Wired up the hi-low beam, horn, rear pressure switch with in-line fuse and wired in the licence place bracket light. Everything works as it should.

Last significant thing left to do get the title in hand, inspection then get the plates.

Again, BIG thanks to Chad and Steve for their help!
Anytime! I think this SUMO thing is about to blow up!! By far the funnest bike I've ever had.....well I can remember being just as excited about the fiddy also.

Thanks! Chad TheMagicMan has hooked me up and I would definately recommend getting with him for supermoto parts. Other than that, some of the little things were cheap ebay purchases.

Already blew it up! Chad rebuilt it with Kibbles so hopefully it will last for a lil bit!

I got my parts from Chad also. Best price around on DNA wheels. Guarantee that!

That would be cool. I have a factory rear brake light I just replaced the banjo bolt switch on so once I get that going I'm guessing I just need to tie into that one?

I'll snap a couple pics and post them up. Easier to see how we did it.

Here's a quick clip I took with my phone last night while putting the WR450 through it's paces. Managed to roll a couple decent stoppies as well. The front break is great but I do need to bleed it as it did start to fade at the end of the night.

Insurance shopping today. Looks like progressive will be the cheapest for this bike. FYI, Dairyland Insurance (normally one of the cheapest) does not cover converted supermoto bikes like these for on-road use.
