Motorcycle Law question: How do you make a Yamaha WR 450 F street legal? Answer have a C or 3 in the 8th digit of your serial number and your home free.
Hot weather Moose Sahara Stealth ($82)
Street legal in Idaho
If you are wanting to park it for a while you will need an ignition switch. I got mine from Baja designs it was part number 12-8001
For Idaho all I need is a brake light, mirror, and horn.
The 2005 WR450 has a two filament tail light so all you need is a brake light switch for the foot control. Baja Designs sells a kit (part number 14-9000)
I also needed some street legal knobby tires
I chose the Dunlop D606
front tire size is : 80/100 21 rear tire :110/100 18
rear tire :130/90 18

chain: DID X-ring (520VM-120 $132.56 on 3/30/10 at PowerSports, $7.61 for Conn Link)
I also wanted foot pegs in case a buddy needed a lift. I found them at Baja designs part number 21-0078. There was no picture, but they look like the footpegs for the XR450
If you want turn signals and everything above try buying the Baja Sport kit.
Rumor has it that the key ignition from a TTR125 part number 5HP-82510-00-00 will work on the WR450
I found one at the link below
Baja Designs will sell kit replacement parts (order the key kill switch and brake light and horn separately
call Baja designs at 760-560-2252 to see if the will sell the parts of their dual sport kit for the wr450.
Key Kill switch (replace your kill switch with the Keyed switch below)
