Make sure you have everything to pass a motorcycle safety inspection. Get insurance. Then go get it inspected and tell them you need a 130u or out of state inspection form. Take dirt title 130u and insurance to DMV and tell them you want to register this for street. And enjoy

It really is that simple. As long as it's a four stroke. For me State Farm didn't have a 450 sf-x listed in their system so they found a model close and ran with that. I guess depending on who inspects your bike will determine what all you need. Lights, signals, horn, dot tires, should be sufficient. I had a tach mounted already so I'm not sure if it's required to have speed reference etc. As stated above bring inspection cert and proof of insurance and they will hand you a plate right there. Receive the new title in the mail a week later.

Also I can't remember if it requires high/low beam. Maybe someone will be able to clarify. If not just look up the state requirements for motorcycles and use it as a guide line.

I've had to take a couple of bikes through inspection recently. You need the following:

Hi/lo headlight
Tail light
Brake light
Mirror
Red rear reflector
License plate light
Horn
DOT tires

Gauges and turn signals aren't required by statute, but you may get a hard time from the inspection station.

I had a inspector turn me down because my flush mount signals could not be seen from the front of the bike with your head inches away from my head lights Next shop could careless if I had signals. Neither ever mentioned the absence of mirrors.

I also had a shop try to fail me for lack of turn signals. Pulled out the list printed from the state's site and they passed me.

It's really easy in Texas to get a bike like that street legal. Hardest part is actually having the title in hand from the start.

Don't need turn signals or a high and low beam headlight. I wired mine up for hi/low but found that you only need a running headlight to pass inspection.

Then you need a running tail light and a working brake light. You need a license plate light, too. Also need a horn. Honking bicycle horns will pass inspection in Texas. Don't need a speedo or tach. All in all, it's pretty simple.
