it as street legal?

where I live they just need a vin number, police officer verifies it, don't even look at the machine half the time, then you go to the dmv and htey give you plates. Pretty sure I could get my dirt bike street legal without even putting all the crap on it ahead of time.

Exactly. The same is here in Oregon. Trust me, I have looked into it. Plus you're not going to like a yz gearing on the highway... a larger rear sprocket will not help; maybe a smaller one...

deja' vu:smirk:

also there are no light/stator kits made for the 06-09 yz450's that I have heard of. From what I have read on here the only way to do it is to use wr parts which will cost a lot. You would be better off buying a 400sm or an already legal bike.

Ok I just did a WR conversion. Wasn't hard and if you can turn a bolt and have your manual you can do it. I already had a dual sport kit so I hooked it into the WR harness. Let me state this, any after market unit provided for the YZ has had problems. I researched for over a year before I broke down and did the WR parts swap. Good luck and PM if you have any questions.

I seen people post about having tried those and having them fail after a few hours.

Nice work. I'd have to really think about how badly I need a headlight to go through all that, unless I was due for an overhaul anyways. Do they make headlights that will run on batteries only?

Yes they do. In fact there are quite a few people on here that do that... have battery ran lighting kit's that can go for like 6hrs and then when you get home hook them up to a charger.
