Hey scott, well I finally got on this forum. I have to pick up my sprockets for the bike monday, and I will probly get the tires at the same time. I can take some pic's too of my build up of the xr if you want? I will have to stop by next week to see the bike since you have the tires and rims almost done. I will give you a call next week.

I don't understand this since I am a state inspector (for inspection stickers) and to pass inspection by the book you need more than that like turn signals, hi beam indicator, etc..
We'll see how it goes.. have you done the stator rewind yet?
i'm considering running a battery and no stator rewind since it's kick start. battery jsut for head/tail lights.
pics of your CRF?
i posted pics somewhere around here. i believe you will need a mirror in addition to what your sheriff said. haven't done the stator rewind....the bike is torn completely down now. the reason to rewind teh stator is so it produces enough power to run the lights. i don't think you can run full lights with just a small battery and no rewind....look it up over on TT or smjunkie...should be able to find out. i'm planning on getting a rewound stator and heavier flywheel, SMALL battery...like a camera size, and a voltage regulator. stil deciding what headlights / taillights to run.

Mad Max is right you have to have at least one mirror, you will have to have a brake pressure switch also, as far as the staror goes if you run the bear minimum, like just the front light and and tail light you wont need a battery. I can post some pic's later of the pressure switch and a couple of other things I have to make a bike street legal.

I would definately recommend a higher power stator, you can get them from Ricky Stator http://www.rickystator.com/ he is brilliant on this stuff and will be more than happy to advise you on whatever you want to do. If you don't put a rewound stator then you will probably only be able to run a 35W head light that will be dim as heck. If you don't use a significant battery then your lights want stay on for the require 5 or 10 minutes when you shut the engine off. Don't ask me why they require this but they do. Also if you ever want to run LED type lights (signal, tail, brakes) then you want be able to without good clean filtered DC power which is the job of the battery.

I don't know about you but I really like the idea of people being able to see me when I'm on the road and these SMs are already so small that they are really easy to miss. So the more light the better.

Getting it licensed is pretty easy. I've done three of them. Get the lights right, horn, mirror, high beam indicator, a place for the plate to be mounted with a light on it, bring it to an inspection station (preferrably not a mc shop) ask them to inspect it and give you a "green sheet" then take that green sheet and your title to your local court house and tell them that you want to re-title and license your bike for the road.

Often they don't think or know that is can be done but it can they will probably have to call Austin or ask someone how to do it, but it can be done.

Thanks guys for adding more info to this thread, every bit is helpful. Also I know these guys and I have haerd them name off some good comapnies to go to for parts. Please guys, feel free to add as much info as you want, and anything that I forget. XRCajun knows more about the legalizing thing b/c, as he said, he's done 3 of them! That will be new to me, and that is the reason why my first SM conversion was already street legal, I didn't want to get caught up in that the first try and get discouraged.

James, hope you didn't mind the mention earlier.

House of Pain - feel free to ask any questions, or at least let me know what part you need info for... parts selection, wheels, suspension, motor, SM-specific stuff like axle sliders, etc..

The CRF is by no means a street machine, so the street riding would be for very short, daytime bursts. As I said, it will be the last part of the conversion if at all. The CRF motor is a race motor in every sense of the word. Long, high engine speed cruises will be inevitible in houston. If I do the street conversion, I will first have put on a tach and experimented with some radical gearing, since the gearbox is a 4-speed, and stock gearing is like 14/48 or something similar. With the gearing it has now, I would assume that it would PEG OUT at like 70-75. I will try gearing it around 15/40 or 16/40 and go from there. My plan for this bike will be 90% track/10% road.
I'll keep everyone updated. My "correct" spokes should be in monday or tuesday, so I plan on bringing it to the BBQ for anyone that wants to definitely see it, PM me and I'll shoot you my cell #.
Tahnks to all for the intrest!

What about a ignition switch? I am planning on doing this when I pick up the bike this week. I am going to order the baja designs kit unless somebody has any better suggestions

You don't need a ignition switch, unless you just want one. The baja kit is not a bad kit and it is convenient. You can do it your self a lot cheaper but you have to peace it together. So it is up to you.

Squanto - I'd like to swing by sometime and see what you think about keeping my XR dirt only or plating it. I'm just so undecided...
