How to get a Crf450r plated?

Whats up guys,

I just moved to Houston from Southern California and heard you could plate dirt bikes here I was just wondering:

1.)What exactly do I need for it to be street legal? (headlight,taillight,DOT tires, mirrors, horn, etc)

2.)Where do I need to go or who do I need to see to get the bike inspected after I have installed the street legal parts?
Any advice would be really helpful!

Im sure they're a thousand posts like this, but thanks again in advance. Im going crazy seeing my bike sit in my apartment not being rode! Looking forward to hopefully riding with some of you soon!

Needs high beam/low beam tail/brake light horn and a mirror after that go get an out of state inspection form when you get it state inspected. Then bring that form(130u) or something Plus insurance and your title o the dmv and that's about it

I just plated a WR426 last week. and this is my post on ADV on what needs to be done:

The inspection "green sheet" is a VI-30, you WILL need this. You will get this from whomever
inspects the bike.

For inspection, you will need:
one mirror
a horn ( I used a squeeze horn)
DOT tires
High/low beam with a switch
Tail light/ brake light/ plate light
the brake light is *supposed* to be actuated by both the hand and foot levers.

That is all for the inspetion.

The U-130 MUST be filled out. IF you are trading for it make sure you write down/ fill in the blanks with the make model and VIN (stuff you are trading), if trading for something else, make a note of it. A bill of sale will help on this.

As for title or not, I do not know, but a call to the tax office will help with this.

Thanks for the detailed help!... Do you suggest I buy a "street legal kit" for the bike from a site like Motostrano or would it be better to buy the parts individually?

The kits are honestly the easiest way to go. Unless u like building ur own wiring harness and wiring up ur own connectors. Might save some bucks but its worth the frustration. Baja designs, Tusk racing are a few....

You don't need a hi/lo beam. Some of them try to tell you that it is needed but the dmv website has a list of needed equipment and it is not on there. Just take the list with you and show them if you don't want to put a hi/lo switch on there. To really enjoy your new home you should go get a two stroke plated and attend a gun show to buy an ak47 with nothing more than a drivers license and a handshake.

I did not wnat to spend $500 on a kit.

I dont like the style of the headlight most come with, plus the WR already had a front light housing. You can spend from $50 to $150 for a light

I bought the H4 bulb
Got the 3 way light plug from NAPA, for....$8
The tail light/ brake light is a $30 part
$40 for two brake pressure switches
$30 for the Tusk (RockyMountainATV) mini switch (hi/low, turn, horn)
(will add signals on a later date)
I got a set of Pirelli MT21s....$200 for both

1 Mirror....if you actually USE a mirror, I suggest this:
http://www.doubletakemirror.com/
I had an Acerbis laying around.....its suxxors the .


So roughly $210 you can have a kit the way YOU want it, and stupid simple to wire it up.


If you buy the parts, we can have a tech day in my garage and wire it all up in about 2 hours.

Almost forgot, I have an extra H4 plug, if someone is DS'ing (DualSporting) a bike, I will give it to them.
Only catch is you HAVE to be trying to plate one

For the crf450r, i'd probably go with a baja designs kit that some with all that stuff. Unless you don't mind buying things individually and doing the wiring that comes with it. I got spoiled with my WR. Wiring was minimal as it already came with a running headlight and taillight. I just had to wired in the hi-low beam, a horn, pressure switch off my rear brake and into the tail light and then wire in the keyed ignition switch. I also didn't have to worry about upgrading my stator, either, which was nice.

PM me if you need an inspection and don't want to stress over pass / fail or that pesky DOT standard. I got a hookup still...
